    Let me repeat my last line, in my last post. I thought it was pretty clear.


    I don't agree with any kind of discrimination, for any reason. I just hate to think that we haven't evolved to the point that this would still be a problem.

    Oh, yes....I think you are making my point, bigots, racists and their supporters....exist in all parts of the US. The conversation today is proving that.

    I got it the first time, and you seem to still ignore my point, those who advocate for discrimination exist in large numbers and are not afraid to state their case.

    The point still is, your "market" solution was not the cause of the ending of Jim Crow, in fact, the economic policies of the South produced slavery, and that ideology caused Jim Crow, the ideology can rear it's ugly head anytime someone spouts off with "I don't like govt (other people) telling me I cannot discriminate against niggers, faggots or anybody else I hate".
    You ought to get your head out of the 1960's, that kind if racism is rare anymore

    I'm sure you think you have a point there. Just because something is legal doesn't mean I endorse it.

    I don't think sagging jeans should be illegal, even though I think it's retarded.

    You use the word "discrimination" incorrectly, you know that? To discriminate means to recognize a distinction between two things. To call someone a "discriminating gentleman " would be a compliment.

    The civil rights crowd running around yelling "that's discrimination" just sound ignorant. /rant
