Starbuck’s Begins It’s Slide To Failure

Starbuck's CEO Howard Schultz The Real Revo – by Jim22

Politico reports: “Starbucks wants its baristas to talk about race in America”

Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is taking on another fraught political debate, with his company launching a new initiative this week to get employees to discuss with customers the state of race relations in the United States.

“We at Starbucks should be willing to discuss these issues in America,” Schultz said in a company statement released Monday announcing its “Race Together” campaign.”

Great. The company that is named for the First Mate on a whaling ship in the book Moby Dick has decided to ask its ‘Baristas’, otherwise known as coffee sellers, to propagandize their customers.

Many of these ‘Baristas’ are young and full of themselves and their importance. Like many young people they want to change the world. Let me say a couple things:

First, you can’t change the world with talk; especially obnoxious talk. Change requires action.

Second, You will soon see business decline. Places like Dunkin’ Donuts will see increased business… unless they also become holier than thou smartypants.

  1. Lets get the healing started. It’ll go something like this: “Hello and welcome my violent, shiftless and unemployed negros! Would you like a free handout? So what do you think about those…..crackas? Everybody hates a cracka…true dat…true dat. You feel me dog?”
