Why Is There No Starbucks Coffee House in Selma?

Jen Kuznicki, CNS News, March 19, 2015

Starbucks executive Corey duBrowa recently deleted his twitter account, after what he said were abusive comments as a result of his push for a campaign in which his baristas were to engage with customers about race relations.

{snip}

A story from fastcocreate.com showed just what happens when you walk into a Starbucks wanting to engage in a discussion on race. Pretty much nothing. The baristas are young kids, just trying to do their job and get through the day, and are kind of embarrassed to even bring it up. I kind of feel sorry for them.

{snip}

But a friend of mine named Paul made a brilliant point.

If Starbucks wants us to talk about race, let’s start with why they don’t have Starbucks Coffee Houses in some of America’s cities that are mostly black, or have had a racially charged history?

My friend looked up various cities, and found that there are no Starbucks Coffee Houses in many of them.

Places like Highland Park, Michigan, which is at the center of Detroit, is inhabited by a population that is 94 percent African-American. Or in Benton Harbor, Michigan, which is almost 90 percent African-American. There is not a Starbucks in either town.

There is not a Starbucks in East St. Louis, Illinois, in which 98 percent of the population is African-American. Nor is there one in Gary, Indiana, whose population is 85 percent African-American.

The recent remembrance of the march on Selma, Alabama, had the president walking down the street with many people who fought for civil rights, but once again, Selma doesn’t have a Starbucks. Neither does Ferguson, Missouri.

Here is the point, if Starbucks wants to have a conversation about race, perhaps they should explain why they are not accessible to most of those they claim to advocate for and champion. {snip}

    The Conversation:

    Starbucks: ‘Did you know that blacks were victims of racism?’
    Me: ‘My sister was raped by a black man.’
    Starbucks: “Here’s your coffee. That’ll be $5.28. Have a nice day!’

    • Whitetrashgang

      Maybe starbucks should have a special blend for violent people,could call it bell curve special.

      • PvtCharlieSlate

        “Bell Curve Special” sounds too white …
        How about “I’ll have an Ignoramus Malus. Make it a Magnus.”

        • Realist

          “How about “I’ll have an Ignoramus Malus. Make it a Magnus.””

          Ya lots of blacks talk that way. LOL

      • Max

        Well, you can get your coffee black.

      • brior

        Ha, the bell curve latte with chocolaty sprinkles. Yes I’ll have one Mr.Nagan!

        • LS Wight

          And a White Guilt, extra whipped cream!

      • Earl P. Holt III

        The black coffee could never stay away from the white cream, and would be far more expensive than its flavor would dictate…

    • Garrett Brown

      Fantastic idea.

    • Mentious

      So many non-sequiturs could be said to the hapless barista to monkeywrench the thing straight off. As for me, I could respond with any of these:

      — My ex-wife was raped by a black man. He said if she made a sound he would break her neck because he was trained in martial arts bi the US military.

      — My favorite woman, my beloved, was raped by a black when she was a young teenager.

      — My big crush in high school, a red-headed Scott, was murdered by America’s worst serial killer, Coral Eugene Watts. He’s black. Did you know there are quite a lot of black serial killers and getting to be more…?

      “Here’s your coffee. Have a nice day” — indeed. The whole thing will be a can of worms to Starbucks and only embolden Whites to fight back with “Enough” and create much unpleasantness in these coffee shops.

      • LS Wight

        Starbucks was always a trashy place- hands dirty with Israeli filth. I went to bed one night and awoke the next day in Sweden!

        • Ashlar

          It is beyond pathetic when whites act the same way towards Jews, as blacks act towards whites.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      ANOTHER CONVERSATION:

      Starbuck’s Barista: “Did you know that blacks were enslaved over 150 years ago?”
      Cato: “Did you know blacks have murdered approximately 200,000 Whites in the U.S. since the mid-1960s?”
      Starbuck’s Barista: “Would you like fries with that?”

      • GuatemalanHousekeeper

        they have fries in Starbux? since when?

        • Earl P. Holt III

          Didn’t you get any? You mean I got the last ones?

      • WR_the_realist

        That sounds high. I think the actual number is closer to 50,000. Do you have a source for your 200,000 number?

        • Earl P. Holt III

          In the early 1980s, some newspaper in Australia reported that the number was 100,000 at that time. I suspect it has doubled by now.

          The Corrupt Leftist Media and political whores spend a great deal of time obscuring such black-on-white murders because of their incendiary nature.

          Don’t forget: O.J. Simpson would NOT be included in the FBI’s Uniform Crime Reports, for example…

    • Cid Campeador

      I can understand the Barista’s reaction to such a hideous opening line. What can you say that is going to reverse “Me”s perception of Blacks?
      I hope that your scenario wasn’t true.

  • There is one in Ferguson, it’s just that it’s inside the Emerson Electric HQ. Otherwise, zero in Bell Curve City St. Louis.

    • Oil Can Harry

      Starbucks would have lots of black customers if they sold banana-flavored coffee.

      • Reynardine

        Starbucks would have lots of black customers if they sold menthol-cigarette and malt-liquor flavored coffee.

        • Whitetrashgang

          Your hired.

        • Speedy Steve

          Grape soda flavored coffee with a jigger of VSOP.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            You guys are killing me…!

        • Starbucks coffee already tastes like cigarettes. Menthol might actually be an improvement.

          • LexiconD1

            Seattle’s Best is even worse.

            I prefer my own, home made, coffee.

          • Reynardine

            I once went full hipster and even roasted my own Sumatran beans. Hand ground them too, and it was one of the best cups I’ve ever had.

      • Sick of it

        They would have far more black customers if they accepted EBT cards.

      • Samuel Hathaway

        For some weird reason, blacks seem attracted to butter pecan ice cream and lemon custard ice cream.

        • John Smith

          Black walnut most of all, but fruit flavors generally.

          • Earl P. Holt III

            Only because there’s no bacon-flavored ice cream…

        • Reynardine

          In all honesty, I love butter pecan and lemon custard as well.

      • Johnny

        Lean flavored. With a double shot of cough syrup.

        • The All Seeing Bry

        And the time tested, Watermelon.

      • ElComadreja

        Fried chicken and waffles with maple syrup flavor.

        • Reynardine

          Does anyone remember the Ruffles Fried chicken and waffle chips? They were so repulsive.

          • Jason Lewis

            Gotta admit I bought a bag just to try. Nasty.

          • ElComadreja

            I bought a bag to try them. I ate about five and threw the rest out. My wife said “How bad can they be?” but she had the same reaction, LOL.

  • Cindy

    Starbucks questionnaire. Seriously, they’re passing these out.

    • shatwood

      To hell with them. My brother used to work for Starbucks for years during high school and college. He’s not one to be susceptible to this BS. Glad he got out when he did.

      • FinnShane

        I’ll take Wawa coffee any day ( It’s a Pennsylvania/South Jersey thing). None of this PC social engineering BS.

        • Weisheit77

          Don’t forget Delaware. We’ve got them, too.

          • FinnShane

            That’s right. Sorry, didn’t mean to leave out the First State!

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Yes, Delaware was the first state. What percentage of Americans know that? I’d wager no more than 5%, if that.

          • Seniorsquadldr

            All the liberal hell holes know as the east coast, should be given back to whoever will take them.

      1. Zero

      2. Zero

      3. No kids

      9. Zero, and surprisingly no gays even though the work is partially PR.

      Q1: Thankfully, no.

      Q2: Yes, a black kid that was as nerdy as I was. We still keep in touch on occasion, but we’re different people than we were in second through fourth grade.

      Q3: Black crime, white racial dispossession by means of immigration, and institutionalized hatred of non-connected non-elite white people. You only asked for one, but I gave you three, and if you don’t like it, well then, screw you.

    • Lion’s Mane

      Why, in question No.5, is there no mention of talking to persons of another race at ‘synagogue’?

      • FinnShane

        Good call on that one. Hmmm, why indeed?

      • Xerxes22

        In all fairness, it is kind of hard to find a person of another race at a synagogue, temple, Bar mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah or a fund raiser/rally for Israel.

        • Lion’s Mane

          That’s because ethnicity and religion are combined there. They are a people first, and a religion second. Have you ever seen a radio or televangelist proselytizing for their faith?

          • bilderbuster

            I seen plenty of Zio-Christians practically worshiping them on TV.

          • Lion’s Mane

            Christian Zionism is the greatest evidence of weakness in the White Race. There are at least some sincere liberals who oppose the U.S. and Britain’s involvement in foreign wars — and rightly so. We defend other nations’ borders while leaving our own open! Outrageous!

          • TF

            Atheism is the greatest evidence of weakness in the White Race today.

          • Lion’s Mane

            If you believe that John Hagee and Rod Parsley are great assets and sources of strength and enlightenment to Whites and White Advocacy, you are quite mistaken. What, exactly, are the Christian churches doing today to defend the White Race?

          • Calvinist Afrikaner

            I don’t even know what country you come from. Me, i am an Afrikaner here in South Africa. Maybe you are familiar with satanic churches which have homosexual pastors and similar things. I know there are lots of those in Northern and Western Europe.

          • Lion’s Mane

            Yes, Calvinist John Piper is a GREAT source of protection against miscegenation! ‘Can a White Woman Marry a Black Man?’ on YouTube. CALVINISTS, especially, are hellbent on destroying the White Race.

          • Calvinist Afrikaner

            It’s funny because here in South Africa, Calvinism is called racist.

          • Lion’s Mane

            Why? Are SA Calvinists different from those in the U.S. and Europe?

          • Calvinist Afrikaner

            Educate yourself englishman.

          • Lion’s Mane

            I used to be a member of a Calvinist church. So I need to know more about your Calvinist religion in South Africa.

          • Calvinist Afrikaner

            Calvinist Christianity is the religion of the Afrikaner Boer people and it will always be. You can’t be a Boer if you aren’t a Christian. I know, this is hard for englishmen like yourself to understand, we experience the same problems with the english we have over here.

          • Lion’s Mane

            The only thing hard to understand in this is why you fail to love White persons who disagree with your particular theology. Why, for example, do you not love White French Catholics?

          • Lion’s Mane

            Are not the Elect of every race and nation? Wouldn’t an elect Negro be of more value to you than a reprobate White European? Do you love only Christians — and to hell with the others?

          • Lion’s Mane

            Black Calvinists do exist. Cannot Blacks be of the Elect and Whites of the non-Elect? Why did God allow White South Africa to fall? Why does God allow Black to rule of Whites in your country? Isn’t that rather cruel? What about the farm-murders? Why does God permit this great evil against Whites in your country? Is it really your country anymore?

          • Spikeygrrl

            So now they’re a race because they have more class than to fish for converts — and their as yet unplumbed checkbooks — like both Negro AND WHITE Christian evangelists do?

            What a crock.

        • dukem1

          You wouldn’t find them at a fund-raiser for anything other than a funeral.

        • Awakened Saxon

          In all fairness, it is kind of hard to find a person of another race at a synagogue, temple, Bar mitzvah, Bat Mitzvah or a fund raiser/rally for Israel.

          And that’s exactly why Starbucks should be pushing for multi-racial synagogues if Starbucks were not targeting only one race for destruction.

          • John Smith

            Whoopi, Sammy and Lenny Kravitz?

        • The All Seeing Bry

          Not just Judaism, but most Churches are racially segregated. People naturally segregate themselves.

        • Spikeygrrl

          Another race than what? Many Jews are of Mediterranean/Semitic ancestry, but many others are Whites of European ancestry. There are also Negro Jews, and (although I have never met one in person) even Asian Jews.

          • 李冠毅

            If we’re talking about Ashkenazi Jews, they are a race with a rather distinctive gene pool. Genetic studies have found them to be part European and part Semitic. Some DNA testing websites lists “Ashkenazi” as a distinctive racial group separate from Europeans.

          • Spikeygrrl

            They are a small genetic subset of Jewish religion and culture, as I acknowledged in my post. Saying that they are totality of Judaism is as inane as saying “All Christians are Latino.”

          • Irish

            90% if the worlds Jews are Ashkenazi..The one exception is in Isreal it’s self where Ashkenazi Jews are a majority of the population, but not overwhelmingly so. Sephardic Jews (North African , Middle Eastern, Spanish) have largely fled those places for Isreal since its founding in 1948..Netanyahu is one such Sephardic Jew, Syrian if I recall. The Ashkenazi largely run the country, and like their American & European brethren are social liberals often resented by the Sephardics.

          • Spikeygrrl

            If this is true (which I seriously doubt) then I must have gone to school with and/or worked with and/or dated the lion’s share of that remaining 10%.

          • Irish

            Ok, I stand slightly corrected. Prior to WW2 the Ashkenazi population was estimated to be 92% of the worlds Jewish population. According to the encyclopedia Brittanica online they are something over 80% today.

          • Spikeygrrl

            I’ll meet you halfway:
            As a “giftie,” most of the people I have gone to school with and/or worked with were also “gifties”: extremely valuable to teachers and employers, relentlessly persecuted by the Idiocracy. My heartfelt support of Jews and Asians may owe a lot to me also being an IQ outlier (female, 160) who has experienced first-hand on a daily basis the prejudice that they endure too.

          • Irish

            While I generally defer to people brighter than myself ( In this case by 30 points according to the last 2 test I’d taken) I think your sympathies for the 1st of those ethnic groups (while perhaps admirable) is misplaced. They have proven, and continue to do so. That they do not have European-Christians best interest at heart at all.

          • Spikeygrrl

            You have every right to your opinions. I just don’t share them.

          • Spaniard in LA

            Do you know of an accurate test one can take online?

          • Irish

            A cousin of mine sent me one last year, and just out of curiosity I found a fairly long one online a few months back..I scored within 3 points of each other on both, which was roughly the same as a written one I’d take nearly 20 years ago…I can’t recall the name, but just look for a long one that isn’t trying to sell you something..

          • ricpic

            Netanyahu looks totally Ashkenazi to my Ashkenazi eyes. Not even a hint of Sephardi. Which doesn’t mean you’re wrong. Just appearance-wise he is Ashkenazi both in features and pale coloring. Sephardis tend to be olive skinned and more angular.

      • Michael Ryan

        Come on because it’s a religion and a race, duh.

        • Lion’s Mane

          I understand that. This is why we should expect these people, above all others, to keep silent if another religion — Mormonism, say — opposes miscegenation on religious and doctrinal grounds. (Mormonism used to have such a rule, as did some other churches in America.)

          • TF

            Atheism is the problem in Western societies. It’s because they have allowed themselves to lose their Christian faith and worship “science” instead.

        • Lion’s Mane

          According to the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles , 30 May 2003., Howard Schultz is a religious Jew. Accordingly, he should not distress himself over the racial demographics of any place of religious worship.

          • You seem to have unfortunately missed the fact that freedom of association is nearly a dead letter in the current US.

        • Spikeygrrl

          You’re half right. Judaism is a religion (duh), but not a race (double duh).

          • Michael Ryan

            if you mean they are semites and so are others true but race can also mean a people distinct from the mega races we modernes think of as races. the irish cornish picts gaulic french are some races of the celtic race which is one of the northern european races of Caucasians .recently a DNA map of great britain identified eight distinct races all still geographically separated a thousand or more years later surprisingly the normans were no longer identifiable

          • Spikeygrrl

            You might have a point there, if you presented it comprehensibly. I can’t make heads or tails of what you have written here.

        • Samuel Hathaway

          This is why I despise the feminist movement. They champion anti-motherhood, and if you think that’s a bit nutty consider this: they chamption abortion on demand and lesbianism. They champion easy divorce. they champion easy contraception. In summary, they champion everything that encourages women from becoming mothers… abortion, lesbianism, contraception.

          • Cindy

            I don’t understand feminists today at all. Equal pay act was passed in 1963. There’s really nothing more the government can do.
            The rest is up to us.
            Feminists seem to be looking for “freebies.”
            Free childcare, free contraception.
            Feminists are now blacks looking for a handout, always complaining and playing the victim.
            I’m gen X. We were taught to go for it, not play the victim.

          • John Smith

            Feminist women want to both go for it AND play the victim as suits their needs.

          • Most people like screwing, but expecting taxpayers to cover the costs is like my demanding free, tax-funded fishing tackle.

            Feminists are disgusting…if one came to my door back in the day trying to get me to vote or work outside the home, I’d slam the door in their faces! They’re worse now but oh would I love to tell them what I.think of them..

          • Samuel Hathaway

            Notice all those attractive, young white women next time in the contraceptive commercials. They are the target demographic for the feminist anti-motherhood campaign.

            My mother worked in supervisory positions with Bell South until my my older brother was born. She was a stay-at-home mom from then, until we all entered high school.

            The problem with feminism is that they always prefer a single childless woman to take the place of a married man who has a stay-at-home wife with children. Feminists have never considered what is good for the wives, mothers, sisters, or daughters of the men who are rejected for good jobs in favor of single women who don’t care about having children.

          • refocus

            The prettiest and most intelligent girl in my class was hired by sw bell telephone in our senior year of high school. She was paid nicely, more than any of the boys who only had odd jobs while going on to university. She became the lover of a senior vice president for fifteen years… no children. He dumped her and then she took early retirement. No children.

            Sigh…I’m pulling on my rhetorical Kevlar gear in anticipation of the crowd of wing nuts who’ll now tell me that voting never accomplishes anything any more. Bring it on, folks, I’ve heard that song before. I pick my battles carefully, and this has always been one of them.

          • Maryrose

            Oh I am sorry! I forget with typing no one can get the sarcasm or dark humor. No I do vote, I was just talking about feminists back years ago when it first started. I am glad we get to vote.

            I just don’t like how feminists hate men and use other women for their agenda

            I challenge you to name one –just ONE! — instance in which NOT voting is superior to voting. And no, you can’t change already-established rules (e.g., secret ballot) to manufacture your example.

          • Robert Smith

            Too easy. Any vote for a Republican presidential candidate in the last 20 years.

            No cigar for you today, but thanks for playing.

          • Robert Smith

            Okay, well thanks anyway. My mom doesn’t let me play with people who can’t do basic math anyway.

          • Spikeygrrl

            I stand corrected. It’s just hard for me to remember that the 1980s are now ancient history. For me, the 80s seem like last week, especially when I see that stranger in the mirror who looks so OLD…sigh….

            Still, I maintain that it is NEVER of value NOT to vote, if only for one’s own sanity’s sake. People who vote are at least trying to help, and thus can hold their heads up high regardless of the election’s outcome. And people who do not vote forfeit their right to whine about the election’s outcome.

          • Irish

            I vote every election cycle..Does absolutely no good..The demographics in Broward County are just to hard, even in a good year..Twenty years ago my vote in Virginia mattered, but not so much any more..If you believe in one man one vote democracy, we are losing our Country in more ways than one..”Demographics are destiny”

          • I vote in every election, as due to the TaBoR law, any tax increase anywhere in Colorado must be put to a municipal, county or state ballot initiative. There are always tax increases for some dumb-*** project(s) that I want to vote against. My take on those is that government likes to pretend that it needs more money for important projects, while diverting regular tax revenues into things the voters would never approve, or sticking it away in slush-funds. I voted for a road-widening project that would also include sidewalks and bicycle paths six years ago, and that project is still sitting half-finished. I keep this in mind every time the city says it needs more money.

          • HE2

            I always vote. Last Nov. I posted here that I read over the literature about each candidate and voted as close to straight KKK as possible.
            I vote down school measures too, as we do not use public schools for obvious reasons.
            Our little ‘burb is handsomely supported by speeding and minor traffic violations [cell phone use while driving is a biggie.]
            An adjacent ‘burb uses our main drag as a cut-off from the freeway, so one can imagine the potential income base supporters passing through in their muscle cars.

            I vote, but it always feels like an absolutely futile act. The few times there was a candidate I could actually feel positive about he lost.

          • Spikeygrrl

            I am so sorry for your disappointing voting experiences. Among my own earliest voting experiences was voting for Reagan. Who won. Twice.

            This pretty much exploded the heads of my scholarly, well-intentioned Democrat parents (but not hard-Left, today they’d be called Conservative Democrats). They taught me that voting was not only a privilege but also a duty. But they never dreamed I’d use it “like that!” LOL

            I am glad that neither of them lived to see the travesty Leftists have made of the Democrat party.

      Are we counting east Asians, or only one race in particular that no one cares for, including many who are that race?

    • Samuel Hathaway

      1. How have my racial views evolved from those of my parents? My views are much more radical pro-white, pro-Western civlization than theirs. W[e did not grow up around blacks, live with them, work with them or go to school with them. We knew blacks existed and occasionally had questions about them; otherwise, the topic was never discussed nor dwelt upon.

      2. Did you have a childhood friend of a different race that you’ve lost touch with? Why? No, I never had a childhood friend of a different race. And I don’t feel I was socially deprived or handicapped because of it. I count it a great privilege, and thanks Mom and Dad, for raising me in the stereotypical “Leave It to Beaver”, “Donna Reed Show”, “Andy Griffith” environment.

      3. What is America’s greatest race challenge? for whites to dare to find their collective voice and fight back against the racial bullying of the schools, businesses, and white politicians.

      • Bo_Sears

        What you are talking about is nothing more nor less that tribalism to match the existing tribalism of African-, Asian-, and Hispanic-Americans. Until we erect some sort of structure to represent us, we will continue to be seen by others as “white tribalists” whose every claim is suspect without any of the benefits of real, live tribalism. We are the only people upholding some kind of American nationalism, and we are accused of simply seeking to enforce our own tribalism. Why not just go ahead and do it?

    • uncommonsense2010

      THIS IS BULLCHIT!

      Blacks are only 13% of this country. THUS odds are many many many whites only can consider blacks on average 13% of their friendship base.

      Think about it, If blacks stay centralized in the inner cities, and not out where whites live, then that makes blacks responsible for NOT giving white people access to them.

      Then to turn around and claim the lack of knowing a black person is racism?

      Seriously? Nigga’s, how many CLAMS do you know personally? Why don’t you know any clams?

      Is it because they live under the ocean and you don’t hang out there?

      Well, does that make you Anti-Clam? NO it means you don’t get to know them if they don’t come out and chill wif ya.

      Give me a damn break people, racism is a LIE.

        and I’m sure someone’s thinking right now… “yo, my best friend is a clam”

      I have ____ drug dealers of a different race. I have _____ cab drivers of a different race. The sex offender registry in my neighborhood has _____ members of a different race. Diversity is our strength.

    • John Smith

      I could answer several of those questions in the affirmative, but that doesn’t mean that I had a favorable interaction that convinced me to embrace diversity, which is the implication here. Instead, it made me seek to avoid negroes.

      • I had plenty of East Asian friends in college, grad school and from work when I was a chemical engineer, but no blacks, no Mexicans, no subcontinentals and no Arabs. I don’t want those as friends. I don’t want those as neighbors or co-workers. Starbucks stumping for this unmitigated [email protected] may actually backfire. I had plenty of conversations on race with Everett Lee and William Lao (both ethnic Chinese) in Australia, and they were among the most hilariously unapologetic racists I’ve ever met. They said things that Politically Correctness has tried to make taboo for whites, which made their company quite refreshing.

    • Light from the East

    • JGTThrasher

      “How have my racial views evolved from those of my parents?” I am more racist because I have grown up with more of the effects of diversity. “Did I have a childhood friend I’ve lost touch with? Why?” Because I saw patterns in the way they acted. “What is America’s greatest race challenge?” A word I am not allowed to use and those who support them.

  • Liquor stores, pawn shops, hair weave places, Negro juke joints, crack houses, and similar reflections of black culture leave no room for upscale coffee shops to make money. Libtards prefer to do their self-righteous moralizing about race from the comfort of black-free zones like Starbucks.

    I would boycott the damn place but I’ve never been in one and do not intend to ever go in one. I prefer to be around working class white people, not the kind of snooty types who hang out at expensive coffee shops.

      Everyone is so fearful of a slip of the tongue, fearful of creating the next media scandal
      on CNN and MS-LSD that now prominent GOP voices cannot answer the obvious in the affirmative that Obama sympathizes more with Muslims than he does with the Jews of Israel????!!!!!!

      • John Smith

      Truth to tell, their coffee isn’t very good. It tastes burnt.

    • AndrewInterrupted

      With coffee being such a basic staple and so plentiful in all its forms, I don’t know how they’ve been so profitable. Maybe it’s actually a money laundering operation, like the mafia pizza joints.

      • There are weird little boutiques along the Pearl Street Mall in Boulder that sell bizarre stuff, and looking in the windows of these places, I never see any shoppers inside. I figure those are just drug money laundering ops.

    • LHathaway

    If Mr. Schultz wanted to help, he should open Starbucks franchises ONLY in the ghetto. Thus, forcing White hipsters to enter the very neighborhoods that although they defend, they avoid like the plague. So, Mr. CEO of Starbucks: I propose you close all your existing Starbucks, and open new ones in those area of the country that are majority African American! I’m sure the lure of your outstandingly great coffee will entice all the White hipsters into Detroit, Camden, Gary, etc,. to buy your superior, overpriced coffee. This will accomplish two things:Jobs for Blacks as baristas. And. an EXCELLENT opportunity for your liberal White base to put their money where their mouths are AND engage in discussions about race.

    As a matter of fact, Mr. Schultz, if you don’t do what I have suggested, well, you are nothing more than your average, run of the mill, lying scumbag liberal.

        Maybe if you could smoke coffee instead of drink it….?

        • You probably could. I think caffeine is present in coffee and tablets like “No-Doz” as the free base, rather than an acid salt, so it would definitely be smokable. I suspect that the process of being absorbed directly into the bloodstream through the lungs, all at once, instead of gradually through the stomach lining would make the effects quite unpleasant, and possibly also unsafe.

  • Barabbas

    I hope one of these poor baristas realizes that this policy is a clear violation of labor law and amounts to workplace harassment and mental/emotional abuse. These employees are being intimidated and essentially forced to participate in an emotionally/mentally uncomfortable and often traumatic activity that has nothing to do with their jobs and was not a part of their original terms of employment when they accepted their jobs. They absolutely cannot legally be compelled to engage in such activity. And even if management claims participation is voluntary, there is no doubt that employees nevertheless feel various forms of coercive pressure to comply, including abusive accusations of racism, personal immorality and group ostracism toward those who resist this tyranny.

    If you feel the angry walls of Diversity™ closing in, and need a respite, here are some recommended black-free venues:

    1. home improvement stores such as Lowes, Home Depot, or Benjamin Moore paints
    2. botanical gardens and garden centers
    3. gun stores, shooting ranges
    4. SCV meetings, Civil War battlefields and historical reenactments
    5. stock brokers’ offices
    6. German/Hungarian restaurants
    7. classical music concerts, opera, ballet
    8. country music bars and American Legion posts
    9. museums, libraries, book stores

    • John Smith

      I’ve seen blacks at shooting ranges and gun stores, but most whites pretty much shut down activity while they’re there to keep an eye on them.

    • Douglas Quaid

      It’s true, I go to Lowes and Home Depot fairly often, if I see a black there it’s usually an employee. There is this black family about a mile from me that owns a pretty choice piece of property at least 20 acres, in its prime it was probably a nice farm, there are several barns on the property. They’ve since littered the property with a bunch of trailers and garbage, the barns are packed with junk and seem to be begging for a strong wind to knock them down to put them out of their misery.

      The main house is in a ridiculous state disrepair. The shingles on the roof have a style that if I dated looks to be from around 1975, the wood siding has obvious signs of rot, there are boards over some windows.I am always amazed when I see smoke coming from the chimney indicating signs of habitation.

      This is just one example among many I could give of black owned properties in complete disrepair.

      I was at a home Depot last week to buy a hose clamp. It was after work & the place was pretty empty. I scouted around on my own but was unable to find it so I asked the nearest (and only visible) employee where it could be found – a youngish Negro woman. In return, I got a blank stare and then she sauntered off to ask one of the other employees.

      I’m sure she is smoldering that she is not paid more.

      • Irish

        I don’t even bother doing that anymore..Unless he’s a Black man in his 50’s at a minimum I know I’m getting a blank stare, or not my department..I’ll walk several additional isles to find a White person.

      • The Home Despot staff I’ve encountered are generally know their store’s inventory quite well. My complaint about that chain is that many things are available mail-order only, like 6″ wire wheels and 6″ cotton buffing wheels for my bench grinder, or 64″ replacement blades for my metal-cutting band saw. I wasn’t about to pay their prices and still wait, so I ordered from Harbor Freight.

        One thing I have noticed is that for simple things like hose clamps, Wal Mart’s hardware section very often has lower prices.

    Starbucks just does not have a big pull with the black community and never will (unless they radically change their image/marketing). Ordering the non-fat double shot super-duper latte, the new age music CDs, the overpriced sandwiches and bottled water (ad nauseam) are really for people who mouth ‘diversity’ and “black lives matter” but have never lived in the hood. I noticed that Starbucks stock has gone up $4 in the last four days since the CEO made his “race together” proclamation. Interesting..

    Excerpt from article about Starbucks

    And as for Schultz himself, the city he lives in, Seattle, is a pretty white part of the country. It is only 7.9% black, but Schultz has managed to find a section of the city to live in that has an even lower black population. He lives in an area known as Madison Park, where of its 1,538 residents only 80 are black.

    But his part of this exclusive area is even more exclusive. It is a gated community of nine houses. Schultz paid $21.7 million for his. Do you want to venture a guess as to how many of the other eight homeowners in his double-exclusive area are black?

    Why someone would want fine coffee and espresso drinks is beyond the realm of understanding for most blacks. They would rather get a 64 oz big gulp of syrupy gas station “cappuccino” than acquire an understanding and taste for excellence. Case and point example, This afternoon I needed some tools in a pinch and ended up in line at a Family Dollar in a pretty rough neighborhood (blacks everywhere). There were only 3 people ahead of me, all blacks, and it must have taken 10 minutes to get to the cashier, no exaggeration. The black 2 people in front of me was buying several liters of garbage soda, saltine crackers, and these disgusting looking cans of tiny wieners in some sort of gelatinous sauce.

    It really is a marvel that such a person is able to live past the age of 20 eating like that. She was jawing away with the cashier and the black guy directly in front of me talking about how she has been “Watch’n cable all day”, that’s when I realized why this was taking so long, this was the highlight of this black lady’s day.

    All of this is simply to underline the point that Starbucks could never be marketed to this demographic, they don’t have the desire/ability to appreciate and discriminate between and item of quality and an inferior item. Thus, Starbucks would never make it in a majority black area just like…

    Craft beer……..blacks will always prefer a big 40 of Colt 45 to a bottle of Belgian ale.
    Well made and tailored suits…….blacks will always prefer idiotic flashy outfits (pimp suits)
    Handcrafted furniture…..blacks will always prefer beanbag chairs to Amish made
    Vitamins…..blacks really don’t seem at all interested in taking charge of their health.
    Classic Books on any subject….Written by a bunch of whites, so nuthn important
    High end pet supplies…..The dog of choice for blacks is pit bull, housed in a shed, fed table scraps and taught to be aggressive.
    Camping equipment….ever seen any blacks camping? Me neither.

    I welcome additions to the list.

          For that and many other reasons, I never allow my children to eat fast or frozen, prepared food.
          Unless one buys organic or locally grown farmer’s market produce, that sold in supermarket produce bins is GMO’d. Farmers are banned from planting their own recycled seeds, instead, they must buy from Monsanto.
          Fish is no longer an option for my family either, except what we buy from our local third generation fishmonger who sends out his own fleet.
          Fish sold in Walmart, other large chain supermarkets, is Asian farmed in filthy, human and animal excrement polluted ponds, then shipped under unhygienic conditions.
          Problematic is the fact that Asian fish farmers allow no FDA oversight.
          A S.F. fancy restaurant chef told me, “we can serve a piece of questionable fish with a five dollar sauce, tack on a $45 menu price, and nobody is the wiser.”
          As Asian fish growers allow no FDA oversight, FDA says, never, ever, eat raw or underdone fish.
          CDC reported much of what we think a bout of gastrointestinal flu, is actually food poisoning.

Until then, industrial pollution and untreated sewage will remain a major turn-off.

    • Mack0

      Agreed. It’s not a conversation when you force the other person to participate. At that point it becomes a lecture/sermon to a trapped audience. Whatever message Starbucks hopes to deliver will buried by the annoyance it creates in the customer who came to Starbucks to buy bad coffee not be talked down to.

      It’s also a terrible for business because it increases the time between transactions resulting in people waiting in line for longer than is necessary. It also forces Starbuck’s employees to engage in a conversation they most likely don’t want to engage in and will be in turn less than enthusiastic about having. It also unfairly puts employees in the awkward position of dealing with blow back from customers who will take their annoyance out on the employee.

  • AndrewInterrupted

    “If Starbucks wants us to talk about race, let’s start with why they don’t have Starbucks Coffee Houses in some of America’s cities that are mostly black, or have had a racially charged history?

    Why no Starbucks in heavily majority black cities?
    1) Every low life cretin would be hanging out all day for the free Wi-Fi and still purchase nothing- all day long.

    2) The type of people who frequent Starbucks , even black yuppies, would attract muggers and panhandlers by the dozens.

    3)Because of #2, those potential customers would just keep on driving to the safe part of town- their own living room.

    4) Have you ever waited on negroes before? So unbelievably difficult that black bar tenders and waitresses hate having them as customers. Don’t believe me? Ask one.

    5)Ever been waited on by a young black woman at any fast food establishment? Not exactly customer satisfaction oriented.

    6) Ever been around in a place where 5 or more negroes hang out? You’ll hear some of the most vile and disgusting language used regardless of there being women or children or elderly folk around.

    7) Add in thievery, vandalism, the extremely likelihood of “protests, drug dealing, etc

    It all adds up to the fact that it would be a very poor business decision to open a Starbucks in any of those kinds of places.

    Today at Starbucks there was a large black woman at the head of a short line, I had about 5 minutes to get my coffee and go to meet a deadline. There was also a black barista behind the counter. The two were jawing away like they knew each other from somewhere although it seemed like they had just met, ever notice how blacks are like that? They all seem to know each other. Anyway, this lady kept asking stupid questions about sandwiches while it dawned on me that if I was going to be on time I needed to just leave.

    And leave I did, by the time my 5 minute window was up the black had yet to order anything, she was still asking questions about different items. I had to face the world coffee-less because of this broad.

The sickle-cell gene confers resistance to malaria, and the Tay-Sachs gene works the same way with typhus, which was once very common in eastern Europe (typhus in fact decimated both the Serbian and Ottoman armies during World War One).

    Ha! Probably because they know whitey is such a sap for “causes” like the environment, where bantu and mestizo people are far too enriched to worry about that — they just throw everything around them and when it piles up in a big stinky heap, they climb up on it and picnic on the hill, surveying the beauty of their surroundings. Like Jane Austen’s Emma or Elizabeth looking over the fields and downs of Hertfordshire. Same thing, we’re all the same, right? That brings to mind something I often saw growing up in NYC and the surrounding boroughs (especially there) – large families and other people picnicking on the small strips of grass at the side of the expressways or parkways. Some even funnier ones are the curbs set up in the middle of large avenues like Broadway upper West side, where they would sit themselves down and hang around watching the time pass. In the middle of the traffic, an idyllic place to sit on a small patch of grass big enough for a shrub. Jeez.

    White folks need to restore their moral authority, racial pride, and tribal unity.
    They must stop feeling morally/spiritually deficient, indeed as if unless they have holy people-of-color on their side, they are a bunch of ‘racist’ beasts. I say whites should revel in the good race-ism(or racialism) of pride, unity, and power.

    This sense of white moral deficiency has reached such grotesque levels that white churches now believe they have to fly the ‘gay flag’ to score moral points.

    Jews as Jews feel justified. Blacks as blacks feel justified. Mexers as Mexers feel justified. Muslims as Muslims feel justified.
    But whites as whites feel incomplete, empty, and guilty. Only by associating themselves with holy Jews, magic Negroes, angelic homos, or etc, can straight white gentiles feel any kind of moral worth.

    Enough with this associative pride and worth. Whites should feel pride and worthy simply for being white. Whites need to restore independent pride and worth. Sweden was Swedish for many centuries, and it was full of pride. It’s only in recent times, due to PC cult of ‘diversity’ spread around the world by academia and Hollywood, that white nations began to feel deficient unless they swallow this magic pill called ‘diversity’.

    A truly proud people feel worthy for what they are, not over whom they are associated with.

    Can you imagine Jews feeling unworthy unless they have Chinese or Eskimos by their side endorsing them?

    First the preamble:
    Everyone knows that the white race is the most evil group of people that have ever inhabited our beautiful blue planet; they have raped and murdered more innocent people of color, more animals in the wild and polluted more that all other people combined.

    The question(s):
    How do you feel about being a member of the hated white race and what are you going to do about it?

    • I think I’ll go fishing with heinous, hand-made artificial lures that needlessly provoke predatory instincts in the poor, innocent fish, causing them to bite into sharp hooks.

      And then I will disembowel them, scale them, behead them, cook them and eat them. I can’t help it; I’m just bad that way.

    You should pull up the Clarence Thomas hearings back in (1991?) when Strom Thurmond referred to Molly Yard, Eleanor Smeal and other assorted angry feminists as “lovely ladies” right in front of them at the hearings.

    Would you like your coffee Black or White?

    Has it come down to choosing the color of your Coffee?….Really!

  • regbs

    The same stats go for bohemian bourgeois liberals who live statistically in the last diverse enclaves.

  • Sid Ishus

    My city started curb side recycling a number of years ago. The dindus used the containers for their garbage. City hall was dumbfounded on why certain neighborhoods just couldn’t get with the program.

  • Harvey42

    Maybe, they should add “purple drank” to the menu.

      Sippin’ the Syzzup…word.

  • Susan

    Well, come on. It has nothing to do with race and everything to do with economics. No business will exist if it has no customers. Starbucks is usually only in places where the people who live there actually buy their expensive coffee drinks.

    • ekwaykway

      How is it that only white people can be racist? Do people of color get a vaccine or something? Perhaps a card to carry around? Why in conversations about race does it never apply to them too? We are the only ones with this affliction, never them. Hmmmm….

      • Susan

        Because that’s the way the US government wants it, and this corrupt government subsidizes everything blacks do. Yes, they do have a card; it’s called race card! It’s magic, too, by the way. It keeps blacks whining and complaining, and keeps dumb whites feeling guilty and shamed. For 50 years the government and its media minions have been spewing propaganda, brainwashing blacks to believe that their ignorance & pathological behavior are caused by white racism. And the word racist has been bastardized to mean hate. It also brainwashes dumb, liberal whites into believing they’re evil and that they cause black pathology & dysfunction. The corrupt government does this because it’s in best interests to keep blacks agitated, mad, & blaming, & keep dumb whites believing they’re guilty of something. All this creates division between blacks/whites/liberals/conservatives/dems/republicans. Divide and conquer is the oldest ‘trick-in-the-book’. It’s imperative for our dysfunctional government to maintain division.

  • disqus_irCdmAu8It

    Like most über-liberal, left-wing lunatic Democrats, the idiots at Starbucks are racist, and hypocrites. They just wont admit that they are such.

  • Cid Campeador

    Liberals/ Progressives are generally White people who throw the “R” word around like confetti while they Champion the Cause of the “Oppressed” ( a code word for Afro-Americans) while, at the same time, taking great pains to ensure that they don’t have to reside in any proximity to their “oppressed” clients.
    The above mentioned are usually adherents to the agenda of the Democratic ( almost funny) party who has used the Afros and other 3rd World immigrants as their “useful idiots” that

    keep their patrons in power while the Patrons keep them in perpetual dependence.
    This “dependence” has become an addiction to the Afros to the point where they become hostile to any Black who works to achieve a better life; a good example being Charles Paine from FOX Business. His life story is very interesting.
    The Starbucks agenda was/ is just another way to humiliate and inculpate Whites and this task is given to young kids who just want to finish their shift and go home,

    ANOTHER CONVERSATION AT STARBUCKS:

    Barista: “Did you know that blacks have been the victims of discrimination?”
    AmRen Reader: “How’s that Sociology degree working out for ya?”
    Barista: “Would you like a croissant with that?”

    Guilty white liberal girls like their coffee the same as their men…strong and black.

    • Earl P. Holt III

      Yes, but coffee won’t kill them…

    I thought Mike Brown just left a Starbucks before he stole the cigars.

  • Ashlar

    Its because they aren’t into having their products looted and their stores burned to the ground.

    Answer to the title above: Starbucks bans firearms.
