    This thread's a year old, but I must admit, re-reading what I said, I was a bit taken back by that last bit. Out of character for me, but I guess I was worked up.

    And if they simply denied services without a reason, would you know its racist? Would any one tell you?

    Getting rid of these laws only works in a hyperinformed society.

    Nothing, expect a lawsuit since it is actually illegal to discriminate based on race, and you can prove that through filling a law suite and showing that only black people (or anyone) was being discriminated against based on race.

    Actually it's not illegal. The owner just has to call it a private club and require some type of membership documentation.
