I'm not quite sure what Tyler thinks he's showing with this post
. I think he thinks it shows that government isn't the only source of racism. Duh. To me it affirms that government doesn't really matter. If people are racist, having Jim Crow laws is largely redundant. If people are racist, having anti-discrimination laws is useless. If people are not racist, anti-discrimination laws are unnecessary. If people are not racist, Jim Crow laws only matter marginally. It's individuals that matter, not government.
