Coca Cola Wants Everybody to ''Try to be Less White' Login/Join

In my case, it will be less red and white...


Coca-Cola has used a training video by antiracist activist Robin DiAngelo that tells employees to “try to be less white,” according to “unwoke activist” Karlyn Borysenko based on information from what she says is a company whistleblower.

Employees are told in the “what you can do” section that to “be less white” one can:

Be less oppressive
Be less arrogant
Be less certain
Be less defensive
Be less arrogant
Be more humble
Listen
Believe
Break with apathy
Break with white solidarity

The list thus implies that all white people are, by their very skin color, oppressive, defensive, arrogant, apathetic, and so forth.



Note the Coca Cola logo in the upper right of the screen shot.

Seems pretty racist of the anti-racist to tell people to be less like themselves.

Like it matters who delivers Coke to my grocery store. First thing I think about. Really?? Robin is a Caucasian Senior Citizen with an advanced degree.

I'm just contrary enough that I might try to be more that way, just for spite.

Robin has an "advanced degree"? Obviously not in a useful field.

If I'm being less white, then I must be being more something else? Isn't that cultural appropriating? I thought that was most bad?

Her book also mentions it is racist for white women to cry in front of African American males.

Fuckum.

"No Coke, Pepsi" in this house anyway. And the amount of Pepsi consumed in a year would't fill a 6 pack.

Seriously wtf. Every fucking group at work is like this. Gays. Women. White. Latino. Black (actually more than anyone). India Indian ( also big time). Asian especially Chinese.

These are universal HUMAN traits manifested by all groups. Any company seeking market growth. Any person climbing the ladder.

I swear there is something in the fucking water.

Ironically, there ain't nothin' in the world more oppressive, arrogant, and certain than the woke crowd.

I not only might try, I guarantee you I will try and I'll succeed.

I’ve always been a bigger fan of RC, but I better do some research on them, too, I guess.
Ugh. Seriously, though, what are these people thinking?

A good way to gauge the results of all this virtue signaling will be to see how Coke's profit margin fares in the long term if this gets lots of notice in the mainstream. If they lose money, you'll know it's not well received.

If they try to put me in one of these classes I will file an ethics complaint for violation of our treatment of others policy. Stereotyping by race is wrong no matter what race it is.

I've been telling my friends to be less their way and we'd all get along better ...
So far it hasn't been received very well nor worked at all.

Ps, pull your damn pants up
