On Tuesday, Starbucks announced that the company is going to close over 8,000 stores across the United States next month “to conduct racial-bias education geared toward preventing discrimination in our stores.”
The announcement from Starbucks comes after a video went viral last Thursday that showed two black males getting arrested in a store in Philadelphia. In response, social justice warriors launched a boycott of Starbucks and the company has now decided to close thousands of store locations next month to conduct “racial-bias education.”
The closing of more than 8,000 stores across the U.S. on May 29 will provide training to approximately 175,000 Starbucks’ employees.
