I find it interesting that you automatically assumed that this store policy was a “Black or Brown”…

Michael Clancy thanks for commenting. I don’t think SweetGreen’s intention was ever to limit their offerings to black or brown folks. I do however see this as a prime example of a company seeking to innovate and “do good” overlook some of the unintended consequences of a policy that never intended to do harm. Getting a debit card seems like any easy task for you and I, but without assistance and guidance can be a taller hill to climb for several marginalized communities. Thanks for you comment and for contributing to the conversation.
