BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewaNow.com) — Word from readers throughout the area is that Starbucks’ arguably Ill-conceived campaign to bring race relations to your black cup of coffee is pushing patrons to other stores like Dunkin Donuts, where you can get coffee and a snack without a course in discourse.
“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?”
It’s not just Boca. Starbucks’ bizarre #RaceTogether campaign is being mocked on Twitter and through international media. The apparent consensus: stick to coffee.
USAToday on Thursday is also planning take part in the campaign — some say creating the news instead of covering it.
