Possible Results of Starbucks Racial Profiling Incident

July 5, 2018

Rashon Nelson, left, and Donte Robinson, right, both 23, sit in their attorney's conference room as they pose for a portrait following an interview with the Associated Press Wednesday April 18, 2018 in Philadelphia. Their arrests at a local Starbucks quickly became a viral video and galvanized people around the country who saw the incident as modern-day racism. In the week since, Nelson and Robinson have met with Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson and are pushing for lasting changes to ensure that what happened to them doesn't happen to future patrons. They are also still processing what it means to have had an everyday encounter escalate into a police confrontation. (AP Photo/Jacqueline Larma)
