None of the Paul-ites can say a thing about this and to undo forced segregation of the schools will take us back.
Public School Civil Rights Act of 1984 - Eliminates inferior Federal court jurisdiction to issue any order requiring the assignment or transportation of students to public schools on the basis of race, color, or national origin.

What's next, Coloured Toilets? Coloured Resturants? Coloured housing? Coloured schools?
Cowtailing with white supremacists is a no no and an automatic non starter for consideration for POTUS, I was actually considering endorsing him for the 12 GOP Nod but after seeing this he is done.
The President is the Chief of the MILITARY. We need a man who understands the military, AND has a strong business sense.
Allowing businesses to not hire black people or not serve
Gays and Hispanics in their restaurants, well that's racist.

He is serving in a capacity as a Representative in the US Congress. His role is only to define the Federal Government's role. It isn't in his capacity at this time, or at the time he becomes president, to legislate on behalf of the states.
So, I can still get behind all of his positions, but I would expect each state to have people similar to Ron Paul that will stand steadfast for their State's Constitution,
It might mean that some states will have laws we don't like or agree with, but that is their right.
So it's well within the right for the State of Texas to bring back their sodomy laws, arresting two consenting adults in the privacy of their own homes?? You agree its well within the States right that they segregate American citizens by force? You have no issue with State governments telling a man where he can purchase private property due to racial zoning laws? You support giving States such power over American citizens? And yet you want t complain about this invasive federal government?

What I have noticed here on ATS is that you can't say anything negative about everybodys hero Ron Paul. It will just get twisted and turned around until people think he is more of the great savior so many people here think he is.
Now i'm not advocating against him or anything, just saying this is the trend I have seen.
Good Luck Tea4one. You are about to become enemy number one on ATS.

The federal government did a great job desegregating schools, didn't they?
the point of the Brown vs Board of education ruling in 54' was not intended to change societal attitudes, it was not intended to end racism, this is a silly argument. The point of the ruling was the end the States ability to mandate or force racial segregation on Americans. What people or kids think or who they wish to associate with is their business, neither the state government or federal government should have business in dictating who people must associate or mix with. So long as all Americans are paying taxes, they should be treated equally in the public arena by government.

Allowing whites only businesses/groups will pull this country apart.
Of course I know your not advocating this.
But having to wear your seatbelt or seeing a "No Diving" sign
is a little different than policies based solely on race or gender.
