Two black men arrested at Starbucks settle with Philadelphia for $1 each - The Washington Post

'Two African American men arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks last month have reached a settlement with the city and secured its commitment to a pilot program for young entrepreneurs. '

'Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson chose not to pursue a lawsuit against the city, Mike Dunn, a spokesman for the city of Philadelphia, told The Washington Post. '

'The city, Nelson and Robinson will work together on developing a committee to award the grants. '

'They were then arrested, and Robinson said they were not read any rights or told why they were being arrested. '

'As protests broke out at that Philadelphia Starbucks, Johnson and Schultz appeared in television interviews to pledge that the company would work to combat unconscious bias and racial profiling among its employees. '

Everyone know this was about racism. The police know it. Starbucks knows it. Any normal person familiar with the facts of the incident knows it. Case by case the bigots are being forced back.

It's about a business' right to deny service for any reason. In this case they weren't buying anything. They were asked to leave. They didn't leave. So they were trespassing. Just cause they were black doesn't mean they are above the law.
