Whatever happened to “We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone”?
I always blame the lunch counter sit-ins of the 1950s. Once upon a time, property rights mattered. The proprietor could say, "This is my property. I don't want you here. You have to leave now."
Might be a stupid business policy that could really cut into profits, but being a business owner comes with some perks, right?
Well, that all went out the window with MLK. People became heroes for going against the wishes of the owner. Customers had rights. Individuals had rights. Property owners? Not so much.
the right? The Right?
That’s what I don’t understand. A private business should be able to market to any group they want. If enough people don’t like it and take their business elsewhere then that’s the natural consequence. I don’t understand why some women made a big stink and demanded to be able to join men’s clubs. Personally, I wouldn’t want to spend my money where I’m not wanted.
