    Someone in SF will fare a lot better making $15 an hour than they will $7.25 an hour though.

    Actually you made a general statement and then added a qualifier to it. By this same logic, Porsches and Ferraris are not desirable cars, especially for low skilled workers.

    This is my favorite part. You ask him if having min wage statues actually makes people poorer and fingerbang says IDK but I know a lot of businesses

    Sure, OK. How often do you think that happens. I think there are far more racists who say or do racist things, or treat others differently, than there are racists who don't, even if they don't do it all the time. And you only seem to want to talk about the latter.
    I only want to discuss it because thatís the type of racism as a society that we can actually manage or attempt to deter through litigation. And itís my point exactly, typically people who are racist, make their feelings known, one way or the other. Those people are usually not successful, especially once their feeling are known.

    For instance, you used Donald Sterling as an example. Once he made his racism known or once it became well known, he lost his franchise and success. Was he racist before it became known? Probably but as far as we know, it didnít interfere with anyoneís rights.

    It seems you are saying if someone is racist for half the time, they are not racist because they are not racist 100% of the time and then using an example of a religious person when the religious example actually refutes your point.

    Would you say someone is not a christian if they go to church every other sunday instead of every sunday? If they follow some rules of the bible and call themselves a christian but not others? most would consider them a christian.

    And again, we are using examples of people who most certainly did make their racist beliefs known, and you are still arguing that those people aren't racists...
    If people follow some Christian beliefs and not others, I would not consider them to be Christian. Iíd say their beliefs are being tested at best. While obviously showing respect or in the very least dignity to a black person is not far fetched, to a racist, it goes against their beliefs. Itís in line with abortion or murder. Would you consider someone who commits murder a good Christian?

    Not if the cost of living rises and minimum wage jobs are lost to concur with that $15 an hr which is likely.

    Again, I'm not the one making up my own stupid *** definition of racism and pretending like it's straight from Merriam-Webster. No idea why you'd think I feel cool about getting in a mindless argument with someone making the most laughably ridiculous statements on racism imaginable.

    If we just didnít pay them anything there would so much investment and trickling- so much trickling that I donít think anyone would be poor. But whatís poor? Do people need electricity? I think robots

    So they would be worse off with 15 instead of 7?
