  • 2 black men arrested at Philadelphia Starbucks draw outrage..One-sided story?

    Great on the Commissioner for coming out and speaking, but it's sad that a Cheif, Sheriff, Commissioner or whatever the title is has to do this in today's day and age. And sad that Starbucks did not stand up and say that their employee called.
    I guess one more reason not to go to Starbucks.
    Starbucks has issued an apology after an incident that led to the arrest of two men at a Philadelphia location earlier this week.

    Better yet...go in with a bunch of people all wearing blackface and start reciting Othello. Have everybody use the restroom, and don't order anything. When they ask you to leave tell them you heard that Starbucks offers free meeting space so you're holding auditions for your theater group. If they call the police, sue them for discriminating against Shakespeare and the performing arts.

    The sad thing is, I probably wouldn't have gotten the "real scoop" on this story if not for this forum.

    Says a lot about our media, now doesn't it?

    I’m beginning to think that Starbucks may have had something to do with this. Lots of bad press lately, so something needed to be done to put them in a “good” light. They were quick to throw the manager under the bus, so for all we know, he could have been on his way out. They find a location where they put their act into play.

    I’ve whittled down my visits to Starbucks over the years. This incident has caused me to stop all together.

    Yes. I’m thinking that Starbucks paid out at least 5, maybe 6 figures.

    The $1/person is only the public payment. There's also that " undisclosed and confidential financial settlement".

    $1 per person?

    I didn't know the "ghetto lottery" had scratchers....
