So if Starbucks existed back in Nazi Germany do you reckon they would ban Jews from their store?
My guess is yes they would. Anything to make a buck or two.
Now if you think they are simply sensitive to certain cultures, if memory serves they derided Christians for being offended at the artistic nature of their cups recently.
Whodey, a racist white American, does *not* have to go far back in time or place
(Why the Third Reich rather than the USA?) to find racist exclusion in public places.
Until a few decades ago, many public places (restaurants, hotels) in the United States
excluded non-white people. Few right-wing white Americans objected to that exclusion.
Indeed, at RHP there evidently are several right-wing whites (not all Americans) who
still loudly support the 'right' of American businesses to practice invidious discrimination
against minorities such as non-white people or non-heterosexual people.
It's characteristically hypocritical of racist white Americans to complain about anti-Jewish
exclusion in Germany from 1933 to 1945 while ignoring or condoning the blatant
exclusion of non-white people in the United States long after Hitler had died.
