A truly hilarious commentary on the Starbucks initiative to discuss race, from Saturday Night Live. Thanks to elissa for the tip.

  1. By the way? I went to a Starbucks during their big Race Discussion Initiative, twice, and nobody said a word about race.

    Americans tend to be sensible about such ridiculous ideas coming from the elite.

  2. i did not go to starbucks during the RDI

    i don’t wanna go back there

    they make me uncomfortable it’s like going to brunch in Atlanta

    if i gotta have coffee there’s plenty of other places you know

    places where i feel safe and welcome

  3. Yeah, what plays in Seattle does not play in Broadview, Illinois. Do they even have black people in Seattle?

  4. I didn’t go to Starbucks during the BRDI dealio, either.

    Mostly cuz Starbucks won’t fill my fill my mammoth Racetrack travel mug.

    I do often go to Autozone for car parts and various solvents and such.

    Those Pep Boys guys get on my nerves when they want to lecture me about how gender is just a social construct.

  5. re #3: yepp, plenty of black people in Seattle. Empire Way was renamed to Martin Luther King Way in 1984 :)
    Seriously, lots of different races and sub-races in Seattle. Not just blacks from America , also Somalians. Not just Mexicans , also Ecuadorians. And don’t even start with SouthEast Asians.

    Seattle is quite the melting pot – or tossed salad. What it does not have a lot of is interracial strife, the races keep the crimes among themselves. There is a lot of interracial couples.

  6. Wow! Seattle sounds so diverse! I bet white people that live in Seattle all have like 3 black friends. But also Latino friends and trans friends and foreign friends. I bet they’re enlightened to speak different languages too.

    So many Americans think they can get away with just speaking English!

  7. I met a black person one time and we had like a conversation and all. Why can’t we be friends?

  8. He came out of the room, his face twisted with emotion. Tears were streaming down his cheeks. “It’s a boy! It’s a boy!”, he half-shouted, half-gasped out. It was a hotel in Bangkok.

  9. I don’t like paying $5 for burnt coffee. Plus, I carry a gun, so Starbucks doesn’t want my business anyway.

  10. Wow! Seattle sounds so diverse! I bet white people that live in Seattle all have like 3 black friends.

    I bet melanin-deprived Seattleites even gladly and nonchalantly hang out in the part of town where the local major street is named for Martin Luther King!

  11. That video made me feel unsafe.

  12. That term “pep boys” is a trigger, daley. And a microaggression.

    There needs to be a safe space nearby.
