Yesterday, March 16th, Starbucks announced that they have invited their partners (employees) to begin inviting customers to have conversations about race.  We think this is awesome and is a fantastic step towards getting our entire country to actually identify that an inequity and prejudice exists in America between races.  We must discuss these issues if we are to overcome them and become a better society. We here at Project Kinect could continue to discuss this historical decision by Starbucks, but everyone else already is.
