Another Reason to Boycott Starbucks
Permalink  
 


My niece works at Starbucks Central in Seattle doing something for a couple years
now. So my Xmas gift from her was a 1LB bag of "Christmas Blend" whole bean coffee
made with "Rare Aged Sumatra" beans. I drink exclusively Sumatra coffee for last couple
years as the old standby "Columbian Supremo" kept getting hard to find in the bins.
If you want a powerful/flavorful cup of coffee in the morning to get your system activated
you cant go wrong with Sumatra coffee. Cant wait to open this Christmas Blend and make a cup.

They've faded into the background... Pun intended, get it? But all of a sudden Starbucks is in the news. Again. And it really ain't good news!

What the fuck is wrong with these lily-white assholes, that they're afraid of anybody that isn't white? Christallfuckinmighty! Get over yourselves snowflakes... Brothers, and sisters don't need more of your hate bullshit. And Starbucks, you've added fuel to the fire, and another reason to boycott your stores, businesses, and your products!

Fuck you Starbucks! https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/business/wp/2018/04/15/two-black-men-were-arrested-waiting-at-a-starbucks-now-the-company-police-are-on-the-defensive/?utm_term=.85b7030e81e3

And shame on your entire entity! My convictions are stronger now than ever, against your shit!

Coffee must carry cancer warning, California judge rules

Bad news, coffee drinkers: A California judge has ruled that coffee companies across the state will have to carry a cancer warning label because of a carcinogen that is present in the brewed beverage.
Superior Court Judge Elihu Berle sided with a nonprofit's case against dozens of coffee companies, including Starbucks, Peets and other chains, saying that businesses that sold coffee were in violation of a state regulation requiring businesses with at least 10 employees to disclose the prevalence of carcinogens and toxic chemicals.
While plaintiff offered evidence that consumption of coffee increases the risk of harm to the fetus, to infants, to children and to adults, defendants medical and epidemiology experts testified that they had no opinion on causation, Berle wrote. Defendants failed to satisfy their burden of proving by a preponderance of evidence that consumption of coffee confers a benefit to human health.

Acrylamide is a known carcinogen that is produced naturally during the process of baking or frying some foods. It is produced in coffee beans when they are roasted, and is prevalent in brewed cups.

Berles ruling, which was reported by the Associated Press, noted that neither side disputed that acrylamide is present in coffee. He wrote that the defendants had failed to show that it posed no risk or added any health benefits to coffee at all. According to the Associated Press, the defense was burdened with showing that acrylamide in coffee wouldn't cause one or more cases of cancer for every 100,000 people, but the judge said that the risk had not been properly evaluated.
The case was filed nearly eight years ago; Berles ruling is tentative, but is unlikely to be reversed. The third phase of the trial will determine the civil penalties that coffee companies are liable for.
In addition to the warning signs likely to result from the lawsuit, the Council for Education and Research on Toxics, which brought the lawsuit, has asked for fines as much as $2,500 for every person exposed to the chemical since 2002, potentially opening the door to massive settlements. Starbucks is the lead defendant in the case; others like 7-Eleven have already settled. Starbucks did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Starbucks. WTF? You're not allowed to wait on a friend inside their paranoid cafes? They might think on posting signs that say "If you ain't white, we don't need your bizness! Go to that other coffee joint down the street!"

Cock suckers! This racial bias, and outright apartheid mentality demonstrated by Starbucks employees. It is reminiscent of Jim Crow laws enforced by police during the last two centuries!

We ain't goin' back there! This is 2018, fire those employees Starbucks! Apologies are worthless after the fact!

Sorry guys, this shit (racial bias, and discrimination) just grates on me. By now you'd think, as a nation where everybody is part of the solution, and not furthering those biases! But my hope is America CAN one day be the nation where every person is equal, and no-one is superior to another.

Martin's Dream!
