Mina’s World, a cafe in Philadelphia that prided itself in being “Queer-owned,” has officially closed its doors after a woke employee revolt. The cafe was owned by Kate Egghart and Sonam Parikh, two queer activists who started Mina’s in an effort to create an inclusive coffee shop. However, their employees have claimed Egghart and Parikh are anti-black and “gentrifiers.” Gentrifier is a woke term used to describe those who purposely contribute to the displacement of low-income families. Mina’s World was located just around the corner from Malcolm X Park in Philadelphia and employed mostly minority workers.
I read this article and had to keep reminding myself "this is not satire, this is not satire."
I love when people immediately jump to “etc, etc” after providing only a single example. Great way to let us know how empty their minds are.
They’re never happy; there’s never enough for them. I love it when liberals eat their own and end up with nothing.
Seems all of this insanity is used as a cover for messed up screwballs. I.e., rather than confronting their own problems and demons and working on them, the problems with their work, relationships, finances, etc are always the fault of someone else. That's an age old problem for all of humanity (blaming others for your failings and problems) but "intellectuals" and other cultural leaders have *created* and *promoted* this destructive insanity of infinite narcissism, providing the worst screwballs with a vehicle for faux moral and intellectual credibility.
They could have borrowed from Homer Stokes and added the following to their grievences, cronyism, nepotism, racialism and service to the Innarests!
You can't even make this stuff up.
A restaurant owner in the city my restaurant is in, had spent years in Viet Nam learning how to make dumplings and various pastry. She had a very vibrant business, but her crime was being of Nordic descent, right down to her blue eyes and blond hair. Facebook blew up one day accusing her of cultural appropriation, and other bs, and she fell all over herself apologizing, but it did no good. She closed within a month and deprived the community of some amazing VN cuisine.
Frankly, i think they deserve to go under for caving to the socialist labor takeover, but before apologizing they could have put out a video saying they're bringing in a legal arbitrator to hear both sides.
Stop apologizing to fools. clowns, and evil hateful morons
Woke is as woke does
These lunatics waste their entire life playing semantics gymnastics with undefinable nonsense. Then they get angry about being broke loners as if it’s some shock that reality doesn’t reward 99.9% of those who spend their time pontificating about nonsense with friends and riches. Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.
I'm thinking the real "gentrifiers" are the ones' feeding this BS in to people's heads. Probably members of OFA with advanced degrees and dumb as rocks.
Like the French Revolution, the Night of the Long Knives (with Adolph Hitler), Stalin’s purges and Mao’s Red Guards, radicals eventually “eat their own”. And while this is not nearly as bloody, it serves as a reminder to those who espouse “woke” ideology. At some point, the movement will pass by you and your ideology and then you will be the object of scorn, ridicule or worse by others who think that you are a “re-visionist”. But until that time, rock on.
worse thing about it is that mealy mouthed apology to satisfy the assholes. Always falls on deaf ears and humiliates the (in their foolish minds) well intentioned woke fools who comply with their sicko enemies. You can't ever satisfy the insane left.
This, my friends, is called poetic justice.
I think it is beyond the simplicity of a mob. The demise of this business was clearly planned by the Black & Brown Cooperative which is a Marxist group. That these owners went willingly to the chopping block is a sad harbinger. As Marxist groups grow larger, they have more power to demand that they become owners in a 'cooperative' arrangement, driving out private capital. It is hard to effectively run a business so the 'cooperative' fails. Then the workers have nothing. And, we cannot buy good coffee.
The revolution always eats its own children...
How is that mug even racist though? And rip to what seemed like a spot enjoyed by a lot. It's a shame when even your woke comrades turn on you. I hope these owners use this as a learning experience that wokeness and cancel culture are toxic and have grave consequences
