>>>That's an interesting point. Since the venue is not public, can the venue owner ban blacks and jews from entering the "private venue"?
I called up a friend, he's a lawyer. he said,
the word venue is vague in this context so...
if you rented a place, and it's a peaceful gathering to speak, and people are by private invite only ( friends and family with no $$$ )
you can block the door to all or anyone, it's your place, your rules. think of weddings, whom you invite is private. you can not discriminate against the staff that works the location.
if you are selling tickets to a show, then everyone is welcome
