    I would not assume that's true as there are many people who would jump at the chance to support such a business.

    BS. Let's not pretend racism does not exist and is not a threat to minorities. Let's not pretend that blacks get a fair shake at employment, housing and justice. Let's, instead, live in reality where racism against blacks is very real and transcends all systems. Let's, instead, recognize the threat presented to minorities when the majority can openly wage economic warfare against them.

    Look at the Westboro creeps -- they have zero traction because 99% of people don't believe in what they say or do.
    Westboro harms society as well but it's not an open-to-the-public business, it's a private church.

    To add to my previous post, most of those people would be libertarians.

    In very small numbers, of course. There always will be people who hate whites, blacks, natives, etc.

    No. But a lot of my fellow citizens would, because it doesn't bother them much.

    Hating whites is not racism, it's merely racial bigotry. Racism is a social construct and minorities have no power to institute nor perpetuate majority privilege for themselves; therefore, a black hating whites is of no threat to whites collectively. Without a collective threat, it's an individual act and not an ism.

    Don't get me wrong, I condemn racial bigotry by anyone. But pretending a black hating whites has the same impact on society is plain stupid.
