There is a difference between something that is legal and something that is accepted. I do not believe the government should enforce antidiscrimination laws against private entities (government entities are another matter entirely). In the past, I know that people in the PDT have reacted to that proposition with what I would say comes close to horror. Yes, it means that a white business owner could refuse to serve black customers. But that doesn’t mean that such behavior should or would be accepted by members of society. For example, I would not do business with a company that refused to serve African –American customers, even though I believe the company would have the right to run its business that way. If a company want to commit social and financial suicide by operating in a bigoted way, that’s up to the owner(s). But at the same time, it’s up to individual persons operating under their own moral codes and senses of right and wrong to choose whether to deal with that business. It’s not the government’s job to make private persons play nice.
