Not to sound rude, but go ahead and report the National Association of Realtors and a couple 100 other affiliate associations to the Justice Department and see if they do anything.

If every private entity is required to offer all their services and products to everyone, then answer these questions. Why do country clubs exist? Why do credit unions exist? Why do mutual insurance companies exist? Why do some health insurance companies only offer certain plans to groups and not individuals? Why do some doctors say they aren’t accepting any new patients? Why does Sam’s Club and Costco not let non-members shop in their stores?
Do you want me to continue?
