Starbucks CEO apologizes to 2 black men arrested


That's one reason the arrest of two black men who were sitting in a Starbucks struck a nerve for so many: They were doing exactly what people do at most any of the chain's 28,000 stores worldwide. But that didn't stop protesters from gathering Sunday outside the store in downtown Philadelphia where the arrests occurred. "This country was built on the backs of black and brown people and now Starbucks is going to treat us like we're second-class." Video shows several police talking quietly with two black men seated at a table. Officers went to the store after Starbucks employees called 911 to report the men were trespassing, said Police Commissioner Richard Ross.
