Starbucks has been all over the news following the arrest of two black men waiting for a business associate. Since the incident CEO Howard Schultz has been in overdrive to be proactive about making sure the scandal doesn’t destroy their bottom line. Complete with a racial bias shutdown day where most of the stores will be closed to train their employees how to deal with black people.
Through the conflict their is always comedy. So you have to see this hilarious sketch from socialmedian Hotep Jesus where he goes into a Starbucks and demands a free coffee as reparations for slavery…….and he gets it. I simply can’t stop laughing!

The way Becky said
“Not our store”
Like she was not for the #BlackLivesMatter shyts today! All monies is good monies with
Becky Rebecca. So much so that if you say you saw advertisements for reparations then she’s not going to be the one to stand in your way.
Everytime he brought up the racism she was like “Never here. We don’t want no drama. You’re gonna get this free coffee with milk and a smile.”
In turn they taught us a big lesson on franchises and how sometimes what happens in one store doesn’t happen in the next. It’s a big country and blackness nor whiteness are not monolithic.
If Starbucks is willing to give reparations that’s more than the United States has been willing to give.
So in a nation full of Beckies….be a Rebecca!
