    Starbucks kinda scares me, I don't think you'll ever so many screechy teenage white girls in one place.

    On the bright side, they do have free wifi.

    I've only had it once. Starbucks is good for those who love coffee. I had a sip of coffee recently and hated it.

    **** Starbucks and their pretentious bull**** and their pretentious customers who order pretentious iced caramel lattes with whipped cream and sprinkles. What the **** is that thing anyway, you hosting the Diabetes World Championships or something? Go evade some taxes or something. Oh wait...

    As a fellow black guy I'm slightly uncomfortable by the poshness of your accent. Why are you trying to emulate the way our oppressors speak?


    I'm very anti cultural assimilation, that is, we as black/brown people shouldn't succumb to being pressured to look and speak like our oppressors. For our girls this means not wearing wigs and weaves, for example, instead they should proudly flaunt their natural hair.

    I'm fairly certain that the singular form of Starbucks is still Starbucks; or possibly, Starbeau.

    It's tasteless, the buzz is ineffective, and it costs waaaay too much.

    I just walk in and use the wifi without ordering.

    It's comical that you would question my ethnicity when your whole life is a never ending quest to appealing to our oppressors. I mean you changed the way you to speak in a bid to come across as less threatening. It's no secret that white people stereotype young black men who speak and dress in a certain way with coded labels such as urban and thuggish. I would love to hear how your siblings or even parents sound I bet that there would be a stark difference.
