Starbucks closes for ‘White Penance’ workshop after Philly blow up; ‘maybe NOW white people will see …’

Starbucks will close 8,000 coffee shops around the United States on May 29 to conduct “racial-bias” training for its employees in another capitulation to grievance-mongering race baiters.

The workshops follow social-media outrage after two black men were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks for refusing to leave when told by a manager of a longstanding company policy that they must buy something in order to use the restroom or loiter inside the shop.

That manager has since left the company, and Starbucks issued several groveling apologies even though loitering and trespassing on a private business are grounds for removal/arrest no matter what color you are.

“Closing our stores for racial bias training is just one step in a journey that requires dedication from every level of our company and partnerships in our local communities,” Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson said in a statement.

For the record, Starbucks did not hold similar sensitivity training when a loyal customer said she was bullied and harassed by a group of baristas for wearing a Trump t-shirt in June 2017.

Starbucks also did not hold any educational workshops when it decided to overlook unemployed military veterans in favor of hiring 10,000 refugees at its coffee shops around the country.

As is usually the case, when you give liberals an inch, they think they’re the Ruler. So Starbucks’ capitulation to race-baiting grievance mongers was met with sarcasm by liberals.

“Starbucks is taking away coffee for a day,” one person tweeted. “Maybe NOW white people will see that racism impacts them as well. #WhitePenance

The call for “White Penance” was slammed and mocked for its racist undertones.

One man tweeted sarcastically: “Starbucks should give free coffee to Africans and play Hip-Hop 24/7. Let’s enrich the hell out of Starbucks!”

One woman joked that Starbucks’ pandering instantly transformed her into a Dunkin Donuts customer. Note to Trump supporters: Dunkin Donuts supports President Trump’s wall.

“That day without Starbucks is forever seared in my memory,” Mo Mo tweeted. “I stood in line at Dunkin Donuts, clutching my coach wallet in my shaking hands.”

She continued: “He rang me up and asked for $2.50. I couldn’t believe my ears. ‘What sort of coffee costs less than five dollars?’ I thought and shuddered at the horror.”

One person asked why the nationwide Starbucks closings will only affect white people. Don’t Asians, Latinos, and blacks also drink coffee?

“Soo do black people not drink coffee?” one tweep wondered.

Finally, one woman summed up the sentiments of millions of Americans who ditched Starbucks a long time ago because of its overpriced coffee, daily serving of leftist politics, and stale sandwiches.

“Meh. I stopped going to Starbucks years ago,” Kim Priestap quipped. So did we, Kim. So did we.
