Can a business deny service because of their assumptions about your character and based on what others said about you?

No, by the Civil Rights Act (1964) no business vending to the public in the USA can deny service, to any member of the public on account of race, gender, point of origin, ethnic group, etc.
But, for other reasons not related...yes....A seller/ business can deny service to whom they want due to the persons misbehavior/ known convictions and prior wrong deeds.
The person so excluded by 1 private businessman, must the sue in small claims to get/ regain access.

discrimination in the workplace includes when an employer, supervisor, or co-worker treats another employee unfairly based on religion, age, ethnicity, gender, disability, skin color, or race. This enables employees to know their rights and employers to avoid any situations involving discrimination.

A private business can deny service for any reason other than you being part of a protected class.

Yes, they can, they can deny service to whoever they please for any reason, including just on a whim, EXCEPT they cannot deny you based on any of the discriminatory reasons, such as race, color, religion, gender and so on. If they just don't like you they can decline to serve you.

Not if it's open to the public, no.
