Starbucks closes 8,000 stores across the U.S. for anti-racism training


Starbucks is closing 8,000 stores across the U.S to train 175,000 employees on racial tolerance. It's after an incident at one of the chain's shops in Philadelphia in April. Two black when were arrested and escorted out of the coffee outlet after using the toilet.

The company suffered a backlash from customers after the incident and settled with the men out of court. In an attempt to draw a line under the row Starbucks is now trying to stamp out racial profiling.
