??? Race = carrying ??? If i had a carry permit (currently don't), i could lock my pistol in the trunk to go into a "no firearms allowed" venue, but I cannot change my race. Can i be a "protected class" by choice, perhaps simply to annoy some property owner/lessee? Maybe it is because i grew up in southern Mississippi where there is still some segregation (its voluntary nature can be argued) by race, but i just cannot equate a voluntary choice to be different with someone's race or ethnicity. I just don't get that???

I think our rights come with the responsibility to exercise them in conjunction with a respect for the rights, even the conflicting rights, of others. Just because i have a right to speak my mind freely, i shouldn't do so in your home at 3 AM, unless you invited me to do so.
