I still have a Pat Buchanan yard sign from his Presidential bid.

It may come out of retirement.

Does anyone really believe if Civil Rights laws were repealed we'd go back to black and white drinking fountains? Blacks riding in the back of the bus? Separate entrances areas for blacks?

He’s right and it has nothing to do with racism.

If a business doesn’t want to serve someone because of their race, another business will open that will serve exclusively that race. And likely a 3rd business will open that serves all who enter and put both racists out of business.

Unfortunately, this would raise claims that it would “encourage racial discrimination” ...
see for instance,
Reitman v. Mulkey 387 US 369 (1967) where the USSCt upheld the California state Supreme Court’s overturning of a voter referendum repealing the California legislature’s Rumford Fair Housing Law (Yes, another 5-4 vote but it is there).

Not saying it shouldn’t or can’t be done.
Only saying anyone trying this needs to be well prepared (legally) to deal with just how it may be done (and how it may best be defended against challenge).

Christians are more concerned about wholesale discrimination from government than piecemeal discrimination from private parties

It is the only thing they know how to do. They are not productive or constructive. They have no other skills that would allow them to earn a living.

The section ruling on private industry was flatly unconstitutional. The Act had these elements added by Emmanuel Celler (D - N.Y.) after hearings during the negotiation. Republicans, though they were widely in support of the Act should have demanded this be taken out. It was blatantly an expansion of government illegaly into the private sphere, and short-sighted people that they were, they never imagined how the libs would abuse it.

They were afraid of being labeled racist the way Goldwater was and he was probably the most non racist among them. The man was practicing affirmative action in his own offices before anyone ever suggested it.

“Religious freedom,” said Daniel Mach of the ACLU to the Times, is “not a blank check to … impose our faith on our neighbors.”

Tolerance for me and not for thee is the secular leftist's creed.

I agree. Not only are they infringes on personal liberty but they are arbitrarily enforced. “Affirmative action” and “diversity” = racism against whites and sexism against males.

So get rid of the whole lot . . . throw out birthright citizenship too.

Bravo. I’ve been saying this for years. The Fed have proven themselves incapable of objectively enforcing the “civil rights laws’. They are purely an arm of the Democrat Party. The first to go, has to be the sexual harassment laws, and then the civil rights laws. Return this to the States and the People. The Feds ought to have little tonothing to do with individual Americans and getting involved with all this crap has proven to be a disaster once Jim Crow was overthrown.

You can’t legislate away rudeness and ignorance.

And if it were ONLY official race and gender blindness. Now it’s lamented by every lofty liberal that there aren’t as many women doing engineering as there are men.

One doesn’t need a nanny for everything.

NO, but liberals and Blacks certainly do. They're trapped in the 1950s and early 1960s segregation mindset — one they cherish and nourish every day.

You’re a strange person. You honestly believe that the people you work with, live with, and pass by on a daily basis are troglodytes barely kept in check by a few 50-year-old federal laws?

You think that if we repeal an archaic act of congress that does little but keep the ghosts of old hatred alive that all of society will do a moral 180-degree turn and descend into barbarism?

You think that with a radically different demographic makeup in this nation, several generations of moral change, 50 years of cultural change, the replacement of leaders of industry, state, academia and media that have taken place since then, that the only thing keeping this country from looking like 1950’s America is the Civil Rights Act?

Of course Pat is correct in pointing out that these laws are no longer necessary and were in fact, never quite constitutionally legal ... that is they were specifically designed to unconstitutionally favor one group of citizens over others as a remedy for grievances already specifically addressed by constitutional amendments and other laws.

For example, our British cousins are at least a bit more forthright in calling their version of Affirmative Action what it really is, "Positive Discrimination."

Instead of enforcing existing laws, which certainly could have been done to address Negro grievances in the first place, law after law was piled on top of them. In a strange way, this is an echo of "Gun Laws," which in many cases were originally enacted to keep Negroes from their Constitutional right to keep and bear arms.

However, the Negro vote, 12% of our population, is now concentrated in such a way as to dominate national elections and the representative bodies of the most populated states and is a key Democrat constituency, without which they would pass from national power. Thus, in a practical sense, we are stuck with Political Correctness and Affirmative Action.

Remember the Negroes were an important Republican constituency in earlier non-urban times. That is, until the last freed slaves and then their immediate offspring, passed from the scene.

Pat is right.

Sure we needed a change, now we HAVE change.

The system is still stuck in “fix things” mode. Things are fixed now.

Beyond fixed. Now we need to eliminate the structural discrimination we have built.

Now.

While I agree with Pat in the ideal, reality says there is zero chance of that happening or anyone in GOP even calling for it. Might as well not fantasize.

I take a different approach:

I graduated high school Class of 2008. In all four of my years in high school black males who I didn't even know would come up and put their arms around me, hug me, rub on me, and etc. and I could always count on the liberal faculty to do absolutely nothing about it.

Meaning all those civil rights laws never applied to me when I needed them so why should I give a sh*t about them?

I agree 100%. I can only imagine the pressure she's under and, possible blackmail she's being threatened with.

Remember Judge Roberts?

Libs play dirty and will do anything they have to to get what they want including threats, blackmail, extortion, bribes, etc.

I think many here dismiss the significance to her personally of how an economic embargo would hurt her state.

Its easy to do that, make believe you are in others shoes.
