One of the biggest viral stories of the week has been an incident that took place in a Philadelphia Starbucks, where two black men were arrested for “loitering while black”, as the media and social justice keyboard warriors have been spinning it.
Considering Starbucks has always been a very good and proper far-left company, it had pretty much everyone pissed off that a manager at one of their locations would hypocritically make such a racist judgment and refuse to let someone use the bathroom or wait for their friends at a table simply due to the color of their skin.
But of course, as is often the case with these high-profile incidents of perceived racism, as the dust settles, it appears there is more to the story.
It is important to note that if any business anywhere is giving preferential treatment to someone based on the color of their skin, this would certainly be wrong and racist and anyone who objected to this kind of treatment would do well to take their business elsewhere.
That being said, if someone is asked to leave a business and they refuse to do so, that business owner has every right to call the police as that is, by the letter of the law, trespassing.
So anyway, let’s talk about this supposedly bigoted manager who asked the gentlemen in question to leave in the first place. She’s being painted as a raging racist, of course, and has been doxed on social media for her involvement in this messy little matter.
However, according to an email Ben Shapiro of the Daily Wire received from a listener who frequents the Philadelphia Starbucks in question, it turns out the SJW cannibalizing one of their own: this manager was an “SJW feminist of the highest order.” Go figure!
“I don’t know what happened last week with the two guys. I wasn’t there. But I highly doubt that she saw the two men and decided to call the police based solely on the fact that they are black,” writes Shapiro’s listener.
“From my observations and interactions with her, I was actually under the impression that Holly is an SJW feminist of the highest order. Once I even overheard her scorn a male barista for not using the proper neutral pronouns with somebody. That’s why this whole situation is so shocking to me! Even though I did not agree with her and all the SJW pins that adorn her beanie, I think calling her a racist all over the news and doxing her name, address, phone, family, etc. is disgusting.”
He goes on to explain that this manager “is not racist and doesn’t deserve what is happening to her here in Philly.” He adds that the patrons of this particular Starbucks locations are “both black and white, and I’ve personally seen Holly give the oh-so-coveted restroom code to both black and white people, patrons and non-patrons. I’ve seen her train both black and white staff members and she has been nothing but nice to everyone, and I’ve never witnessed any racist behavior.”
He also adds that if Holly were truly racist, she’d “have to be on the phone all day calling the cops on every other patron,” due to the diverse population of her patrons, and that “I may not agree with the way she carries herself with the colorful hair and the hippie pins, but I can recognize when someone is doing their job well.”
It has also been reported that Holly had an ongoing problem with loitering, with one patron even chasing her around the Starbucks when she asked them to leave.
In this kind of outrage culture, we will never be able to combat true racism. If everything that ever happens to a person of color is seen as due to racism, then we will never overcome the centuries of oppression that hang over our culture. One thing we can hope for is perhaps Holly, and other SJWs, will smarten up a little bit and realize that the kind of bashing and bullying she’s currently experiencing not the way forward!
