#BoycottStarbucks

The bad coffee chain learns that no amount of virtue-signaling is sufficient to inoculate one from the SJWs:
Way, way back in the deepest mists of history, circa March 2015, the Starbucks Corporation rolled out an initiative they called "Race Together." Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, concerned about the racial divide in America, instructed baristas to scribble the thought-provoking phrase "Race Together" on customers' cups as a way to "foster discussion." Because that's exactly what you want when you're waiting in line for an overpriced cup of coffee that tastes like it was filtered through a hobo's liver. You want a lecture about what a racist you are.

Starbucks even gave us all some homework to do, in the form of an insert in USA Today.

I hope this fiasco proves instructive to Howard Schultz and everybody else at Starbucks. No matter how liberal you are, no matter how hard you work to establish and maintain your #woke credentials, all it takes is one slip-up. Just one viral video, taken on one of the cameras that we all carry now, and the angry mob will descend on you. Nothing you do or say will appease them. No apology will be sufficient. You can't grovel low enough.
They won't learn, of course. They never do. They'll just grovel harder in the hopes that they get devoured last.

And notice how Treacher is a brilliant example of the haplessness of the conservative, always seeking the instruction of the enemy rather than its defeat.

The account I read said that the two black men refused to follow store policy and then gave the police trouble when they got there. The black chief of police said his men were very polite and respectful and did nothing wrong. The two black men gave the police a lot of lip. The police never seem to beat the right people.

Blacks are the racist ones. They think they can do as they please in a "white" place because they are "protected". (much like messing with a made-man in the old days)

Blogger Resident Moron™ April 17, 2018 4:45 AM  

The tone-deaf idiocy of that insert. The “some of my best friends ate black!” was the epitome of racist self defense over 40 years ago (from the left’s point of view). I guess that’s the benefit of memory holing every inconvenience. Never even knowing you’re repeating ancient errors.

They were asked to buy something or leave multiple times by the employees, whom the dindus then cussed. When the police arrived, they asked the dindus to leave multiple times, but the dindu and only became more disrespectful and belligerent.
It's common knowledge that you have to buy something to sit in a place. It doesn't matter who did otherwise and got away with it. It's a general rule, and one these dindus refused to follow.
Of course, there's also the possibility of the dindus scooping up unattended laptops and rushing out the door.

The dindu logic is such that, just because some white person got away with not buying something at one point, that the rule no longer applies. That's nonsense. They brought the arrest on themselves.

BUT- it's great watching Starbucks squirm. I hope the full wrath of dindu fury falls on them, and they have to pay out Gawker levels of restitution.

Many years ago, I once had business with their top brass. Nothing earth shattering, but I got to see their culture and they enforced the narrative like rabid dogs. Literally, foaming-at-the-mouth, bring-up-divisive-issues-all-the-time crazy.

Starbucks is in a lot of Target stores, more so now that the B&N gravy train appears to be running out of steam. Their coffee isn’t good, everything is overpriced, and it’s 2018 yet they still decorate like it’s the late 90s and they are trying to appeal to the emo-“intellectual” crowd of dejected college kids with problem glasses and useless art history degrees.

But hey, they have gluten free and vegan food now, so that will save them.

That's pretty much the version I got too. The employee kept asking the Africans to at least buy some coffee, the Africans kept saying they were waiting for a friend to show up (yeah, right) then they started to tell them to leave. The Africans of course, ignored them. The cops got called and when they got there, various other patrons started filming - in the hopes things would get violent for a good YouTube/World Star Hip Hop video. If I walk into a fast food joint and there are a few dindus hanging around (not eating or drinking and some TNB) I'd turn around and leave. I wouldn't be surprised the typical cat ladies and soyboys that are into fivebucks were also being scared away.

In my experience, the last few years have highlighted that malls are a post-American phenomena. Americans hardly go there anymore, because they've become blights of immigrants (especially MENAs and Indians) and dindus. The idea of cute little white middle schoolers hanging out at the mall seems nostalgic. They don't do that anymore unless they're really trashy and have a future as the ho of some mystery meat alligator feeder.

I keep holding out hope.

I live in the Pacific Northwest where Starbucks began. The quality of the product has deteriorated considerably since their early days, and of course the politics have gotten worse.

This is exactly the response the head of Starf*cks should have given the press, rather brilliant:

"No matter how liberal you are, no matter how hard you work to establish and maintain your #woke credentials, all it takes is one slip-up. Just one viral video, taken on one of the cameras that we all carry now, and the angry mob will descend on you. Nothing you do or say will appease them. No apology will be sufficient. You can't grovel low enough."

That said, the two men who were waiting at the Starf*cks in question did not do anything, they were waiting for a friend and hadn't ordered. Still, if any two men just came to a McDonald's or Subway or Starf*cks and just sat down and didn't order anything, it might seem odd. If you go in a place that serves food or drink you're expected to order something, a restaurant or Starf*cks is meant to be for customers. Not random people waiting for a friend. If they'd ordered (even just one of the two men) a latte, a bottle of water or something, nothing would have happened.

"On the rare occasions I go to Starbucks I get a chai."

We don't live in Russia dude. No need to use Russian words when there's a perfectly acceptable and well-understood word
for the exact same idea -- TEA.

"A company spokesperson said Starbucks does not have a broad policy prohibiting people from using restrooms or sitting inside for free..."

Excellent. Anyone living near (within a few miles or so) of those homeless camps should run off a hundred flyer sheets printing that Starbucks corporate policy permits people to stay inside as long as they want, and use the restrooms, all for free. Then hand the flyers to a couple of homeless people at the camp and pay each of them ten bucks to distribute the flyers to everyone in the homeless camp.

Let Starbucks enjoy becoming the place for homeless people to squat. *grin*

Starbucks HQ is less than 1/2 mile from a particularly large and determined Heroin Hill encampment.

I don't know, Amy...

Gluten food and vegan free food sounds petty good (Hmmm:*BACON*)! ;-)

I saw a video a few weeks back that went on singing the praises of Japan as an example of a highly functioning, polite, ordered, clean, mannerly society. Mmm hmmm. I’m sure it is.

Certainly it has nothing to do with them being AN ETHNICALLY HOMOGENEOUS AND LARGELY PHILOSOPHICALLY AND CULTURALLY COHERENT people living on an island and practicing de facto isolationism.

No! Certainly not that.surely they do t have these problems in their cafes and restaurants.

Nice how Schultz threw his entire workforce under the bus, as a result of a scam. I never realized Starbucks was a hotbed of racism. LOL I'm also wondering if their black employees will be required to attend this brainwashing session?

And that's why I've stopped going to Starbucks.
