I saw a report on the evening news yesterday about the "incident" at Starbucks the other day. It said that the manager of the location where it took place no longer works for Starbucks. It didn't say if she'd been fired (it's probably a she) or if she quit before she could be doxxed by Black People Twitter.
There's a reason Starbucks didn't want to announce that she'd been fired, and probably wouldn't have fired her anyway: They don't want people to think that Starbucks is the kind of place that would fire a manager just for having two black guys arrested for no apparent reason.
There's a group of elderly black guys who are always at the McDonald's across the street from the warehouse. The only reason they wouldn't be there is if that location is closed at night, which, I would never go in that neighborhood at night to find out. I'm not sure if they buy anything or not, but they definitely don't buy enough to justify the amount of time they spend there.
The last thing Starbucks needs is to become something along the lines of the McDonald's across the street from my job. They don't even want too many paying black people in there. That's why there aren't any Starbucks in the hood—as if people in the hood don't drink coffee.
[Sidebar: Does Magic Johnson own any Starbucks? If so, he needs to address this issue, and also his gross son.]
I'm not sure what purpose it will serve, but I'm glad to see that black people are talking about boycotting Starbucks. Not only does Starbucks deserve to be put out of business (IMHO), but this protest will be especially effective because it doesn't require you to do anything other than pay $4 for some damn coffee. As Chelsea Manning would say, we got this! No Boutros.
