Prepare Your Smartphones For War
#RaceTogether is a minefield filled with short-tempered caffeine deprived customers who consider the concept of patience to be hate-speech rather then a virtue. Then throw in some barbed wired and machine gun nests known as the smart-phone.
Every one has a smart phone these days that can record any conversation – a blessing and a curse. It’s a foregone conclusion that any actual honest dialogue can take place between groups of extremely racially sensitive people. Your words are a tweet away from being broadcast to the dark corners of tumblr dwelling other-kins and SJWs who haven’t forget that people with dissenting opinions are actual humans. Davis Aurini makes a good point about this:
That is just the obvious hindrance. The actual primary problem is that people view this entire idea as less of a conversation and more of a, “I’m mad at your kind of people for these reasons,” lecture. Actual dialogue on a subject so controversial can’t take place in any public setting as you could lose your job.
In fact, it doesn’t actually matter if you are what society considers to be a “racist” or any one of the “ists” these days. Once accused in the public eye – or rather the social media feed – you are guilty until proven innocent which means you are forever guilty on a basic Google search.
The Poor Baristas…
Let’s think about the Baristas for just a second. Not only does #RaceTogether fulfill that old joke about SJWs at liberal arts colleges becoming Baristas, it adds a particular new explosive compound for angry uptight customers to get free beverages and add further misery to the idea of “customer service.”
Perhaps Schultz has been preparing his guinea pigs for these kinds of experiments all along and actually intends to scare off some of his already well-off liberal white types who spend 3k+ on Starbucks a year. After all, how many flak barrages intended to induce white self-loathing can these types endure?
Schultz’s idea will create friendly fire situations and the casualties will be his own fellow ideologues. Think about it, how many of the intended targets – backwater redneck conservative stereotypes – actually frequent Starbucks who aren’t actively boycotting it? That was a rhetorical question.
Despite the backlash and drubbing coming from various sides of the spectrum , some of the mainstream media consider this a great idea. Time Magazine actually proclaimed #RaceTogether as a “brilliant” and “bold move” rather then a kamikaze mission in which allies will have their eco friendly cars sunk. No, this doesn’t make me happy, it makes me sad.
What about the dialogue?
An honest conversation about race will only occur (1) between friends & family with liquor involved and the smartphones put away and (2) when people stop seeing every last damn thing through a racial lens – namely SJWs and many on the left who base their entire identity off race rather then the actual person.
Remember, vast generalizations and labels of people based on their race, ethnicity, and gender are perfectly acceptable as long as it’s the right people. Being judged based on who you are is just too tiresome and isn’t convenient for being a part of the continual victim club.
