Starbucks "fights' racism..........

Post by kbot » 05-29-2018 07:52 PM

So, we've all head the stories now about Starbucks shutting down to engage their employees in forced behavior modification, er "education" on racism.

Makes this news all the more interesting......


MLK Niece to Starbucks: Fight Racism by Ending Planned Parenthood Funding

Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece has a new message for Starbucks on how to combat racial bias.
If the coffee chain really wants to combat racism it will stop donating money to Planned Parenthood, Alveda King argued in a Tuesday op-ed published by the Washington Examiner.

The coffee-shop chain is under fire after two 23-year-old black men were arrested for “trespassing” as they sat without ordering anything and waited for their business partner at a Philadelphia-area Starbucks. Critics accused the company of racism and said white customers would not have been arrested. Starbucks subsequently issued several new policies aimed at promoting inclusivity and making people feel safe in its spaces, including a day set aside to give staff anti-bias training.
“It’s time for corporations like Starbucks that claim to care about “racial-bias” to stop funding Planned Parenthood’s house of horrors, which has taken precious lives away from minority communities and from society at large,” King wrote.
She explained that the abortion industry targets minorities, including black women.
“I often say that abortion is the civil rights issue of our time,” the director of Civil Rights for the Unborn wrote. “Abortion mills like Planned Parenthood didn’t become prevalent in the lives of pregnant African-American women by happenstance. Planned Parenthood’s business model was specifically engineered to target them.”

The nation’s largest abortion provider performed 321,384 abortions in the year that ended in September 2016, according to its annual report. About 79 percent of its surgical facilities were near minority neighborhoods in 2012, pro-life activists reported.

“Starbucks, if you’re really serious about eliminating racism, you will acknowledge that black people, and indeed all human beings, are of one blood and one human race, born and unborn. Racism and abortion are crimes against humanity,” King concluded.

Time To Get SUPER Serious About Eliminating Racism

Post by Riddick » 05-30-2018 12:51 AM

Like behavior modification er, education is gonna change basic human nature

If everyone is racist, how can the fight against racism ever come to a close?

It's not a hopeless cause: In fact there IS a simple solution. Think about it.... .

I don't know whether any forced behavior modification techniques will work - I agree with some who have said that this is just a PR stunt by Starbucks to repair a dimmed brand and this is corporate America's way of punishing everyone they employ because of the bad behavior of some employees in the city of brotherly love.

Concerning the allegations of Starbucks funding PP - now THAT is a whole other can o' worms, especially if the public grasps on to the eugenics aspects of PP from the organization's origins, and the allegations that PP intentionally sited their clinics in poorer urban areas with, perhaps, the goal of shrinking the black population.

Does Starbucks want to be associated with THAT image???????

Racism rises in direct correlation to the human population

If the goal is zero racism, there's only one sure way to do it

Depopulation shouldn't be limited to the unborn.

"Mother Nature" may provide her own methods for depopulation - erupting volcano in Hawaii, caverns opening-up in Antarctica, annual rites of super-storms.........

I read an article today about a tabletop disaster drill which involved some current members of Congress. I've been involved in some tabletop drills over the years, but nothing this elaborate. THIS is scary......... (and plausible)

This mock pandemic killed 150 million people. Next time it might not be a drill.


A novel virus, moderately contagious and moderately lethal, has surfaced and is spreading rapidly around the globe. Outbreaks first appear in Frankfurt, Germany, and Caracas, Venezuela. The virus is transmitted person-to-person, primarily by coughing. There are no effective antivirals or vaccines. U.S. troops stationed abroad are infected. Now the first case to reach the United States had been identified on a small college campus in Massachusetts.

So began a recent day-long exercise hosted by the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. The simulation mixed details of past disasters with fictional elements to force government officials and experts to make the kinds of key decisions they could face in a real pandemic.

It was a tense day. The exercise was inspired in part by the troubled response to the Ebola epidemic of 2014, and everyone involved was acutely aware of the very real and ongoing Ebola outbreak spreading in Congo.

In the simulation, a bipartisan group of current and former high-ranking U.S. government officials played a team of presidential advisers faced with a host of real-world policy, political and ethical dilemmas. The actors included former Senate majority leader Tom Daschle (D-S.D.), who played the Senate majority leader, and Rep. Susan Brooks (R-Ind.), who played herself. They had to react as the outbreak unfolded according to a script provided by Johns Hopkins, with no advance knowledge about how the mock disaster would play out.

I think this last crises with Starbucks was that the homeless(all colors of skin) where moving in in them,using the bathrooms, for showers, lodging , whatever, more than likely said no camping inside, after hours. So of course the "racist" thing was being tossed around.

Starbucks exits, I've been in one once I have no ya or nay thing about them, I'm only guessing that they are liberal owned.

It seems to me that they have spent a lot of time in training(this is not the 1st training.) They are not in a winning position any way you look at it, trying to please every one in this current environment is "Mission Impossible" . Interesting to watch......... :D

Uh-Oh..........Starbucks..........Wants homeless to stay dirty...!......?... :?



Starbucks Quietly Walks Back "Homeless Shelter" Bathroom Policy In New "Color Brave" Employee Manual

Starbucks has quietly walked back their "all inclusive" bathroom policy, perhaps after realizing that their employees and customers alike weren't responding well to the prospect of vagrants using their stores as a homeless shelter.


As part of their new "Third Place Policy" which the company shuttered 8,000 stores to pound into employees heads on Tuesday, Starbucks says "We want our stores to be the third place, a warm and welcoming environment where customers can gather and connect. Any customer is welcome to use Starbucks spaces, including our restrooms, cafes and patios, regardless of whether they make a purchase."

Ok - so far so good for homeless people looking to catch some free air conditioning this summer or simply drop that massive cabbage dump that's been brewing. 

But wait - what's this? Starbucks' new Third Place Policy also reads: 

When using a Starbucks space, we respectfully request that customers behave in a manner that maintains a warm and welcoming environment by:

Using spaces as intended

Being considerate of others

Communicating with respect

Acting responsibly

Uh oh, this isn't looking good for those looking to take a sink-bath while breathing in freshly brewed coffee...

On occasion, the circumstances of a customer’s disruptive behavior may make it necessary to prohibit that customer from returning to our stores.

The Rest of the Story

"Uncomfortable" Starbucks Employees Respond To Becoming "World's Biggest Public Toilet"


Starbucks employees are bristling after being forced to sit through an entire day of training on racial bias on Tuesday, following an April incident in which a Philadelphia manager called the police on a pair of black men who were sitting in the store without having purchased anything, which sparked a nationwide protest and culminated with Starbucks becoming "America's largest public toilet."

I wondered how Starbucks survived, they don't need customers.......They are "State" approved, along with the Media, and eventually where you shop, what you buy, what kind of health care or lack of you get. Just like the old USSR. Of course your income will be only what is "allowed" you , going over will be punished. If you get old they can make cookies out of you, "waste not, want not". What a great world?! RIGHT!? :shock:


Starbucks Gets Millions From US Govt, Picks Soros Funded Group To Lead Anti-Bias Training

When private companies close thousands of stores for an afternoon to conduct anti-bias training it usually doesn’t affect American taxpayers, but in Starbucks’ case it does. In addition to approximately $400,000 in U.S. government contracts, the global coffeehouse chain has received millions of dollars from Uncle Sam for a coffee yield improvement project in Colombia, records uncovered by Judicial Watch show. Additionally, the anti-bias curriculum that was recently forced upon 175,000 employees was designed by a nonprofit that’s largely funded by leftwing billionaire George Soros. The group’s (Perception Institute) leadership has close ties to Democratic party politics, including Planed Parenthood and the Obama administration, Judicial Watch’s investigation found.

The special training was called to order after a manager at a Philadelphia Starbucks called police on two black men who sat in the store without buying anything. The men were eventually arrested for trespassing and the race card was quickly played. Starbucks responded by closing 8,000 stores in the U.S. for four hours “to come together for a conversation and learning session on racial bias.” The goal, according to the company, was to take a foundational step in renewing Starbucks as a place where all people feel welcome. “Starbucks partners shared life experiences, heard from others, listened to experts on bias and racial anxiety, reflecting on the realities of bias in our society and talking about how all of us can work together to create public spaces where everyone feels like they belong,” the company wrote in a statement. A national newspaper described it as a “dramatic move toward racial reconciliation.”

At the helm of this so-called racial reconciliation was the Perception Institute, which lists Soros’ Open Society Foundation among its major supporters. The group’s executive director, Alexis McGill-Johnson, co-founded the Democrat marketing firm Brand Architects and is a former board chair for Planned Parenthood. She was also the political director for Russell Simmons’ Hip-Hop Summit Action Network and executive director of Citizen Change, a nonprofit founded by rapper Sean “Diddy” Combs. Perception Institute’s director of research, Rachel Godsil, was “the convener for the Obama campaign’s Urban and Metropolitan Policy Committee” and an advisor to Obama’s Housing and Urban Development (HUD) transition team. New York Mayor Bill de Blasio appointed Godsil chair of the city’s Rent Guidelines Board. Years ago, Judicial Watch obtained documents exposing de Blasio’s dark past as an active supporter of a brutal communist regime well known as one of Latin America’s worst human rights abusers.
