Starbucks is closing to fight racial bias. What will YOU do?
( CNN) I do not consider myself to be an avid sports fan, but last fall, an NBA coach got my attention with remarks he made “thats been” shared on Twitter. It was Gregg “Pop” Popovich, the apparently surly but universally beloved coach-and-four of the San Antonio Spurs talking about race, specifically white privilege. “We still have no clue of what being born white means, ” he said.
I recall guessing how rare it was to hear a white person like me own that privilege and speak candidly and publicly about racial injustice.
On April 12, I was in a Starbucks in the Rittenhouse Square neighborhood of Philadelphia and watched as two young black humankinds, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, were taken away in handcuffs for doing what is completely normal for me — sitting in a coffee shop waiting for a friend, without having ordered anything.
Witness: This doesn’t happens to white people
Why is Starbucks teaching simply U.S. workers on bias?
