This has nothing to do with your "country" signing off on racism. As for the south, regarding lunch counters, it was state govts that made those rules when there were private businesses who wanted to integrate. You read too much PC history.
You have a strong opinion of this issue. I'm not saying your wrong or you are FOS. It's a legitimate opinion. But, so is mine.
It's a difficult issue. There is just no solution that doesn't end up with someone having their rights curtailed.
