Another day goes by and another Starbucks is reported for acting racist treatment towards customers. It was just the other day when a Starbucks in Philadelphia was labeled as racist as two black real estate brokers were arrested. The Starbucks employee called the police because the two black men had sat in the store for a while and did not purchase anything. The two black men in Philadelphia who were arrested claimed they were waiting for a friend to arrive.
Taking the heat off the Philadelphia Starbucks is one located in southern California. This Starbucks didn’t have anyone arrested, but they displayed an obvious and classic case of racist behavior and it was all caught on film. According to reports, the Starbucks involved in this racist incident involves a black man not being granted access to the bathroom, but a white man being granted access to the bathroom. it was clear, cut, and dry as day.
A black man asked for the code to use the bathroom, but he was told no. He was not a customer yet, so some people believe that was why he didn’t get the code to use the bathroom. The black man then waited outside of the restroom and he saw a white man walk out. He stopped to talk to the white man while recording, and he found out that the white man didn’t buy anything yet either. Upon learning that, the black man with the camera then confronted the barista and called them out on their racist behavior. The baristas responded rather negatively and asked the man to stop recording them. The racist Starbucks video can be seen below.
Brandon Ward asked to use the bathroom. Starbucks employees said no. Ward didn't buy anything yet. Ward then saw a white man come out of the bathroom and asked him if he bought anything yet. He didn't buy anything yet either, but he was allowed to use the bathroom. The bathroom at this location requires a keycode to get in. This was obvious racism and should not be tolerated.

USA Today reported more on the racist incident at the southern California Starbucks: “As the coffee chain reels from the videotaped arrest two black men at a Philadelphia, another video emerged showing an African-American man being denied access to a restroom at a Starbucks location in southern California.
The video, posted to Twitter by activist Shaun King, purports to show an African-American man identified as Brandon Ward in a Torrance, Calif., store asking why he was denied access to the store’s restroom when a white customer was granted access.
KABC-TV in Los Angeles, which was able to reach Ward, said the incident occurred in January. Ward, 26, could not be reached for comment, but had posted the video on his Facebook page. There has been from Starbucks. The video had received more than 230,000 views as of early Monday afternoon.
It came as Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson offered apologies after employees in one of the company’s Philadelphia stores called the police to report two well-dressed black men were trespassing Thursday by refusing to leave when they hadn’t ordered drinks or food. One had asked to use a restroom and was denied, saying it was only for paying customers. The pair explained they were waiting for their friend, who is seen arriving and protesting the arrest before the pair are led away in handcuffs.
Starbucks confirmed the manager who made the call to police has since left the company.
“Starbucks was built as a company that creates a warm, welcoming environment for all customers. That didn’t happen in this case,” Johnson told Good Morning America on Monday. “I’ve been very focused on understanding what guidelines and what training ever let this happen. What happened was wrong and we will fix it.”
The latest video has renewed social media calls for a boycott of Starbucks, with users flocking to Twitter and Instagram using the hashtag #BoycottStarbucks.”
People on social media are calling for boycotts. People are protesting some Starbucks locations in person. Everything is falling apart for the ultra-liberal coffee company who sells overpriced and highly sugary drinks that can’t possibly be healthy for anyone.
Starbucks as a business has a lot of questions to answer and a lot of making up to do with the public. They have taken a major public relations hit thanks to their employees acting irresponsibly and racist towards black patrons.
The Starbucks company has been known to find themselves in political controversies, but none seemed to be as hard hitting as this. Everything from saying they’ll hire tons of refugees to go against President Trump to making different holiday cups that caused people to be upset. None of their controversies run as deep as this unwanted and irresponsible case of racist behavior.
People on the right and left of politics have agreed that this is absolutely unacceptable and it doesn’t seem like just an apology is going to work this time.
Starbucks needs to be more than just sorry for what their employees did to those men just because they were black.
Skin color should not dictate how you treat someone who walks into your business. Starbucks might have to offer them a free year of drinks for their irreprehensible actions.
How would you feel if you were treated like this? Would you be upset if Starbucks did this to you? Share your opinions and the story to your friends!

First Video of Latest Trump Star Vandal Swinging Pickaxe Shows What Happened – Spread Like Wildfire
TMZ is now reporting that the LAPD has released the first video and has made an arrest in connection with the unhinged destruction of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. In it, a man used a pickaxe to unleash his intense frustration and anger at the president and shred the star to pieces.
The suspect, who has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay, was arrested on Wednesday and released early Thursday morning on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s online records. A department spokesman later said he had been held on bail of $20,000 on a charge of felony vandalism. It wasn’t immediately clear who posted bail for Mr. Clay but unsubstantiated rumors were circulating that the money came from a gofundme page which was set up right after the arrest.
In this latest incident, LAPD later confirmed that they received a call around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning claiming that someone had taken a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood star. The police later confirmed that the vandal had pulled a pickax out of a guitar case and proceeded to smash the star which is located on the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
Here is more on this via Hot Air:
“It’s a victory for La Résistance, one supposes, but mainly just another demonstration of empty nihilism. Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got attacked by a vandal with a pickaxe this morning, the latest in a series of attempts to deface the installation. This attempt was a little more complete than others:
President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he concealed in a guitar case, police said.
Officers were called around 3:30 a.m. to the star’s location on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, where they found a small pile of rubble in place of the star that Trump received in January 2007 for his role in the NBC show “The Apprentice.”
The suspect later turned himself in to Beverly Hills police, after having conducted the vandalism in full view of a number of witnesses:
Even at in the pre-dawn hours, there were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work.
“I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever,” Patricia Cox said. “I didn’t know what was going on. …
A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star.
Trump’s star had to be replaced after being vandalized in October 2016 by a man dressed as a construction worker. James Otis used a pix ax and a sledgehammer then, and later pleaded no contest to felony vandalism.
Since Trump announced his candidacy and his subsequent election, the star has been a magnet for visitors unhappy with the current political climate. It has been defaced by tourists and dogs, had a model of a border wall built around it, and covered with “I resist” stickers.
All of which make perpetrators feel good about themselves, and … well, that’s just about it. All of these attacks, on a sidewalk or on other such locations, are the political equivalent of masturbation. It doesn’t even have the political impact of an honest, legal protest, which requires at least some coherent thought and rhetoric. Instead of mindless lust, it’s mindless rage, directed at an object no one really cares about except the people who will have to pay to have it repaired. And repaired and replaced it inevitably will be, which makes this exercise entirely pointless except for the revenue the city will get from the fines it will impose on the perpetrator.
But hey, at least the perp didn’t have to do any real work, like make an argument or organize to change the status quo. Probably because he’s incapable of either, frankly.”
What is wrong with these people? It’s okay to not agree with the president, or have voted for Hillary Clinton instead of him, and express your own opinion about what he’s doing in office, but it’s unacceptable for an adult to do that by vandalizing. What makes it worse is that in doing so, he’s supported by many others who somehow accept this as a good expression of speech and allegedly financially support him in doing so. That, combined with the notoriety he receives from it, is a winning combination for attention deprived activists.
Bail handouts or not, until some of these vandals and anti-Trump attackers are locked up for pulling stunts like this, things won’t stop. Maybe if all these so-called “resist” people focused on what they could do for their own lives to improve them, rather than blaming all their issues on Trump being president, they would find meaning in their life, rather than lurking around in the middle of the night destroying public property.
Hillary’s Big TV Sitcom Debut Coming To CBS This Fall With An Infuriating Show Theme
“It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse…”
Hillary Clinton is set to be a guest-star who will star as herself when she makes an appearance on a major sitcom. The show will also feature two other former secretaries of the state. It’s the show on CBS titled Madam Secretary and Hillary will be on the show along with Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. They will play themselves on the show, which might be infuriating to some people as not everyone appears to be a fan of Hillary Clinton thanks to all the alleged scandals she’s been involved in.
It appears as though it might only be a single episode, but the fact that Clinton, the most scandalous of the three former secretaries, would be playing herself. People might wonder if part of her debut will show her deleting emails one at a time. Will the show go into what happened with Benghazi? Will the show discuss Clinton having the Democratic nominee ripped out of Bernie Sanders heart? Although, that part is ironic because socialist Sanders learned what it felt like to have something he worked for taken and given to someone else.
Is Hillary hoping to have the same success on the big screen that Roseanne did? Not sure that will happen considering the number of people who are very upset with Clinton and her allegations.
“The fictional secretary of state of CBS’ Madam Secretary will turn to three former real-life holders of the post when the show begins its fifth season this fall.
Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright will appear as themselves in the episode, set to air Sunday, Oct. 7. The trio filmed their cameos on July 11, Madam Secretary‘s first week back in production.
“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said series creator and executive producer Barbara Hall. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”
Added executive producer Lori McCreary: “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”
In the episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) asks Albright, Powell and Clinton for advice on a delicate matter.
Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the first woman to hold the post. She has appeared on Madam Secretary once before, guest-starring early in season two. She also has played herself on Parks and Recreation and Gilmore Girls.
Powell was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2001-05. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had an uncredited cameo on JAG in 1997.
Clinton served under President Barack Obama as secretary of state from 2009-13. She did a cameo on Broad City in 2016 and appeared opposite her Saturday Night Live portrayer, Kate McKinnon, in 2015.”
Good thing it’s just a cameo because I’m not sure Hillary’s health would hold up with the brutal schedule that some actors go through. Hours of makeup, multiple takes, and that doesn’t even include walking up and down steps in foreign countries. On that note, it might include an updated wardrobe to help get Hillary out of those pantsuits and muumuus.
Keep your eyes peeled for this episode as it will likely go viral once commentators pick apart the pieces worth sharing on news outlets and social media.
If you’re wondering about Roseanne’s success, then here’s an excerpt from Deadline: “The ratings records keep coming for the debut of ABC’s Roseanne revival last week. After setting a new record for the largest-ever total viewer Live+3 lift, the sitcom’s Season 10 opener has scored TV’s largest-ever Total Viewer L+7 increase for any single telecast on any network with a big +8.81 million viewer lift over its L+SD tally. That topped the previous high,+7.86 million gain for the 9/25/17 debut of ABC’s new drama The Good Doctor. After seven days of delayed viewing, the audience of the Roseanne premiere has grown to 27.26 million total viewers (from 18.45 million in Live+Same Day).”
Hillary probably won’t come anywhere close to getting numbers like these. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of the show Madam Secretary, so maybe it’s not that popular anyway. Having Hillary on the show now seems like nothing more than a gimmick to pick up some viewers.
