Queer-owned business shut down by employees for not being woke enough

Mina’s World, a cafe in Philadelphia that prided itself in being “Queer-owned,” has officially closed its doors after a woke employee revolt. The cafe was owned by Kate Egghart and Sonam Parikh, two queer activists who started Mina’s in an effort to create an inclusive coffee shop. However, their employees have claimed Egghart and Parikh are anti-black and “gentrifiers.” Gentrifier is a woke term used to describe those who purposely contribute to the displacement of low-income families. Mina’s World was located just around the corner from Malcolm X Park in Philadelphia and employed mostly minority workers.

Ironically— prior to the allegations from employees—Parikh spoke to Bon Appetit about the opening of Mina’s World and said when she worked at different coffee shops, “white ownership neglected to protect their Black and trans employees. I knew there needed to be a space where you could have an amazingly made cup of coffee that’s not whitewashed.”

Read the rest of the article. The allegations are priceless.

    From the article: "No matter how much of an “ally” you are, you will never be safe from becoming just another trophy head on the wall of wokeism." Ha, when you surround yourself or hire the eternally offended it will be just a matter of time before you are labelled an offender. Also, if you hire communists it will be only a matter of time before they demand a "fair share" distribution of your business. They all must be Democrats (Neo Communists).

      I’m kinda thinking they’re something worse than Democrats. Like a science experiment that’s run amok. Mary Shelley’s “Frankenstein’s Monster”. They created this......phenomenon. It makes sense that it would devour them first due to proximity.
      I can’t wait until the scarcity mindset kicks in and all the limousine liberals start getting the crap beat out of them.
      Is that a form a coercion? Yes...
      Am I participating in it? No...
      Am I going to laugh my ass off? You Betcha! And point too!
      I hope the supply shortages don’t encompass Popcorn because I’m going to need a lot of it as this saga plays out.
      Pretty sure Galt took some joy in watching everything grind to a halt.

        Yeah, and one of the most famous "limousine liberals" was F. D. Roosevelt. I think he was a power-lusting hypocrite. (I suppose it is unchivalrous to trash the dead, but I think there should be exceptions in the case of those who have been crammed down our throats.)

    I see this post has garnered some downvotes. Just so everyone understands “Queer” is no longer a pejorative. In fact according to www.gaycenter.org the Q in LGBTQ+ etc means “Queer or Questioning”. And it is exactly how the owners of the coffee shop identify themselves. Otherwise, like all LibsofTikTok stuff, she’s just laying the facts out there and letting them speak for themselves.
