If a black person was ill in a segregated township and there was no 'black' hospital, unless there was a black doctor, that person would have to hope that a white doctor would deign to treat them in their own home - including surgery. Unless there was a 'black' store (which were frequently burned down by whites), blacks went unserved in those townships unless they could get friendly whites to pick up what they needed or if they worked for whites, added their own purchases to those of their employer's and repaid the difference, because the stores would allow black employees of whites to shop. They would even take goods like flour and yard goods (fabric) in exchange for work.

    Jim Crow laws didn't care if they starved someone but most blacks in the south grew their own vegetables, kept chickens and hunted, so they wouldn't starve, but it was in spite of those laws which were intended to drive them out.

    It's not a huge leap to allow one individual to flout the public accommodation laws on the basis of religion and have that become the precedent to justify ideological refusals to accommodate. At that point, public accommodation laws become impotent and people are free to be as unkind and xenophobic as they wish to be. Religious belief in the law at the state level has no more weight than ideology, because there really is no difference. The Constitution only protects the right to hold any religion that you choose free from federal interference.
    Jim Crow laws were never intended to drive blacks out of the area.

    They were intended to oppress the blacks economically and socially to undo the freedoms the Republicans had given them at the end of the Civil War.

    Rodents "#Resist" today like they did with their Ku Klux Klan of yore. Their targets are different, but one of their goals is still the oppression of the blacks.
    Freedom Requires Obstinance.

    We the People DID NOT vote in a majority Rodent Congress, they stole it via election fraud.

    The goals are, and it's the goals that count.

    And, yes, the top Rodents love the idea.

    They did good.

    And the electoral college will never be repealed by Constitutional Amendment.
