So you're the self appointed "fix other people's problems" guy eh? Good to know your house is 100% squared away.


So, in your eyes, one has to be absolutely perfect before helping to solve the problems of others?  Nothing can be worked on concurrently?

The disconnect here is the difference between "I have a problem, please help me with it" and "You have a problem, and I'm going to help you with it whether you see it as a problem or not".



Stop focusing on the business owner. Its not about him. He has accepted a social contract and part of that contract states that if you use OUR infrastructure and you operate a business that serves the public, you can't discriminate. Period. No one CARES who this shiatkicker likes or does not like. He's welcome to bring my burger out and then retreat to the back for a miniature cross-burning using a peice of pound cake and two toothpicks. No one gives a shiat about changing him. He can't use MY money getting the potholes in front of his restaurant fixed and then deny me service. Its not that difficult a concept.

Swanji: Who cares if this guy is a racist asshole?  Why would people want to eat at his restaurant if he's racist, anyway?  Seems like people are missing the point.  If you force this guy to allow everyone into his business, do you think he'll suddenly not be racist?  Will unicorns and butterflies start flying out of his ass?  The best way to hurt this guy is don't patronize his business in the first place.


The point isn't to hurt this guy so much as make an example of him so other people won't try to pull the same crap.

DROxINxTHExWIND: James10952001: PanicMan: Mattyb710: I do not believe there should be laws that control what an individual does with their privately owned property, except in cases of public health and safety.

Discrimination damages the health and safety of a community.  The effects may not be immediate, but they can be severe, even lethal.

So does being an asshole, but how do you outlaw that?

You can't legislate morality.


But you can penalize bigots for discrimination.


Yep, you absolutely can. It's called "not patronizing their business". In other words, don't go there and don't give them your money. You even have the option of not helping them out, should they ever wind up in a position of need.

When did Oklahoma become part of "the South"?

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Southern_United_States

From that article:
[upload.wikimedia.org image 566x365]

[upload.wikimedia.org image 566x365]

I'm pretty sure the guy in the article would enjoy living in the past as well.

You do realize that the Confederacy didn't annex any states after the Civil War?

You cling to your definition of "the South", Kentucky, Times change and Oklahoma is now a southern state.

Call it that all you want, it's still a Western state.

[img.fark.net image 350x230]

No, it's not.


What's the criteria? Is it geography? Is it historical? What sets your dividing lines?

If you want to go with the strictly geographical, then you'll have to use the geopraphical center of the contiguous US. That puts almost all of Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, and California in the southern half of the country, as well as all of Arizona and New Mexico.
If you want historical (meaning the Confederacy), then your own map is incorrect as it includes Missouri and Kentucky (neither of which seceded), and does include West Virginia (which only came into being by their refusal to go along with secession).

Incidentally, the center of the contiguous states in only six minutes of latitude north of the Mason-Dixon line.

Objection overruled!  You opened the Wikipedia door yourself, counselor.

Bane of Boone showed you a map of what was generally considered the south.  (From Wikipedia)  You tried (unsuccessfully) to quote that same article for support of your theory.  (If you RTFCaption of the picture you posted, Oklahoma is considered southern because it was in the confederacy.  It's not shaded in that picture because it was a territory as opposed to a state.)  You argued it was a western state.  Accor ...



Sorry, but the original map shown was also from wikipedia.

Also, in several states women-only gyms have, actually, been ruled illegal. It's a very fuzzy point of law that's being shaken out as we speak.

As opposed to making sexist comments anonymously?

[img.fark.net image 243x207]

Yeah, there's no way that negatively referring to a human being as a piece of female anatomy, intimating that to be such a piece of anatomy is to be weak or inadequate could be considered sexist!

Lady parts aren't actually called pussies, ya know? It's slang that has taken on it's own context.


I've also heard that if you spell an insult "ghey" that magically makes it no longer homophobic.

We have good sense laws, anti-descrimination in the US.  They're designed for the greater good.

They're not moral obligations. They're just laws.

Criticizing someone for something they choose (e.g., political affiliation) = acceptable
Criticizing someone for something they cannot choose (e.g., skin color, etc.) = unacceptable

It's not rocket surgery.

All the time.

Most of Missouri except STL/KC is now (northern MO used to be more like Iowa and Nebraska... it's become much more southern in the last 30 years).  It even gets Florida pretty much right.

If I live in that town he's already TAKING my money every time the street lights on that block light a path to his restaurant's door. Every time the police come to his restaurant to respond to a call about a disorderly patron. Every time he dumps his greasy trap into the groundwater supply...

No one is demanding that he stay in business and serve cripples. He's more than welcome to pack his shiat up and take it to Sochi or some other place where those veiws are tolerated by the people who pay for the lights on his street.

Dancin_In_Anson: jso2897: He will only be forced to serve those he has no reasonable, lawful cause to refuse.

WHY THE FARK WOULD YOU WANT TO BE SERVED BY THIS ASSHOLE?


Because if this asshole has the right to refuse serve me based on my race, ethnicity, disability, etc., then any asshole has the right to refuse to serve me based on my race, ethnicity, disability, etc.  And if any asshole has the right to do so, then EVERY business owner in a given area has the right to do so.  That would leave members of the discriminated-against class with few/no options for food, gas, etc. (e.g., those things classified as "public accomodations") when travelling to (or through) areas where all/most business owners discriminated.  That, in turn, effectively limits the ability of the discriminated-against class to travel to or through such areas.

This is not some sort of baseless slippery slope argument - it is the history of the Civil Rights Act.  Are people this f*cking ignorant of American history?

Dancin_In_Anson: dr_blasto: Society is under no obligation to allow business like this to exist


Who gets to decide this?


His community licenses his business and can revoke that license. That community is under no obligation to license discriminatory businesses and, since that community is part of a much larger national community, they may be obligated to distribute licenses based on national laws as well. The restaurant is also likely required to be ADA-accessible, so, he needs to make sure he is able to serve "cripples" or he's going to run into some other problems.

Enid isn't obligated to license an all-night open-air live rock club in the middle of some residential neighborhood either, so the imaginary all-night open-air live rock club needs to find an accommodating community or zoning. Just like nutty bigot guy, subject of TFA. He needs to find the appropriate community that allows his rules, if that's Belize and not the US, well, he's free to move there.

F that guy in the wheelchair in the video. You were a loyal customer and had no problem with that place until you became crippled and got the same treatment. What an a-hole.

sendtodave: jso2897: Dancin_In_Anson: He owns a private establishment.

He operates a "public accommodation" under the law. The fact that it is privately owned has no relevance whatsoever.

Could he just turn his grease pit into a private "club?"


No. This all happened sixty years ago - all the stupid racist trick thinkable of have already been thought of and shot down.

soupafi: James10952001: soupafi: James10952001: Well it's their right to refuse service to anyone they choose, an my right to not go there despite not falling into any of the forbidden categories.

I bet they've served a lot more gays and freaks than they realize though.

But you can't openly say " no crippled, n*ggers, or f*ggots"

Why can't you? Is that not covered by the 1st amendment? That's not to say the community shouldn't call him out on it, but it shouldn't be against the law.

The civil rights act of 1964 says you can't.


I'm really amazed at how many people must live sheltered, privileged lives. How do people not know this?
