Do you think private business have the right to discriminate who they deliver services to based on race, sex, religion, etc? Or is this a violation of the civil rights movement?

Ky. gov criticizes Paul’s ‘radical philosophy’
FRANKFORT, Ky. — Kentucky’s Democratic governor criticized Republican U.S. Senate nominee Rand Paul on Monday for comments he made last week deriding the 1964 Civil Rights Act and described the political newcomer’s libertarian leanings as “fairly radical.”
Paul told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow that he abhors racial discrimination, but suggested the federal government shouldn’t have the power to force restaurants to serve minorities if business owners don’t want to.
“It causes me great concern that a person standing for public office in the commonwealth of Kentucky does not believe that government has a role in making sure that every person in this country, regardless of race, color, creed, religion or whatever, has the same equal opportunity to eat at the lunch counter in a department store,” Gov. Steve Beshear said.
“This was settled 50 years ago. It’s very disturbing that … a person running for public office and has the nomination of a major political party in our state has that kind of philosophy.”
