The announcement was made in response to a controversial situation that occurred last month, in which two black men were arrested at a Starbucks store in Philadelphia's Rittenhouse Square. After being denied access to the bathrooms, the two casually-dressed men, who claimed they were waiting for a friend to have a "business meeting," occupied tables inside the store until employees decided to call the police.
The men were taken away in handcuffs, much to the chagrin of other customers in the store who were heard in a viral video stating that they "didn't do anything." The incident sparked almost immediate outrage by social justice warriors (SJWs), who complained online that the non-paying customers were targeted simply for "being black."
In typical Starbucks form, company CEO Howard Schultz was also quick to condemn the decision by the employees, as he then proceeded to bend over backwards to pacify the "Black Lives Matter" element of his customer base. Even though the actual circumstances surrounding the incident remain unclear, Schultz decided it was best to play the race card against his own company – and has now basically turned his chain of stores into homeless camps for anyone who wants to occupy them at any given time.
"We don't want to become a public bathroom, but we're going to make the right decision 100% of the time and give people the key, because we don't want anyone at Starbucks to feel as if we are not giving access to use the bathroom," Schultz stated in his announcement, failing to clarify how the move won't, in practicality, turn all Starbucks stores into public bathrooms.
If it turns out that the two black men who were arrested were targeted simply for being black, then this is definitely an issue that Schultz should address. But changing the company's policies to allow anyone, including homeless people, junkies, and others, to use all Starbucks stores as shelter without requiring them to purchase anything, is just about the worst business move that Schultz could make.
It won't be long before every Starbucks store – and especially those located in urban areas with large homeless populations – becomes an indoor "tent city," filled with every type of degenerate who has nowhere else to go. And as these non-customers take up all the tables in the stores, actual paying customers will be driven away in droves, eventually putting the company out of business.
It's just sheer stupidity, in other words, to make this drastic change when doing so stands to completely eliminate all paying customers from Starbucks stores. Professionals and others who are willing to fork over $5 for a latte surely won't want to deal with the presence – and stench – of homeless Joe over in the corner hiding under a urine-soaked blanket as he has a conversation with the voices inside his head.
But this is exactly what Schultz is inviting into his stores with his new "open-door" policy – which Starbucks shareholders, by the way, are sure to disapprove of. It's almost as if Schultz wants the Starbucks company to fold, as no business owner in his right mind would ever want to turn an otherwise successful enterprise into a chain of revenue-killing homeless shelters.
This decisions by Starbucks represents the epitome of liberal insanity. For more similar news, visit Libtards.news.
