Race

Why are there No Starbucks in these Majority Black Cities?

I’m not a coffee drinker. In fact, I’ve only had one cup of coffee in my entire life. I was about ten years old. It was at my grandparents’ house during a family get together. There was a cup of coffee on the table. I picked it up and took a gulp. Big mistake. Somebody had put a cigarette out in it. I can still taste it.

y wife knows that if she wants to keep ice cream in the house she needs to buy coffee ice cream.

Even so, I know about Starbucks. They are everywhere . . . except it seems in many majority black cities and neighborhoods.

You are surely aware of the “Race Together” campaign sponsored by Starbucks. When I first heard it I wondered how it was going to work if people who were buying their overpriced caffeine fixes really wanted to talk about race. I’m sure the people standing in line and at the drive through would love to listen in on a 30-minute discussion as they’re checking their new Apple watches for the time. Sure they would.

It’s like people who ask how you’re doing. Do they really want to know? Not really.

Kareem Abdul Jabbar had this to say on the subject, but as we’ll see there’s the “rest of the story” that the mainstream media are not reporting…
