But what about the Asians?

Gerry Kahrmann, Vancouver Sun

So Abraham Berhe and Emebet Belay and wanted to open a beauty salon. Which they did. They poured $70,000 of money and a lot of labor into a rented space. Only to allegedly be told by their landlord that they could not cut white men’s hair. Or advertise in the window.

Like anybody wants a lease with those provisions? The judge ruled against the landlord.

Discriminating against clients on the basis of race is just plain stupid, although the consequences would undoubtedly be more severe for Berhe and Belay than if white guys stuck to the hair of their own kind.  Because it wouldn’t just be about market forces–it would be about bringing down all of the institutional power upon your head.
