This argument proceeds in two parts. Part I attempts to show that there is something special about discriminatory shopping, such that we ought to understand it prior to deriving an overall theory of employment discrimination. Part II then proceeds to analyze the political morality of discriminatory shopping and offers an account of when and how liberalism morally prohibits such discrimination. Part III concludes that such private discrimination is not always contrary to the egalitarian guarantees of liberalism; while there are some cases in which such practices run counter to liberalism's egalitarian guarantees, not all cases of discriminatory shopping have this quality.
