    Yes, can I get a venti No Chai Left Behind? Oh wait, make that a grande Mocha Luther King.

    It was recently announced that Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz is encouraging the chain's baristas to talk about race with their customers.

    It's an initiative called "Race Together," and so far it's confusing a lot of people.

    Almost immediately after, Twitter had a ball highlighting the absurdity in the campaign with the hilarious hashtag #NewStarbucksDrinks. Here are 19 of the best ones.

    "I feared for my safe-Tea" #NewStarbucksDrinks

    But it looks like Starbucks' commitment to talking about race only goes so far, seeing as how their senior vice president of global communications deleted his Twitter account after being questioned about the campaign on social media.

    The senior vice president of @Starbucks global communications, Corey duBrowa, deleted his twitter to avoid talking about race #RaceTogether

    @brokeymcpoverty yes & locked his IG. He doesn't want to have a convo abt race but wants us to have one w/ a barista

    Oh well!
