I get the "principle of the thing" argument but wouldn't it have made more sense for this guy and his group to hold their event elsewhere after it was made clear to them they weren't really wanted at Makers Mark?

I mean really, you could have the event somewhere else but still sue Makers Mark for being douchebags.

I would agree that, the establishment having made clear that they did not want the group's patronage due to their race, that group would be well-advised to give their business to somewhere else, and to spread the word about Maker's Mark's racist decision regardless.

However, I also see the point raised in the article - that it is inconceivable that this business was actually taking that stance, and that clearly there was a miscommunication/the manager alone was racist/etc. so that the event could still be held there.

Either way, this is completely unacceptable from a public institution (or any institution, in my opinion, but I'm no lawyer to make that argument).

I go to this place. They have black people there and white people there. I would like the other side of this story. I don't like calls for boycotts unless I know that the violation occurred. Filing a lawsuit is easy. Making accusations is easy.

Was it important for protestors, knowing that Walgreen's lunch counters were segregated, to show up and violate the policy? Yes. It's always important to give the establishment an opportunity to actually try and enforce their bigotry.

 Frank says:

Yes, Ladies and gentleman, even in this agricultural enviroment, We're gonna' play a love song -- This was about 1974 in Harrisburg Pa. at the Farm Show Arena, a week after the Farm show had left town... Frank never admitted to playing there, and I can't say as I blame him. But, I will never forget what a magical night that was.
