And to add to your point, why would anyone want to discriminate? They'd most certainly lose money. What if it's a store run by a white person who
just happens to get a large amount of muslim customers? If he puts up a sign that says "No Muslims", they're going to take their money elsewhere.
If every white owner in that town does the same thing, then they take their dollars elsewhere.
Substitute "white" and "muslim" for any other race/ethnicity and hopefully, you'll be able to see my point.
I think some of the small government folks would be happy under anarchy. That is total freedom from any system of oppression, etc.
You are speaking rationally. Racism is not rational.
What I'm saying is, Chris Mathews and Ron Paul are both right and both wrong. We should have the right to do anything and everything we want...in a
perfect world with perfectly sane people. But, in this world there is more ignorance than intelligence.
In a perfect world, people would have only two kids. But, in this world there are families with five children. So, you've just finished remodelling a
nice three bedroom rental property when a rust-bucket of a chevy van pulls up. Mr. and Mrs. Birth Control Opponents are looking to rent. Their 5
children are named: Crayon On the Walls, Window Breaker, Pyro, Floor Scuffer, and Bathtub Overflower.
By today's law you can't refuse them simply because they have too many kids. Even if every landlord was a caring human being they would still think,
"Well, big families have to live somewhere. Just...not...here."
So, shouldn't you have the right to refuse them? Shouldn't the family have the right to rent your apartment? Without SOME kind of government
involvement, these people would be living in the van. There has to be a law.
