#Woke Starbucks Closes for One Day To Undo All the Unconscious Bias Its Employees Have With a Single Seminar

From John Sexton at Hot Air: who knew you could eliminate unconscious bias with just a couple of speeches?

Sexton makes a very dangerous point, as far as Starbucks' business goes: It's not just that the homeless and junkies will use Starbucks' toilets now without fear of getting kicked out.

It's that Starbucks employees already have to throw out heroin needles they find on the bathroom floors, and now that this policy is in practice, they'll have to throw out even more.

One employee talked about being pricked with a needle he didn't talk about when he threw out the trash.

Now, obviously, this is bad for Starbucks' employees.

But I imagine customers' aren't going to love hearing stories like this either.

Now, Starbucks has already attempted to "clarify" its new policy, stating that drug use or sleeping on the premises wouldn't be permitted.

The Seattle-based retailer on Saturday had said it would allow all guests in its U.S. company-owned stores to use its cafes, including its restrooms, whether or not they make a purchase. That announcement, which attracted some support, also drew complaints that cafes wouldn't have enough seats for paying customers and would turn into homeless shelters and drug havens.

On Monday, Starbucks revealed more about the policy, telling The Wall Street Journal that employees now have detailed instructions on what to do if someone is behaving in a disruptive manner, such as smoking, using drugs or alcohol, using restrooms improperly or sleeping.

At issue, in essence, is whether Starbucks views itself as a business that caters to customers, or a quasi-public place generally welcome to all.

But no one openly shoots heroin or walks around with the needle out. They wait until they're alone in the bathroom.

Announcing that you'll let anyone use your bathrooms or chairs so long as they aren't sleeping or openly brandishing drug needles is surely a magnet for junkies.

Believe it or not, this isn't even the #Wokest story of the day about a shop.

A Portland, Ore., bakery caved to a disgruntled customer's allegations of racism and fired two employees after they wouldn’t serve a customer because the shop was closed.

Back to Eden Bakery sent multiple apologies and public statements admitting it’s racist because it refused to serve a black woman who entered the shop after hours and asked to buy a pastry even though the shop had closed.

The incident occurred in early May and is now circulating in the news, garnering a strong public response on Facebook and social media. A woman named only as "Lillian" entered the bakery at 9:06 p.m. after the shop had already closed, according to the bakeshop’s Facebook post about the event. Confusion arose because the shop was unusually busy for the late hour and there were still a few customers in line who the shop agreed to serve but who'd been informed the shop was officially closed. The lighted "Open" sign had been turned off.

After the bakeshop employees informed Lillian that they were officially closed and they could serve no more customers, Lillian video recorded the experience and claimed the bakery was racist because it served the two white women who had arrived at the shop earlier, but refused to serve her.

Uhhh, no they don't, Ace. I took a photo on a Wednesday morning -- 8 a.m. -- of a couple sitting on the inbound S.F. Muni platform, Civic Center station, openly shooting up, the guy into his leg and the woman into her arm. I assume it was heroin but YMMV.

In the f*cking open. Right there on the platform. Where people stand waiting to catch the train.

77 "Back to Eden" bakery in Portland deserves to go out of business, as do all moonbat cafes, bakeries and restaurants.

They are all, by their own admission and self-definition, totally racist. As white people, they have rampant unchangeable prejudice, which their whiteness prevents them from ever completely "unpacking."

If you subscribe to the leftist worldview as these people do, then you, as a white leftist, must necessarily commit social suicide, career suicide, business suicide, and (hopefully), eventually just plan ol' suicide.

If, on the other hand, you reject the leftist worldview, you are free to live and enjoy life as a fully realized human being.

84 This is so idiotic. Starbucks is screwing over their rank-and-file staff. It's the $9-an-hour hour employees who will bear the brunt of this. This training is designed to make corporate look good while deflecting responsibility for maintaining harmonious race relations at all times in all stores to the lowest paid employees who literally have to clean up the mess. Needles, feces, urine, vomit...They will be facing so many situations they should not have to, and God help them if they make a "wrong" split-second decision. Corporate can say, "Hey, we gave them special training but they STILL handled this situation like a racist, so we're firing them." Obnoxious race-baiters know the beleaguered workers will not be backed up by upper mgmt. If I was a worker in one of their stores I'd bail. F*ck that.

111 In a story even worse than the Portland racism-bakery incident:

W Kamau Bell, one of their smug black pundits who survives on accusing white people of all being racists, walked into a cafe in Berkeley about a year ago and perceived out of the corner of his eye some kind of microaggression which triggered his black outrage. The white devil who committed the moicroagrressiong wasn't even aware the s/he had done it.

Anyway, W. Kamau Bell then wrote a big essay about this microaggression ,a nd named the cafe, which was "Elmwood Cafe."

Every white leftist then declared a permanent boycott against this cafe, whic also confessed its crimes as a sanctuary for whtieness.

Fast forward to May 2018: Elmwood Cafe declares bankruptcy and goes out of business.

Ha-HAAAAAAAAAAA!

A new owner has now bought the space and is re-opening it as a "new business." he will thrive, until a cappuccino grievance mongegr decided that it's time to destroy anohter groveling ally. Out of boredom.

RACISTS!
Posted by: JJTownsend1977


I have a brilliant solution for that problem:

Starbucks should institute areas of each cafe that are exclusively for black people only, where employees are completely forbidden from kicking anyone out for any reason. The other part of the cafe will be for the white hobos and addicts, which employees can kick out at will.

The two corporate managers in charge of these different spaces will be named Greg and Shawn. If anyone complains to a Starbuck low-level employee about the policy, the employee can then direct the customer to a video kiosk in each cafe where they can see and speak to the managers in a live video chat to address their concerns. The sign on the kiosks will read, "See Greg+Shawn!"

Sad thing about it is that you're screwing the co-stars on those shows who had nothing to do with Cosby's rape fantasies or Rosie's faux pas on Twitter.

346 "84 This is so idiotic. Starbucks is screwing over their rank-and-file staff. It's the $9-an-hour hour employees who will bear the brunt of this. This training is designed to make corporate look good while deflecting responsibility for maintaining harmonious race relations at all times in all stores to the lowest paid employees who literally have to clean up the mess. Needles, feces, urine, vomit...They will be facing so many situations they should not have to, and God help them if they make a "wrong" split-second decision. Corporate can say, "Hey, we gave them special training but they STILL handled this situation like a racist, so we're firing them." Obnoxious race-baiters know the beleaguered workers will not be backed up by upper mgmt. If I was a worker in one of their stores I'd bail. F*ck that.

361 15 On Monday, Starbucks revealed more about the policy, telling The Wall Street Journal that employees now have detailed instructions on what to do if someone is behaving in a disruptive manner, such as smoking, using
drugs or alcohol, using restrooms improperly or sleeping.

Probably "Call the cops". Which is how all this shit started in the first place.
_______________________

Exactly. What were those two black guys doing? They were sitting there without buying anything, and refusing to leave when politely asked to leave. IOW, they were trespassing, and the Starbucks manager had every right to call the cops to move them out.

If Starbucks executives had not been such giant p*ssies and so desperately afraid of being called raaaaaacist by some obvious jerks, there never would have been a problem. All they had to do was say "We are running a business in our cafes; they are not public rest stops. Our customers are welcome to use our facilities, but random members of the public are not free to use our cafe's as free public meeting places, for all the obvious reasons."

And we all know damn good and well that if the arrested Starbucks trespassers had been two white men, we never would have heard a peep about it.

397 The interesting things about this Roseanne kerfluffle, politically, is that first, remember that Roseanne was never a reliable or strong "conservative". She was more of a gadfly and a loose cannon, but she had no fixed political leanings. So, her fall is unfortunate, but it's not as if we lost anything we ever could count on.

On the other hand, she did have a large number of blue collar fans - the people who watched her then, and who were watching her now. THEY are the ones who are going to be pissed that the left has decided to take her out. So, the net result is that we have gained at least some allies, and lost nothing. On the other side, the left has gained nothing, and has lost some more working class white votes.

But then, out of the left (white) side of your mouth, occasionally interject with abusive and boorish insults, in a 1930s Brooklyn accent. ""Fashion is a form of ugliness so intolerable that we have to alter it every six months." "Shaddup you stinkin' meathead!" "America is the only country that went from barbarism to decadence without civilization in between." "Whassamatta you? Shut your dago mouth!" Back and forth, back and forth.
