“How dare Starbucks turn my $4 latte into a discussion about oppression,” wrote one reader. “My relationship with Starbucks is about coffee, not Ferguson.”
“If Starbucks really wants to do something about race, how about catering to people other than those who are so affluent they can spend $30 a week on coffee?”
