Critics are beginning to think that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is taking absurdity to a whole new level with his ill-fated “Race Together” campaign.
Starbucks is not only encouraging baristas to engage customers about race relations, but the company has also distributed a test on racial views — so much for a relaxing cup of joe.
Titled “Your Race Relations Reality Check,” the test consists of ten fill-in-the-blank questions about race and was included on the back page of Friday’s USA Today newspaper.
Social media users had a different take on the questionnaire, calling it the “Are You a Racist” test, with one user offering the best advice yet: “Starbucks, just stop.” Here’s a sampling of the responses as seen on Twitter.
