@ HumanAction: Oh, I don't think anyone`s thinking that laws can be used to force racists to agree that racism is bad. Per Ben Franklin, "He that complies against his will, is of his own opinion still."

The focus of the Civil Rights Act legislation is not to change the opinions of racists, but to protect the civil rights of minorities.

@S4S

Just try functioning in your daily life if the local grocery stores, gas stations, and restaurants--private businesses, all--start refusing you service because they don't like the color of, say, your eyes.

I get what you`re going for, albeit a bit of a slippery slope. I still can`t find any fundamental authority to force other people to offer for sale their private property on any terms other than their own.

I agree that it`s wrong. That being said, I think it`s wrong to force people to agree with me.

@ HumanAction: "I don't think businesses are the property of the public."

They manifestly aren`t. Nevertheless, they operate in the public sphere and are a necessary part of the infrastructure required for a citizen to live a normal life. (Just try functioning in your daily life if the local grocery stores, gas stations, and restaurants--private businesses, all--start refusing you service because they don`t like the color of, say, your eyes.) Therefore, how you run your private business is up to you--provided any services you provide to the public are offered in a nondiscriminatory fashion.

@S4S

Yea, we only really differ in our opinions of whether it should be illegal or not. I suspect it's for different reasons though.

I don`t think public institutions should ever be allowed to discriminate. That being said, I view a private business as the private property of the owner(s).

To me, refusing to serve a customer for some reason is comparable to refusing to allow someone into your home for the same reason. I don`t think businesses are the property of the public.

@ HumanAction: Good thoughts there, which I'm mulling over. This is, of course, a complex (and interesting) topic.

In your knock-out game example, yes, I opt for #2 of your two choices.

Based on your first post, where I suspect we differ is the question of whether or not racist actions that fall short of outright assault--such as refusing to serve a minority in a restaurant--should be illegal as many such acts currently are.

I absolutely feel they should be. If you look at how far this country has come in terms of racial equality in just 50 years, it is astonishing. Without a government-changing revolution, few societies have changed so much so quickly.

I can`t imagine we would have made so much as half that progress without the Civil Rights Acts of 1964 and 1968.
