They wanted to be the company that cares deeply about Black Lives Matter and would have conversations about race with their customers. Well, I guess they finally have their chance!! :lol:

Yes, normally I would say the crybaby SJWs have once again gone too far. But this is what Starbucks said it wanted with all that "No, you can't just have a cup of coffee, everything has to be political, so lets discuss race" crap it announced a few years ago.

See what I miss by not going to Starbucks' (except to use the toilet of course). :BigGrin3:






Actually I did read about that. Pretty sure it didn't happen in Chicago.

I have never had any problem with going into any restaurant and telling the people "Oh, I am waiting for someone" then waiting 15-20 minutes for whomever to show up, including Starbucks. So I would like to know did they hang out there for 5 minutes, 15, an hour before police were called?

If one simply communicated with the staff, then there would be no opportunity to declare t3h r4c1zmz and all of that.

That was not their interest.

I have no sympathy for them.

Also how they were dressed and how they smelled might be relevant.

No business likes homeless beggar types hanging around, particularly smelly ones.

Whereas respectable types like me raise the tone of the place just by stopping in for a piss. 8)

Reminds me of a favorite line from "Desperado" when Steve Buscemi was telling a bar full of seedy types how Antonio had shot up a bar full of seedy types:

"Now don't get me wrong, these were no class acts like you boys in here. No, these guys were world class turds."

Lots of protest pics at link.


This is not really about SJWs at all.

Starbucks is a “soft” target and the activists smell blood in the water.

My guess is it's in a gentrified area right next to a poor black neighborhood where folks resent the perceived intrusion.
I base this on it being inner city Philly, but non-Italian white folks around.

Whereas the Starbucks' where I pee is near a busy train station.

My guess is that they’ll let things settle down and quietly go back to “order or leave.” But I really hope Starbucks stands by all their “social justice” talk so we can see how it plays out in their stores. If I was a stockholder, I’d be concerned.

It might have been a case not of mere loitering but of scaring away paying customers.

Follow up story:
Starbucks Will Host Anti-Racist Training Session at 8,000 Stores
Reason

... Starbucks announced just moments ago that it would close 8,000 stores on May 29 in order to conduct racial bias training. ...


All fixed now. :)

I think the end game is to treat people like that according to a consistent standard.

The end game is to sell overpriced coffee and pastries.
The anti racism training is paying tribute to buy time.

Prediction: There will be fewer stores near black neighborhoods.

Can't speak for gnome, but I'd say nobody ever really does even with the best of intentions.

Because nobody is perfect, especially when faced with unreasoning hostility.

I haven't investigated. But, I haven't claimed they were in the wrong. I took your question as asking what policy they should have, not what they do or don't do right now.

I am quite sure Starbucks' does not have and never has had a deliberately racist policy.

But it can require deliberate policy to avoid unjustifiably different results by race, even if no racism is intended centrally.
