Starbucks arrests sparks outrage in Philadelphia

Clip: 04/16/2018 | 6m 28s

Two African-American men were arrested in a Philadelphia Starbucks last week after a store manager reportedly called police after the men asked to use the bathroom without buying anything. The backlash has been unmoved by the CEO's apologies and a call for unconscious bias training for employees. Amna Nawaz gets reaction from Philadelphia City Councilmember Kenyatta Johnson.
