Good Morning! If you, like most non-super heroes, need a cuppa joe to get rolling theres good news!
You can once again grab a cup at Starbucks without having your white privilege challenged by the barista with a dual degree in philosophy and gender studies. The coffee chain has dropped their Race for the Cure campaign, due to extreme blowback; in other words, it was effecting the bottom line.
According to the Instapundit, part of the problem may have been the hypocrisy:
STARBUCKS: Where Only The Coffee Is Black! Its not shocking at all that this lame conversation about race stuff is coming from an organization thats as white as a Netroots Nation conference, an Obama campaign HQ, a New Republic alumni get-together or a Vox editorial board meeting.
The primary purpose of race-talk in America today is to allow elite whites to silence and shame non-elite whites. Thus, its not surprising that the people pushing it are . . . a bunch of elite whites.
Prompting OldSchoolConsrvtive to comment:
In fact the only time I think about race is when some whiny a$$hole plays the race card. Then instead of thinking about race logically I am filled with rage that the dumb bastard doesn't appreciate the opportunities given to all Americans. I g(e)t pissed that instead of choosing people like Thomas Sowell and Justice Thomas for role models the jacka$$es mimics some misogynistic racist rap singer.
And WillyPM to observe that the wedding of race-baiter Chris Matthews son should be added to the list of all white examples:
So, feel free to move about the coffee world of your choice without fear of being accosted before youve had a chance to finish your first cup of the day.
So just shut up and sing

Starbucks’ “race talk” has been silenced because Starbucks isn’t “black” enough...
That little trick did it for me with respect to Starbucks.
One of the lesser appreciated features of capitalism is that there is competition (no thanks to liberals).
I needed that extra little kick to go from slightly above average coffee (Starbucks) to a local vendor with tres superior product.
FUSBucks, and the horse yo’ mama rode in on.
The coffee jerks (I hate the word “barista”) should act like the not-quite bartenders that they aspire to be: don’t talk about politics and religion, just serve your customers.
Too bad that I can’t boycott Starphucks over this, I’m already boycotting them because:
a) they are a bunch of anti-gun Leftists; and
b) their coffee just plain sucks. Geez, if they didn’t burn it, it might actually be OK.
Screw Starphucks - but I’m glad that they are (temporarily) in STFU mode thanks to the pressure.
