Local Cafe Takes on "Anti-Woke" Warrior

11/09/2021

Bristol 247 reports that a speciality coffee shop on Bristol's Broad Street has responded eloquently to a reviewer who took to the internet to attack the shop's inclusive policies, and particularly, Black Lives Matter, a poster for which is in the shop window. Full Court Press is a coffee shop at 59 Broad Street, close to St Nicholas Markets and enjoys a lively trade of aficionados of quality coffee. The shop says on its website “Speciality coffee shouldn't be for the few, those who are “in the know” or coffee connoisseurs. It is to be shared by all, irrespective of race, creed, gender identity, ability or how one defines oneself.” In response to the one star review, the proprietor wrote “’ll direct you to consider doing some more reading around the concepts of Marxism (I’d start with Das Kapital, which is a socioeconomic treatise on the ownership of the means of production and its effects) and racism as you are clearly mistaking them with current extreme ideologies from the right wing side of the political spectrum”.
