An article from the blog Afru was circling on social media on Sunday that claimed "drinking coffee perpetuates white supremacy."
According to the article, "Created by Black people for Black people—and now a pillar of white supremacist capitalism. If you consume coffee, you are helping an industry built on racism." End Wokeness tweeted, "Don’t forget that your morning coffee today is racist."
"If you’re a person of color, you know what I’m talking about. You walk into a new coffee shop and your senses are overwhelmed with whiteness and you get the glare from the Karens. The white hipster barista lines herself up between you and the bathrooms, ready to tell you non-customers aren’t welcome," the piece reads.
The article then recounts a joke "white coffee drinkers share when PoC aren’t around" that "there are three things that are necessary in order to make a cup of coffee, and they are: first, a black man to roast the coffee; second, a yellow man to grind it; and third, a white man to drink it."
