Kent landlord bans 'coloured' people from renting properties 'because of the curry smell'

    I see comments like "it's my property I can decide who to rent to" receive many upvotes on the web.

    If this logic stands, all laws on discrimination would be practically useless: "My company I can decide who to employ or fire", "My restaurant I can decide who to serve or who to kick out", "My school I can decide who to admit"...etc.

    The interwebs would be dead if it were not for people who talked about shit instead of doing it.

    The internets would also be pretty dull without all the trolls, raising up the traffic levels.

    Nothing to do with trolls. (I know what you're trying to do)

    Conversation would die if people did shit ...

    IMO, they are less likely to complain about stuff that is perfectly normal here; noise, maintenance, etc.

    The westerners are more likely to abandon, especially the singleton. They are more likely to complain about trivial shit and trawl forums until they find people who support them, justifying their anger, they are more likely to risk my deposit by not paying the last two months rent...

    The singleton, Mr. O'Shea, is more likely to party.

    Is that discrimination? Yes, but I feel it's completely valid and based in reality...I'm sure statistics would back me up.
    I am sure statistics would not.
    The number of local who likes a good old scandal / drama / complain about their neighbors etc etc.
