    So how is Starbucks saying they want to hire 10,000 immigrants in response to Trump policies. So how is wanting to hire darkies any different that a business who declares they only want to hire white people?

    They didn't say they "only" will hire immigrants now, did they?

    My daughter works there. She brings home all kinds of breakfast sandwiches, coffee, etc. The food is terrible, at least in my opinion. My wife eats some of it, so it's just me.
    I know it has nothing to do with the op, but if they closed, I wouldn't miss them.
    They have a strange symbol on their bags, the logo appears to be some kind of biblical goddess like Diana of the Ephesians. In any event, they are a strange business.
    This hiring practice is world wide, so they may have trouble filling positions in the US now that policy has changed bringing in foreigners.

    Apple's to oranges. Refugees are, by definition, people in need. "Whites" are not.

    Not by definition. Being white doesn't imply being in need; being a refugee does.

    Furthermore, "refugees" aren't a race. So again, apples to oranges.

    How about that Muslim immigrant that had a $70,000 limo Dims torched?

    Also, is it OK to discriminate based upon perceived need? Is discrimination only wrong when it is based upon not being white or straight?

    One sip and you will never be able to stop. You will steal from your mama to be able to afford the next hit.

    Reminds me of the time I drove through a poor section of town. Business everywhere was dead as a door nail, EXCEPT at the local Starbucks where the wait time was an hour for a cup of coffee.

    Trump should have scientists test the coffee to see what is actually in it that is so addictive.
