Starbucks will temporarily close 8,000 U.S. stores for racial-bias training – NBC News

Sexual harassment training has been around for a couple of decades now and most companies that have more than 10 employees. Companies did not do it because of some altruistic reason they did it because they were being sued by there employees who had been sexually harassed. Now it’s time for corporations to step up to the plate regarding racial bias and how they treat their customers. In the incidents with Starbucks that spawned all of this interest many white customers had said they had spent their whole day there without buying a single thing and using Wi-Fi and an electric plug. And yet the Starbucks employees thought it would be proper to arrest two African-Americans for doing the same thing.

I applaud Starbucks for taking this step, but it reminds me of when Chipotle close their stores down because of the bacterial outbreak, it’s too little and too late.
