    If I'm in the group they're excluding I would suspect patronizing them would be difficult.

    Anonymous poll.
    But the devil in the details is...if the conservatives on SCOTUS someday make it legal to do so, there will be those who do patronize such places (especially my fellow whites where I come from). Yes, those few places would make national news and would be denounced by most...but a few of the blacks would be so offended that they would open up their own businesses which would discriminate by race. Then the white racists would point out what those few blacks were doing and would proclaim to all who would listen, "See! They're doing the same thing!" More white racists would start doing the same thing, opening up their own racist businesses, more blacks would do so in retaliation...

    ...and while many might point at the above and say that's a "slippery-slope fallacy", no thank you, sir, I know what the people are like where I came from. In 1984 - twenty years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act - I went home on leave from the Navy to Shaw, MS, where I graduated high school. Even then, the one doctor's office in town had two doors, one with a "white" sign above it, the other with a "colored" sign above it...and the people of the town still obeyed those signs. If I'd had a brain, I would have called up Time Magazine...but in those days I was still fairly racist, and after all, "that's just the way it was" in the MS Delta.

    So...to all who think that it can't happen again, I've seen it first-hand, twenty years after the passage of the Civil Rights Act. And the MS Delta hasn't changed that much since then.

    You think a black hating whites has the same impact on society, and carries the same collective threat to whites, as the reverse? No one is that stupid, you can't believe that. Thus, you KNOW there's a sociological difference. As racism is a social construct, it cannot be qualified according to an individual act.

    Of course, you have no grasp of racism as a social construct, do you? You think racism is the same thing as racial bigotry, don't you?

    Well, that's very convenient for a member of the majority. Enjoy that privilege you're perpetuating via the denial of sociological reality.

    So much for that vast sociological knowledge you claim. You don't seem to understand grouping. If a white person lives and works in a group where they are one of a handful of whites, they ARE the minority sociologically speaking. So much for that "majority privilege" you seem to misunderstand.

    I think it's idiotic to suggest that people should be the servants of society.

    Idiocy. Majority privilege is systemic and cannot be escaped, localized discrimination can be escaped. See the difference?

    Thus, the context MUST be national or global, not local.

    Except we are not purely national, we are a union of STATES. We are structured to be a union of localities, with the ultimate powers to come from the local up. Can you see the difference? Or have you forgotten this as per usual.

    Obeying laws against damaging society, when one is using public funds and infrastructure for profit, is not "being a servant".

    Henrin busts out the victim card - big surprise.
