Alleged racism transforms Starbucks into “mini sanctuary city” overnight

David MenziesMission Specialist


After two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks for refusing to leave the store when asked, CEO Kevin Johnson issued an edict that all stores will be closed for a day in May so employees can receive sensitivity training.

We don’t know the full story yet but we do know they were denied access to the washroom due to Starbucks policy that washrooms are reserved for paying customers only.

Up to that point, they were not paying customers and were allegedly asked to leave. They didn’t leave, police were called and they were charged with trespassing.

Cue the outrage.

The CEO jumped to action convinced this was a genuine crisis. Overnight, Starbucks devolved from a cool and comfy cafe to a chain of miniature sanctuary cities.

The men arrested weren’t homeless but we just saw a corporation’s knee-jerk reaction to the mere suggestion that an employee might have demonstrated “racism” by calling the cops.

We live in a time when optics, as opposed to common sense, moves the dial on so-called social justice issues like that evil “implicit bias.”

Starbucks has proven that you can’t please the SJWs by caving into them. The company has always been far left. It didn’t get them a pass with SJWs.

Now that Starbucks has caved to the Social Justice Morons (SJM), they have shown their weakness by bending the knee to the moron mob.

Now the SJMs will descend on Starbucks like a pack of rabid jackals.

Well, it is Starbucks’ own fault for being spineless wimps.

Starbucks was at one time the Seattle based wonder child that went on to sweep the nation, and obviously became a great investment… “Good Luck” going forward after this latest stupid, stupid catering to political correctness…

‘Social Justice’: translation: government-certified anti-white racism and anti-male sexism… good report, Menz. You do have to wonder, though: How could so many people be conned into accepting this blatant insanity?

Nore anti-white hate speech by the leftist fascists, eh? Whites wouldn’t get the traction those men got if they were in their position. This is what is called black privilege. Amd wju cpi;dm

Everybody should have known better. Any eatery that allows people to just come in and flop without buying anything is asking for a drop in sales. The two black men couldn’t buy a coffee at least? I’ve been in places like MacDonald’s or Tim Horton’s just often enough to see non-paying customers taking up seats that were meant for patrons or panhandling right inside the restaurants. It makes you want to leave and never come back.
