Protip: Want your racial problems to go away for a while? Fork some cash over to Al Sharpton.


This story — out of hundreds of similar ones these days — struck my fancy because it’s a perfect vindication of the points I raised here. On the private/public accomodation axis, Airbnb is halfway between letting a friend stay overnight and operating a hospitality business. Up till now, it had been a gray area, freedom-of-association-wise — ripe for an SJW power grab. There you have it, folks: who you bring into your own home isn’t your private business anymore.
