Despite the relentless online ridicule over its “Race Together” initiative encouraging baristas to talk to customers about race, Starbucks has apparently taken its efforts one step further.
Several Twitter users claimed on Friday that a “race relations reality check” quiz is now being made available to customers. TheBlaze TV’s Dana Loesch first brought attention to the quiz, which she also referred to as a “are you a racist?” quiz.

Starbucks has also seemingly teamed up with USA Today to promote the "Race Together" campaign. In fact, the coffee giant has an entire landing page on USAToday.com dedicated to the topic, which includes yet another race quiz, titled "How much of what you know about race is true?"
Some of the questions include, "How much of the nation's wealth is controlled by white people?" and "Over the past 20 years, the rates at which blacks both commit and are victims of homicide have shown sharper declines than those of whites," a true or false question.
Starbucks to confirmed to TheBlaze in an email that the company "will include the Race Together special insert and conversation guide," which includes the "race relations reality check" quiz, starting on Friday.
