Sign Reserves Right to Refuse Service to White People

Imitating the leftist practice of rioting didn’t turn out well at the Capitol, but now a countermoonbat may have engaged in another liberal tradition: the hate hoax. However, it’s more likely that this incident in Missouri was just a prank:

Police in Lake St. Louis are investigating a sign that was posted in the drive-thru lane of a Popeyes restaurant near Highway N and Highway 64/40. …

The sign said, “Effective 6-1-21 this restaurant is under new management and will reserve the right to refuse service to white people. We apologize for any inconvenience. Signed, general manager, Mason.”

Thanks to the Civil Rights Act, restaurants cannot refuse service based on race. Presumably this applies even to disfavored Caucasians. On the surface, this seems like a good thing, but the cost was stratospheric; we abandoned the fundamental right of freedom of association. It should be up to restaurant owners and their customers, not the federal government, who eats at a given restaurant.

The manager of the restaurant told News 4 that the restaurant had to close Wednesday because of the backlash over the sign. He said surveillance video confirmed that the person who put up the sign was not an employee.

Even with the restaurant closed, there was traffic in the drive-through lane, as thrill-seekers tried to get a glimpse of the sign for themselves, the way they might line up to catch sight of a two-headed calf.

No business would put up such a sign — not so much because of the misguided and tyrannical Civil Rights Act, but because it would drive away business. But then, not many whites eat at Popeyes anyway.
