TO THE EDITOR:
The Meantime Coffee Co. has displayed an inadequate response to the Board of Governors’ litigation ban and the university’s decision to not remove Silent Sam while enjoying increased profits from the UNC boycott.
The Meantime’s management is unwilling to publicly state any substantial criticism of either the BOG or university administration but uses their affiliation with the Campus Y to propagate a facade of social justice.
The cafe’s connection to work that helps elevate marginalized groups is limited to its location on campus.
Management has not acknowledged that they financially benefit from the current boycott, nor have they pledged to direct this increase in revenue to causes or organizations that combat discrimination and inequality.
