    All the founding documents would disagree with you, but I'm sure that won't stop you from making **** up again.

    Those doiing business with the public are, Johnny. I suggest you spend some time researching what our courts have said repeatedly about this matter.

    Our courts are the same courts that say the states don't have a right to secede from the union. Which is a straight up lie when the 10th amendment reserves all rights not given to the Feds to the states and the people.

    My view is not because I'm racist nor do I condone such douchebaggery.

    I do respect private property rights.

    Furthermore, I'd rather know if a business is racist so I can spend my money elsewhere. The market would weed these folks out.

    When you legislate it, it's just sent underground.

    It doesn't matter what they have said to be honest.

    If I wanted to discriminate against Black, White, etc, customers, I could do it and get away with it.
    The law doesn't change a person's feelings about other people.

    Bull. ****.

    This "reasoning" can be applied to anything. "The government protects your ass, so they can make you X." It's not hard to figure out Xes even you would find offensive.

    Obviously we need more laws to correct this situation. Maybe a cabinet-level department, too. I'm sure if we throw enough money at it, the government can make the problem go away.

    So will we borrow from China to finance this?
