"If the business you are not operating in public is not for the benefit of the customer ...then you have nothing to offer"...
This is a completely false statement without an addendum that supplies segue to your conclusion...for you may operate the cleanest bestest tasting delight manufacturing eatery in town and still be an asshole...As an entrepreneur, you do what you do for your own supposed satisfaction or benefit and no other reasons...for if your efforts and actions existed for the benefit of others...well, that would make you a Philanthropist.
That you realize that the success of your endeavor depends on your supplying a safe, clean, comfortable, well run establishment offering fresh ingredients and a relaxing environment may be understandable and quite astute of you...that you also attach the need to exclude Niggers, Chinks, WOPs, MIC's, Pollacks and ...Tibetans...all to attract those you wish to cater to may backfire on you in your endeavor to make a profit...the market will certainly let you know.
Who knows, your market may consist of enough like-minded people, who don't want to spend their money in the proverbial melting pot...enough to frequent your establishment and allow you to make a go of it...only time will tell. Meanwhile...you severely limit your market size. Who cares? It's your investment and their are plenty of other choices for the more ethnically or sexually challenged to go....Besides who wants to make friends in your joint anyway.
Your definition of "Capitalist" is also myopic...spend some time, watching Chef Ramsay's "Nightmare Kitchens" on Netflix to get an understanding of true Capitalism and the requirements for success of an endeavor into such...rather than the presently ubiquitous Protectionist Cronyism under whose banner you seek to lump all capitalistic endeavors.
In a true Capitalistic "Free" market place, crooks are quickly ferreted out and aborted from the system. And criminal or civil damage quickly recognized and dealt with under an agreed upon system set up for such perturbations (See Tom Woods writings on the Old West for good example)...this is the role of "government" or authority operating at the behest of "the people"..too oversee equity in such disputes. Not bestow license...of any nature.
The seemingly reasonable (at least to me) exclusions for customers to respect...those that you included in your example, and under the present "fairness paradigm", could also (under the argument you put forward) face legal challenges asking for sub-grouping protections and favorable enforcement against you under the umbrella of Constitutionally protected rights enumerated within the Constitution and Bill of Rights.
These challenges, in others minds might have just as much basis as your present argument has in seeking to allow those disagreeing with your stated exclusions, access to any establishments whilst wearing affront-able clothing or whilst sporting sans-hygenic appearances on some seemingly fair definition of Constitutional Authority of say... freedom of expression...like the Civil Rights Act sought to do for negroes or others wearing darker shades.
In pubic spaces, or on commonwealth property, such arguments would have merit as the underlying law of the land can not and should not abridge these codified rights in such places. In a private establishment, things are different, it is the right of the owner to post such druthers and as this is his personal property, his designs and desires should be respected and legally upheld.
Again you must step back from your personal druthers or sensibilities to see the ridiculousness of your stance as it is you that is deciding what is reasonable for the proprietor to be able to do. There exist so many facets to this jewel that you'll never be able to cover any of them with full equity for all...and given it is the proprietors property and investment...you have no place in trying to do so.
AS to the obtuse Turban'd man example...the passwords won't work...his stepping in and being turned away attests to this...and if you turn him away...you are operating a business for only some of the public...so what's yer point?
That you are a decent individual is commendable. And I hope that if you should ever endeavor to become an entrepreneur, your attitudes and acceptances will bring you all of the successes that your market has to offer...in full recognition of your personal decency.
I hope you put Slim McBigot down at the Swatztika Emporium in his financial place. Good luck to you.
Wha? .....hey....who stole my country?
