Do we have Starbucks here?
Yeah. Don't leave your car too long at a set of traffic lights or it will have a bloody Starbucks in it before you pull off.

They are now building them and seeking retrospective planning.

I'm no expert But Their coffee tastes burnt.

Starbucks says it will close its 8,000 company-owned stores in the United States for one afternoon to educate employees about racial bias.

The announcement follows an uproar over the arrest of two black men who were waiting for a friend at a Philadelphia Starbucks last week. The store manager called the police.

The racial bias training will be provided on May 29 to about 175,000 workers.

"I've spent the last few days in Philadelphia with my leadership team listening to the community, learning what we did wrong and the steps we need to take to fix it," Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson said in a statement.

"While this is not limited to Starbucks, we're committed to being a part of the solution," he said. "Closing our stores for racial bias training is just one step in a journey that requires dedication from every level of our company and partnerships in our local communities."

If these guys had left when they were asked by the staff then the police would not have been called, if they had left when the police asked them to, they would not have been arrested.

No they don't have the right to discriminate against people on the grounds of race, that's against federal civil rights laws in the US. And if you read your own link you'll find the employee who refused access to the pregnant woman was in the wrong too according to Starbucks.

Of course they should, it is nice that you speak for millions of people internationally and can say everyone who uses Starbucks is a looser.... I suppose you pick your own coffee and roast it at home?
Not at all. That has nothing to do with it. Have you ever gone into a Starbucks? If so, you'll know what I'm talking about.

What about MacDonalds? Are you a fan?
Burger King?
etc..

there is a company policy about kicking out non customers , discussion on reddit.

https://www.reddit.com/r/starbucks/comments/6yhtu0/kicking_out_the_noncustomers/
It doesn't matter what reddit says, people who were there that day say there were white people in the place who also didn't buy anything, one of whom also asked for a code to get into the toilet and nobody called the police on them. Any half decent lawyer could easily argue that they were treated differently due to their membership of a protected class, and obviously the CEO of Starbucks has the intelligence to know that even if you don't.

More virtue signaling nonsense.

I wonder, did they ever manage to hire those 10,000 refugees they claimed they would?

Shower of losers, and so are their fake commie loving soy-boy customers.

Protected class? You’d swear they were a species of gerbil.

That's the language used in US federal law - protected classes = race, gender, sexuality and religion. You can't refuse service to anyone on the basis of any of those criteria without breaking the law.

You can't kick people out because they are black, (or white, or any other race).

Sounds weird to me too, but apparently that's normal in American coffee shops. And that being the case you can't allow a shop full of white people to do it and then tell the two black guys to leave.
