Have you ever shown up early to Starbucks to meet a friend? Have you waited to order until they arrived? Maybe you decided to use the restroom. If you’re black, that can get you arrested, handcuffed, fingerprinted, photographed, and treated like a criminal. This isn’t hypothetical, this just happened to two black real estate agents in Philadelphia when a white Starbucks manager called police because they didn’t order immediately and asked to use the restroom. Bystanders told police the men did nothing wrong and asked why this was happening. This is what it’s like to be black in America. 🤬
Onlookers claim a Starbucks barista called police on two customers who were waiting for a friend.
