not really. i think i align more with the libertarian ideas than other political parties but I'm still not entirely convinced it would be a practical system and there are a lot of silly libertarian stances that I disagree with.

So how is this different than service denial because of dress codes at someplace fancy? or sex discrimination at nightclub entrances?

I've been denied service for both. Sorry, but I'm with Qwerty, I'd rather know and be able to show my support or lack of. The problem is how functional would it be in the real world? Yeh, there would be racist areas booming with racist customers.. I really don't have a problem with that, let them all cluster together, fuck their cousins (hehe), and create subculture pockets throughout the US, while the rest of us rational minded non-bigoted individuals share this country with each other. I'd rather let them deny service and then deny them of government privileges and hit them with penalties than out right say, "NO you can't do that".

Again, I feel like a broken record, but this is a problem that needs to be taken into the hands of the American citizens. Let the peaceful protests and boycotts begin. If businesses like this are successful, we know who to blame. Weed out the fuckery. I only support government intervention for ish like this when it is necessary, if someone would like to enlighten me with a study or well written objective article that explains why I'm wrong, I'm open to it.

You can change what you wear in less than five minutes.

The reason we have the laws in the first place is because the approach you're describing doesn't work.

Was ready to type out a long winded response, but Jansz nailed it.

It didn't work back in the day when the majority of the country was racist, but it's much different today. I'm not gonna sit here and pretend like we still don't have a ways to go, but we have made a lot of social progress, so I question if it would still function the same.

What wrong comes from enforcing the laws as opposed to allowing it to work itself out?

At this point in history, it's not even racism anymore. It's an inflated US vs THEM mentality.

In the 60s it was easy to pit WHITE vs BLK.

Now, it's all about conservative privileged/rich vs. anyone threatening their turf.

Clearly there are more than enough partisan jackasses in all walks of life.
