Starbucks_NewLogo_2011-thumb-thumb.jpgStarbucks has been forced to remove some anti-pickpocketing posters that feature "a man with dark skin surrounded by arrows pointing to various objects" from its stores in France. A French anti-racism group claims the posters attribute "delinquent behavior" to a minority, although Starbucks says the man was supposed to represent a customer rather than a thief and that there was a second poster featuring a white woman. But who will warn French consumers about pickpockets now? [UPI via Gawker]
