Starbucks CEO Wants 'Unconscious Bias' Training For Employees

Videos of 2 black men arrested at Philadelphia Starbucks draw outrage

The Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson has condemned the incident that occurred in Philadelphia. But the Starbucks manager at the Philadelphia coffee shop said that per their store policy they could not, since they didn't buy anything, and asked them to leave.

It's not always clear whether sitting in a Starbucks or using a Starbucks restroom without purchasing any items is allowed.

Ross said officers "politely" asked the men to leave multiple times before the arrests.

But she did explain that patrons at Starbucks are expected to make a purchase in order to sit down, be in the lobby and use the restrooms. Populations density plays a part too - it's a little easier for people to wait unnoticed inside a more crowded Starbucks in a place like New York City without paying and than it is in sparser locations where policies can be enforced more strictly.

Starbucks, which was once ridiculed for urging its employees to write "Race Together" on coffee cups to start a national conversation on race relations, has found itself through the looking glass: under fire for its treatment of black people.

The next chant began, "Anti-blackness anywhere is anti-blackness everywhere!" South Texas Money Management Ltd. increased its position in Starbucks by 0.3% in the 2nd quarter.

"When do we want it?" Starbucks said its US company-owned stores and corporate offices will be closed on the afternoon of May 29 for the training, which will eventually be incorporated into the instruction process for all newly hired employees.

"Our store manager never intended for these men to be arrested and this should never have escalated as it did". The manager then called 911 for assistance, as reported by the Washington Post. Video footage of their arrest has since gone viral. It also apologizes to the company's other customers as well.

It's common for officers to respond to reports that someone won't leave a business, he said, adding that, typically, the person or people leave before police get there or when they arrive. "Even if they did not have a discriminatory motive, you're still going to open yourself up to liability when you do things like that". "I'd like to have a dialogue with them". "That's just keeping it simple". Video of the arrest posted to Twitter now has more than 2 million views and has also prompted an internal investigation by the Philadelphia Police Department.

According to an article by Fox News, the manager who called police because the men, "were allegedly trespassing in the store reportedly left the company Monday". Ben Waxman, a spokesman for the District Attorney's Office, said prosecutors at the charging unit made the ultimate decision not to press charges based on a lack of evidence.

When Camille Hymes, a regional vice president for the coffee behemoth, asked to speak to protesters in the store Monday, she was rebuffed.

After the sit-in, the protesters moved on to the Starbucks location at 15th and Latimer, which they entered and reiterated their demands.
