STARBUCKS COMES TO AN AGREEMENT

This story broke last week about Starbucks coming to an agreement with Donte Robinson, and Rashon Nelson, the two entrepreneurs who while sitting waiting the arivial of a 3rd person for a business meeting were arrested for trespassing and refusing to leave or make a purchase.

This sparked outrage online and social media as the two calmly were arrested. The whole ordeal was recorded by phone. This amidst recent and unfair behavior towards african Americans by Starbucks employees in the recent weeks.

Starbucks came to an agreement with the gentlemen for a settlement of $1 each and a promise of a donation of $200K to help underprivileged youth. The owner of Starbucks shut the stores down across America for a day of customer service training and appreciation.
