Howard Schultz, the former Starbucks CEO and potential 2020 independent presidential candidate, is facing criticism for responding to a question on racial bias by saying that he does not “see colour”. “As somebody who grew up in a very diverse background as a young boy in the projects I didn’t see colour as a young boy and I honestly don’t see colour now,” Schultz, who is from Brooklyn, said during a CNN town hall event in Houston on Tuesday evening.
