After a wave of protests in response to the arrest of two black customers in a Philadelphia store, global coffee chain said they will close 8,000 stores on May 29 to give employees racial bias training. What do you think?

“Wow, Starbucks employees get a 401(k), health coverage, and free racial bias training?”

“The black community has struggled for centuries to win a public-relations band-aid like this.”

Tabitha Seidman • Esperanto Interpreter

“Okay, but customers can still be racist, right?”
