The men were arrested when a manager complained that they had not made a purchase. Police called to the scene asked the non-customers to leave three times, according to police. The men were arrested and handcuffed as their friend arrived. The attorney for the two men, Lauren Wimmer, told the Philadelphia Inquirer she received word that the two were being released from custody at 12:30 a.m. Friday, almost eight hours after the initial 911 call.

"SHRM Online has collected the following stories from its archives and other sources on the topic of unconscious bias and discriminatory conduct".

Protests continued today at the Starbucks where the men were arrested, with crowds initially gathered outside only to be driven inside from heavy rains.

Ross said all commanders in his department receive implicit bias training, and all new recruits are sent to both the National Museum of African American History and Culture and the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington, D.C. Police arrested two black men who were waiting inside the Center City Starbucks which prompted an apology from the company's CEO.

A Starbucks representative told the NY Daily News the unidentified manager "no longer works at that store", and "there is an internal review pending". They were in attendance to demand justice and equality from Starbucks.

An IHOP in Auburn, Maine, apologized after a server asked a group of black teens to pay upfront for their meal last month. The manager asked the men to be removed for allegedly trespassing.

"We know that you don't have the power to change everything. In this case, that was not the issue, and that's for them to decide why they didn't do that", he told the station.

Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak leaving Facebook over privacy concerns
Numerous celebrities also have joined the #DeleteFacebook exodus, including Cher , Will Ferrell , Rosie O'Donnell and Jim Carrey. So, Apple Co-Founder Steve Wozniak has recently taken the decision of leaving the platform after all of this.

The question is what to do about it.

In an interview on Monday, Kevin Johnson said the Philadelphia branch manager who called police on the two men last week has now left the company. Footage posted on social media showed protesters holding placards and chanting slogans against the company and the police action.

Over the weekend, demonstrators called for the firing of the employee who contacted police, who arrested the men on Thursday. "This situation had none of that and these two gentlemen did not deserve what unfolded". "All the other white ppl are wondering why it's never happened to us when we do the same thing".

In a letter to Starbucks customers and partners issued prior to the video, Johnson wrote that staff will be trained "to better know when police assistance is warranted" and it will host a company-wide meeting in coming days to discuss immediate next steps and "underscore our long-standing commitment to treating one another with respect and dignity".

"First, to once again express our deepest apologies to the two men who were arrested with a goal of doing whatever we can to make things right", Johnson said in a statement. Johnson said he would like to apologize to them face to face. The company "stands firmly against discrimination or racial profiling", he said in the statement. "What happened was wrong, and we will fix it".

After the arrest of two African-American men in a Philadelphia Starbucks sparked protests and outrage, Tip thinks it's time to hit the coffee giant where it hurts: the wallet! The permission or "license" to enter - whether Starbucks or any commercial enterprise in America - is that entry is licensed by a store or restaurant to members of the public in anticipation of an individual buying a product.
