Black men arrested at Starbucks said they were afraid for their lives

Starbucks

The two black men arrested at Starbucks say they were afraid for their lives. Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson say they brushed it off when the manager told them they couldn’t use the restroom unless they were paying customers.

They knew things were getting more serious when the police showed up and started walking in their direction. Nelson and Robinson say that they were at Starbucks for a business meeting.

“That’s when we knew she called the police on us,” Nelson told The Associated Press in the men’s first interview since video of their April 12 arrests went viral.

The arrest set off a social media firestorm. The two men have since met with Starbucks CEO and Starbucks announced they will close 8,000 stores on May 29 for “racial bias training.”

“We were there for a real reason, a real deal that we were working on,” Robinson explained. “We put in a lot of time, energy, effort. … We were at a moment that could have a positive impact on a whole ladder of people, lives, families. So I was like, ‘No, you’re not stopping that right now.’”

The arrest was video taped by another customer and placed on twitter.

Robinson said he thought about his loved ones and how the afternoon had taken such a turn as he was taken to jail. Nelson wondered if he’d make it home alive.

“Anytime I’m encountered by cops, I can honestly say it’s a thought that runs through my mind,” Nelson said. “You never know what’s going to happen.”

Something about this story makes me think there is more to it than appears. The reason I say this is do they look like they are dressed for a business meeting? This is probably what the unfortunate employee who called the police thought. For now it is funny to see leftists Starbucks have to face racism charges.
