Yes and in that perception lays problems great and small.

So he ignored the manager....

Rashon Nelson initially brushed it off when the Starbucks manager told him he couldn’t use the restroom because he wasn’t a paying customer.

The manager said this because....

Seattle-based Starbucks Corp. has said the location where the arrests occurred has a policy that restrooms are for paying customers only.

and who is right? The black men 'offended' for being asked to leave since they were not customers or the black police chief?

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.”

Democratic Mayor Jim Kenney, who is white, said what happened at the Starbucks “appears to exemplify what racial discrimination looks like in 2018.”

Police Commissioner Richard Ross, who’s black, said in a Facebook video that arresting officers “did absolutely nothing wrong,” and added that Nelson and Robinson were disrespectful to officers. Ross said officers did what they were supposed to do and were professional in their dealings with the men, “and instead they got the opposite back.”

Starbucks is NOT a place to hold meetings..unless you buy a cup of coffee... and have to wait. This could all have been avoided if they used the establishment as intended.

Also, if you have not watched it find the whole video not the :45 second snippet...

From your own quote... "She said a Starbucks employee told the gentlemen that if they didn’t purchase anything, they would have to leave, but DePino said that there were people in the store who said they hadn’t purchased anything for hours and had no issue."

And straight from the article, other people where sitting in the store who didn't order anything that were not asked to leave.
