    Not really, lets try and look at this in a calm, rational manner.

    1. Starbucks is a business


    2. The men weren't ordering anything.

***They had not ordered yet. Apparently neither had Weston, the gentleman(White) who was exiting the bathroom prior to his purchase.

    3. They were asked to order something or leave, which is Starbuck's right, when they are taking up space that can be used for customers.

***They then explained that they were simply waiting for a friend(Something most people do at a restaurant or eatery when they arrive before whoever it is they were going to dine or drink with)

    4. They ignored this, they waited until the police came.

Yes. They saw that they were being discriminated against, as did nearly all the other patrons at the location.

    5. The police asked them 3 times to leave. They refused the legal orders and were consequently arrested.

Yes. They were. They did not resist and were calm when doing so.

    6. There is no dispute that they were legally arrested. People aren't blaming the police.

Right again. The issue isn't the arrest. The issue is that they were refused access to the bathroom with the reason being that they had not purchased anything. This, despite the fact that somebody JUST exited the bathroom who had not yet purchased anything.

    7. There is a racial agenda here certainly. If asian or white men had been legally arrested, then this wouldn't have made the news.

I don't know that. What I know is that the manager was clearly being discriminatory. She was caught on tape. The tape went viral. Starbucks did their internal investigation and they let her go, knowing what she did was wrong. The men were released with no charges on them. The moral of the story discrimination is wrong. If you are on the wrong end of it, record it and take action.
