    Plus you have no idea if that’s all they did. They could have asked them to buy something after ten minutes and he told hem to fuck off.

    It's actually pretty common for people to hang out and not buy anything. The problem is if the Star Bucks is in a busy location those people would be occupying up space and hurting the business.

    I have no issue with this.

    If only my local McDonalds would call the cops on the hordes of teens who loiter. So okay they were waiting for a friend, I say tough shit I really do. Wait outside until your pal comes or order something when inside, something small to drink/nibble on till your friend comes.



    As for 'this only happened because they were black' well...maybe, but I would go one further and say this only happened because they were black males in their prime years (anything from 15-45 is game).

    This is a ageism and sexism issue to. Serious. Groups of young men are more likely to have people on edge and be 'suspected'.

    Two middle aged, or even elderly black women would be less likely to be asked to leave.

    It looks like the CEO is full in damage control mode. He'll probably cut them a nice check in turn for a positive statement. This doesn't set a very good precedent though. People shouldn't get rewarded for not following directions.

    Even if the store manager was 100% right in this situation she will probably still lose her job on the grounds that the corporation doesn't want to appear racist. The word racist is basically the new N-word for white people.

    That being said, if in fact this lady was a down to the bone racist and just didn't want black people in her store, then I hope she loses her job. I just find that hard to believe, seeing as coffee shops are usually very liberal places.

    effin wrong! You can't say "you know this, you know that". You got a cystal ball or something?

    I myself used to be a 13 year old trouble maker. I got asked to leave many public places for just loitering. Laundry mats, McDonalds, Dairy Queens just to name a few. And you know what I did? I LEFT!

    They had a valid reason to be there, they were waiting for a friend, who did show up. After the manager asked them to leave and they explained they were waiting for a friend, they may have thought that explanation was enough and would not have assumed they still needed to leave.

    Maybee @panamaican might know about the legal aspects
    Does a manager or store employee have the right to ask someone to leave without a valid reason? A store is not a private home, it is a venue that invites in the public.

    The right has been into identity politics for a hell of a lot longer. What do you think the "Southern Strategy" is . What do you think Trump was doing when he pandered to White Nationalists. What do you think Segregation was and the response from social / Christian conservatives.

    But what if you are going to order something when your friend shows up. These guys weren't homeless people just sitting there, they waited for a friend, who did show up.

    Well maybe the term "hoodrat" is with regards to how they decide to act within society which according to you, seems to be slightly "off" the norm.

    As you said, when faced with the same situation, you seem to be polite and non combative enough to have either bought something or left the store...where as they felt entitled to defy the manager of the establishment and carry on by their own rules.

    I wouldn't call that a hoodrat though, I'd call that an asshole.

    Thats because white males in their 30s tend to buy coffee and not simply hang around caffes without buying shit.

    I googled the right to refuse service and a company or buisness absolutely has that right provided they are consistent regardless of race or relligion or sex.

    So unless you can prove that they are not asking anyone else not black who is loitering to leave, you don't have a leg to stand on.

    And since that wouldn't be common knowledge...if someone asks you to leave...you fucking leave.
