The defendant operated a barbecue diner where they did not allow Blacks, despite congressional law. The diner bought meat from outside the state, and admitted that some guest were from outside the state.
Whether Title II, as applied to a restaurant annually receiving about $70,000 worth of food which has moved in commerce, is a valid exercise of the power of Congress.
Just using food that moved in interstate commerce is sufficient for Congress to exercise its power.
