Rashon Nelson and Donte Robinson, the two black men that were arrested at a Philadelphia Starbucks after waiting for their associate without purchasing anything, are turning their arrest into something positive. The entrepreneurs settled for $1 and a city pledge for a $200,000 program for young entrepreneurs. “We thought long and hard about it and we feel like this is the best way to see that change that we want to see,” said Robinson. “It’s not a right-now thing that’s good for right now, but I feel like we will see the true change over time.” The program will be available for Philadelphia high school students.
