“The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything,” DePino wrote, tagging Starbucks in her post. “They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing. All the other white ppl are wondering why it’s never happened to us when we do the same thing.”

“What did they do?” asks the man claiming to be the friend of the two men. “What are they getting (arrested) for, just being black men sitting there waiting?”
I think I get it. I think the whole thing was a deliberate act of provocation.

They didn't call the police because the two didn't order anything, but because they were "sitting there waiting" after having been asked to leave (which itself may or may not be justified).  This looked like provocation and I guess it may actually have been. They could as well have ordered while waiting for their friend but refused to do so.

Doesn't this look like a scripted provocation to elicit some negative social media response? This works every time, doesn't it?

Every time.

Every time.
But OTOH, maybe it also depends on the times you are living in. In the seventies people were much more relaxed, I don't think anyone would actually have called the cops on you for refusing to leave if you didn't order anything and they probably wouldn't have asked you to order or leave in the first place as this in itself is not very polite either.

I'm assuming they weren't innocent little angels. Most likely got lippy or threatening.

When black people start getting attitude it's time to call in the cops. They are prone to violent outburts. That's a fact.

I don't know about anyone else but i feel guilty if i am sitting down in a place being social with friends and have not bought anything.
If they wanted to wait they should of waited in their car till their friend came or ordered something like most normal people do....

But as usual the media has turned this into something racist....
Oh how dare whitey call the police on some fine black folks who were just trying to rest and wait for their outstanding citizen friend.
I am sure the employee will be let go for just doing his or her job.

It's not just the media. The media by themselves don't do anything if nobody is there who is writing the stuff.

It was that madam DeNope or what's she called who noted everything carefully down and something video'd the thing (and guess what, most certainly edited it to show only the useful parts).
