Philadelphia mayor ‘heartbroken’ after black men arrested at Starbucks

Mayor Jim Kenney said the coffee giant’s apology was not enough and that the city Commission on Human Relations will examine the firm’s policies and bias training provided its employees.

“I am heartbroken to see Philadelphia in the headlines for an incident that — at least based on what we know at this point — appears to exemplify what racial discrimination looks like in 2018,” Kenney said in a statement.

…“What did they get called for, because there were two black guys sitting here to meet me,” Yaffe says on the video. “What did they do? What did they do?”

A woman can be heard saying, “they didn’t do anything, I saw the entire thing.”
