  1. Lots of people, not just the homeless, will be driven away by the sounds of classical music. I’m not one of them. I’ll be driven away by modern pop music. But to play classical music in order to drive away the homeless shows how racist & stupid the managers of 7-Eleven are. Lots of POC, whether they are homeless or not, enjoy the classics.
