As Twitchy reported, following the arrest of two black men accused of loitering at a Philadelphia location, Starbucks rolled out the welcome mat and declared that “any person who enters our spaces, including patios, cafes and restrooms, regardless of whether they make a purchase, is considered a customer.”

That policy was reinforced yesterday afternoon, as thousands of Starbucks stores closed for mandatory anti-bias training for employees. Fox News reported on that training, which included topics such as “becoming color brave” and adopting the “Third Place Policy” — the one that lets people hang out in the store and not buy anything.

Actor James Woods shared this bit of the training, which focused on approaching these new customers as humans.

If you can stomach it, here’s the video introducing employees to the day’s lessons:
