Every branch of Starbucks in the US will close this afternoon - so staff can have racial awareness training.
It's been triggered by the wrongful arrests of two black men, at one of the coffee chain's shops in Philadelphia last month.
The company has since apologised and promised to help prevent discrimination.
Here are some examples of incidents that happened in certain Starbucks stores:
@Starbucks The police were called because these men hadn’t ordered anything. They were waiting for a friend to show up, who did as they were taken out in handcuffs for doing nothing. All the other white ppl are wondering why it’s never happened to us when we do the same thing. pic.twitter.com/0U4Pzs55Ci

Here we go again.
Meet Brandon Ward. He was @Starbucks - about to make a purchase - and needed to use the restroom.
They denied him the code.
He then finds a white man, Weston, who came out of the restroom.
He had not made a purchase but they gave HIM the code.
