Former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz raised some eyebrows Tuesday night with his stance on racial bias training after two black men were arrested last year for just sitting in a Starbucks.

“As somebody who grew up in a very diverse background as a young boy in the projects, I didn’t see color as a young boy,” Schultz said during a CNN town hall. “And I honestly don’t see color now.”
