    Probably not. I certainly would avoid it but if I were low on gas and it was the only gas station around then I might.
    Having opinions all over the map is a good sign of a person capable of autonomous thinking. Felix -2011

    I can't imagine that i'd even question whether a given business discriminates in favor of certain patrons or not. It's just not something that would occur to me.

    If a place was called "No Honkeys Allowed" I probably wouldn't go there because I'd have to assume that I wouldn't be welcome but other than that, I'm not seeing the matter as being a problem....or even a legitimate issue.

    Yeah. Racism exists. It always has and always will but it's such a minor issue (especially in commerce) that it's hardly worth discussing.

    No vote
    "yep, nope" cut it not .
    The poll should NOT be anonymous .
    If this was a century ago and I was living in a backward state, I'd probably ignore the signs. My aunt and uncle did live in the south (Mississippi or Alabama) and they had to inure this hatred and much worse...

    Greetings, Josie.

    Probably not. I'd just figure they had a "burr under their saddle," and whatever they served me wouldn't be fit to eat anyway, so why bother? They could always find some excuse - "this is how we fix ____ for everyone else, so we're sorry we couldn't please your taste." Why fight when you can't win?

    Like in the case of "Semites" you can fill the term in different ways.

    I have to admit I don't conduct extensive background checks on the businesses I deal with, other than to ascertain whether the provide what I need and want.
