Agree with the comments that this is all politics and nothing about correcting social ills. FedGov is unconstitutionally huge and invasive, treating
its own citizens as more of an enemy than other nations. To tell private business whom to do business with, beyond selling hi-tech to our enemies, is
against the law of our land.
But the matter of racism is bigger than that. I personally never hated anyone, esp. on such a ridiculous basis as genetics. And I do believe that
everyone should have the freedom to go wherever they want without being subjected to threatened hostility or verbal harassment, even if allegedly done
in jest. But I draw the line at forcing people to go to "sensitivity training" because that is thought control imposed by the state. If a person

Reagan put it, "Congress is like a baby: an alimentary canal with an insatiable appetite at one end and no sense of responsibility at the
Another wise person whose name escapes me at the moment (I believe it was originally said in ancient Rome) said that once the public coffers are
opened to give to charity, there will be no end to the raiding of public funds, and that's exactly what has happened. The lesson is that even if some
cause is deemed worthy enough to make an exception to the Constitutional limits of the federal government, we must not do so and instead allow the
charities to do what they do best and on the basis of freely given donations. We have become a bloated nanny state, which means the dependents will
always vote for whoever increases their free money, to the point where many of them consider it a basic right to be demanded.
FedGov should protect the borders and little else.
