    Like damn, Starbucks would be well within their rights to walk up to any patron who hasn't purchased anything and ask them to leave, but to skip that step and call the cops is super dirty.
     
  3. I swear if they're being charged for loitering

    You can "wonder why it's not happening to us" but in fact you already know.

    Its a self-reflecting meme. "_______while black". Add anything to it, even self-driving cars, and it'll have different results.

    But you're in the know, right?

    My wife manages a Starbucks: we have no idea if these individuals have been asked to leave MANY times before. She literally had drug dealers camped in her location dealing. Shes been hit by customers. Shes found dead bodies in the bathroom. Shes had 50 different types of other crazies and homeless and stalkers and angry ex-employees and rich entitled white people and every other horror story in the book that she has called the cops on repeatedly. We have no idea the back story here.

    But yeah, this seems like a blatant way of claiming Starbucks as a "white space." The company really needs to work on changing its corporate image.

    That is fucking terrible. Could have just told them politely to buy something small at least or to wait outside if it was that big of a deal. Those young men got caught up in some bullshit for absolutely no reason at all.

    I just tagged my pastor to this. He's black.

    He writes his sermons on Tuesday nights at Starbucks. He's there till midnight every time. His (white) wife stays up worried about him every time, too.

    I told him to make sure he pays the BLACK TAX so I don't see him trending on Twitter.

    How long where they there? Over an hour? I mean, the place doesn't even seem busy.

    Pretty sure I could sit in my Starbucks for about an hour before someone even said anything, but I don't live in America so

    Well to be fair there are 2 black officers there arresting them, so it is a bit confusing, although ultimately if I had to geuss I'm betting the guy/girl who called the cops probably wasn't black, why they didn't just go over and say you have to order something, stupid, racist, who knows. Bizarre situation.

    I can’t tell which is worse at this point. The same sarcastic race comments or the people replying to said comments by dog-piling with faux rage/in hopes mods will see them. There is a report button now. Use it if you think it’s warranted.

    Yikes.

    Anyways Starbucks is an overpriced mess.

    Dammit I'm never ordering Starbucks again. What's another coffee I chain I can go to that doesn't do this bullshit? White people do this all the time and don't go to jail for it. This happened on the same day it was revealed a black kid almost got killed for asking for help. FML...

    Shoulda bought a coffee. I hate sitting down in Starbucks, anytime I pass by white people is camped out and just chilling like it’s something to do.
     
  38. Cause as a white person who has chilled in Starbucks without even ordering a water this has never happened to me.

    Comfy place, free Wi-Fi, they are everywhere, and its easy to say meet me at the Starbucks at X and Y. See ya in 30.

    Holy fucking shit. Not saying I don't believe you, but what the hell is happening in that bathroom? D:

    And yeah, quit the dogpiling. If they guy did a dumb sarcastic comment or is serious, I don't need to read the "u srs" replies or whatever, it's not adding anything to the thread, use the report button like rude says.

    I think trespassing would be the appropriate charge when someone has a prior ban from a business and returns. Assuming that's actually what happened, who knows.

    • User warned: Ignoring context given in OP and arguing in bad faith.
    The only real backstory is that people saw them just sitting there. Sure, they didn't do anything. But my wife has called the police on people who are just sitting there because they've previously been banned for things they did before. So people seeing that didn't know why they were being taken out by the cops then either.
