OK, OK. I am joining the coffee grumps. Coffee, black, no race convo.
I read the Starbucks insert in USA TODAY this past weekend, and frankly, I’m astonished.
Race together? It’s pretty much the same two lanes: black and white.
In an eight-page insert, the first mention of Asian Americans is on page 5.

The answer is: TRUE.
“Asians recently surpassed Latinos as the fastest growing group of new immigrants to the United States.”
Asians are mentioned in the timeline titled, “Path to Progress.”
But as I point out in my column on the aaldef.org/blog, there are some glaring omissions.
Pass the Peet’s. And see my new column on the aaldef.org/blog.
