Starbucks and the Bizarre #RaceTogether

Starbucks Has an Awkward Plan to Heal Race Relations in America

It's called #RaceTogether—because, I guess, we're all racing together, and um, wordplay.

If customers inquire about what #RaceTogether means, he says they should strike up a conversation about American racial inequality.
