Starbucks says it will close more than 8,000 stores nationwide for a one-day anti-racial bias training, in response to protests and boycott threats after two black men being arrested inside a Philadelphia Starbucks. Their lawyer says the two men were waiting for a third person to arrive for a business meeting, when a Starbucks employee called the police and claimed the men were trespassing. After a video of the arrests went viral, protesters took over the store in downtown Philadelphia during two straight days of protests.
