You might not know their names, but Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson are the two black guys who got kicked out of a Starbucks in Philadelphia last month.
They were there for a business meeting and the guy they were meeting with hadn’t arrived yet. When they didn’t immediately buy coffee, the manager called the cops on them.
They had a chance to sue the city for a bunch of money. Rather than doing that, they settled for one dollar each yesterday and got the city to launch a new $200,000 initiative to help young people start their own businesses.
It’ll specifically help high school students in the Philadelphia area who are interested in being entrepreneurs.
Donte says they thought a lot about what to do, and felt like this was the best way to make an impact and actually change things for the better.
