Diversity Is What Starbucks Decides It Is

Paul Jacob, in a Common Sense commentary writes about David Boaz’s article in the Wall Street Journal (available at the Cato Institute) which describes the effort to obtain a customized Starbucks card with the phrase “laissez-faire” printed on it.

The request was rejected. But the socialist slogan “people not profits” was accepted by Starbucks, as was the United Farm Workers slogan “Si Se Puede.” (“Yes we can,” adopted by Barack Obama’s presidential campaign.)

Here’s what you find if you read Starbuck’s mission statement: “Embrace diversity as an essential component in the way we do business.”

It seems that some political ideas are more “diverse” than others.
