    Kudos for Sheriff David Clarke for reminding us of the double standard practiced by the self-righteous guardians of social justice such as Starbucks, who flagellate themselves in public over the injustice of denying non-paying patrons use of their facilities – patrons who happen to be black: Not too long ago a Philadelphia Starbucks refused to let a police officer use the restroom telling him it was for paying customers.  Don't remember Starbucks closing 8000 stores for sensitivity training toward police. In 2015, an unnamed Philadelphia police sergeant entered a downtown Philadelphia Starbucks and asked to use the restroom.  He might have been the one...

    Before you watch this insanity, which made the social media rounds this week, may I remind you that Senator Barack Obama met privately with, and complimented, this man at an event coordinated by the Congressional Black Caucus -- a disgrace that was deliberately hidden from voters until Obama was safely out of office?  May I also remind you that numerous CBC members have courted this man's support, including the current deputy DNC Chairman, who hasn't been truthful about the nature of that relationship?  As I've previously argued, "minister" Louis Farrakhan is the Left's version of David Duke, in that...
  • DEFAMATION: The Starbucks Manager Accused Of Racism Is Probably About To Be A MILLIONAIRE

    04/22/2018 9:38:46 AM PDT · by Cubs Fan · 43 replies
    The former Starbucks manager who called the police on two non-paying black customers earlier this month may have a good case for bringing a defamation suit against the coffee company. In numerous public statements, Starbucks and its CEO Kevin Johnson have gone out of their way to imply that the the female manager, identified in media reports as Holly Hylton, was acting on subconscious racial motivations when she told the loitering customers to either buy a beverage or get out of her store. Crucially, Starbucks has also strongly implied that, as a factual matter, the manager violated company policy.

Mann, a white man who has spent years in the education industry, has begun leading workshops in San Francisco that encourage people in his demographic to explore feelings about race and gender and think about how to better assist women and nonwhites in their workplaces. Most diversity training is inclusive of all races and genders. But Stepping Up, Manns program that began in January, is unusual because the workshops are...

Mallory, who has been roundly criticized for her ties to notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan, accused the ADL, a Jewish advocacy group, of attacking black and brown people. She further demanded that Starbucks discontinue its partnership with the group, which was initiated afterStarbucks CEO Kevin Johnson mandatedracial bias training for all employees in response to a rash of public criticism over the arrest of two black men in...

Ieshaa Cash says last year Hylton was hired on as a manager at the 18th and Spruce Starbucks in Philadelphia and employees warned her that her new boss was controlling, aggressive, and emotional. That Starbucks location is under fire because that is where two Black men were arrested while sitting and waiting for a...

The employee says it’s true – and that she had read it on her Twitter the previous evening. After the black guy gets his free coffee, he gives it away to a stranger: turns out that the black guy is a conservative named Bryan Sharpe. He says he did what he did to make fun of liberals. He...

My friend XXXXXXX and I had finished touring the XXXXXXXXX XXXXXXX house, and decided we had enough time to go to Starbucks for a cup of coffee. What happened after we got to Starbucks was both humorous, and at the same time troubling. I ordered the coffee, and XXXXXX excused himself to the restroom. A couple of minutes later, I received a cell phone...

    Trying to get objective information on what actually happened at the Philly Starbucks is like searching for a unicorn, but I'm hoping well-informed Freepers can help. Civilized people of all races should not, as far as I can see, expect to go into a restaurant and expect to be able to sit there indefinitely, or use the bathroom, if they're not paying customers -- unless, of course, that's the restaurant's business model because they think it'll attract people to sit there and ultimately spend money. Have people on this board seen reliable reports, i.e. not ideologically driven, about what happened?

The firestorm after the arrest of two black loiterers at a Philadelphia store led to the usual weeping and gnashing of teeth by racial grievance mongers who quickly bullied the chain into announcing a shutdown of around 8,000 of their stores for mandatory racial bias training.A viral video by a black man who goes by the handle Hotep Jesus made the rounds in which the man – whose real name is Bryan Sharpe –...

    This is your brain. This is your brain on race. We can all easily imagine circumstances in which a manager of a coffee shop or restaurant might properly call the police to ask them to remove loiterers. These are places of business. Theres nothing wrong in principle with calling the cops on non-customers who are taking up space. And theres nothing wrong with police asking people to leave private property where they arent welcome, given that trespassing is a crime. When such people refuse, thats unfortunate, but what can the police do but arrest them? On the other hand, calling...

    Fake Starbucks coupons have begun circulating on social media in the wake of protests over the arrests of two black men who had asked to use a Starbucks restroom. The coupons, which feature images of Starbucks beverages, the brand's iconic color green and bar codes, appear to offer "people of color" or "African-American heritage" free drinks. "This is completely false and in no way associated with Starbucks," a Starbucks spokeswoman told CNBC. The images are being shared on 4chan, a website that gained notoriety for spreading pro-Trump memes and messages during the 2016 presidential election. In 2017, members of this...

    Another day, another boycott of Starbucks. The coffee company has been singled out for everything from its "no firearms in the store" request to its support of redefining marriage to its declaration it would hire 10,000 "refugees" in response to President Trump's immigration agenda. Unfortunately for Starbucks, its politically correct, feel-good social justice policies have hit a snag. The corporation's liberal-leaning initiatives are not enough to keep Black Lives Matter agitators at bay. Two unnamed black men, arrested for trespassing at a Philadelphia Starbucks last week, are the latest martyrs for the cause. Calls for a boycott of Starbucks ensued...

    Why is the default always "racism"? On Thursday, two men entered the Starbucks and asked to use to the bathroom. An employee told them it was only for paying customers. When they then sat in the store without ordering anything, the manager called the police, and the men were arrested for trespassing. No charges were filed. Johnson has called the incident "reprehensible" and apologized publicly for it. He said on Monday that he wanted to apologize to the men in person. "I'd like to have a dialogue with them so that I can ensure that we have opportunity to really...

    Have you seen this picture of the protesters trespassing in Starbucks? I told you yesterday, in the Church of Social Justice there is no such thing as forgiveness. When will virtue-signaling CEOs get the message? Caving to these outrage junkies and apologizing does nothing. Well, thats not entirely true. It does do one thing. Apologizing lets them know they can walk all over you. You officially become their bitch. As David Cole at Takis Magazine put it after Laura Ingraham apologized to the Camera Hogg: Apologize to a leftist for hurty words and before you know it youll find yourself...

    Two black men come into a Starbucks and ask to use the restroom. The manager tells them they must buy something first. They refuse and sit down at a table. The manager calls the cops and has them arrested for trespassing. They are later released with no charges. Cell phone video of the arrest goes viral. Human rights groups are livid. Charges of racism are weaponized by the legacy media to target a company and its employees. As a result, the CEO of Starbucks apologizes to the "victims" personally and closes 8,000 stores for "racial bias training." Starbucks gets what...
