Essentially he was saying business owners can choose to not serve people based on race but guess what, that business won't be operating for more than

This reminds me of a local bowling ally that was having some problems with young Russian kids .. so the owner put signs up that said Russian were no
longer permitted on the property, and turned away any Russian "sounding" person that came to the doors. They then got sued by some Ukrainians
because they too were rejected, the owner stating "they sounded Russian to me" then said it didn't matter, Ukrainians were not permitted to bowl
there. Well it came down to it was their right. Case never even went to trial.
In another case a local coffee shop refuses to serve police officers in uniform .. their position is clear that if they come out of uniform they get
served, in uniform they get no coffee. People were outraged and boycotted the place but in the end it was legal, within their rights, the cops even
Moral of the story: Segregating your business is dumb and irrational the majority of the time. But it's your business, you should have the right to
hire, fire, serve and trade with anyone you want to. The ironic thing about laws like Affirmative Action that requires me to have a certain number of
African, Asian etc employees is that it's incredibly racist towards Whites. As with the plethora of grants, aid, scholarships etc etc to
minorities. But I digress. It's about personal choice and responsibility.
