Starbucks will close 8,000 US stores May 29 for racial-bias training

In case you haven’t been following the story:

- Two black men in Philadelphia were arrested at a Starbucks after the store manager reported them to the cops for Sitting and Waiting While Black
- Chaos ensues.
-Starbucks CEO orders all stores closed for an afternoon next month so every employee can undergo “racial bias training.”

So, is this “training” a necessary step? An overreaction?

This training is stupid.

They could close all their stores permanently and I wouldn't miss them.

Definitely an over reaction. They were asked multiple times if they wanted anything, they were there for a couple of hours. One of them asked to use the bathroom and they were denied, since they were not technically customers. Same thing happened to a cop who asked to use the restroom and was denied, and nobody cared. This is idiotic, but is becoming more and more common place in America.
