    if true, sounds like people would be able to charge them with discrimination

    per the link

    "The Civil Rights Act of 1964 Title II states: "All persons shall be entitled to the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, and privileges, advantages, and accommodations of any place of public accommodation, as defined in this section, without discrimination or segregation on the ground of race, colour, religion, or national origin.""

    Thievery, discrimination, price gouging, and definitely racism. They should be sued blind and jailed. Oh and double their fines, jail time, etc.

    I am actually shocked that no leftist dove into this to 'splain to us ignorant conservatives how discrimination and outright racism is a . . . good . . . thing when leftists do it.

    Does 'non-people of color' mean albino animals? Oh maybe it's albino birds.

    Early bird tickets for "POC" were $10 and $20 for "Non-POC".

    I have serious doubts that this is latest US national and world news from mainstream media.

    A private festival? So they can charge what they like to whom they like.
    They can make it explicitly no whites allowed. It's their business.

    Does that hold true for all private businesses?

    Yes. I am a pragmatist here, and am not on principle against temporary (say, 20 years) laws to crack bad customs, like racial discrimination
    against Blacks, which was deeply engrained in the South anyway.
    But those laws should have a time limit. I think of them like laws prohibiting newspapers being published by in the country by sympathyzers with the enemy in wartime. Maybe necessary in wartime, but when the war is won, get the government out of deciding what we can read and write.

    I disagree. While i agree no government agency should be allowed to discriminate.
    I believe private parties should be able to .
    It's a matter of individual freedom.

    I see your point and generally agree. But what they did is against the laws established over the past several decades by the Democrat party which they've imposed on the nation and to the punishment of many. Which is why it would be an exquisite act of equitable justice to turn it on them.

    If you sourced this, you would have read that:
    - the black rappers didn't want this
    - and subsequently this was overturned asap.





    So what do we say about this? When it's not happening anymore....

    In response to the criticism of the prices, AfroFuture announced it would change all tickets to $20 general admission.



    You fail. This was already overturned on monday.

    You still posted this at a time it all was resolved. Your post doesn't contain a source, you left it out,... all in order to cause this fake outrage that already was resolved. So it remains this fake white supremacist outrage theme,... capisce?

    Just like redlining / financial discrimination. Aryans and Jews did this to black people for decades on end after the end of Jim Crow laws. Heck, even the US government paid over a billion in damages for deliberately bankrupting black farmers. The stuff where reparations are out of the question.

    Pff. The crime is not compensated in the full. Just a couple of years from a policy that went on for decades. And nobody at all has been put behind bars. Not 1 got charged with it.

    Why not. Aryan and Jewish CEO's were given their bonuses when their policies were criminal and racist. Some banks payed well over 300 million in damages. And so you tell me, why investors/stockholders are missing out on that massive amount of money, and the people who caused that get a pet on their back?

    It's just like Acosta being fired for giving that child rapist of an Epstein a little slap on the wrist. If Epstein wasn't rich white and Jewish, but poor and black,... he might have had his life sentence. Racial discrimination is simply institutionalized in the US. I can prove that. No worries.

    If you can prove an individual commited a crime.. fine.. charging people who weren't e even alive at the time is evil. As evil as slavery was.

    I am talking about banks having a policy of racial discrimination after the Jim Crow laws got banned. That is far beyond slavery, buddy. The CEO's are responsible. The banks payed the massive fines. What on earth are you talking about that there is no proving this?
