Pro-Life Coalition Pens Open Letter to Starbucks on ‘Racial-Bias Education’ Day
“If you think this public relations fix means Starbucks is no longer complicit in racism, it’s time to wake up and smell your own coffee.”
(CLIFTON, VA, MAY 29, 2018-) A coalition of pro-life leaders, led by the grassroots organization ForAmerica, has released an open letter to Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson challenging him to stop donations to Planned Parenthood which takes precious lives away from minority communities and was founded by Margaret Sanger – an outspoken racist.
The open letter signed by L. Brent Bozell III, Alveda King, and more than a dozen pro-life leaders, is being released on the same day that Starbucks is closing for “racial-bias education” training for nearly 175,000 employees nationwide. A portion of the letter reads:
“Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger once said, ‘We do not want word to go out that we want to exterminate the Negro population.’
“In your April statement responding to the arrest of two African-American men sitting in one of your stores, you declared that Starbucks’ “founding values are based on humanity and inclusion.”
“As men and women who fight for the value and dignity of every human life, we ask:
“Where is the ‘humanity’ and ‘inclusion’ when your company matches employees’ donations to Planned Parenthood, whose founder Margaret Sanger was an outspoken racist with genocidal intentions?
“This week, Starbucks is holding ‘racial-bias education’ training for nearly 175,000 employees nationwide.
“If you think this public relations fix means Starbucks is no longer complicit in racism, it’s time to wake up and smell your own coffee.
“Active with the Ku Klux Klan and the eugenics movement, Margaret Sanger’s stated agenda was to eradicate the African American population. Her dream is being realized by the slaughter of minority children today through the horror of abortion.
“With every donation your company gives to Planned Parenthood, the largest single provider of abortions in the United States performing over 300,000 per year, Starbucks is contributing to one of the most racist organizations in our nation’s history.
“… So if Starbucks wants to own the corporate mantle of ending racist business practices, then we challenge you to stop funding Planned Parenthood’s House of Horrors which has taken precious lives away from minority communities; and from society at large.”
