Starbucks Hit by ‘Cascade of Negativity’ After Ordering Staff to Talk Racism with Customers

Jake Wallis Simons, Daily Mail, March 18, 2015

Twitter has ruthlessly mocked Starbucks campaign for the company’s new anti-racism campaign in which baristas talk to customers about race issues while serving their coffee.

One user tweeted, ‘I don’t have time to explain 400 years of oppression to you & still make my train’, while another pointed out, ‘y’all realize there are no coloured hands in the press photos right’.

A third speculated, ‘maybe Starbucks actually wanted to get people of all races & ethnicities to join hands and make fun’.

Corey duBrowa, the company’s Senior Vice President of Global Communications, was forced to delete his Twitter account, before re-activating it the next day.

‘Last night I felt personally attacked in a cascade of negativity,’ he said in a post on Medium. ‘I got overwhelmed by the volume and tenor of the discussion, and I reacted’.

Staff at the 4,700 cafés across America now have the option to write ‘RaceTogether’ on cardboard cups, which is the slogan of a Starbucks anti-racism campaign.

It was hoped that customers who encounter the slogan on their coffee cup would be inspired to discuss the deeper issues affecting America, in an attempt to ‘create a more empathetic and inclusive society–one conversation at a time’.

But many customers found the campaign ‘patronizing’.

‘#RaceTogether is what happens when a 1%-er without any actual anti-racist education or training has a mid-life “white man’s burden” crisis,’ one user tweeted.

Another took a sarcastic approach, tweeting a picture of a white barista, with the message: ‘Here’s your macchiato! Let’s discuss the historic disenfranchisement of your people that has allowed me to prosper.’

The campaign was the brainchild of Howard Schultz, 61, the company’s boss, who has a track record of speaking out about contentious topics, from gay marriage to gun control.

His decision came in response to the escalating racial tension that emerged when grand juries failed to indict white police officers involved in the killings of Michael Brown, 18, in Ferguson, Missouri, and Eric Garner, 43, in Staten Island, New York.

Last year, Schultz travelled to Starbucks branches in the cities most affected by racial tension, including Los Angeles, St Louis, Chicago, New York, Oakland and Seattle.

Mr Schulz met about 2,000 Starbucks staff on the tour, and made contact with the rest of his 200,000 employees–40 per cent of whom are from ethnic minority backgrounds–via a video address.

‘It’s an emotional issue,’ he said. ‘But it is so vitally important to the country.’

Last week, the company ran full-page advertisements in the New York Times and USA Today, highlighting race tensions in the country.

The page was black, with the words ‘shall we overcome?’ in the centre, and the company logo at the bottom.

The campaign will continue on Friday, when every copy of USA Today will carry an insert about racism, which will also be stocked at branches of Starbucks.

Schultz kicked off the campaign last December with a letter that appeared in TIME magazine.

‘Last week, one thing became clear: we cannot continue to come to work every day aware of the difficult and painful experiences facing our nation, and not acknowledge them, together, as a company,’ he wrote.

‘Indeed, despite the raw emotion around the events and their underlying racial issues, we at Starbucks should be willing to talk about them.’

Schultz has a track record of using his public profile to highlight issues close to his heart.

In 2013, he wrote an open letter requesting customers to leave their guns at home when they visited his stores, even in states where they can be carried legally.

‘We believe guns and weapons should not be part of the Starbucks experience,’ he said.

He also spearheaded a petition to end federal shutdown in the same year, and launched a scheme to boost job creation in the U.S. by selling bracelets in its cafés in 2011.

Starbucks is also intending to employ 10,000 former members of the armed forces and their partners over five years.

It is not known whether Starbucks is considering pulling the RaceTogether campaign.

Traditionally, those who oppose Schultz’ views get short shrift: in 2013, when an investor said that the company’s open support for gay marriage was harming sales, Schultz responded by suggesting that he sell his shares.

  • He also spearheaded a petition to end federal shutdown in the same year

    That was a campaign led by Washington DC area Starbucks locations, and the reason for that was not politics or ideology, but the bottom lines of those Starbucks locations. Because a few Federal employees were temporarily laid off, and the sequester also meant that some Federal employees had slight pay reductions, this meant that the first thing they couldn’t do was pay $7 for cups of coffee.

    • Oil Can Harry

      If billionaire Schultz believes in social justice so much why doesn’t he pay his baristas more than $9 an hour?

      • cherrie greenbaum123

        To be fair, how much talent does it take to pull coffees?

  • USofAntiWhite

    Another dishonest article. It pretends that the only discussion about racism possible is the “non-Whites would be on the moons of Jupiter singing kumbaya in their 30th century technology spacecrafts if not for White racism and intellectual theft of our ideas” lie. Whether Starchumps realizes or not, all of this is really a reaction to Black racism and violence but everyone is pretending it is another opportunity for Blacks to express their victimhood both in the past and present as an explanation… an excuse for everything. And the African racists run with the lie in spades.

    • Rocco

      Post of the month right there. Very well put sir.

      I do want to mention though, that I think saying blacks exploit these lies or run with them, gives your average city dwelling black more credit than they might actually deserve. That might suggest that they have a plan or vision toward a goal which they could mask with lies…whereas I think its more accurate to assume that when operating on base emotional responses and extremely low IQ, they actually truly believe the lies they are told. I think social Marxists and the left in general know this and exploit it.

      • H. Mueller

        “social Marxists and the left in general know this and exploit it.”– Absolutely, they are what is known as “useful idiots”. Mr. Lenin exploited his useful idiots, when he was done with them, they got a nice bullet in the brain stem, or a long vacation at a gulag.

    Considering that Starbucks sells a product that in its natural state is black and bitter – what better product to highlight the way blacks feel about America?

  • Truthseeker

    The reaction to this campaign on Twitter was exactly what would happen if a guy tried to reason with an angry mob. They’d abandon all perspective and start the frenzy against the guy who symbolizes their perceived grievance. They don’t want a dialogue leading toward mutual goodwill, they want to release their anger over a sense of inferiority, and they want to take the position of superiority from those who currently occupy it.

    • listenupbub

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. Blacks are, indeed, an angry mob.

      This highlights the failure of multiculturalism: the most sincere effort to “get along” with blacks fails.

      I imagine the only way to get along with blacks is to a) let blacks mate with us, as they have always secretly wanted, and b) give them unlimited reparations payments.

      Basically, to show blacks that we are dying off.

      We’ll see if the cultural marxists are willing to go that far.

    • kikz2

      and most likely physically harm them in the process.

    I can’t wait to go to Starbucks now. To be able to tell a twenty-something liberal trapped behind a counter getting paid to listen to what I really think is a dream come true.

    • Robert Smith

      It’s as good as finding money.

    • TruthBeTold

      Many years ago, I worked as a cashier. Until you experience it you will never know what it’s like to come face to face with the worst of humanity.

      A cashier is the lowest of the low. No power or authority at all. If a customer THINKS you’re rude and talks to the boss, you can be fired on the spot.

      Please keep in mind these people likely don’t want ANYTHING to do with this issue. They are being forced by management to do something they don’t want to do and smile and be pleasant lest they lose their job.

      The cashier is not the problem. Please don’t make them the punching bag.

      The problem is the higher ups.

      So please don’t take your anger out on a helpless, powerless peon.

      Direct your anger at the idiots at the top who think this is a good idea.

      • Robert Smith

        RamZPaul gives a nice model for conduct over at the DailyKenn. He appears a bit sleepy, maybe he hasn’t had his coffee yet.

      • Who Me?

        Normally I’d agree with you, but if the cashiers start complaining in droves about catching abuse from sleepy, grumpy customers who don’t want to talk politics that early in the morning (or are too sleepy to hide their real feelings about it), I think top management might re-think their position on this.
        Funny thing; when I worked with the general public we were told not to discuss controversial subjects like politics and religion, and if the customer brought it up, we were to just nod and smile and hurry away or change the subject to something like the weather.

        • 1069rhythm

          No, abuse would only “prove the pervasiveness of racism in America” or something like that.

      • They have the right to say “No.” I love the word “no”, and in fact it is quite habit-forming. I once refused to work on ceramics containing beryllium, and told my boss “no”. He didn’t like that, got upset and I walked out of the meeting. I was packing the books out of my office into my car when he sent someone down to beg me not to quit. I still said “no” to beryllium-containing ceramics. These materials reliably kill people in production.

        • Hilis Hatki

          Beryllium is it also used to prove the existence of a double bond between carbons? remembering my college organic class, it turns the solution red or else the red solution turns clear as the double bond is broken by the beryllium. I had red snot all weekend and it was not blood. It was Beryllium or something sounding like it.

      • BlueSonicStreak

        Thanks for this.

        Although if someone actually pulls this on me (I don’t usually go to Starbucks, but someone gave me some coupons for their food this week, so…), I DO plan to say something. But not aggressively. I think I may actually ask for the manager, as that’s going over the head of the trapped employee.

        • meanqueen

          Good. That’s what I plan to do.

      • meanqueen

        I agree with this. However we need to find out exactly what instructions were given to the counter clerks by the higher ups. Was it an option or was it a job requirement to broach political subjects? If it was optional and they bring it up with you, then they are fair game. If it was a job requirement, then I wouldn’t take it out on them.

      • AndrewInterrupted

        You’re right, Schultz is advocating workplace harass-ment. He could be subjected to a class action. That would bring a collective smile to AmRen-ers.

    • TomIron361

      C’mon fella. Leave these poor kids alone. They’re just doing their job. If they start talking that rubbish, just tell them what your order is and you don’t want to talk about it with them.

He is probably some recent college graduate, who paid over $100,000 for his education and spent four years being told how “privileged” White people are, only to be earning $9.00/hr. working at Starbucks after graduating, while some black, or Hispanic, with a lower GPA, got that $60,000/year job he hoped to get. Now, aren’t you sorry?

      • bilderbuster

        If they don’t want to know then they shouldn’t ask me.

          I’m with you. If they bring it up, I’m not holding back. For what it’s worth, I just went to the Starbucks down the road (wasn’t even thinking about this) and nobody said a word about RaceTogether. My suspicion is that few people will actually follow through with this. It’s a mess waiting to happen.

      • John Ambrose

        People should start leaving copies of chapter 13 from the Bell Cure on Starbucks’ tables- I’m sure that’ll help generate a much needed ‘dialog on race.’ Preface them with this quote from the New York Times Book Review: “The government or society that persists in sweeping their subject matter under the rug will do so at its peril.”

        • 李冠毅

          That won’t work. Those two books have been widely denounced as “racist”. Your average unaware would probably dismiss it.

    • Fredrik_H

      They shouldn’t have said they wanted to talk about race relations when they actually meant “whitey is racist – end of discussion”…

    Hopefully this will bring in the nasty, bigoted SJW’s to preach their progressive puritanical fantasy of race issues, and white hatred, to a majority of people who really don’t give fig, thus giving the non-fig giving majority a real world example of leftist lunacy. I think it would be wise for all those with a rational, reality based understanding of race to stay as far out of the way of this one as possible.

      Oddly enough, when I patronize Starbucks — which isn’t often, only when I’m on road trips — I do so precisely because I know it’s in a White section of town that is crime-free, other customers will be white, and the place will be neat and clean and I can trust the food and coffee. (I seek out Chick-fil-a franchises for the same reasons).

      I could get a large cup of coffee at McDonald’s for $1, but I would rather pay triple that at Starbucks because it isn’t filthy and staffed by illiterate 400-lb Bantus named “Quanisha.” At Starbucks there won’t be any black flash mobs, beat-downs, armed robberies, or unruly black children running about and shrieking. There’s no trash all over the floor, the bathroom is clean, and my car is safe in the parking lot. I challenge Schultz to put his coffee shops in Detroit and Ferguson and Compton and see how well they do. He’d have to install bullet-proof glass for his baristas to pass the coffee through, put bars on the windows, and hire armed security…

      • Flaxen-headed Strumpet

        McDonalds are not universally as you have described, but I’ll concede that one has to be very selective and have good street smarts in choosing one. A passenger with a smart phone should be able to pull up McDonalds (or any other chains) locales in strange country and then match the locations with Census Bureau data. Practically all Starbucks are probably close to your description.

  • Alucard_the_last

    People should talk about race but the issue should be anti-white racism which is not only everywhere but completely accepted. If I go into a Starbucks and they start to give me my DAILY anti-racism lecture, I will walk out and tell them why. Maybe I’ll print up a sheet of paper with the Newsom-Christian murders with a full explanation that the media wouldn’t cover it because the victims were white and the criminals were simians.

    How about a mention of the fact that many Blacks performed much better and learned much more when they had their own black-run schools?

    • John Smith

      During “separate but equal,” they often had poor equipment, old books and crappy buildings. If things were actually at parity, I just couldn’t see the problem. However, in many areas, like Kansas City, they tore down several substantial and historic schools and built modern showplaces rather than renovating some rather nice old buildings, even adding olympic-size swimming pools and planetariums to the new facilities. They still can’t learn and they set fire to the planetarium, IIRC, a few years after they built it.

      • WR_the_realist

        Yes, in Kansas City a crazy federal judge ordered the city to build an outrageous “perfect school” for blacks. It had an Olympic sized swimming pool (with an underwater viewing room), a robotics lab, a planetarium, an arboretum, a professional quality recording and television studio, an art gallery, a film studio, and a model United Nations with simultaneous translation capability. This was paid for by imposing a 150% property tax increase, a surcharge on the sales tax, and forcing the state of Missouri to kick in some money. (Yes, a lone judge imposed a massive tax increase — so much for constitutional government.)

        www cato org/pubs/pas/pa-298.html

        The result — blacks did as badly as ever, three grade levels behind the whites at the same school. The libertarian Cato Institute (which naturally believes that all humans are alike) says this was because they made the mistake of keeping the incompetent teachers (and giving them a big pay increase besides). No doubt there were bad teachers retained. But why did the whites continue to learn so much more from those “bad teachers” than the blacks did?

            I’ve learned from my time here that many commentators mention Jews under some code word, most popular being “the Tribe”, because openly saying bad things about Jews would get your post deleted. I have a question. What’s the thing with Jews? Are they really the ones most responsible for spreading liberalism and undermining Western society (and if so, why can’t we discuss them openly)? Or is it just the rants of some paranoid commentators?

          • BlueSonicStreak

            You could potentially get a LOT of different perspectives on this, particularly from said “paranoid commentators”…

            My take is this. Jews are a bright and talented people. They tend to rise to the top in any field (including academia, the media, and behind the scenes in politics). They also seem to be a people acutely aware of how they’ve been persecuted in the past, and paranoid about something like the Holocaust happening again – as a group of people, they are prone to being liberal and attacking things like race realism (because the history of acknowledging racial differences is so closely tied to things like slavery and the Holocaust). So yes, I think if you poke around a bit, you will discover that most liberal ideas have a lot of Jewish influence at the point of their conception and are pushed by a lot of Jewish people today.

            Where you go from there varies. Some people have decided there is some sort of Jewish conspiracy to wipe us out. Let me say: I think if you are looking for a conspiracy, you will find one. Indeed, you may even find Jewish people in some position of power who are radical enough to want to wipe us out. There are white gentiles who are that radical too, though, And even if such a radical conspiracy existed amongst ALL Jewish people to eliminate white gentiles…they are a minority of the population, and could hardly do much without us letting them.

            I’m under the impression that AmRen’s official stance is that individuals Jews can be race-realist and nationalist and therefore allies; that carrying on about them “controlling” us is defeatist and refusing to take accountability for our own stupidity in going along with liberalism; that many other sites exist on which to agitate about “the Jews”; and probably also that doing so undermines the credibility of this site, which they would rather not have.

            THAT BEING SAID. If the mods here would really not like to fuel any conspiracy theories, they really should not be deleting even the mildest criticism of the Jews like oversensitive children. That actually probably serves to make some people who would not otherwise think so wonder if the puppet-strings theories are all correct. I don’t think that was the goal here.

            My experience here is that even good-faith attempts to discuss the issue at all are deleted.

    So, we’ve got young Whites lecturing other Whites about how slave masters with whips forced blacks to pick coffee beans all day under a scorching sun.

    The fact that Starbucks partnered with Oprah to sell Chai Tea should be enough to keep any White far away.

    If you really like Starbucks coffee, you can make your own: dig up some used coffee grounds from the garbage – the older the better. Put the grounds in a cast iron frying pan, turn the fire on high until the grounds start smoking to get that burned flavor Starbucks is so famous for. Put the burned grounds into a used coffee filter, run boiling tap water over them three or four times and you’ve got it!

    Anyone who insists on going to Starbucks – and is asked about race should demand an answer as to why there are only three blacks out of 19 executives.

    • I’m pretty sharp at mathematics, and dividing three by 19 produces 15.8%, which means blacks are already over-represented at Starsucks.

        That’s not enough for blacks who claim they’re being systematically “locked out of the boardroom.”

    • BlueSonicStreak

      I used to work for Teavana (the tea company that Starbucks partnered with) and the Oprah thing has been terrible for them, near as I can tell.

      First, Oprah named their most popular chai one of Oprah’s Favourite Things, which I think actually may have lost them business because we had customers so disgusted with the connection that they STOPPED buying it when they had previously liked it.

      Then (a bit before I quit) they rolled out Oprah Chai, which is a nastier version of the above chai. Hard to describe, but it’s basically overpowering spices layered on a really weak tea base that can’t support the spice. On top of that, the tea is outrageously expensive (like $7.50 an ounce) and SUPER heavy. For the 2-ounce minimum, you’d get something like 8 cups out of it. It was like scooping small rocks into the tea tins. Almost no one was dumb enough to pay for THAT. And her Oprah Chai gift set was like $120.

      The really terrible part is that this stuff wasn’t supposed to ever get discounted, because between one and five dollars (a really cheap amount) of all Oprah Chai purchases went to a charity for black girls in Africa. If those African girls are waiting for Teavana stores to manage to fleece enough people on that tea to make more than a few bucks for them, they’re going to be waiting a long time.

  • “The campaign was the brainchild of Howard Schultz, 61, the company’s boss, who has a track record of speaking out about contentious topics, from gay marriage to gun control.”
    BABY BOOMER LIBERAL! People, I know you will be offended, but this is the age group that currently dominates the media and much of society right now. They are the grown up hippies and far leftists that spat at police and at returning veterans. Civil Rights, equality OF OPPORTUNITY was the brainchild of the WORLD WAR TWO liberals. Meanwhile, their kids said it didn’t go far enough. In the seventies and eighties, we had a brief backlash, getting it under control, for a time. (Ex. The Alan Bakke Case, Law and Order candidates, tougher law enforcement, “Three strikes” laws, etc.) But, the Boomer libs were waiting in the winds. And now they are in charge. We have a bunch of hippies running our society! God help us!

    • listenupbub

      I’m hoping the millenials backlash even harder.

      For one thing, we are having massive problems of our own in making a living, while working harder and achieving more than our parents did. We are getting more and more willing to consider the crazy idea that it is leftist social change that has screwed us.

      • I never believed those polls that said millenials were more liberal than Gen Xers or boomers. BULL! First, they are comparing these people right now, not when they were the same age. Of course people become more conservative when they get older and assume adult responsibilities. Try comparing these age groups at the same age. I am sure millenials are not that liberal at all. In addition, these surveys fail to note that millenials are the most non-White generation we have. Almost half of millenials are not even White. So, of course they are more “tolerant” of “diversity” and lean Democratic, duh. But compare WHITE millenials to WHITE X-ers and Boomers and factor in the same age, yeah, oh boy! I bet there are a lot of race realists among our young people. Too bad they are left with the crappy society that the older generation left them. “Thanks Mom and Dad.” (Hell, a good number of them are probably being raised by step parents as well. Yeah, high divorce rate. All so Mom and Dad could enjoy the life style they preferred and change partners.) Anyway, thank you for your reply and for reading my rant. If you are a young person, keep the faith and hang in there. Sorry us older folks left such a mess for you to clean up.

        • BlueSonicStreak

          Millennial here; and yes, I hope you are right. As a generation, I think we were mostly raised to be extremely leftist. Certainly all of my public schooling revolved around really liberal ideas, and I had liberal parents myself, so I was very radical when I was younger. So compare all our generations at, say, 20, and Millennials would probably rank as the most liberal generation.

          But that is not working out for us. Among those of us at the older edge of that generation, I have seen a rightward shift. Before I even left liberalism, I saw a lot of the older Millennials starting to get fed up with the “white privilege” narrative we had believed in before, to question it, and to argue on social media about the most blatantly anti-white propaganda. These are people who still consider themselves liberal, but no longer agree about widespread “privilege” or “institutional white racism.”

          Hope that trend continues.

            You were conditioned by cultural Marxists posing as high school teachers and university professors. Their duty as Marxist/Leninist agents is to turn you into a ‘useful idiot’ automaton.

          Millenials are majority-minority now, so I believe it. I’ve seen reports that white millenials are becoming more conservative, but as a whole generation….

    • pcmustgo

      Yup, like my parents…

    • pcmustgo

      On the one hand that’s true, on the other hand, people get more conservative and/or racist as they age with bad experiences that create wisdom….. Young millenials today are over-all, in their totality more race realist, drowning in diversity and having to deal with more racial/diversity related issues. A certain percent that attend liberal colleges (20% of them, at most) do become SJW’s and I think this group of young people/liberals is more “politically correct” than ever with all their various identity obsessions. So those that still are liberals are more extreme than ever about it… gay issues were hardly relevant back in the 60’s, now they’re paramount. I think the 60’s civil rights movement was more about “let’s be nice/fair/equal to everyone”… now it’s all about bashing whites/excusing away all kinds of awful behavior towards whites. But many of today’s SJW’s and young Liberals will eventually become middle of the road or even conservative , it just takes time for them to age out of it.

      • meanqueen

        I wish I could agree with you, but what I have seen is a whole host of baby boomers who have never grown out of their lefty nonsense. You’re right that their children are just as bad. I also haven’t seen evidence that millenials are more race realist but then I live in lefty mecca so might not be getting an accurate perspective.

    • John Smith

      The Boomers destroyed this country.

      • Not all, but by and large, our decline started when the World War Two generation came home, started families and wanted a better life for their children. As a result, they sired the most spoiled self indulgent generation in history. It became the birth of the “Youth Oriented Society.” Since then, our politics have been those of the adolescent. The rest, as they say, is history.

      So far as I know Chick Fil-A doesn’t proselytize in the restaurant. If you know the leanings of the owners, you support them for that reason, if you choose. Starbucks wants to pester you with political messages at the counter!

      • Strider73

        True. We visit Chick-fil-A often, and the employees simply do their jobs (and do it well). The only “proselytizing” the company engages in is staying closed on Sundays.

    I’m not a Starbucks drinker myself (I won’t turn it down but I don’t seek it out). Since they are all over the place, it’s a convenient place to host a quick business meeting.

Many of her poems are littered with the obvious results of some sort of sordid affair with an infected thesaurus. Don’t know if you noticed.

          Liberals worship her awful stuff for some reason. Even when I was a liberal, I privately thought she was being elevated solely for her race. It made me want to scream, “But it’s BAD, it’s BAD, it’s some of the worst poetry I’ve ever read and you can’t think it’s good, it’s BAD don’t you see?!?”

        Also, my love and support and those of friends and family helped… And, getting back to normal helped…

        As for the rapist… We heard through the victims witness alert program that he’d became a believing Christian… If true, it was a great thing that God did for him !

        As for the pea brain… I was quietly understated, direct, blunt, and straightforward with her and never gave her position “wiggle room” and I never made it personal…

    They should print crime rates per race statistics on their coffee cups.

    They should print that about 70 to 80% of violent crimes in the USA are committed by blacks despite their being about 13% of the population.

    They should print on their little coffee cups that most blacks are murdered by other blacks and rarely by whites ( or by white cops )

    They should print on their coffee cups names of white girls that have been beaten up, raped, tortured and murdered by blacks…and also that so few white men rape black women that the FBI stats say; zero%.

    They should print a list of all the unfair advantages non-whites get from Affirmative Action.

    They should print the names of University who lowered their standards so
    that more non-whites could study there and get an “Affirmative Action
    diploma”.

    They should print the names of all the non-colored people who did not get a promotion despite being qualified, because it had to go to someone who is not white ( despite being less qualified)

    They should print on their little coffee cups the name of all the companies that have been forced trough blackmailing ( no pun intended ) to spend/waste millions of dollars on “diversity programs”, because had they not the main stream media would have destroyed their reputation or they would have been stuck with costly laws suits launched by black pressure groups.

      That would be racist unless it was solely White crime statistics on coffee cups. There should be a class in all schools that teaches kids and young adults what and whom to watch out for.

      If you look for afrocentric websites, there are many ridiculous claims. They claim that the ancient Egyptians, the Olmecs, Incans, and Mayans, the ancient Chinese, and even the ancient Romans were black. They seem to think that somehow, white people stole all of their knowledge. Someone should tell them that if people steal your ideas you still have them afterwards. They never even invented a written language. They have no real history of their own, no accomplishments as a people whatsoever, so they lie and attempt to somehow blame whitey for their shortcomings. We were more advanced than black Africa thousands of years ago. The ancient Romans had running water in the distant past and black Africans still can’t maintain running water today. The ancient Europen people probably had a much higher standard of living them many black Africans do today.

          • There are still black kings and queens. I know that, because they send me e-mails all the time.

    Starbucks? Yuck. Tried it a couple of times. Only way to make it drinkable is to pour about 5000 calories worth of sugar, cream, and flavorings into it. Give me my Folgers or Maxwell House made in my $19 Mr. Coffee anyday….
    .
    I’m also not politically correct. So, not only am I not going into a Starbucks, I’m not going to let some purple haired, nose ring wearing “barista” lecture me on race relations.
    .
    So yeah, I’m glad Mr Shulz got some “negative” response to his latest folly with Cultural Marxism. Sounds like slowly but surely, the Saxons are waking up and beginning to stir…..

    I don’t suppose branches in Israel will be pushing their employees to talk about oppression of the Palestinians.

  • ghettovalley

    I find it very surprising that black people drink Starbuck’s coffee. Isn’t that a little too expensive for their taste? Are they accepting EBT cards now or something?

    Today I made Turkish style coffee on the stove as I talked to my hound about how “speciest” it was for her to chase the grey and fox squirrels in the yard.

    I always love it when some boot-licker has his/her boot-licking completely backfire on them. It’s so amazing how naive all these Marxists are, they have no idea the monster they’ve created.

  • ekwaykway

    All they do is pour your coffee in a cup, then got the nerve to have a tip jar? Are you kidding me? I got to add my cream and sugar, carry it back to my table and they want a tip. Unreal…..

    • Robert Smith

      The tips are for Mr. Schultz

      It’s like a bar, only coffee instead of booze. You’re paying for the space, to get away from your office your apartment.

      I like coffee shops, just wish they wouldn’t push anti White Leftist lies.

      • ekwaykway

        Still a sorry excuse for a tip jar. Mc Donalds serves better coffee, you don’t feel the need to tip them?

  • I ordered a coffee this morning, and while I had my money still in hand, the barista launched right into the spiel. I put my money right back into my wallet, said “Sell that coffee to a n****r” and walked right out (I did not go in uniform after all).

    • BlueSonicStreak

      Wait, at a Starbucks? What WAS the spiel?

      • Guest

        I’m not getting any play on race from the baristas. They just have stacks of newspaper sized Race Together pamphlets.

      The mental picture of you doing that is quite funny. I would’ve loved to have been there to pick up the pieces.

  • Donald

    I gave my daughter a lift from her job at UW. On the way home I went through the Starbucks drivethru. When they asked for my order, I said I just felt like talking about race. It got laughs.

  • Donald

    I always try to proselytize my pride in Western Civilization – My heritage. I always use humor but speak with conviction. A lot of kids (esp. White Males) surprisingly seem to look up to me. I love to mentor kids who’ve been brought up by white weasel fathers. Many of them long for the truth.

  • Max

    I’d ask the Starbucks coffee sales-droid if they take EBT cards. It ain’t blacks buying their burnt coffee.

    BTW, how many of these Starbucks stores are in da hood anyway?

    • TXCriollo

      None when do any of them need to be up for work

  • TCA

    Is there a difference between ‘price’ and ‘price point?’
    Love your handle.

  • kinja95

    How does Starbucks know the % of ethnic employees it has? Isn’t it illegal to ask that on the application?

    The Jews are at the forefront on this campaign against “white” racism, so it is no surprise that Mr. Schultz is doing the bidding as a good Hasbara tool to instigate a racial tensions. It’s always about the Non-Jewish Whites. It’s called Race Baiting and instigating race tensions. We have been moving forward in race matters over the last few decades, it still needs to improve, but now, since this Jewish campaign has started we see more and more race tensions.
    Who is destroying the United States? Is it blacks? No, it is not. Is it average White citizens? No, it is not.
    They are doing the same thing in Europe, to the general population. And straight from the horses mouth, we have it caught on video why and who is doing this: Do a youtube search for Barbara Lerner Spectre.

    • jaye ellis

      This race baiting, incite the Blacks, forced integration, open borders, anti White programs are heavily Jewish, but not by any means exclusively Jewish.

      It’s the same as early Soviet Communism/Bolshevism.

      It works well to simply call out the hypocrisy of the likes of Mr. Schultz who are fanatical “anti racists” in the USA/the Disapora, but also fanatically pro Zionists in Israel – making Israel and soon the occupied territories in to exclusively Jewish ethno states.

    • Sweden was the fount of white ethnonationalism before Barbara Lerner Spectre moved there.

      And also, the United States of America and the Republican Party were hotbeds of anti-Jewish anti-Israel anti-Zionist politics before Sheldon Adelson started writing checks.

      Man, this is one uncomfortable tinfoil hat.

  • pennawhytmn

    I wish, with every cell in my white body, that Mr. Schulz gets “diversified” or “culturally enriched” by one Dontrelle or RayShaun. Maybe his can be one of the select businesses Jesse Jackson wants forced to exist in the hood. Schulz can celebrate equality when his daughter comes home with some great news that she will soon be presenting him with a little bundle of swirl, courtesy of Devon Marcus Jackson. I assure anyone that regardless of his previous views, whether for or against the procedure, his precious little Sally will be in stirrups at the local “family planning clinic”.

  • Whirlwinder

    The vice-president of leftist agitprop thought he came up with a brilliant idea. So he put top management in a bind. They will go with it until the pressure gets unbearable. Then they will quietly drop the program and fire the idiot.

  • DiversityIsDeath

    Great, yet another chance for whitey to be lectured by angry negroes.
