Starbucks is opening its first cafe in Ferguson

Starbucks is opening its first cafe in Ferguson, Missouri. It is contracting with local and minority firms. It is teaming up with a local non-profit.

Starbucks certainly has the best of intentions.

What the actual results will be will up to the people who live in the community.

Will they treat this Starbucks the same way that people in most neighborhoods treat their local Starbucks?

Or, will they smash the windows, loot it, and burn it down?

Only time will tell.
