Sleight of Cup

20 03 2016


P-D, on the Ferguson Starbucks:

More than 40 percent of Starbucks’ U.S. workforce are minorities, along with about 28 percent of store managers and 18 percent of senior leadership. The U.S. population is about 77 percent white and 13 percent black, according to the U.S. Census.

Sleight of hand, or rather, coffee cup.

Let’s see if you can pick up on the deceit here.  It should be easy.

That’s definitely a sleight, but it’s not the one I noticed.

Starbucks are mainly located in urban areas. In those areas minorities are more than 40% of the population so it is no big deal that Starbuck’s employment represents the local demographics.
