Is Coca Cola sponsoring racism? That's the claim. You be the judge.
‘Try To Be Less White’
When I first saw this story I was highly skeptical.
However, the training course is available online and Coca Cola is doing its best to try to back down from the course.
Here's the course Confronting Racism, with Robin DiAngelo
In this course, Robin DiAngelo, the best-selling author of White Fragility, gives you the vocabulary and practices you need to start confronting racism and unconscious bias at the individual level and throughout your organization. There’s no magic recipe for building an inclusive workplace. It’s a process that needs to involve people of color, and that needs to go on for as long as your company’s in business.
The free into above does not show the ending slide "Try to be less white" but what you can see is galling enough.
The video Tweet by @DrKarlynB shows more of the damning slides.
Late Sunday evening NewsWeek reported Coca-Cola, Facing Backlash, Says 'Be Less White' Learning Plan Was About Workplace Inclusion
Coca-Cola, facing mounting backlash from conservatives online, has responded to allegations of anti-white rhetoric after an internal whistleblower leaked screenshots of diversity training materials that encourages staff to "try to be less white."
A Coca-Cola spokesperson confirmed that the course is "part of a learning plan to help build an inclusive workplace," but also noted that "the video circulating on social media is from a publicly available LinkedIn Learning series and is not a focus of our company's curriculum."
The Coca-Cola logo is on training snapshots in the video Tweet.
If Coca-Cola did not authorize and pay for the the training, the slides would not have their logo, Karlyn would be in deep legal trouble, and Twitter would have removed the Tweet.
Who in the hell is reviewing their training materials?
Best selling author Candance Owens had this to say.
Owens is Founder of the @BLEXIT organization. "Black people don’t have to be Democrats— still."
Coke Is Racist
The New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Salon, and Washington Post have no coverage of this.
All the top sites plus Coca-Cola all want to sweep this under the rug.
Why Trump Nearly Won
Please recall Politically Correct Educators Vote to Rename 44 SF Schools Including Washington and Lincoln
Also note The Dumbing Down of America is Poised to Accelerate.
If you are looking for a reason why millions of people voted for Trump, look no further.
I intended to do a post on why Trump nearly won but this post will suffice.
Every bit of this is a complete outrage. It is why Trump won in 2016. Had he toned things down a bit in 2020 he probably would have been reelected.
Just install Tanning beds at work.......................
Awesome. Guess they’re paying for spray tans.
Once again we think way too much alike. LOL!
Maybe start by learning to talk Ebonics; start saying “Yassuh boss?”
Here’s a link to ‘doctor’ robin’s page. How can some eye-talian tell folks how to be less white? Just’ sayin’....
I wonder what the reaction would be if they had a training program to get the other employees to be less black.
So I need to dress like a peacock, snort crack and desert my family? Is that what Coke wants?
Did they put the cocaine back in?
Anyone want to describe the reaction that would occur if a white person addressed a group of blacks, and told them to act less black?
It would make an attack by a school of piranhas on a bloody steak look gentle by comparison.
"Sail On" was one of my favorites from them.
I tried to be less white today.
I tried and tried and tried.
Nothing I tried could change my color.
Perhaps, just perhaps, the Democrats are really more concerned about green than white.
Been drinking Coca Cola for over 30 years...literally live on it.
Switching to Dr Pepper.
Just play some Michael Jackson stuff and you’re good to go..............
Be less white. Sure, that means I’ll do less work.
Coca Cola is one of the biggest threats to the health of non white people. Coca Cola causes obesity and diabetes which are killing blacks and hispanics. Coca Cola is as bad as Kools, Salems, menthol cigarettes, and cigarettes in general.
Excuse me for acting white and avoiding obvious health risks.
All us crackers an’ honkies betta check our white privilege.
