The two black men who were arrested last month in a Philadelphia Starbucks have reached a settlement with the city according to the mayor’s office.
Each of them will be paid $1…Yea you read it right… ONE DOLLAR! This settlement will release the city and any of its employees from of all claims associated with the incident that had the internet in a frenzy for a few days. The city has also agreed to create a $200,000 fund that will help young entrepreneurs in Philly.
Robinson and Nelson will also serve on a committee to establish and award the grant, which will focus on starting a pilot curriculum for public high school students to attain the skills to become business owners.
The mayor’s office said neither Nelson, Robinson nor their attorneys will receive any payment from the grant funds. The money will come from the budget of the city’s Finance Department.
