Personally I thing if someone is going to pay you to work for them then they should be able to discriminate against anything they see fit.

If you are a racist and want to run a business that has employees then you should not be forced to hire someone that is a race that you hate or dislike simply because they showed up to the interview and are qualified.

And at the end of the day the owner is still the boss and still has a tremendous amount of power over his employees, so making it illegal to discriminate is basically just a tax on discrimination, every so often you might lose money because of it (but it is not going to help discriminated people get better jobs).
