Apparently some guy wrote a post criticizing the new wave of young, socially conscious entrepreneurs. Called them boo-zhee.

Told them to quit opening “radical” coffee shops in poor neighborhoods and start opening something useful, like laundromats.

Here’s what I think he ought to do:

Put away the vinegar.

Quietly open his own laundromat in a poor neighborhood.

Write a positive post about the positive impact he is making.

Serve up some honey and inspire some flies.
