Because ethics.

A very rare commodity these days! 


Should the law mandate ethics? Or should the law simply punish aggression?

There are already laws which prohibit discrimination based on race...


There are no laws that prohibit charging white folks double for goods or service, so the rap festival organizers are not doing anything illegal by making white people pay double for tickets.


Do you know this for a fact?  Unless there are no laws that prohibit whites from charging blacks extra than this would be racism, no?

I know you want to talk about price disclosure and I'll talk about that with you later.

No Law should force ethics on any individual or Corporation.

However, there are many Laws on ethics which government employees and elected officials in Public Office must abide by.

I suggested that it would be ethical if the Rap Music Festival organizers (AfroFuture Fest) would disclose the fact that they were gouging white folks on ticket sales.

By doing so, they would improve the public's image of them.

But until they do that, they have a very tarnished image, and that can't be good for business.  Cry

Yes, that would most certainly be racism.

Black people can never be racist - only white people can be racist.   

"...And quite frankly, we black people are tired of having to deal with white people who have an inclination to play the ‘you’re also racist’ card. . .  Black people can never be racist."

https://www.pambazuka.org/governance/black-people-can%E2%80%99t-be-racist

“It’s literally impossible to be racist to a white person.  Racism against white people doesn’t exist. . . Black people can’t be racist."

I didn't know such a thing was legal.  So obviously nigs don't want to have to be with the whites.   But yeah, I believe in freedom of association and free markets.  So if they think they can still do well excluding customers then sure.

So if it is truly possible to double charge whitey at the Negrofest then I hope that it is also legal to completely bar them from attending and hopefully whites will do the same.  I seriously hope this is legal since I have my own list of those who I don't want to serve and the list is long.
I don't want to deal with you either.

They don't apply to some college organizations that are allowed to keep whites out. I think dormitories for "people of color only" have been deemed OK too.

Naturally, the are POC-only dorms.  Who'd want to have a racist as a roommate?

I would, because I don't think it's my job to get offended on behalf of the entire world.

If you treat me with respect, that's how I'll treat you.

A bigot who hates you and treats you with contempt because you have those pointy ears is what you should try for... That could be a human of any race, creed, or nationality. Smiley
