Starbucks race row: Black men arrested in Philadelphia cafe settle for $1
May 2, 2018 4:20 pm
Two black men who were arrested at a Starbucks cafe by Philadelphia police last month have reached a financial settlement with the city.
Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson will each receive a symbolic $1 and a promise from officials to set up a programme for young entrepreneurs.
The arrest of the men, who had not yet ordered and were waiting for a friend, kicked off a row over racial profiling.
Starbucks announced days later it would require employee anti-bias training.
