Starbucks anti-bias training
One right after the other, would-be patrons of a Starbucks in Astor Place in Manhattan came face-to-face with a locked door. Some were disappointed that they couldn't get their afternoon caffeine fix. The coffee giant decided to shut down all 8,000 stores nationwide on Tuesday afternoon for mandatory anti-bias training. It was an attempt to restore its reputation after the arrest of two black men in a Philadelphia store in April.
