Let’s Talk – Starbucks or the Police? Who’s to blame?

Hey you guys! I have a new episode out now on Anchor.fm about the recent scandal with Starbucks. If you haven’t heard, an employee of a Starbucks in Philadelphia called the police on two men of color for sitting in the lobby without buying anything while they waited for a friend to arrive. The two men were then arrested by police.

The question I pose is who is really at fault? I understand the employee represents Starbucks but that doesn’t mean that those are Starbucks views. On the other hand, was it legally just for the police to arrest the men rather than simply escorting them out of the coffee shop?

Tune into my podcast, Let’s Talk, on Anchor: https://anchor.fm/isthatjas to hear my views on the situation!
