"A welcoming place for everyone," CEO Kevin Johnson said of the May diversity training. Managers still didn't get the memo.
Two months after the highly publicized, and eventual flop, of Starbucks' diversity training, a transgender employee with the company for nine years has filed a lawsuit because her manager in Fresno, Calif., made her work days intolerable.
Black people, check. Disability, check. Who is next in line?
Domino's fires the employee and gives customer "a gift card for your racism troubles."

White theater manager uses white 911 privilege. Police do their thug thing on a 14-year-old.
Public safety resources have been wasted again — this time, on a teen's sagging pants.
A Cineworld movie theater's manager in Wichita, Kan., called the police on Alonzo Taylor, a Black 14-year-old, when he didn't pull up his pants quickly.
In an age of increasing racial confrontations, a business must have zero tolerance for discrimination.

A Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf café barista refused to serve a racist customer; meanwhile, a white manager at a Starbucks called the police on two Black men for no reason.
The employee was fired, but Radisson Hotel Group, which is run completely by white men, is following Starbucks' treacherous path and hosting a quickly planned "sensitivity training."
A former hotel employee lost his job after first losing his temper and calling a Black guest a "f***ing monkey." The hotel manager has called for "sensitivity training," but a look at the corporation's all white male leadership team suggests that competency at the top would be a better place to begin.
"The cops admit that the woman's reason for calling the police was because we didn't WAVE to her as she looked at us putting our luggage into our car from her lawn," Kells Fyffe-Marshall wrote on Facebook.
