"It's like being a black male sometimes I'm being honest, like you're looked upon as being a threat, just by waking up in the morning trying to buy a cup of coffee", said Troy Jackson of Philadelphia.

The term used to describe encounters like the one at the Starbucks is "retail racism", also known as "shopping while black". Kahn says that "awareness is a first step": "No one training is going to be able to just remediate these types of biases", she said. "Having to perform being non-threatening.it's exhausting, and it is a commonplace expectation".

Starbucks Coffee Company has announced it would be closing over 8,000 company-owned stores across the United States on the afternoon of May 29 to educated employees on racial bias.

"That's when we knew she called the police on us", Nelson told The Associated Press in the first interview by the two black men since video of their trespassing arrests April 12 touched off a furor around the USA over racial profiling, or what has been dubbed "retail racism" or "shopping while black". He visited more than 300 stores across the country when he was writing a book called, Everything But the Coffee: Learning About America From Starbucks."I would normally sit for a while, sometimes as much as five hours", said Simon, who is white".

As a result, Starbucks had to do more in response than the average company.

A Starbucks spokesperson, Jaime Riley, told The Washington Post on Wednesday that "in this particular store, the guidelines were that partners must ask unpaying customers to leave the store, and police were to be called if they refused".

"You are actually not allowed to be in here anymore", she said to Ward. When the manager called the police, Schultz said, she probably thought they would come to her location and talk to the men about what they were doing inside. A study past year by Case Western professor Cassi Pittman found that such practices require black shoppers to navigate being seen as a threat to avoid harassment, humiliation or harm. "Commissioner Ross has said the officers did 'absolutely nothing wrong.' POWER and community leaders are gathering to demonstrate that racial discrimination is intolerable and that Philadelphia police must end racial bias and complicity with white supremacy".

The men were waiting for a third man to arrive for a business meeting when the manager called 911.

The arrest sparked cries of racial discrimination after the video went viral around the world. In Philadelphia, the exchange was marked not only with video proof, but by the indignation and attempted intervention of a pair of white bystanders.

A Philadelphia Starbucks is under fire after the arrest of two black men who they allege were trespassing. Soon the police reached at the place and took the people to the police headquarter.

While FOX61 was interviewing Lewis, the Starbucks manager interrupted and said Lewis was more than welcome to have a silent protest and to help himself to some coffee. "Shame on me", Ross added.

"I feel like I fell short", he explained.

Adams said she was upset after watching the Starbucks video, calling the incident was "unfair and ridiculous". Neither were paying customers. But as much as you don't want to pre-judge someone it's there.

"When you know that you did nothing wrong, how do you really react to it?"
