Starbucks to close over 8,000 cafes in US to train staff in racial tolerance

Responding to the outrage and calls for boycott, Starbucks Corps has announced that it will close over 8,000 cafes across US to train its staff in racial tolerance. The move has come after protests which were sparked by the arrest of two African American men from a Philadelphia store of Starbucks when they were just sitting and waiting for a friend. The Starbucks CEO has publicly apologised to the two men. The incident is indicative of the implicit racial bias that exists in the country.
