Anarcho-capitalism "working" or not isn't my concern. It just is. That's the part you guys don't get. A person is born free from any obligations, legal or social. If not, you are a slave.

What would be a much better method would be to institute menu prices based on purely income on a sliding scale system. And if they want to, keep a log of their customers' by race and income.

After all, there are middle and upper income level minorities, and also impoverished white people. It seems to me that middle and upper income level minorities shouldn't be eligible for price discounts. After all, what if Oprah Winfrey were to be in line... should she get a discount just for being black?

What a great way to promote interracial marriage. "Ummm, I'll let my African American spouse pick that up, thanks."

“The Times-Picayune has uncovered a racist restaurant in New Orleans that is charging different amounts for meals based on race. Even more startling, this restaurant is working with Tulane University and Loyola University on this scheme.

Except the Times-Picayune is praising the racism in question. That is because the racism is targeted towards white customers.”

What are you talking about? I don't believe in Social darwinism like you and just watching capitalism's losers starving to death in the streets and saying it's their own fault

It started skyrocketing when we started subsidizing the births.

Racism is not the cause of poverty. The cause of poverty is strictly attitude.

He, like I, was referring to culture, not genetics.

Yes, and the Decennial Census from 1870 through 1940 and other data provided by the Census Bureau bears that out. Johnson's "Great Society" actually created more poverty, instead of ending it.

How long do you think it takes for any group of people to develop a stable, sustainable, viable, and thriving culture?

How much longer do you think it would take for a group of people who experience relentless discrimination in practically every aspect of their lives to develop both a viable and sustainable culture in which a stable family can thrive?

Sometimes we just have to take a moment and think....
The failures of the black community is NOT due to their race or skin colour, it's because of how dysfunctional their ghetto machismo culture that admires men with a player lifestyle.

I encounter and know many successful black people, and what they all have in common is that they speak proper business English, they dress like civilized adults (no black hoodies or baggy jeans), they don't waste their money on stupid expensive sneakers or elaborate heavy hair weaves... and they value a good academic education or having a good skill in the trades. AND they stop dwelling on black slave history and expecting continuous apologies and reparations from whitey.

I do think that there needs to be more black male teachers in the public school systems, but being a teacher is not an appealing profession for black men. I guess that it isn't glamourous enough and doesn't pay enough either.

And there needs to be more black police officers in the black majority communities. Again, all those BLM and taking a knee people need to step up and join the police force and show the white police officers how to do the job better. Stop complaining and really do something about the situation!!!

Anyway, I've never really faced/seen discrimination from white people. Maybe they just talk about it behind closed doors. I think about it sometimes because of stories like this. The mentality it takes to do something like this and then the mentality of the white customers who go along with it really puzzles me. It's so unnatural and condescending IMO. It's so...I don't know...disconnected.

I've always been very individualistic though. I hate collectivism with a deep passion. All people are just weird to me. I believe the feeling is mutual.

I always treat everybody the same. A fancy old white lady or a thug from the hood or a neo-nazi from West Virginia. My first encounter ( if I have to, like at my job ) with somebody is always going to be polite and friendly. It's amazing what people assume of others just because how they look, their appearance.
