I agree Lisa that we don't want to destroy this man or the value that his store may bring to our local economy. However, tolerating his "set in the ways" beliefs and habits does not serve our community or country at large. It's that kind of attitude that can lead to dangerous consequences, i.e., Jim Crow laws.
I hope that this story can inform and that it can bring people together to build effective change. Destroying his business would also hurt the people that work there that need their salaries. Perhaps voicing our displeasure and penalizing him for any laws that he broke is enough. Hatred and vengeance only begats more of the same.
