(Natural News) If you're an avid news consumer you likely heard that a pair of black men were recently escorted out of a Philadelphia Starbucks in handcuffs after the store manager called the police.
The reason? Well, according to initial reports the "reason" may have been strictly because the two men were of African-American descent.
In a video posted to Twitter by a woman who was witness to the travesty, police are speaking to a pair of black men the woman says were just sitting inside the shop while they were waiting for a third person before ordering their coffee. The interaction ends with the two men being arrested.
The witness, author Melissa DePino, told media that the men were sitting and chatting at a table for less than 15 minutes before employees of the store called the police.
On the surface, it appears as though the crime committed may have been "sitting in a restaurant while black." The men, revealed to be real estate brokers, did not appear to have done anything wrong and, according to reporting, were merely waiting for their friend and associate. They were formally arrested for "defiant trespassing."
For that, every employee at every single Starbucks store will now be forced to endure an afternoon of what promises to be a berating Alt-Left beatdown of political correctness.
According to the company, Starbucks will close all of its stores on the afternoon of May 29 to conduct "a racial-bias education program," according to CNBC.
Not even kidding.
"I've spent the last few days in Philadelphia with my leadership team listening to the community, learning what we did wrong and the steps we need to take to fix it," Kevin Johnson, CEO of Starbucks, said in a statement Tuesday.
One question that immediately comes to mind is, "Fix what?" Is there a systemic, wide-ranging racial bias problem within the most liberal coffee company on the planet? Because if there is, I've been missing those reports.
