It may not be obvious to some, but organizations in America already discriminate...

    "...the Boy Scouts discriminates against girls, universities discriminate against those with poor grades, and Hooters discriminates in favor of employing big-breasted women...

    Remember, to discriminate only means 'to choose among options,' we do it everyday, in every decision we make, and especially among the people we choose to be around – it need not be a dirty word to use. It is a fact of human existence."

    I assume the United Negro College Fund is only for Negro colleges/students?

    Prove that you tried and got denied. I promise you that you didn't try because you can join either group.

    You discriminate every time you make a decision.

    There are in fact women in the boy scouts and when you aren't admitted to a college because of grades, that isn't discrimination. That's based upon scholastic performance. If you can't understand the difference, there is no use arguing here. And there are PLENTY of small breasted women working at hooters, so if these are your best examples as to why Racism should be ok, then that's pretty weak.

    I tried to join the elite 100 Black Clergy but they wouldn't let me in because I'm not black and I'm not clergy. Can you imagine that? I think the are profiling.

    I have discriminating friends. We discriminate together every time we choose a pub.:clap2:

    Are Libertarians actually stupid enough to buy these arguments?

    Are you smart enough to come up with an argument that doesn't rest solely on your ability to call people stupid?

    Actually, you could join both if you wish to. And the Boy Scouts had to go to court and have themselves legally classified as a private, religious organization in order to discriminate against gays, children of gays, atheists, and children of atheists.
