Starbucks To Close 8,000 U.S. Stores For One Afternoon For Racial-Bias Training

4

Starbucks Corp will close 8,000 company-owned U.S. cafes for the afternoon on May 29 so 175,000 employees can undergo racial tolerance training in response to protests and calls for boycotts after the arrest of two black men waiting in a Philadelphia store.

The company said in the Tuesday announcement that it will also provide training materials for non-company workers at the roughly 6,000 licensed Starbucks cafes that will remain open in locations such as grocery stores and airports.

The announcement from world’s biggest coffee company comes as it tries to cool tensions after the Philadelphia incident last week sparked accusations of racial profiling at the chain, which is the subject of a boycott campaign on social media. Read more at REUTERS.

  1. Political correctness run amok.
    I saw a link on the Drudge Report that had a video of a black man going into a Starbucks store and demanding from the young white girl behind the counter a free cup of coffee as reparations. She was completely guillibe and gave it to him. It’s actually a very funny video. The man didn’t even seem to mean it. It was all a shtick, but you see how far white guilt has taken some of us.

  2. Hopefully Starbucks will choke on their own liberal vomit. Notice how liberal corporations are developing financial troubles after putting ideology before business, such as Macy’s, Target and ToysRus.

  3. it could of been YOU arrested for being Jewish !!!! it is no different. these black customers did absolutely nothing wrong to deserve to be arested.. other than they’re skin is black. they are respected businessmen – real estate developers. try going to the deep south with your peias and tzisis hanging out. it can happen to you… too..,.. remember that Jews were very comfortable in Germany…. what happened to them? it starts with blacks and ends with Jews.. yes right here in the USA.. stop being total fools… this from a super conservative !!!!!!!!
