For the Love of Black Coffee

 

In 2014, a former co-worker wrote in a Facebook post that she wished Hylton was still in the store to help her translate for customers who only spoke Spanish 

 

 

 

I wasn’t gonna even do this but my phone blew up over the last 2 days so here goes.

 

Are we surprised?

Are we shocked that it’s…

A WHITE FEMALE?

Are we surprised that black people will still go there and support this company?

Are we shocked…I’ll stop now.

 

Black people,

Black power isn’t a raised fist.

It’s intra-racial buying power.

When we finally learn this, they’ll go away.

When we spend our (current) TWO TRILLION dollars on each other, they’ll go away.

When we bypass them and look for us, they’ll go away.

When we stop asking them to love us and learn to love ourselves, they’ll go away.

When we channel our energy towards each other in a loving way and stop throwing it away to everyone else, they’ll go away.

 

Boycott these companies and watch them fail like H&M.

 

Pass this on and spread the info.

 

P.S.

 

In case you think whites give a fuck about your feelings:

 

Police officers monitor activity outside as protesters demonstrate inside the Starbucks store where the two men were arrested last Thursday

 

Faithfully guarding their own.
