Perhaps, instead of kicking back and forth the believed actions of diferently motivated individuals in a limited government, we could instead debate the causes and solutions to racism.
Excellent point Quas, the only true solution I can think of is time.
I dont think Mr. Paul is hoping that racists run in and get to create a white paridise. To be honest I don't think he thinks anyone would ever take advantage of the lack of civil rights laws and abuse the minorities.
However, I can see just that happening. I got lucky, my father is black (so much in fact, the old joke about only seeing him at night if he smiled would be accurate) my mother is a mixed Irish woman, I look like a white man. Being that I look white I have been privy to comments and actions that would never have been done in front of someone who looks black.
I am sad to say that racism is still alive today.
Maybe someday the ADA and civil rights laws will be silly and unnecessary, but that someday has not come to pass yet.
Here is to hoping that I get to see that day. Untill then lets leave the current laws alone and concentrate on the importants stuff, like runnaway wars and good ol boy corruption.
One other thing....
don't get sucked into these guys baiting.
They are quick (2-3 mins) to say because they make comments about my hygine and DNA that they have responsed to my base question.
But meanwhile they convinently leave the postion held by 'TheAmericanNomad ' found here
unresponded to at all, as perfectly consistant with Civil Libertarian values lo these many hours.
