Starbucks Stores to Close for Anti-Bias Training
On May 29, Starbucks will close its more than 8,000 stores to provide anti-bias training to 175,000 employees after an incident where two African-American men were arrested at one of the stores last week. The incident, whereby the men were arrested after asking to use the Starbucks restroom, has prompted outrage. After the employee refused them because they had not purchased anything, the men sat down, were asked to leave, and then the police were called. The arrest scene was recorded in a video which has been viewed over 10 million times on Twitter.
