‘Racial discrimination’: Inquiry ordered by mayor following arrests of black men at Starbucks

After a social media stir following a video showing two black men handcuffed at Starbucks in Philadelphia, mayor Jim Kenney has called for an inquiry over the policies of the company that has been accused of ‘racial discrimination’.

The video shows two men waiting for their friend at Starbucks being arrested because the staff claimed they were “trespassing”. As seen in the video, the men were handcuffed and then taken out.

According to The Guardian, Mayor Jim Kenney said on Saturday that he was “heartbroken” to see the news that appears “to exemplify what racial discrimination looks like in 2018”.
