"Just when I thought you couldn't possibly be any dumber, you go and do something like this... and totally redeem yourself!"

The news of Hardee's considering moving its national headquarters out of 49 percent black St. Louis was thankfully offset with the absolutely positive, riveting, and glorious announcement Starbucks is going to open up a store in 70 percent black Ferguson!

Cue up the marching band and order up a few tons of confetti for the ticker-tape parade!
Starbucks is coming to 70 percent black Ferguson! "Community Outreach" is now a corporate strategy for goodwill in Black-Run America (BRA), with producing profits no longer a concern...

Losing the national headquarters of a Fortune 500 company means absolutely nothing when a small suburb of St. Louis is going to get a Starbucks!

Even though corporate Starbucks locations don't accept EBT/Food stamps, the store in Ferguson could represent a prototype in "community outreach" to a demographic completely alien from the traditional business model the coffee giant built its brand on. [Howard Schultz: Starbucks to open Ferguson store, Fortune, 4-22-15]:
Starbucks baristas may not be writing “Race Together” on customers’ coffee cups anymore, but CEO Howard Schultz certainly isn’t done talking about the nation’s touchiest topic. 
On Tuesday, Schultz talked about his company’s efforts to address racial tension and announced that his coffee shop chain will open a location in Ferguson, Mo. as a “way to create employment.” Protestors clashed with police officers in the St. Louis suburb this summer, after the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown, an unarmed black man, by a white cop. 
Starbucks has locations in nearby Jennings and Florissant, Mo., and six stores in Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, but none in Ferguson. 

Schultz tucked the Ferguson store news into comments he made on stage at an event hosted by NationSwell, a digital media company focused on American innovation and renewal. Schultz’s appearance at the event focused on his company’s ongoing efforts to combat racism and inequality in the United States, its education benefits for workers, andits recent commitment to hire military veterans and so-called opportunity youths, generally described as unemployed 16 to 24-year olds who have not followed a traditional education path.
After his on-stage interview, Schultz told Fortune that there was no specific timeline for the opening of a Ferguson store, and he declined to provide more information about plans for the location there. A Starbucks spokesperson did not provide an opening date but said that the Ferguson store is “part of our plan to build more stores in urban neighborhoods.” 
Whenever Starbucks ultimately open its store in Ferguson, a city that’s 70% black, the location will counter the heavy concentration of Starbucks locations in predominantly white neighborhoods. By crunching Census figures and a dataset of 11,500 Starbucks locations in the United States as of August 2014,Quartz determined that the density of Starbucks stores increases along with the whiteness of census tracts. 
On Tuesday, Schultz emphasized his belief that race relations is not too sensitive an issue for his company to tackle. Schultz has never shied away from using his platform as CEO of a Fortune 500 company to speak out on controversial political and social subjects. In 2013, he led a petition-based push urging Washington politicians to end the federal government shutdown. That year, he also wrote an open letter asking gun owners to refrain from bringing their firearms into stores. 
Fortune reported in August that residents of St. Louis area, which includes Ferguson, have not felt the economic recovery equally. The unemployment rate for African Americans in the county of St. Louis City was 26% in 2012, according to the Census Department’s latest available stats. For white Americans, the unemployment rate was 6.2%.Employment figures from the fall of 2014 show that in Missouri, black unemployment was 15.7%; for whites it was 4.5%.
Losing Hardee's corporate headquarters was news thankfully softened by the outrageously positive announcement 70 percent black Ferguson is getting a Starbucks!

A Starbucks!

There's no doubt Starbucks is preparing to start a 501c3 as a way to offset the tremendous losses associated with opening franchises in heavily black areas, which has never been part of the corporations strategy or business model for growth.

But in Black-Run America (BRA), few actions such as opening a franchise in an increasingly non-white city will garner social justice points as Starbucks investing in 70 percent black Ferguson.

Trading Hardee's corporate headquarters in downtown St. Louis for a lone suburban Starbucks franchise in 70 percent black Ferguson is an absolute victory for metropolitan St. Louis!

I wonder if this will boost local property values in the same way proximity to a Starbucks increases home values in a white neighborhood.

And let's not be cynical about this well-intentioned attempt to meet the needs of the Ferguson demographic. A few simple menu changes and drink additions such as Kool-Aid and "Purple Drank"and this franchise opportunity could go huge in the many fine but under-served black neighborhoods across America.

I am confident that this Afro-bucks location will be a hideous mess. A source of regular beatings, theft, rudeness, vulgarity, rape, food poisoning and probably murder within the first quarter. "The community" could eventually sue the company for contributing to its diabetes and blood pressure problems.

Schwartz will eventually learn that the negro as barista is not the docile, domesticated creature he is accustomed to employing. No negro will be uttering courtesies and inquiring whether you want skim milk with your drink. The obese negress with her weave on crooked will be telling the customer "you get out my face or I'ma beat yo ass".

The experiment will certainly give PK a few stories before it's burned to the ground or turned into a community center for opportunity youth. Opportunity youth, the left and their language are just so destructive. Truth is just a forbidden topic for them

A business selling overpriced goods and that doesn't accept EBT cards to buy said goods is going to open in a majority black area? Obviously, this is an exercise in moral preening for the Starbucks CEO. The story makes national headlines, the CEO gets patted on his back by his liberal elite white friends, and then after 6 months when the store does no business and gets robbed blind by both its "opportunity youth" employees and pseudo-customers, it quietly closes with the news reported in a buried blurb in a local newspaper. All the low information citizens out there will only remember the overhyped story of the store's opening, and they'll imagine the store is out there still, a thriving business hiring local aspiring astrophysicists and classical pianists.

Agreed Festus. They can just skip the coffee altogether. That is more of a morning drink for those headed to work. What will the store's hours be, 12pm to 3am? Staffed by highly competent locals? Starbucks has officially lost it.

Starbucks in a black area? LOL. Someone will be selling weed and other drugs from under the counter in no time or out the back door.
In my town, we've had a few businesses in black areas shut down as public nuisances for drug dealing and for all the violent criminal activity at their locations.
But all we'll see about the Ferguson Starbucks is video of all the precious black customers lined up outside and it will be crowed over as a rousing success.....until the truth comes out.
Yeah, locals will hear about it and be in the know but the closing won't be trumpeted all over the place in the news. Starbucks will just close up shop and quietly fade away.
We'll be reading the truth of what happened here on SBPDL though.
I look forward to reading that article and laughing.

I guess old Shylock decided to put his money where his mouth is.... or rather the money of his shareholders where his mouth is.

Really it's a win for him. Figure it costs very little to open a store anywhere, much less in an area where property value is next to nothing. Hire a bunch of illiterate apes, who cares? What's the most they can steal in a day, a couple hundred bucks from the till? So for a total cost of maybe 100K into the store and another 200K a year in shrinkage and wages all the DWLs, SJWs, hipsters, and country club liberals will feel even better about buying 6$ lattes in their lily white neighborhoods. It's cheap advertising to his real customers. He couldn't have done a nationwide ad campaign for a few hundred large and he will be getting NATIONAL exposure for this move.

I really hope someone remembers in a year or two to do a followup on this and the yoga studio though.

Schvartze...'scuse ME...Schwartz has created a win-win for his Libtard,sniveling,showboating self and his ridiculous but profitable,P.T Barnum inspired whatchamacallit.
How a win-win? you may ask,especially for the company, when operating losses and general dysfunction are the easily predictable results of this smelly, grandstanding PR play.
The Fergadishu store opens under its very own corporate identity, but as a wholly owned subsidiary to the parent corporation.
Then,after a while,it's intentionally flown into the ground at 400 mph when its very existence becomes untenable due to you-know-what...with ZERO media coverage,counting on "useful idiot" short memory spans.
Not to worry.
The spectacular losses run up by da noo sto, after The Bean Counters and Tax Wizards get through processing them, will roll to the parent company AND REDUCE ITS OVERALL TAX LIABILITY, very likely with multiple credits because of da jobz an da inVESSmint in da Opatoonatee,an awl.

Fergadishu will still remain a replicant Soweto and national embarrassment,as intended.
Mourn your lost Republic.

" combat racism and inequality ".
This is a delusional DWL idea that has flunked the test of time.

There's clearly severe genetic inequality; therefore, the only way to reduce racial inequalities is to practice racial discrimination against groups doing better. In other words, society has to be immorally hostile against Whites to satisfy this outdated leftist ideal.

Probably, a very high percentage of Tarbucks White customers are lawyers, government employees, and companies that are gov't puppets, so it's not surprising that Schultz acts like such a DWL with regard to blacks who are the Left's lucrative political coca crop.

There is no salvation in Starbucks. Blacks may very well need a solution but it isn't in Starbucks.

Black have an employment problem. They are unemployed at about double the white rate - and it's getting worse.

As I remember, some of new automotive robots replaced 26 humans. A lot of those humans were blacks. Union members who had good wages and good medical plans. Gone.

Even if those blacks got hired as baristas it wouldn't be the same. How many people are working in a Starbucks? - three? And blacks are not particularly good at public contact jobs. When given the choice many people will avoid the black counter person and wait for white person.

I like Starbucks- maybe because I never go there. I have a large complicated espresso machine. It is in fact a Starbucks branded machine from an Italian manufacturer. I generally use Starbucks beans. There's nothing wrong with Starbucks in terms of coffee. But be realistic. Starbucks is a yippie fad. Rich white folks started lining up for a Starbucks cappuccino. It's just coffee. Starbucks is a fad. If they annoy their white white customers they will go elsewhere.

Down the hill there is a Starbucks but there are two other espresso shops directly across the street. If Starbucks hires surly black people I can go to Peets. A lot of people think their coffee is better anyway.


Gwoobus Harmon said...

As someone with relative clout in the hospitality business (not coffee) I have written about the business model of chain outlets, be they restaurants, hotels, or something mundane, prolific, and high margin like coffee shops. They operate much in the same manner, have the same controllable costs, and compete for purchasers of goods and services in much the same way.

Once a company surpasses 50 total retail outlets for their wares/widgets/products, regardless of distribution and production networks, they have graduated beyond sales and have at that point become primarily invested in real estate. This, the real estate holdings, is where their balance sheet tells the story of the company's long term performance prospects. Real Estate is both where their liabilities and assets are primarily tied up once they've reached a certain size (multiple millions) easily eclipsing operational costs.

Generally the difference between a successful restaurant/hotel/hospitality chain has little to do with their operational margins, it has to do everything with their skill in leveraging of assets vs. liabilities.

In short, the companies that are "best" don't necessarily deliver the best product or operate with better margins ---- they manage their real estate incredibly well. The companies that make errors in siting location end up overleveraged, and never make up enough revenue in sales to overcome the debt from expansions that do not ever live up to performing asset.

Starbucks has always been a company that "gets it right." You better believe that it has *everything to do with* racial demographics, education levels, traffic patterns, and income bracket thresholds within a given zip code. I promise you that is the criteria whether they vocalize it or not. Poor blacks receiving EBT and section 8 vouchers are not going to support in volume high priced coffees delivered in a pretentious atmosphere with wi-fi. Only high wage, college educated whites with laptops buy such things with regularity.

Maybe they see such a location as a worthy investment for political points, easily offset by their performing locations? Hopefully they make tons of such tactical errors, drink their own koolaid, and their egalitarianism gets the best of them when they file for chapter 11 a decade from now, paying out unemployment compensation to thousands of Shaniquas, holding many boarded up, graffitied, and worthless resale value outlets in East St. Louis, Detroit, Camden, Newark, Baltimore, Jackson, and Memphis with the YKW CEO in charge of tabulating and dispersing the shekels wondering what went wrong.

Since we’re on the topic of Ferguson, I was logged onto Yahoo yesterday and saw another liberal horsheshit propaganda article! I’ll ask you all a question:

If you had a choice to go anywhere for Spring Break (especially as a College student) where would you go to party?

Cancun? (I went there for mine in College), Florida, Miami Beach? Costa Rica? Cabo San Lucas? Any of these destinations you’re guaranteed to drink and party til break is over but guess where 200 moron College students decided to spend their spring break this year? If you guessed “FERGUSON” for $500, you are a winner!!

I watched the short clip of the student’s testimonies (the headline is ‘College students seek out alternative spring break in Ferguson, Missouri’) and trust me, you couldn’t find more brainwashed idiots then these poor kids. I got a chance to see the “shrine” in the middle of the street they had for St. Swisher. It was a bunch of flowers and scrap paper in the middle of the road, I swear to you it looked like litter. It would have been wonderful for a car to just run it all over and watch everything fly in the air .

These mindless idiots walked around and told us their sad stories about how the community and “St. Swisher could have been their brother” and it was an eye opener talking about the “struggle” that Ferguson has to go through. Total waste of money, total waste of time, they were lucky they weren’t violated by the local populace or they would have experienced some of the “rich diversity” first hand.

I'd love to hear the menu pronounced in ebonics :)

Seriously though, what is the poverty rate in fergustan now?

It really seems disingenuous of tarbucks to be offering 5 dollar coffees to those that can barely afford to feed themselves, whose housing is provided by section ape.

Will tarbucks accept EBT cards?

Do they really think they'll attract business from outside the area?

Then come the decisions
gold teefs or tarbucks?
crack or tarbucks?
22 inch rims or tarbucks?
weed or tarbucks?

I would really like this to be followed up, as I can't imagine the store turning a profit, not even considering the safety of it.

Is there any follow up on the yoga center that was opened there?

I Pity the Fool that draws the short straw being the boss of this store.
My uncle's missus has a Subway franchise in N.Z. I used to buy subs every day off a bloke at another location (worked out cheaper than preparing dinner plus hired a young chickie). So of course we yarned often- he was ex-military and I was a right-wing outspoken dude.

"Opportunity Youth" 16-24 yos who didn't follow a "traditional" education path?

New term for gangsters who quit or were expelled from school.

I predict the Starbucks franchise will never open, unless, as PK suggested, they get the ok for 501(c)3 and they can open the store with funds from the charity. If they can't, the promise will fade from the spotlight and no one will remember they were going to open one.

OT: as to the former Air Force Sgt, she wasn't a sergeant when she "resigned" from the military. It seems the Air Force frowns upon its version of drill sergeants doing photo shoots for playboy while touting their military occupation, wearing their dog tags, and other military like clothing items. They demoted her to E-4, whatever that is in the Air Force and she decided to get out. Then she draped herself, or partially clothed herself in the American flag in one of those nearly nude PETA adds. That flag touched the floor, but it's ok because they gave it to some Boy Scouts to dispose of it properly. Aside from the not allowing the flag to touch the ground, the code also prohibits it from being used as clothing or on clothing. I guess that didn't matter for her, because her desecration of the flag was for a more noble cause.

She is fairly attractive however with her plastic parts and skillful airbrushing of the photos by the editors.

There was a commenter on the the last post who stated that Latinos/Mexicans are just as bad as blacks. I used to feel the same way. It wasn't until I began working with "disadvantaged" children that I changed my tune.

I worked at a school that was primarily Hispanic with some blacks and whites thrown in for good measure. I worked in a kindergarten class, and my experiences were thus: Hispanic parents wanted to help their kids, they just often didn't know how. Things that seem obvious to white parents (reading to them, helping them with their homework) were not on their radar- but once shown what to do, they did care enough to put in the time to help their child succeed. Not so with blacks. They also didn't know how to help their kids, but the difference is that they didn't care to learn how. That was the school's job.

The worst case was a little boy who would often get into fights with other kids. He had a fked up arm (mom probably broke it when punishing him and never took him to the doctor to get it set back right) and couldn't color for sht with his other arm. 5 years old and can't even use a crayon correctly. Good job, mom. I even had to spend time doing remedial counting exercises with him and such while the other kids worked on much more advanced things. I never got to meet his mammy (of course there was no dad in the picture, no surprise there), although I got to experience her not showing up for her son's appointments/conferences over and over again. Not only did this show a complete lack of care for her keed, but it fcked with the teacher's schedule as she had to keep blocking out time for these meetings that the mom would never show up to.

The next 2 were not nearly as bad (halfricans, I believe) but were a brother and sister in the same class. Well, half-brother/sister. Had the same black dad but different mothers. He favored the son, because he was from the mother that he was currently "with". When he showed up to class on a parent participation day was not only unexpected, but incredibly ackward. I would get to hear the boy tell the girl all of the things that daddy had gotten his favored child, even though he didn't live with either mother. Can't cramp his style after all, he might want to knock up some other single woman.

From that one year I saw an incredible contrast between how much more involved the Hispanic parents were (Hispanic dads don't abandon their kids like blacks do, or at least not nearly as much). I saw these parents who were already struggling with English and a foreign culture (I live near a large farm community) who nonetheless made it a point to make extra sacrifices for their children and to make any changes to their parenting once they learned better. Blacks. Just. Don't. Care.

The local community college has a very high Hispanic population, and it is not uncommon to see many people of Hispanic decent working in the medical field around here, not to mention engineers and the like. In a generation these people are able to assimilate and turn things around. I am not posting this to spread the Hispanic love- I am just trying to illustrate to you how blacks are in a league of their own.

Hispanics are not so loud, obnoxious, rapey, violent crime prone as Basketball Americans. We don't need websites to vent about each aspect of their appalling behavior like we do to blacks. They are redeemable to an extent- blacks aren't, which is why pissing away so much money on them makes veins pop out of our necks.

All other races are sick of their shuck and jive, which is why I prefer to use the term non-black as opposed to white when speaking of the divisions. Hispanics, along with all other non-black races don't blame whitey for every problem under the sun and are content to work and improve themselves. As I said, blacks are in a league of their own.

You know...this could actually go a long way towards bankrupting Starbucks. While the denizens of Ferguson aren't used to the idea of work,they can most certainly sense an opportunity.

At least a few of the more enterprising ones will be able to come up with a reason to sue that won't get completely laughed out of court. Slip/trip/fall??? Blisters when a coffee is spilled? The possibilities are there.

And with the right jury ( which ought not to be unachievable in STL ),the potential for payout is worth chasing.

And that's just the customers,mind you. The staff at the Ferguson location is going to be what could charitably be called a target rich environment for the local predators,and hospital bills and physical therapy/rehab bills can very easily run into the millions.

I'm sure Starbucks is attempting to increase their 'political correctness' credibility by daring to open a store that sells overpriced coffee to affluent white liberals in a predominately black neighborhood.

Dreams of whites and blacks, sitting next to each other drinking coffee side by side while discussing and formulating plans for the revolution must have been drawn up in the minds of whoever made this decision.

In practice, all they're doing is putting a cheap price tag on the lives and well beings of whoever is desperate/stupid enough to work there.

Well, I called it folks! After the initial Starbucks fiasco, (within SBPDL Article: Sunday, March 22, 2015 The Business Model of Starbucks Explained: The Reason 86% Black Jackson, MS Doesn't Have a Starbucks), I had posted the following commentary, which is coming to fruition. Honestly, it was very obvious of what was going to happen with the white guilt-ridden Starbucks owners...really.

"I think I have an idea of how this will play out, and make Starbucks look like a champion (to the uninformed) in the long run:
The brilliant team @Starbucks will place a couple of "token" stores in black communities to quell the naysayers, they'll make big news of it, mentioned at every speech and motivational speaking engagement. Of course these stores will close within the next 6yrs. In the meantime, the price of a cup-o-jo will rise for the loyal (but stupid) consumers who must have their latte (which btw is Italian for coffee w/milk...eeh gahds), and these stupid white customers will rid their guilt knowing these extra few cents were motivational in helping out the poor destitute blacks.
The folks @ Starbucks ain't stupid don't ya know....they know exactly how to pander and keep the $19billion industry floating."

And there you have it...White guilt-pandering to the BRA, gives such a warm-fuzzy feeling doesn't it? BTW...I'd sure like to have heard the conference room discussions leading up to this decision. You know it went something like this: "...Well we're going to have to take a loss on at least one store to get this off of our backs publically, and our tax accountant says we can write-off all of the loss. So, it's a win-win for us financially, and politically (high-five slaps all around)..."

Times up guys.

Every time I go to read the news at least 2 of the stories now are of black people protesting. Over the same old sht. All it takes is one black male, a crime committed, and a police officer who inadvertently kills said man while following police procedures.

We are done giving them the 1000th benefit of the doubt. You can see the look of disgust on peoples faces at this point. People are having offline conversations because hey, if 2/10 stories are going to be of black people standing around protesting and blocking intersections and people's lives and meals due to a white cop shoots unarmed black man (omit felony that was being committed that required a police response), then hey, fuck it. People of all races, not just blacks, hate being fed what to think. One can only take so much.

One looks at me, being naturally stupid, obnoxious, careless, and offensive all in one bounce, disobeying orders from an armed and announced officer of the law. Why in public can't I ever say "Hey Dipshit, you (fill in the felony here) and a cop caught you. Just shut the fuck up and HANDS UP DON'T SHOOT. Remember Nigga?

At this point they are going to start offing themselves just to help their parent pay the bills.

For those of you who have found my rant, please don't let me go it alone... I am so sick of this sht and it's time people starting taking the gloves off.

Non-black lives matter, that is all your honor.

I guess in all fairness...things are looking up for the negro in Ferguson. They have the new yoga studio that opened recently. Now they have a new starbucks in the making. Nothing like that fresh cup-o-muddy water after the early morning workout. By the time Thanksgiving rolls around they could have a few fattened cows running down Flourissant Ave ready to hack up with their machetes. Then they can have a kwanzaa zulu warrior week..complete with dwl santa clauses' because ole evil racist ToysRUs is gone. The future looks good for the negro there...and the property values rising...omg we wont even start on that!!!!! NC Realist

This is OT, but I would like to share with your readers, Paul. I watched an episode of NOVA last night that documented the challenges associated with the Hubble space telescope. All of those brilliant, white scientists and astronauts employing their collective and superior IQs in a quest to advance the sciences and man’s knowledge of the universe. There wasn’t a black face among them; I felt simultaneously proud and dismayed because those days are gone, for now. After the telescope had been repaired, there was a scene which showed footage of the NASA scientists waiting on edge to see the first, improved images from Hubble. When the pictures began to populate their computer screens applause and celebration erupted in the room as it became clear to them that all of their hard work had finally paid off. Negroes holler and dance around, cheering loudly when they slam dunk a basketball. The contrast between our two races is as profound as the before and after images from Hubble.

I thought the general public was a little less naive about these kinds of initiatives by now. The CEO of Starbucks couldn't care less about black people. He only knows how to sell the image of having values.

Were I building a marketing strategy, my outlook would extend far beyond the fading values of today. Tides are turning, but white Americans are still the greatest producers and the bulk of the buyers, especially of luxury coffee drinks. We'll continue to be the most important market for these kinds of goods for a long time. It's stupid to alienate your customer base.

Starbucks grew out of white Americans travelling to Europe and drinking latte and espressos there. Finding sitting and reading quietly in European coffee shops elegant.
Blacks don't sip and read. Lower class blacks have not been to Europe. A latte and a cookie cost an hour's minimum wage.
Is the Starbucks CEO trying to infuriate the already irascible people of Ferguson?

Kind of on topic: Look at the picture with the NPR story of a diverse school in New Orleans:

And one great comment: "I showed my young child the picture of the class. His immediate comment was "they are learning to sit up?"

Hipsters should read SBPDL!

The first wave of migrant farmers and those cleaning toilets to send money home are hard workers. These immigrants, legal or not, tend to resemble the Asians when it comes to their children's education as well.

You may not have noticed the second wave of Hispanics, the criminal group they operate like blacks, but have the added leverage of illegals don't call or trust the cops and know the cartel members will hack them up here as well as back down in Latin America.

Now that illegal immigrants are graduating to a "protected class" by law and executive order, they're drawing contempt. Now they're like the gibs we already have. Now claiming fake kids with fake tax ID numbers isn't the only free money they're going to get. They get state issued IDs, which thanks to motor voter laws the blacks don't understand, illegal immigrants now have the power to vote in those states issuing the IDs.

I admit that Obama and his crack heads are right, the DOJ is not going to try not be able to deport the 12 million or so illegals out of the country. What these amnesty bills do encourage though is a larger wave of illegal immigration in the hopes they will get amnesty as well. Once the Feds announced they would not deport unaccompanied minors anymore, 600 thousand unaccompanied minors crossed the border last year.

We, non-jewish whites, can do little other than vote with our pocketbooks. Which is why I have never bought anything Starbucks branded, and never will.

As for the Ferguson opening, if you noticed there was no specific timeline planned and so we don't know when, if ever, it will open. But I agree with those who pointed out that even if it gets opened, the cost is much less than what a typical nationwide advertising campaign would cost.

The new Ferguson Starbucks will have to be based on a new store model to succeed. There is no possible way that the area accessible by the public can have trinkets, cups, coffee machines, books or any other object that can be damaged or stolen by the feral blacks. A profitable Starbucks in Ferguson should probably be based on the Sonic business model. They will also need to do something about their prices. Perhaps they could come out with a cheap brew specifically targeting Ferguson called BLM and replace the siren logo on the cups with a “hands up” logo.

Don't miss the subtle truth embedded in the article.

There is no specific plan to open a Starbucks in Ferguson.
There is no timeline.
No projected opening date, or plans to break ground.

Starbuck's CEO got his fanny paddled over his race conversation initiative, and this is his way of saving face.

He knows he has the media on his side.
They will loudly trumpet his intention to open up coffee shops in Negro areas, and will then quietly and compliantly let the matter drop.

There is, literally, no limit to liberal hypocrisy.

I was into serious coffee a long time ago. I lived near North Beach in San Francisco but I didn't drink espresso.

Then we went to Italy - specifically Tuscany. One morning in Sienna I had breakfast on the Piazza del Campo. I thought at the time that that was the most wonderful spot on earth. I still do.

I ordered a cappuccino and it changed my life. When I got back to San Francisco I tried to replicate that coffee in the Italian shops all around me.

I bought the first of many cappuccino machines. So I count myself as an expert or at least a pioneer. The Seattle coffee boom and with it Starbucks wasn't for many years later.

I'm here to explain what is important for great coffee. It isn't the brand of machine and it isn't even the quality of the beans. It's the cleanliness of the equipment.

The Starbucks in the best neighborhoods are spotless. No body is going to pay $5.00 for a cup of coffee made on a machine that hasn't been made scrupulously clean.

If the Ferguson Starbucks is run by blacks. I wonder.

From a Real Estate point of view, this really blows.

The RE dept at Starbucks spends a lot of time telling those who want to expand why they can't based on their Black Box numbers. These are the set of numbers predicting success of a franchise at any given location. They are based on the number of cars in the traffic flow, cost of square footage, parking space numbers, income within bicycling distance, on and on. Starbucks franchise's are expensive and lots of money goes down to build one and the Company expects the owner to break his back making those franchise fees.

Get the right combo and bang, the model predicts success. Each iteration of that model that succeeds reinforces that model.

It is not a very creative way of establishing a business, but it works.

For example, MacDonald's model emphasizes building franchises along a large freeway exit ramps so that parents of hungry children clamoring for food (and who have been conditioned by TV to want MacDonald's food) are practically herded into the restaurant.

It works.

Having a CEO sacrifice a franchisee on the alter of Political Correctness is an unbelievably stupid thing to do.
It breaks Morale for every owner in the future, it opens the way for lawsuits of past owners who have failed for one reason or another But Now They Can Prove That The Company doesn't Always follow the model in every case! It also show that the CEO has zero integrity over his brand, that he views it a merely a "device" rather than a real advancement.

It means that any Starbucks in a darkening area had better sell out and try again rather than expect the company to "help" boost sales. If you get in financial trouble because of the negro area, too bad "cuz ebdy gosta hep".

One can only presume that Schultz and his pals, in the comfort and total safety of their very secure corporate offices, figure that opening a new Starbucks in a giant nigrah outhouse called Ferguson, is merely a a cost staying in business with the rest of the civilized world. IOW, sort of throwing bananas at the gorillas to keep tham at bay.

So what if they get robbed twice a week and lose a few employees here and there to gunshot wounds and 38 OZ Louisville Sluggers? So what if they run the dump at a loss? To you and me, that would be like losing one penny a year in our back yard.

After all, the price of race relations doesn't come cheap, and it would appear Starbucks is leading the way by taking a "huge" business hit here.

What have they got now? If my figures are correct, they have 0ver 22,000 coffee shops worldwide, not counting those located in stores and malls, and annual revenues of over 16 billion!

Yeppers, these Good Samaritans at Starbucks put their money where their mouth is! To put this unbelieveably hypocritical gesture in perspective, it would be as if you owning the New York Yankees and "helping" race relations in your city by holding a lottery for blacks only and giving out one free ticket a week to the winner. Of course, you also get to keep the money of the thousands of other losers!

Starbucks, we luv ya. Now show us what your corporate owners and staff are really made of and invite tens of thousands of these fine young black bucks to spend a few months in your mansions, on your 300 foot yahcts and squatting in your collective gazillion dollar vacations homes!

Just make sure you send your wives and daughters to Europe if you want them back later on.

This will definitely be a corporate owned store. I just looked into Starbucks franchise requirements and it seems pretty hard to get approved.

I've always heard they generally only partner up with franchisees when the real estate is not available to them(airports,colleges etc.

Doesn't matter, no person who is smart enough and talented enough to become a franchisee would invest there.

Not all people desire to own their own business or even be self-employed. I own and run a business and love it. Fat pay checks from others are nice, but have never been as fat for me as I've been able to write to myself. I take risks everyday, usually calculated, but sometimes on a whim.

No one of any business aptitude would risk investing here. Starbucks shouldn't, but probably will, due to the fact that they are left coast libs who feel good about hiring negroes anywhere except where they live.

All though negroes spend ALL their money(each pay or more likely benefit period), which our economy appreciates, it's never enough to create a business model from. The purchasing power of the negro is limited.

OT but important to how we got here. I'm finishing Days of Rage which chronicles late 60's radicals the Weathermen mostly. This is the group that Billy Ayers and Bernadette Dohrn belonged to. They were real punks, truly privileged little pigs that planted a lot of bombs around the U.S in the late 60's and early 70's.

The group's motivations were not driven by Vietnam. They picked that up later to acquire the young people who didn't like the war. The real driving force for these demons was.... racism. They were attacking racism and particularly American "racism" against the cuddly negro. There were hundreds of hard-core Weathermen and they were all focused on destroying the U.S. to save the negro.

You might recall that the satanic Barack Obama announced his Illinois senate campaign from the luxurious living room townhouse of Billy Ayers and Dorhn.

It's all connected.

I can’t believe he actually expects this store to succeed in a black neighborhood. Like I said, this has to be a ruse.

If he truly believed in black people, he would locate his corporate headquarters in North St. Louis in the worst part of town. He would see to it that every black city was well served by a Starbucks.

He is a pathetic loser who will lose money for his company by buying into this diversity bullshit.

People dressed up for things in general back then. In my earliest memories from the 60s, people dressed up — at least a sports jacket and slacks for men and a nice dress or skirt/blouse combo for the women — to go to the movies, to fly or take the train, to go to the museum, to meet the manager to rent an apartment, just about everything that wasn't a daily event. We school kids also always had "nice" school clothes and then somewhat scruffier play clothes that we had to change into immediately after we came home from school. At that time in the upper Midwest, late 60s to early 70s, it was unacceptable for little girls to wear pants to the local public schools, and the girls in my neighborhood also usually wore skirts and dresses to play in after school.

Now even businessmen no longer wear ties, and I see people wearing "gangsta" T-shirts in court...

Starbucks probably does figure they can open, run it for a year, and dump it and suck up the loss.

Locally they have one store in a strip plaza - a franchise perhaps? and tried to expand with two purpose built stores about 3 miles apart in a busy but weak retail area also loaded with Dunkin Donuts, McDonalds, and Tim Hortons.

The two stores lasted about a year before they gave up; one became a bank, because Hortons had built a store nearby already; the other became... another Hortons. Which eventually caused the first Hortons to also close. There's a lot of long-vacant retail in this strip, too.

But the bottom line is they already know what it costs to run a failing store or two, albeit without the ineptitude that will come from hiring nogs to run the place.

I think the only time I purposely got a coffee from them was when I was at a toll highway rest stop and that was the only choice.

A few years back, I made a trip to a coffee-growing region, where I toured a few coffee farms. At one farm, the manager told us that she sold "to all the major chains. Peets buys our highest grade of coffee; Starbucks buys our lowest grade of coffee."

The next place was an organic coffee farm where they explained the deal on grades of coffee. You can do a Vienna or City roast on high-grade beans as the volatile oils that give coffee its flavor boil out of the bean at low temperatures. Low-grade beans need an Italian or espresso roast to get the oils out, but this can cause the coffee to be bitter. Making the coffee with an espresso maker can avoid some of the bitterness.

This explains why Starbucks makes lousy coffee in a drip pot. It also explains their business model: buy cheap crap coffee and market the hell out of it, while insulting customers about race. You're MUCH better off at Peet's.

That was a great post. I wasn't familiar with Peet's, but after reading your post I looked up some locations and plan to try their coffee.

I foresee some real purty new ghetto baby names coming to to Fergustan. Queen Shaniqua will be so proud to be a Tarbucks barista that she names her next little chimp Frappaccino ShaNayNay Jackson. Who will be followed by Macciato DaVontay Brown. Just check the Fergustan police reports in about a dozen years and you'll see I'm right!

This is only tokenism. Everyone knows it. The clearheaded are laughing their backsides off over Schultz's stupidity. The addle. brained are beside themselves with joy to see Starbucks commitment to diversity. But in a few days everyone will recognize it for the gesture of tokenism that it is, especially "Reverends" Jackson and Sharpton.

Right now both of these paragons of black leadership are probably lying in some skanks' beds, sucking on post-coital crack pipes, licking their fat negro lips and smiling, because, like hungry hyenas, they recognize Schultz is a wounded beast, just waiting to be devoured and now ripe for some pay-out money to their civil rights *gag* organizations.

Anyway, on more that one occasion, they ended up in Cleveland. You have to laugh a little! They were actually trying to drive to Cincinnati and went via Cleveland.


What's the difference? Aren't they both formerly great cities that are overrun?

Ok, ok....Cleveland was probably never "great". But still....

Will 'customers' be able to take what they want, shove the manager into a display, and leave without paying

I am %100 in favor Starbucks on this one, open more ghetto stores Howard, do it today ! Either Howard will never open the store, just talk, talk, talk about it or it will open with heavy security, imported IKAGO nogs and DWLs. Pictures will be taken, TV will be all over the opening, the NYT will have it on the front page and Starbucks will shut it down six months later. What a fucking joke.

The only thing Howard and his hypocrite YKW friends like more than lecturing YT about evil racism is money, money, money and more of it always, never enough. No way will that big hypocrite Howard Schultz eat losses for any length of time. Even if Starbucks takes EBT there is no way a store in Ferguson can break even never mind turn a profit.

But if you do scold them, you may need a barrister to defend you afterwards.

Anon at 8:47, it's also barista, not barrister.

This location will start a revolution in ebt flexibility and politically corruptness, "Gibs me a mocho bro-cho White gurrl lat-tayee thang, and hurry up honky".

If you have any stock in Starbucks it's time to dump it.

Unless they except EBT I don't see it being there long.

Why do the "Howard Schultz's" of the world always press race relations and diversity on the world yet in their sacred israel they do not want any of it?

Anonymous said...

Wow. Spot on.


Oh well, the profitable locations will be subsidizing these loss leaders, i wonder how long that will be allowed to continue? Wonder if they'll start taking ebt so taxpayers can subsidize the customers as well?.

Good analogy, except this little brother will kill you and burn your city down.

"Anon at 8:47, it's also barista, not barrister."

Maybe the poster used the correct word meaning the attorney type barrister. We Whites know that when a white says "NO" to a negro, said white is going to need an attorney.

Anyone know how that Virginia race track that was letting blacks in for free fared after that?

This kind of business 'stupidity' is not about the money.

Its about appearances and gaining social credit in the eyes of liberal idealistic customers elsewhere.

Those customers will imagine all kinds of pie in the sky idealism about themselves as customers, blacks and Starbucks that have no connection to reality but will encourage them to continue supporting Starbucks.

Today's propaganda has nothing to do with facts and everything to do with false perceptions.

Here we have an insane example.

Schultz is a silly, foolish little man living in his ivory tower, and doesn't have any idea what blacks are really like. Unless he's going to give away cups of his expensive coffee to the nigras, I guess we taxpayers will be subsidizing his nonsense. I'm sure he's gotten a government grant to do this.
