Just last week Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson were arrested at a Starbucks in Philadelphia, shortly after arriving, for no apparent reason besides being Black.
The manger of the store called the police, because the men did not order anything, literally two minutes after their arrival.
One of the gentlemen asked to use the bathroom, and was denied service because he did not purchase anything.
Both men were later arrested, even though they were never asked to leave the establishment.
According to reports, the men were not read their rights, before they were arrested, nor what they were being arrested for.
Nelson and Robinson were meeting at Starbucks in reference to a real estate meeting that they were preparing for for months.
The young men opened up on Good Morning America with Robin Roberts to share their unjust experience with the world.
FULL INTERVIEW: “This is something that has been going on for years…everyone is blind to it.”
