…nt through when they were arrested. Donte Robinson and Rashon Nelson were harmed by this encounter. Mr. Schultz needs to understand this instead of blithely suggesting it would help if they sat down with that manager.

Why should these men sit down with this manager to help her work out HER issues with race? Why should these men subject themselves to discuss race with an unknown biased bully who is not intelligent enough to know the true use of 911. Why is their job to “help her” understand how she inflicted harm, humiliation, and undue inconvenience because she felt as though they did not belong in that store?
Those men spent 8 hours in jail for nothing. Officers wasted the city’s time and money because of this manager, and the CEO believes the men need to meet the woman, eh?
I call bull.
These men have met enough racists in their short lives to know sitting down with this biased manager will not stop their encounters with other biased people in business, in banking, in school/college, in policing, or any other place where biased humans hide and inflict harm. It’s simply a photo op ploy conjured up by the CEO and a PR showpiece to sell papers for the media. I’d like to learn more about her……..why is the media protecting her? Why is Starbucks protecting her?
The men were jailed, and the white female manager is protected. Protected! She’s protected. SHE, a descendant of the Mothers of Resistance, is ALWAYS protected. And believed. I’ll just let that sit right here.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
