How do you ever know if "hate" is involved? Is it only when someone explicitly states "I hate..."? Does it always involve burning crosses and hooded robes? Regardless of the photographer's motivation, the result was a particular action WHICH I SINCERELY DEFEND. I'm just saying that I believe refusal of service for that reason will not be tolerated by the market in the future.
Remember, there were plenty of folks who claimed they had no hatred for black people, but just felt segregation (even slavery) was good for everyone. I thought THOSE folks were in denial and they probably DID have an element of hate in them despite what they said. Your post points out that I am in no position to make that assumption. Perhaps, but we all call it like we see it. I bet you do too.
No-one but Paul!
