Starbucks snatching commenters edges left and right!!! While I’m still baffled but this situation, I wish more company would take better course of actions when those things happen.

These whites are more angry about not getting a coffee than racism smh
Because it wasnt racism.
It’s still a fucking double standard and stupid reason to call the police and waste everyone’s time. There was no good reason to arrested those black men for asking to use the restroom while waiting for an associate at Starbucks. They were going to buy something when the person arrived. Like normal people do. It was an overreaction by the manager and police. White people do the same shit at Starbucks all the time but never asked to leave by management.
You’re one to talk about double standards. You literally call for and defend double standards. And no its not a double standard, nobody is allowed to stay inside if they dont buy stuff.
“White people…blahblah… never get asked to leave…blah blah” bullshit. Ive seen it happen with my own two eyes. Ive kicked white people out of my restaurants for loitering. Guess what, thats what its called. You can probably find videos of it if you look for it (and i s2g if you google something like “white person kicked out of starbucks” and expect to get results, its proof youre beyond my help).
For 2 minutes? 2 minutes is not long enough to warrant a police call. I’ve been in line and in the restroom way longer than that many times I guess I deserved to be thrown out in cuffs lol. Starbucks CEO even stated that the black men didn’t commit any serious violation so please stop justifying your own racial bias towards black people. Besides I clicked those videos you want me to look at and the white people in the videos were kicked out for completely different reasons. Most of those white people were kicked out due to spouting racism and causing disruptions inside the establishment. Not loitering.
Fun fact, these guys were kicked out for making a scene too if you read the report.
TBH I am perfectly fine with them shutting down Starbucks for a day to try to resolve systematic racial issues, and I hope it succeeds. I will just make my coffee at home that morning. I won’t even bring my business elsewhere that morning to show my support for them closing for a day to do this.
Full disclosure: I am white and drink Starbucks nearly every day, and pay with a Starbucks Fox Card. 🦊
