DAILYKENN.com -- If you desire to vent your virtue, here's the golden opportunity to signal. Starbucks is accused of racism "at its ugliest level" after two black males were arrested for trespassing.
• Had the cops been called on two white men trespassing, would a media firestorm ensued? Or is virtue signalling reserved exclusively for black victims?
• Is there any indication that the suspects were arrested due to race? Were the employees who called the cops black? Does it matter?
• Has white racism declined so dramatically in America that the worse case scenario of racism "at its ugliest level" is two black guys being asked not to trespass?
• Is it possible the men were casing the joint or waiting for a lull in patron presence to commit a robbery? Could that be white Starbucks has a policy against loitering?
• I was recently asked by a friend why I obsess about race. This story exemplifies the reason: The far left obsesses about race and requires an answer.
• Here's a statement you won't hear from Starbucks:
"Starbucks is pleased to announce is policy against loitering is enforced without racial bias."
Here's another statement you won't hear from Starbucks:
"Blacks, and only blacks, are exempt from our policy against loitering." That, however, appears to be the de facto policy.
