This is inspired by lozzer's thread on whether private businesses ought to be allowed to engage in racial discrimination in their choice of customers. His view is that it should be illegal to refuse to do business with someone because of their skin colour, and that the government should outlaw it. So, taking this principle to its logical conclusion, shouldn't it be illegal to engage in racial discrimination in other areas, for example sexuality? For example, the government should jail people who only sleep with members of their own ethnic group (or only sleep with people who *aren't* in their ethnic group), since this is clear racism. In fact, the government should make it illegal to discriminate on the grounds of gender too - refusing to sleep with someone of the same sex is about as clear a case of sexual discrimination as you can get. Someone's looks and personality are not inferior just because they happen to be a man or a woman, so surely discriminating on who you share you bed with is unethical and therefore should be banned? We can take this further and extend it to employees. It is clearly racial discrimination for an Asian employee to refuse to interview at and accept a job with the Aryan Brotherhood. Just because they are all whites and promote a racial segregation agenda, does not mean anyone has the right to discriminate on those grounds. Just as it is wrong for a doctor to refuse to provide their professional services to a member of the Nation of Islam or Black Panthers purely on political/racial grounds, so it is wrong for an employee to refuse to provide their professional services to the Aryan Brotherhood purely on political/racial grounds. And we can extend this to providing custom too. If it is illegal and racist for a business open to the public to turn people away based on race, then it must also be illegal and racist for customers to refuse to give custom to a business based on race. So it should be illegal to not shop at a store because the owners are a different race, it should be illegal to not use a doctor because of his race. The government must therefore track people's buying decisions and make sure they are not unduly favouring one race over another, and throw them in jail if they are practising racism in their private buying decisions. Finally, since lozzer says that racism is ok in private, but not in public, we have to close down all public clubs based on race. For example, ethnically based groups in the government (e.g. in the USA, the Congressional Black Caucus). Parties based on the rights of native americans cannot be allowed to exist. In Europe, parties representing ethnic minorities e.g. the Catalans and Basques in Spain, Romanies in E Europe etc, must be outlawed. India must ban all Hindu or Muslim political parties. The Nation of Islam and Black Panthers must be made illegal. Associations based on nationality e.g. the Finnish reindeer-herding society must be banned from letting the public into their premises, and not allowed to serve drinks to people. I am sure you will agree all these steps are necessary to prevent the evils of discrimination and achieve a just society. Good luck finding your same-sex ethnically diverse sex partner and working for the Aryan Brotherhood Oh, and don't forget - the Marxist Revolutionary Bridages have a right to your credit card business too.
