    -Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson settled with the city of Philadelphia for a symbolic $1 each and a promise from officials to set up a program for young entrepreneurs.
    -The arrest of the two men touched off a furor around the U.S. over racial profiling.
    -Starbucks CEO Kevin Johnson came to Philadelphia to personally apologize.

    Is there another discussion on this situation on this forum? If not, then I find it astounding that that only ONE person felt this was important enough to respond to.

    Not sure what this says and no, am not going there.
