If you thinking you’re grabbing your favorite drink from your local Starbucks, you lucked out today! All U.S store locations are currently closed. Employees are participating in an anti-bias training after two black men, Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, were arrested for sitting while black at a Starbucks in Philadelphia.

There were no charges filed on Nelson and Robinson and they settled for  $1 each and a promise from officials to set up a $200,000 program for young entrepreneurs.

As Starbucks continues to right their wrongs, we wanted to know if people thought the training is a genuine gesture or is it a publicity stunt. Can we blame Starbucks as a company for their racially bias employee?
