    I got a perfect score on Starbucks “race relations” test!

    As a white Jew, I bet I have experienced more racism than most non-whites. But, I don’t go on whining about it, claiming to be a victim.

    I just realize that some people are a-holes, and I move on.

    “My parents had __ friends of a different race.” My parents are Irish, they had Scottish friends, does that count?

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Do Irish and Scots even regard each other as human?

      • Frau Katze

        I don’t think people care liked they used to. Mass defection from Christianity leaves them with no particular differences. I get the accents mixed up.

          To me, they all sound Australian, which sounds English.

        My grandfather was Irish and my grandmother a Scot. I think there was alcohol involved.

    • Frances

      Definitely. Think Rangers and Celtics.

  • Is Starbucks pulling a Producers here? Like they’ve found a way to make a profit if they can just figure out how to drive themselves into bankruptcy?

    If one were to extrapolate the milieu found in the finest French restaurants to Starbucks, shouldn’t over half the baristas and roasters, etc, call places like Italy, Brazil, Ethiopia, East Africa, Columbia, etc, home?

    White people should order short blacks at Starbucks.

    • Drunk_by_Noon

      Wouldn’t that be a “Pygmy”?

  • DMB

    Starbucks is obsessed with race while Burger King obsessed with homosexuality.

    Such a “campaign ” is indeed most presumptuous! pre·sump·tu·ous
    (of a person or their behavior) failing to observe the limits of what is permitted or appropriate.

    Blah, blah, blah……………

    How racist is it of them that there are no Starbucks stores in majority black areas?
