An executive of Dunkin’ Brands, the parent company of coffee shop chain Dunkin’ Donuts and ice cream chain Baskin Robbins, refused to make selling morning goodies and evening treats political Monday.
“We are not Starbucks, we aren’t political,” Dunkin’ VP of product Drayton Martin reportedly said at the 2019 International Trademark Association meeting.
Starbucks has a history of designing cups to start cultural and political conversations, and has been known to bend a knee to the social justice mob.
“We don’t want to engage you in political conversation, we want to get you in and out of our store in seconds. It’s donuts & ice cream – just be happy,” Martin said.
Her statements were confirmed by numerous attendees via Twitter.
“Dunkin isn’t Starbucks, they don’t want to start a conversation on their cups. They want you in and out in a minute and twenty seconds. Have conversations with your friends; Dunkin isn’t your friend. (This is such a New England attitude, I love it.),” attendee Stacey Lantagne said.

Starbucks, on the other hand, prides itself on its involvement in leftist politics. It put its employees through “racial bias” training last year, closing hundreds of corporate stores for an entire day.
Big League Politics reported:
In a move that is sure to enrage shareholders, Starbucks is closing all of its company-owned stores on May 29 to teach it employees “racial bias training.”
The company said that the training will address implicit racial bias in hopes of preventing discrimination.
The announcement follows negative press garnered by the company after two black men were arrested for sitting inside a Philadelphia store without purchasing anything.
But, as Big League Politics reported, the allegations of racial discrimination against the company are unfounded. The men were trespassing, were asked to leave, and refused. Only then were the police called.
The Philadelphia Police Commissioner, who is black, backed his officers, saying that they carried out their legal duty with professionalism. Worth noting, the Chief of Police in Philadelphia is Charles H. Ramsey, also a black man.

Dorn, a 77-year old retired St. Louis police officer, was shot and murdered outside of Lee’s Pawn and Jewelry on Monday night, in a crime that was captured on Facebook live. He had been a friend of the businesses’ owner and arrived on scene as rioting overwhelmed Saint Louis to secure the premises.
The video released by the Saint Louis police department features seven different suspects. They’re all wearing some form of face masks- conveniently shielding their identity, perhaps on the grounds of the coronavirus epidemic. At least two of the persons of interest can be seen holding guns as they enter the pawn shop to engage in looting.
A funding appeal to raise money for Dorn’s funeral expenses has gathered donations from across the country, with many outraged at the hypocrisy of race rioters claiming that they’re protesting the death of a black man going on to murder another one.
As of Friday, the memorial fund has raised more than $300,000. Dorn’s wife is still an employee of the St. Louis police department.
Law enforcement continues to actively investigate the circumstances which led to Dorn’s death.
