43. right to discriminate with shared housing

the ads sighted above seemed to be for shared housing "African Americans tend to clash with me"

Can you imagine what it would mean if typical fair housing laws were applied to roomate/housemate situations?

Teenage women sued for choosing not to share their house with Middle Age men

Christians sued for choosing not to share their home with witches

No sex outside of marriage Homophobic Christians sued for not sharing their home with promiscuous gay men


Landlords who feel the need to discriminate should find another business -- but people, I believe, have a right to exercise some control over who shares their space.
