Former Obama Attorney General, Eric Holder, has been named as one of the ‘educators’ for Starbucks’ upcoming racial-bias education program for over 175,000 employees.

Yes, the man who hasn’t found a race card he’s unwilling to use will be training baristas on how to identify “implicit bias, promote inclusion and help prevent discrimination.”

I guess if anyone can identify racial bias, it’d be the man who operated the Justice Department under Obama by using it as much as possible. He’ll simply need to look in the mirror to find examples.

Starbucks announced their ‘Racial-Bias Education Day’ after an incident involving two African-American men having the police called on them by an employee when they refused to leave a store. They had requested use of the restroom but were denied because they hadn’t made a purchase.

As a result, over 8,000 stores will be closed on May 29 to conduct the training.

“Closing our stores for racial bias training is just one step in a journey that requires dedication from every level of our company and partnerships in our local communities,” CEO Kevin Johnson said in a statement.

According to an NBC News report, the company is working with individuals from the Anti-Defamation League, the NAACP Legal Defense and Education Fund, and the Equal Justice Initiative, and have tapped Holder to join the training.

Holder helped stoke the fires in Ferguson, Missouri when investigating the police department for the shooting of Michael Brown. He pointed to the department as a whole for allegedly engaging in “racist comments or gender discrimination, demonstrating grotesque views and images of African Americans in which they were seen as the ‘other.'”

He implemented programs throughout police forces in America that targeted ‘unconscious bias’ and branded law enforcement as racist by setting up an Obama-era directive known as “racial justice.”

He would also accuse Americans who opposed he and Obama’s policies as being flat-out racist.

“There’s a certain level of vehemence, it seems to me, that’s directed at me [and] directed at the president,” Holder said on ABC News in 2014. “You know, people talking about taking their country back … There’s a certain racial component to this for some people. I don’t think this is the thing that is a main driver, but for some there’s a racial animus.”

This is the guy Starbucks wants training their employees? A man who believes any bad thing that happens to himself or any person of color is due to racism?

Perhaps it shouldn’t be a surprise. This is, after all, the same company who previously pledged to hire Muslim ‘refugees’ over American veterans.
