    I'm glad Rand Paul said what he said about desegregation because the state had no right to tell other people how to use their own private property. I know it is shitty to use it to showcase your racist views but don't you guys realize that freedom of speech is protected by the right to use your own property as you wish to express your racist views such as only serving 'whites only'. I know it is a sucky thing to do but why do we have the right to deny someone the use of their own property and subsequently the right of free speech. Where do we draw the line between good speech and bad speech in this society.

    Just as anyone could deny anyone entry to their home or land for any reason, someone should be able to deny someone entry to their business for any reason. Private property is private property. Racism is a horrible thing, but people have the right to be racist. As for the Civil Rights Act in the here and now, that's not what's keeping us from devolving into a racist mass that segregates society. Attitudes have changed, if somebody tried to make their store "white only" then they'd inevitably be forced out of business by people refusing to shop there out of disgust.

    That is exactly the sentiment I was trying to cover.

    How'd that whole "whites only" pool work out in NJ? I heard the whole business was recently sold at auction. Let's see how Rand Paul's "honesty" works out for him, shall we?

    One good thing about the results of the 2008 election, they're certainly coming out of the woodwork, aren't they?

    And I strongly encourage them to do so. Be loud! Be Proud! Let everyone know how you feel about desegregation, guys! :clap2::clap2::clap2:

    I believe the line is already drawn. Nothing prevents one from holding a party and inviting who they please for whatever reason they please. But if one opens their business doors to the public (or offer their house up for sale), then it is simply the case that one person's money is as good as any other's.
