The casual snootiness of white people....

These were white people doing BS burger-flipper level jobs.. yet they needed to push around another white person (gawd help him if he had been brown or asian) who couldn't take care of himself.

A video has captured the moment a homeless man was asked to leave a branch of Starbucks after a member of the public bought him some food.

Sajid Kahloon, a business owner in Southend-on Sea, Essex, bought the homeless man a meal worth 8.45 after he spotted the man looking hungry and "searching for food".

Mr Kahloon confronted staff after they asked the homeless man to leave the premises - despite eating a sandwich and chocolate cake that had been paid for in-store.

Starbucks said in an official statement: "We want every customer to have a positive experience, and we apologise that we did not meet that expectation in this instance. The interaction on video is not indicative of the environment we strive to create." (sure sure... never been to a Starbucks... sounds like a BS place anyway)

I don't know about UK Starbucks but in the US they aren't supposed to kick anyone out, even if they don't purchase anything.

My son had to sit through a whole day of training on it after 2 black guys had the cops called on them in philly.

I mean, the largest Empire in the history of the world... they lost it all because they were snooty.

Some habits die hard I guess.... maybe the snobbishness will go away after they lose Scotland...

Indeed it is GOATSHART.

It's a hell of a lot more than what you ever did for your fellow man.

They'll never lose Scotland... however they WILL loose half of Ireland due to Brexit...

As for the vid... Notice their furniture is on the sidewalk... a commons area... anyone can sit down there for ANY reason... also notice that they never actually get around to calling a Constable... because they know they are in the wrong... still they were hoping he wouldn't fight back.

Didn't expect someone would stand up for him.

I knew this wasn't London because they would stand up and kick the bloody ------ out of both of them like he was a football hooligan in a Manchester United football tournament.

In private, white UK subjects usually refer to ----- and others as WOGS.

A WOG is used as an insulting and contemptuous term for a dark-skinned foreigner and especially for one from the Middle East or Far East.

Just to complete your mental picture of what these two employees were saying when they re-entered StarBucks with the tails between their legs...

Never.

Pak are called '----'. But no longer to their face.

WOG (not used much anymore, I think) was for people of darker skin, specially those with curly hair (not asian). WOGS were supposed to have curly hair. Usually African or Arab/Jewish.

WOG as I understand it, comes from the Golliwog Doll.

It's meant for black people.

WOG is a sailor that hasn't had their shell back initiation.

In America you get food to eat
Don't have to run throught the jungle and scuff up your feet.
Sing about Jesus and drink wine all day
Come along little wog sail away with me

So according to Randy Newman Tremain is right

May I have your attention please!

There has been a GOATSHART sighting.... we believe he is headed this way to destroy another thread with his GOAT-SHARTS.

Keep your heads down and continue pedaling! Show no fear! GOATSHARTS are nothing to be afraid of if you stick together!

So according to Randy Newman Tremain is right

I'm always right, dude.

Notice the difference between this Pakistani dude and someone like GOATSHART.

On one side it's "WE" (even though the other guy was not of his race, religion or nationalty)... and on the other side it's "ME ME ME GOAT ME ME I I TROLL ME ME ME SHART SHART SHART ME ME....WHAT ABOUT ME!!!"

Jesus wept....

Allah's religion... whether you call it Christianity or Islam... is all about WE and US and OUR.

Not ME or MINE.

THAT is the whole point of it all!

If you can't get THAT through your head you are most likely a DOTARDIST and will surely rot in pedo-HELL.
