Liberal Groups Set Sites on Taking Down Starbucks After Arrest of Black Customers in Store

After a Starbucks workers called the police to deal with a two people loitering in their store, liberals are paralyzed: Do we choose Starbucks, or do we pretend that this incident was because of anti-black racism?

There are two versions of this story. One, that Starbucks workers called the police to remove two peaceful customers because Starbucks doesn’t want black men hanging out in their store. Two, that Starbucks asked the police for assistance when two black men refused to leave after hours of waiting, were agitated when they were told the bathroom is for workers only, and were then removed by a black police officer who was following the wishes of the private coffee shop.

Two men were filmed in a branch in Philadephia being removed by police officers, and videos of the incident sparked off #BoycottStarbucks on the assumption that Starbucks is indeed racist.

Now, liberals are frozen with indecision. Do they take the side of the mob crying racism, or do they take the side of their beloved, pro-gay, pro-Hillary, pro-refugee Starbucks?

Aftermath, Starbucks Responds

When the videos spread, one of the most popular tweets encouraged coffee drinkers to switch to his own coffee shop, not because of their loitering policies, but because it’s run by black people.

Within two days of the incident, Starbucks posted this response:

“We apologize to the two individuals and our customers and are disappointed this led to an arrest. We take these matters seriously and clearly have more work to do when it comes to how we handle incidents in our stores. We are reviewing our policies and will continue to engage with the community and the police department to try to ensure these types of situations never happen in any of our stores.”

Late on Saturday night, current Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson apologized and promised that there would be a more thorough investigation of the incident.

That’s a lot of “sorrys” and a lot of promises to be better. So what will happen to Money in Starbucks?

Police Commissioner Responds, Gives Details

So what about an official response from someone who isn’t involved with the coffee biz?

According to local Police Commissioner Richard Ross — who is himself “an African-American man,” the two police officers “did absolutely nothing wrong” and he defended the arrests. Giving a better timeline, Ross said that the store workers called 911 and reported a disturbance as well as trespassing.

The officers arrived, and the staff informed them that there were two men who had repeatedly refused to leave after being denied the use of the worker bathroom when workers asked them several times to vacate.

When the officers asked the men to leave and they refuse, that’s when it turned into a handcuff situation.

Ross said:

“If you think about it logically, that if a business calls and they say that someone is here that I no longer wish to be in my business, they [the officers] now have a legal obligation to carry out their duties. And they did just that…They were professional in all their dealings with these gentlemen, and instead they got the opposite back.”

The two men were later released, and Starbucks is not interested in prosecuting them.

Starbucks Exec On Violence Against Whites

Former CEO and current Special Projects Director gave a presentation that was later quoted on the official Starbucks Twitter account. Howard Schultz gave a talk in August 2017 after the violence in Charlottesville, saying that violence against “people who are not white” is unjustified.

Uh what? When people tweeted back asking about the wording, asking if it was an unfortunate slip of the tongue, but the official account was not willing to commit to a clear answer. When asked, Starbucks said “We do not tolerate discrimination against anyone. We believe in kindness, respect and dignity for everyone.”

Of course, they never clarified how they feel about violence, only discrimination.

Don’t Want Starbucks? Try Black Rifle!

Last year, Clinton-supporting Howard Schultz announced to cheering liberals that the company would aim to hire on 10,000 “refugees” over the next five years in direct response to Donald Trump’s executive order that put a termporary ban on accepting refugees from seven countries with ties to Islamic terrorism. The ban wasn’t about religion, or refugees, it was about countries that required better travel betting.

After Schultz made his announcement, Black Rifle Coffee announced that they would hire 10,000 veterans.

Of course, it’s jokey — Black Rifle is a small roaster — but since its owner is a veteran himself, the company definitely has a theme going on. In the original press release, they did include a link to apply with a resume. According to Evan Hafer, owner of Black Rifle:

“I started Black Rifle Coffee Company to provide a high-quality, roast-to-order, coffee to the pro 2A and veteran communities. Between deployments to Iraq and Afghanistan, I was working to refine both my coffee roasting skills and my firearms skills.”

Sounds like he worked on his marketing too. Brilliant strategy. Starbucks coffee isn’t even that great because attempting to make coffee taste the same all over the world is impossible without over processing it. Try Black Rifle instead.
