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.
‘Only the coffee is black’: Shocking, ironic photo
of Starbucks’ 19 execs pushing racial chats
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.

[email protected] @DLoesch @Starbucks wow, I am pretty sure that counting the color of my friends is racist.

@hellixmarcelius @DLoesch @Starbucks remember something about judging ppl by content of character not color of skin. Not sure who said it.

@hellixmarcelius @consmover @DLoesch @Starbucks a sheeple test, designed by sheeple, given to sheeple, ignored by thinking individuals.

@hellixmarcelius @Godwetrust777 @DLoesch @Starbucks Why does this feel like something from the 50’s? America moved on. Then came Obama.
