Today is the day Starbucks closes over 8000 stores for a Virtue Signaling Caffeine-Free Day of Atonement and racial healing.
All because back in April some racist manager attempted to follow Starbucks racist store policy and threw a couple of guys (black, which is the only relevant fact) out of the store because they didnt buy anything.
In April, a Starbucks manager in Philadelphia called the police when two young African-American men refused to leave his store for loitering. When the pair still refused to leave, they were arrested, setting off a national outcry.
Starbucks Chairman Howard Schultz quickly stepped into the fracas. Sitting down with the affected gentlemen, Schultz negotiated a deal which satisfied all parties. Part of the concessions that Starbucks made was to change store policies to prevent future racially-charged incidents.
Moving forward, Starbucks restrooms will be available to all patrons, irrespective of whether theyre paying customers. InvestorPlace
Oh, plus the chain agreed to hold a special training day to teach baristas not to be racist pigs.
Of course, Starbucks has already reneged (can I say that?) on their new policy of opening its bathrooms to everyone.
Theyve since clarified the pathetic, knee-jerk policy they implemented in response to the bad publicity. After it became apparent that they had inadvertently turned their places of business into homeless shelters filled with needles, drug baggies and blood all over the walls they established some additional guidelines to further explain their new open borders policy. Or as Rush explained:
All of two days of human debris swarming Starbucks stores, and they had to immediately reinstitute the old policy that led to charges they were racist. Im sorry, I just find it humorous. Very, very teachable moment. They wont learn anything from it, but the rest of us certainly can use it as a teachable moment.
So if you work at Starbucks, have a good day. My advice, having survived many corporate training sessions, is to sit up straight, look as if you are truly concerned and committed to implementing whatever change in behavior the facilitator is suggesting you embrace. Because remember: its not only right for the company, but its the right thing to do! As a human being.
DO NOT act as if youre only there because theres a gun to your head.
Follow my suggestions and at the end of the session youll get a free cup of coffee, a gold star and maybe even an attaboy! from the lead facilitator.
Oh yeah, baby! We do Racism Right.

Another multi-million dollar shakedown in progress. Eric Holder is the main beneficiary. Now follow the money.....midterms are at hand. Starbucks gets to make a big fat political donation!! Amazing!
Implicit or unconscious bias is a Kafkaesque excuse for thought control before and after the fact. You are guilty no matter what.
What can you expect from a business whose logo is a nubile lass that pulls her legs open and up .
After looking up Kafka, I find your comment very interesting.
Maybe not so amazing: Starbucks would probably have donated anyway.
Do I care what Starbucks does? Answer: Absolutely NOT!
They could close 16,000 stores instead of 8000 and I still wouldn’t care. Frequenters are suckers paying for the over priced swill.
I’m suggesting every bum go and hang out in Starbucks. Take your grocery carts with you.
Any open 24 hours?
Turns out you’re right. Oh, what a nasty girl.
Doubt IHOP closes down for sensitivity training for this little white boy. http://www.kxan.com/news/national-news/family-says-ihop-discriminated-against-son-born-without-arms/1205974395
If a bum wears a MAGA hat or t shirt will he be treated nicely? What if I were to wear a Trump shirt to Starbucks. Im in Texas so it would probably be ok. I encourage freepers in lib towns to give it a try.
I have been subjected to one of those corporate re-education camp training sessions.
It has made me the wonderful person I am today—not!
btw what is the turnover of the average Starbucks employee—six months?
This is a sick joke from a pathetic excuse for a corporation.
