    Oh what the fudge ever. I mean, their were loitering and asked to leave by both management and then the police and they refused. For the love of all that is holy, why boycott it?

    Because, we live now in time of the great outrage....Everything must be a commentary on social behavior, and racism....

    I don't go to Starbucks but I can't fault people for standing up and questioning why they are the only ones being singled out for a supposed policy that wasn't being enforced on other people in the place doing the exact same thing.

    Capitalism only really works if people vote with their wallets. It's high time people started actually started doing that, and that can only happen with the dissemination of information about what businesses do and do not do, and the ability to unify to actually have a tangible effect. You may not agree with the reasons behind the boycott, but as a left libertarian surely you should recognize the necessity of boycotts for capitalism to not go unchecked? Celebrate it.

    Didn't see too many people in that Starbucks....So, don't know why they had a problem with the men waiting for their friend, but I find it totally ironic that such a socially progressive establishment as Starbucks is now under fire by the terminally offended progressive left....
