In an emotional interview, the CEO of Starbucks, Kevin R. Johnson was confronted with the truth about racism in America. But racism is more than prejudice. It is, rather, the system by which prejudice is encoded into the laws and customs of a society so that, to take an example not quite at random, two black men can be arrested for waiting quietly on a prospective business associate to arrive for a meeting at Starbucks.
In the video above, the Starbucks CEO seem to sincerely express how he is going to fix the issue to understand how the incident happened and to ensure he doesn’t happen again.
Racism is alive and well in our society, so this conversation is far from over.
