– A South Dakota GOP lawmaker advocates for businesses to “turn away people of color”
– This is a slippery slope for people of color; Black, Brown, Yellow.
A South Dakota lawmaker on Monday said businesses should be able to turn away customers based on race. South Dakota State Rep. Michael Clark, a Hartford Republican, said business owners should have the final say in who they serve.
Clark, the stereotypical Old, Rich, White Republican, was motivated and fueled by the recent Supreme Court gives victory for Colorado baker who refused to make cake for a gay wedding.
Bigot Clark said: “He should have the opportunity to run his business the way he wants. If he wants to turn away people of color, then that’s his choice. The Supreme Court decision is a win for freedom of speech and freedom of religion”
Bigot Clark continued to place is RIGHT Foot in his mouth: “People shouldn’t be able to use their minority status to bully a business.” And then using the GOP value of Free Enterprise, Bigot Clark maintains: “If the community doesn’t support a store or restaurant that bars colored customers it will put them out of business. The vote of the dollar is very strong,”
Let Sarkes interpret Bigot Clark’s statement:
– It is the RIGHT of Business to be able to turn away people of Color if they wish
– If their White customers don’t agree with the Business that turns away people of Color, the customers can go elsewhere
Many Subscribers of Sarkes Corner are Educated and live in Big Cities / Suburbs. As such, you don’t really know the Rural, White, Uneducated, Underemployed White Folk, i.e., the Orange John Deer’s Base. Bigot Clark IS the Golden Harvest’s Base, and articulates the belief of many White Americans.
Hey Bigot Clark, let Sarkes give you a History lesson. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 outlawed discrimination based on Race, Color, Religion, Sex or National Origin. The LGBT community is not covered by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 which is why many Red States have continually and aggressively fight Equal Rights for LGBTQ’s.
If GOP lawmakers in Bright Red States, or the GOP House / Senate, do End Arounds or Repeal the Civil Rights Act of 1964, this could start a Slippery Slope. People of Color, Women, and Dark Foreigners were subject to discrimination that we tend to forget since it has been 54 years since the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964. Many Subscribers of Sarkes Corner are too young to remember when People of Color had to use separate; Rest Rooms, Water Fountains, Entrances to Buildings, had to sit in the back of the Bus, could not eat at White Restaurants, more.
If South Dakota GOP Bigot Lawmaker Michael Clark has his way, life for “Coloreds” would revert to pre-Civil Rights Act of 1964. Many People Say, “Sarkes, why are you so passionate about this story”. Well, Sarkes is Brown himself, Sarkes may be the darkest resident of his Gated Community in Bonita Springs, FL. Will Sarkes, a Brown Man, be required to use a Separate entrance to the Club House, will Sarkes be required to Tee off After the Whites, if Sarkes is barred from the Grill Room, where will he eat his Reuben?
“Many People Say” that the Orange Pulp has empowered many Old White Guys to come out of the Closet and to spew their bigotry. South Dakota Bigot Michael Clark is an example. Sarkes declares that we are now on the top of a Slippery Slope. People of Color BEWARE.
