Say, Why Are There No Starbucks In Selma And Ferguson?

Good question. Jen Kuznicki discusses, especially since Eric Holder once said that Americans are cowards when it comes to discussing race. Of course, Liberals do not want a conversation, they want a soliloquy, which hides their own tendencies which would be considered racist if a Conservative was involved

(CNS News) Starbucks executive Corey duBrowa recently deleted his twitter account, after what he said were abusive comments as a result of his push for a campaign in which his baristas were to engage with customers about race relations.

“I was personally attacked through my Twitter account around midnight last night and the tweets represented a distraction from the respectful conversation we are trying to start around Race Together,” duBrowa said. “I’ll be back on Twitter soon.”

But the whole point of the conversations he promoted, was to get people talking about what is uncomfortable, and controversial.  It seems childish to delete his own twitter account over it.

Lost of far left Liberals can dish it out, but not take it. If you jump into the political arena, you best have thick skin

If Starbucks wants us to talk about race, let’s start with why they don’t have Starbucks Coffee Houses in some of America’s cities that are mostly black, or have had a racially charged history?

My friend looked up various cities, and found that there are no Starbucks Coffee Houses in many of them.

Places like Highland Park, Michigan, which is at the center of Detroit, is inhabited by a population that is 94 percent African-American.  Or in Benton Harbor, Michigan, which is almost 90 percent African-American.  There is not a Starbucks in either town.

There is not a Starbucks in East St. Louis, Illinois, in which 98 percent of the population is African-American. Nor is there one in Gary, Indiana, whose population is 85 percent African-American.

The recent remembrance of the march on Selma, Alabama had the president walking down the street with many people who fought for civil rights, but once again, Selma doesn’t have a Starbucks. Neither does Ferguson, Missouri.

If you further look at the racial dot map and zoom in, then compare it to a Google map noting Starbucks’ locations, you will see that Starbucks tends to avoid Black neighborhoods, such as in D.C. and Seattle. Seattle being the home base for Starbucks. The closest Starbucks to Selma is in Montgomery, and, in fairness, 1 of the 6 Starbucks locations is in a mixed racial area.

Why does this heavily liberal company tend to avoid locating stores in Black areas? Do they not think Blacks would like coffee? Could it be that the company is racist, to use the language of the Left?

In reality, Starbucks locations are a great measure of economic activity. Selma’s economic activity is pretty poor. So is that in Ferguson. Perhaps Starbucks could help increase economic activity by locating stores in those areas.
