Starbucks To Close All Stores For Racial Bias Training

By now I'm sure you've seen the video of two black men being arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks for "loitering". Since the video went viral Starbucks is trying to get in front of what could easily turn into a public relations nightmare.

After consulting with the community and internal leadership; the coffee mega chain announced the temporary closure of it's 8,000 company owned stores. Former Obama-era attorney general Eric Holder will be involved with the training initiative. Ironically the police department involved in the arrest will not be involved in the workshop.

Do you think one day is enough? What happens if you're schedule off that day?
