If you’ve been awake any time during the past several days, you can’t have missed the news about Starbucks’s “Race Together” campaign, which is designed to precipitate a conversation on race between its employees and customers.
As the Washington Times reported:
“Race Together” has already started in Oakland, Los Angeles, St. Louis, New York and Chicago. Over 2,000 Starbucks partners have discussed racial issues at open forums, and CEO Howard Schultz is pushing for more.
Starbucks baristas were given the option as of Monday to give customers cups with “Race Together” on them….
[CEO Howard] Schultz said on the company’s website that the campaign, which is in partnership with USA Today, is not a solution to racial tensions within certain communities, “but it is an opportunity to begin to re-examine how we can create a more empathetic and inclusive society — one conversation at a time.”
That was then. This is now — and now the time for talking is over. At least the time for conversation is over. Schultz is the only one doing the talking, And what he has to say is that America is a racist country.
Appearing on CNBC with host Jim Cramer, Schultz parroted the same noxious propaganda served up by Al Sharpton and aided by President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder, which holds that blacks today are systematically subjected to a high degree of racism.
Schultz rattled off a number of cities where police action resulted in blacks being killed and concluded these events are evidence that blacks are experiencing the same level of racism that occurred many decades ago.
Let’s first look at the situation in the country today. Between Ferguson, [Mo.]; Madison, Wisconsin; New York; Cleveland; there obviously is, the country is being torn apart by racial injustice and a level of racism that we haven’t seen publicly for a very long time.
Schultz could have saved everyone a lot of trouble by scrapping the silly “Race Together” campaign before it got started and instead telling Americans who disgusting he finds them.
In the meantime, Dana Loesch made a video sending up the whole ludicrous campaign, which is well worth watching:
