This week’s topic: Are boycotts effective in 2018?
The digital era brings modern day racism to our screens daily, with arrests and shootings unfortunately becoming a staple on our timelines. Seeing injustice played out right before our eyes regularly has turned even the most apathetic among us into full on activists. We recently saw two black men arrested while Black at Starbucks which prompted the CEO to close all Starbucks locations on May 29th for employees to undergo “implicit bias training.”
Is Starbucks doing enough? Will Black people opting out of buying their coffee prompt change? Tune in today and find out.
