Report: Coca-Cola Forcing Employees To Take Online Course To Learn “To Be Less White”

Report: Coca-Cola Forcing Employees To Take Online Course To Learn “To Be Less White”

Coke responds to backlash: “Our Better Together global learning curriculum is part of a learning plan to help build an inclusive workplace”

Coca-Cola Company is barrelling full-steam ahead in the hopes of being crowned the most wokest woke company of uber-woke 2021.  Last month, Professor Jacobson wrote about “Coca-Cola Impos[ing] Racial Quotas On Outside Counsel Staffing.

This month, we learn that Coca-Cola is forcing its employees to attend a divisive, destructive online course designed to make them hate themselves because of the color of their skin.

Making white people hate themselves for the color of their skin is, of course, the goal of all this ridiculous, flagrantly racist ‘anti-racist’ training’ that has taken over our universities, our government, and our major (and not so major) businesses and corporations.

And Coca-Cola is apparently fully onboard with dehumanizing their staff, with instilling in them a sense of self-hatred and a paranoid, judgemental loathing of their entire race. What says stellar employee more than a suicidal, soul-destroyed, self- and race-hater who is required to be “less white”?

This is a monstrous evil inflicted on people who have done nothing wrong, who are good employees, and who have committed no crime .  . . beyond the new ‘crime’ of being born white.

Being white is bad, so be “less white,” goes the hate yourself racist orthodoxy, and implicit in this, is the unspoken, but deeply understood, threat: if you want to keep your job.

This is a genuinely evil ideology, and people are outraged.

Coca-Cola offered the following statement in response to the backlash:

Tearing people down, filling them with self-doubt and self-hate, is now how you build an “inclusive workplace,” according to Coca-Cola.  Targeting white people for reeducation about their ‘whiteness’ is vile, racist, and unconscionable.

That said, it is—objectively speaking—a great way to manufacture a compliant and complacent populace.  If you hate yourself and your entire race, you are not going to fight back.  Why would you?  You have learned that you are evil because of your skin color, you have been taught to recognize your evil as manifested in your skin color, and you have been coerced into shouting your evil whiteness from the rooftops.  You then feel that you deserve whatever horrors the left unleashes on you because, after all, you were born white.

Who needs reeducation camps when the job is being done in our K-12 schools, universities, cultural output, government, and businesses?

Reject it. Reject it because it flies in the face of your religious beliefs, because it does not comport with your understanding of America, because it does not make sense to hate yourself for something beyond your control, because it is unjust. Reject it because it is destructive, divisive, and at rock bottom, purely evil.

    People have to sue. This creates a hostile work environment and is clearly racist. Breaks several laws simultaneously. A few $ million judgments will have some impact.

      Concise in reply to Ben Kent. | February 21, 2021 at 12:05 pm

      Yes, creating a hostile work environment by targeting people based on race seems eminently actionable. Probably won’t receive any aide form the disgraceful frauds populating the federal agencies, who themselves advocate or practice similar offensive means. Going to have to be private parties and state actors. Hope it will be enough before the federal judiciary is transformed by these snakes in power into something that would approve of this obscenity.

      You can also take 60 seconds and tell Coke online what you think.

      I just sent them this:

      Your Critical Race Theory training is abominably racist.
      Coke products are no longer on our shopping list.
      Try to be less dicks.

        The next Coca-Cola share-holders meeting is going to be spectacular!

        henrybowman in reply to henrybowman. | February 26, 2021 at 12:01 am

        Here’s the BS response I got from Coca Cola. Note in particular that they haven’t “cancelled” or otherwise cut ties with their overtly racist consultants (because, I guess, they are not white (“nationalists”), who would have been fired immediately without any review whatsoever), they just “hid the evidence” from their employees. They’re still demanding racial quotas from their legal consultants, as well.

        Henry, Thank you for contacting The Coca-Cola Company,

        Throughout the past few days, you have likely seen inaccurate reporting on the content of our recently launched Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion training program.

        The video in question was not part of the Company’s curriculum but was accessible on a third-party platform used for the training. We took immediate action and removed any links from the Company recommended training playlist that could lead employees to that content. We do not support the idea of anyone being less of themselves.

        Our business is driven by employees of different genders, ages, abilities, orientations, races, ethnicities, religious beliefs, and countries of origin. All of these dimensions add to our networked way of working, learning and leading.

        We will make sure that we are addressing any opportunities for improvement and continue the dialogue to ensure all voices are heard and respected.

        Kind Regards,
        The Coca-Cola Company
        Consumer Interaction Center, North America

    Sounds very negative.

    “Try to be more caramel colored.”

    There – fixed it for ya.

Subotai Bahadur | February 20, 2021 at 7:07 pm

Even though I am technically not White [Chinese to be exact] I would not want to contaminate myself with anything to do with Coca Cola. Not only will I not ever try to work for that cesspool of racism, they can be assured that my household will not be buying any Coca Cola products.

Subotai Bahadur

    You’re behind the times. Asians failed to fail, so they are white now.

    healthguyfsu in reply to Subotai Bahadur. | February 20, 2021 at 7:35 pm

    If you ever defend your position and are sure of yourself, then you will be said to be white regardless. You will be called arrogant and exuding privileges of whiteness.

    It’s actually right there as subliminal instructions in the lesson plan. Your teachers aka overlords will be all of the ones of any race that are cheering this training along with “uh huh”, “preach”, and “bout damn time.”

    They’ve conveniently carved out this master/slave role playing game for themselves and you, and the stakes of the game are your job, your life, your friends, and anything else you hold dear that they can manipulate.

    If I am to be “less white”, can I use the “N” word and claim victimhood… blaming all of my problems on others? My great great grandmother (born around 1820 or so) was Cherokee and when she married a white man they were driven out of town (Culpepper county) leaving my great grandfather to be raised by a kindly “white” family. (My grandfather was born in 1865).

      Apparently, according the woke progressives, like Bill Gates, it means you can be late to work and meetings, and be bad at math, or something like that.

        Company teaches employees to be “less white.”
        The next day employees arrive for work 20 minutes late.

        Being on-time, according to CRT, is “white”-“CP time” is a “thing” in the black community for a reason.

          The Friendly Grizzly in reply to DaveGinOly. | February 21, 2021 at 8:08 am

          I am sure that lines are still drawn. “Real” blacks can keep “[black-people] time”, but don’t you DARE try it. They can show up with a black-power-fist sweatshirt, but don’t YOU dare show up with any sort of Nordic imagery on anything.

    Sorry to break the news, but Big Brother has declared that East Asian = White = Born Racist and requires re-education.

    Big Brother’s (mostly white) Critical Race Theory Think Tank is still studying whether or not South Asian = White.

    Good idea, be sure to know their family of products, reaches from milk to tea and coffee and who knows what. and tell them you’re avoiding their products and why.

Better Together? Clearly not if you’re teaching folk to be ashamed of their race, to hate who they are, and for everyone else to hate and despise them because of their race.

Wonder how Coca Cola would respond if folk starting putting up ‘White Pride – Equality is a Human Right’ stickers or somesuch. 😀

On a side note, store brand Coke seems to taste better than Coca Cola, and is cheaper, so this seems more a go woke go broke effort.

#BoycottRacistCoca-Cola Let them survive on brown and black customers.

    I’ve been boycotting Coca-Cola for years because of their labor practices in the Third World, and because their aggressive marketing of their noxious product is responsible for much of the diabetes in the impoverished, Third-World region where I work as a missionary. Of course, the high incidence of diabetes has now translated into greater vulnerability to COVID.

    Funny how Coca-Cola’s conversion to Wokeness” coincides with the growing recognition that Coke is responsible for the suffering and death of a lot of poor, non-White folks.

“Who needs reeducation camps when the job is being done in our K-12 schools, universities, cultural output, government, and businesses?”

But, hey, let’s get our kids back into public schools, right?!

    kyrrat in reply to utroukx. | February 21, 2021 at 2:26 am

    That would require mine to have ever ‘been’ in public schools to begin with. Know your schools. Plenty of private schools have substantial scholarships to offset attendance costs. Know ‘that’ private school before allowing your child to attend also. Staying involved in your child’s education is not just about ‘elite’ schools. It is also about understanding the content they will be presented. A good school is not necessarily ‘elite’. A good school is one that teaches a child reasoning skills at the appropriate level without telling them ‘the result’ based on the teacher’s political leanings.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to kyrrat. | February 21, 2021 at 8:14 am

      There are elite schools, and schools for the elite. The latter may be every bit as bad as a public school, but serve a purpose. It shelters precious Megan and Brandon from “those” people.

The divorce of corporate America from the Republican Party seems to be complete at this point.

I would say boycott but I suspect everyone reading legal insurrection already has that thought so it would be more helpful to ask what do we have to do to actually become the party of the workers?

Not being a news item it doesn’t deserve a official post but we get clobbered to soviet election levels in cities and what changes that?

    Morning Sunshine in reply to Danny. | February 20, 2021 at 8:13 pm

    I can’t boycott Coke. I have never bought any drinks with carbonation. Even my kids cannot stand the stuff (I guess cuz they were not raised on it?)

    well, that is not totally true – I do have a few tiny cans of coke to de-rust household items. I wonder – does the generic brand work for that?

      I could but generic soda from the supermarket is identical as a result I don’t actually buy coke.

      henrybowman in reply to Morning Sunshine. | February 21, 2021 at 12:56 am

      Carbonic acid is carbonic acid. But Naval Jelly is da bomb.

      The Friendly Grizzly in reply to Morning Sunshine. | February 21, 2021 at 9:14 am

      I read about people using coke for clearing off the fuzz from battery terminals. The very same thing can be done with bicarbonate of soda. Costs FAR less, nothing sticky remains behind, and you aren’t supporting your own demise by buying from an an anti-white company.

        JusticeDelivered in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | February 21, 2021 at 6:51 pm

        Rust and Coke = citric acid + Carbonation. You can buy citric acid, I buy for use in many household formulations 10-25 pounds at a time. There are many other chemicals I buy in bulk.

        For example, I make my own liquid laundry soap, costing about 5 cents a load, and it works better than the commercial stuff and it is formulated to be used as liquid fertilizer after washing clothing.

        There are an endless number of things foisted on consumers with staggering markups. When we buy that stuff it is with after tax dollars, and each dollar spent represents another dollar paid in taxes.

        Now, think about how many of the companies you buy the stuff from are promoting racism on whites and Asians.

      RandomCrank in reply to Morning Sunshine. | February 21, 2021 at 7:01 pm

      Coca Cola sells a whole lot more than soft drinks

The goal of this is NOT to convince people to hate themselves. That’s silly.

The goal is to convince them that they can only be semi-safe if they keep their heads down, keep their mouths shut, and comply with anything the powers that be tell them to.

Almost as important is convincing everyone in the world that Coke’s management belongs to The Good Guys and should be given a pass when the revolution comes and greedy capitalists are lined up against a wall.

The Friendly Grizzly | February 20, 2021 at 7:32 pm

“Instructor, ma’am?”
“Yes. You with the very white skin, red hair, and blond beard.”
“So that I may immerse myself in the culture desired by Coke, is it pronounced m********kah?? Or, is it m********ker?”

“Mzzz Instructor?”
“Yes. You with the straw-blonde hair in a long braid; what is your question?”
“I want to dress the part. Is FUBU still in business?”

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to The Friendly Grizzly. | February 20, 2021 at 8:29 pm

    “Instructor, ma’am?”
    “Yes. You with the very white skin, red hair, and blond beard.”
    “I identify racially as a black person. Do I have to take this course that is aimed at white people?”

    (even more silence)

    “Instructor, ma’am? I would sincerely like an answer to my question.”

    (instructors head explodes)

Sounds like ethnic cleansing to me.

Katy L. Stamper | February 20, 2021 at 8:07 pm

Well, the ph of Coke is so acidic, it eats out your esophagus and kidneys.

So, I had to quit it for medical reasons. Used to drink 2 or 3 a day, and now I have one every week or two….

Really bad!

    Lucifer Morningstar in reply to Katy L. Stamper. | February 20, 2021 at 8:37 pm

    Well, the ph of Coke is so acidic, it eats out your esophagus and kidneys.

    And I’ve heard it also makes an excellent cleanser when your car battery terminals get all grungy. Supposed to dissolve the buildup quite quickly. Never tried it but that’s what people have told me.

      Both Coke and Pepsi are used as enemas for impaction … they work! So when used the term is “Pepsi Challenge”.

      LibraryGryffon in reply to Lucifer Morningstar. | February 20, 2021 at 8:46 pm

      I’ve also read that it’s good for removing toilet bowl stains. Haven’t tried it before, but if I ever find a Coke company product in the house….

        It is excellent for eating away rust in toilets. You can also use coke to remove rust from any chrome item with a little elbow grease and the dark colored soda product (any type will do by the way, not just coke).

          DaveGinOly in reply to kyrrat. | February 21, 2021 at 2:05 am

          The above is true, carbonation makes water slightly acidic. But compared to the hydrochloric acid in your stomach, it’s, well, drinkable. But your stomach can take it because it produces worse to digest your food. “Acid reflux” is caused when stomach contents (including HCl) are forced up the esophagus, which is not built to withstand the acid. The “burning” being done is not just a feeling, it’s an actual chemical burn.

          If your esophagus can’t take carbonated water, you’re more delicate than most. Carbonated water can’t and won’t hurt most people. Because it is mostly water, it will dilute the acids in your stomach, and not increase your stomach’s acidity.

Is your company gaining a political officer soon? Seems all the rage.
I’m going to go less Coke as I can’t change what I am.

I’m really confused about all this – considering the big market in suntan lotion, lying in the sun, and tanning salons, aren’t white people already trying hard to make themselves less white? Probably started with the Indians calling us “pale-face.”

    JusticeDelivered in reply to jlronning. | February 21, 2021 at 7:35 pm

    Smart white people stay out of the sun. Dumb ones get skin cancer. Black and brown people can tolerate high intensity sun much better that whites.

    I am a quarter native American, and I tan with hardly any sunburn problems. My wife was very light skinned and our children have a lighter complexion that I, they all burn easily.

Lucifer Morningstar | February 20, 2021 at 8:33 pm

Whatever. All the white employees of Coca Cola™ should simply inform their superiors that they identify racially as black people and that as such they do not feel they should be required to take this racially based course for white people and any attempt to force them to complete this “course” would be racist.

It’s not just Coke.

It is anywhere Critical Race Theory is enacted. It is all through schools, all through the govt, all through big business.

Boycotting Coke isn’t the answer. Letting everyone know that CRT is standardized racism and pushing back against it is the answer.

Ironically, inclusion is represented by a Rainbow that is exclusive of black, brown, and takes a gay pride in the shredded remains of white. Diversity dogma, not limited to racism, requires people to be Pro-Choice and green. Progress is one step forward, two steps backward. #HateLovesAbortion

    n.n in reply to n.n. | February 20, 2021 at 9:24 pm

    re: diversity dogma, correction: you have to be Pro-Choice, selective, opportunistic, relativistic “ethical” quasi-religious or green

From colored people (i.e. low information attribute) to people of color (i.e. blocs, identity defined by skin color)… one step forward, two steps backward.

How about less Coke?

Diet Coke was my favorite drink. It’s now banned in my household. (That wasn’t easy.)

Does Coke have a program for blacks to act less black?

    JusticeDelivered in reply to | February 20, 2021 at 11:30 pm

    Blacks acting less black would greatly improve many aspects of their lives. Bringing black crime down to non-black averages would be a good start. Speaking clear proper English would open up more job opportunities. Raising their children to want to learn. I could write a book. I want to see blacks succeed on merit.

      Sadly, it is easier just to play victim. And that is compounded by your own kind working feverishly to keep you from moving on. I can only imagine that being a black nerd is 10x worse than being a white nerd.

      Mental illness is defined as doing the same thing and expecting a different result. I can’t believe that they are still trying to tweak the busing fiascos of the 1970’s. The end results are always that one segment pulls the other down while failing to be lifted at all. The change for the black culture needs to come from within their own community, but that community is frequently led by race husters and grifters whose sole purpose is to profit personally off of the perceived differences. I am still surprised that “The Wire” hasn’t been cancelled because it so completely showed the truth of Balmer, what and who needed to change, and why.

      As for me, I plan to be exceptionally white today in all of my endeavors. It is just who I am.

Antifundamentalist | February 20, 2021 at 9:56 pm

Did they forget what happened to Rachel Dolezal? If you are genetically white,it is socially unacceptable to try to pass for something other than (unless you are Elizabeth Warren). What is the Coca Cola Company playing at?

Coke goes all in on stupid.

Coca-Cola is prejudiced against white people. As a result, I am now prejudiced against Coca-Cola.

Eh, if you want a cola fix just drink RC Cola. It is more available (in the US, I can’t speak for overseas) in the south and Chicago but it tastes better than coke or pepsi.

I have trouble understanding the company’s official response. It seems to be saying that it didn’t create this content and this content is not the “focus” of its curriculum, but it doesn’t deny that it’s part of its curriculum. Or does it? I can’t tell. The gobbledegook is slathered on thickly.

    That’s the point.

    Brave Sir Robbin in reply to Milhouse. | February 21, 2021 at 1:23 pm

    Let translate for you. “We still have a substantial market comprised of smelly despicable deplorables. Therefore, for the time being, we need to be weaselly about expressing what we really think of them.”

    This should have been directly and clearly condemned, and the person responsible for its development and distribution disciplined, perhaps fired, and severance with all contracts and contractors who produced this vile racist content. Racism should not be tolerated.

ThePrimordialOrderedPair | February 21, 2021 at 1:27 am

What a shame that Coca-Cola has sunk so low. Back in the 70s, Coke was one of the few courageous companies that defied the arab boycott on Israel. Pepsi sucked up to the arabs for the cash. Now there’s not a hair’s width of difference between the two companies. Sad.

I’m old enough to remember this Coke commercial from the 70s. Guess they’ve moved on:

This shouldn’t surprise anyone.
Coke has it’s headquarters in Atlanta, headquarters of black separatism and black identity politics. They know what’s good for them, because they’ve been paying off to keep their facilities and trucks from having “accidents”.

Teaching racism to those that reel at the mere mention of racism.

It’s hard to wrap my brain around the notion of white privilege, growing up poor, in a single parent, albeit Caucasian household.
My way forward involved studying, hard work, night shifts, IBS, and now early retirement. I am proud of my little achievements, so they can just go pound sand. All of those nutters.

I feel bad for my nieces and nephews, hopefully their own work will be rewarded fairly. Racism, systemic racism,, really did not exist outside of academia, until it was created in order to eradicate it. I think we all see why this is happening…

    Danny in reply to amwick. | February 21, 2021 at 2:13 pm

    I grew up with it as part of the school curriculum.

    The theory is that because rich/powerful people are white they will relate to other whites giving whites an advantage in all things so even you a poor person with no power at all has white privilege.

    Also a major part of it is that society is generally racist (especially police) and that it is one for whites specifically.

    If you point out obvious holes in it (i.e. a black president) you will be attacked by the rest of the class and teacher and sent to the principles office.

      henrybowman in reply to Danny. | February 22, 2021 at 6:16 am

      As I was mentioning to my pal Warren Buffet over dinner at the French Laundry, it’s a good thing that all white people know each other. I have no idea how differently my life would have gone without those connections.

    Ironically the billionaire class (i.e. Mark Zuckerberg) are actually sacrosanct according to the religion of white privilege.

Mehron has a line of face makeup for actors that goes from Casper the Friendly Ghost white to B’rer Rabbit’s tar baby black. Just pick one that’s a couple of shades darker than your natural color and you’ll instantly be “less white.”

    DaveGinOly in reply to RandomName. | February 21, 2021 at 2:25 pm

    If you’re subject to a multi-day training on being less white, show up the second day with makeup such as what you’ve suggested. Tell the instructor you’re trying to be “less white.” Make the instructor tell you why it’s not OK to try to be something you’re not (violating a fundamental tenet of wokism) or accusing you of some kind of “appropriation.” Either way, the instructor’s argument would be counter to the premise of the instruction, that you are even capable of being “less white.”

So being oppressive, arrogant, ignorant, etc are all character traits inherent in whites. That’s not racist at all.

And do people of color get a pass on this “course” because they are inherently noble and humble ? Watch the NBA some time, Coke. Or a rap video. It’s non-stop rapid-fire chest-beating arrogance.

    henrybowman in reply to John Galt. | February 22, 2021 at 6:19 am

    Or just some old Cassius Clay interviews. I remember as a kid being appalled by his ungentlemanly commentary about his opponents. Today, his trash talk is nothing.

How is this not a textbook violation of 42 USC § 2000e-2? Or rather how do they think they can get away with this blatantly racist policy?

What comes to mind is King Solomon, his many wives, and their different cultures, faith included. Syncretism.

IMO, someone is eventually going to win a ‘hostile workplace’ lawsuit against one of these companies pushing this crap.

The pocketbook is where the rubber meets the road. What can we do in the meantime?
1. Don’t buy their products ( getting harder to find substitute for all the woke; Levi, Coke, Wells Fargo, BoA ECT, far too many to list)

2. If you own shares vote them yourself, don’t sign a proxy for some woke investment firm.

3. Charitable giving: don’t forget to vet these, an alternative is to simply donate to your own religious organization food pantry or something else local where you can be certain that you agree with the goal and can easily ‘follow the $’

    When some supposedly charitable organization calls, hang up on them. Charities rent their name out to hucksters, who will keep at best the bulk of the money, and at worst, all the money you send to them.

Coca Cola: Now less sales!

The ideology being pushed with this is EXACTLY the same attitude that existed which allowed slavery. A determination has been made that one race is less than, inferior to others, and those with that skin color….white…deserve to be punished…have less rights and having scorn and even hate for them is socially acceptable. The people of this skin color need to be pushed out of positions of power, have their voices silenced, be pushed to the back of the room, denied jobs, admission to schools, be held to laws that others of other skin colors are not. First their history needs to be erased then those of those skin color. This isn’t just blatant over the top racism it’s a run up to genocide.

This isn’t just blatant over the top racism it’s a run up to genocide.

    Stefan Molyneux has a video on YouTube in which he says that cancel culture is a dress rehearsal for mass liquidations and disappearances.

    There is an analogy to this in the military. In the day when soldiers were trained to shoot at bull’s eye targets, it was found that most men don’t fire their weapons in battle. So the military switched to the human silhouette target to condition soldiers to shoot at something that looked (at least vaguely) human. I’m not sure if it had the desired result, but the principle is the same.

Light a candle and curse the darkness.

To be white is to:
Be oppressive
Be arrogant
Be certain
Be defensive
Be ignorant
Be less humble
Not Listen
Not Believe
Be apathetic
Have White solidarity

If I am reading this correctly, then being more black/brown / colored?

Remove all vestiges of strength of character, self-assuredness, Be less certain, be more offensive, and have solidarity with those who aren’t white.

If this keeps up, I want to make sure that as I get older my family will have to make sure that I don’t have black doctors, nurses, care takers, or allow me in any way to be near people of color. Those people will look at me with hate, and more than likely beat the shit out of me in my most trying times.

No thanks.

People of color are dead to me. I am their chosen enemy, and I refuse to permit them to treat me as their enemy.

I guess race relations have taken a HUUUUGE leap forward. Thanks Liberals. You fuck everything up.

Thanks People of Color. Whites can no longer trust you.

    “People of color are dead to me. I am their chosen enemy, and I refuse to permit them to treat me as their enemy.”

    You are falling into the elitist’s trap. They are trying to divide you and set us against each other. That way, we are easier to rule as we focus on each other and not them.

    “People of color” (an odious term being foisted on us to divide humanity) are our allies, partners, brothers and sisters. “People of color,” when you think about it, is absolutely meaningless. Seek out people with the truth, kindness, tolerance, and humanity. You will find them in all places. Then make common cause, and they shall be steadfast friends for life.

      Well Brave Sir Robbin. You are going to need to be brave when 85 to 90% of the black population votes for the very same party that supports reparations, Black Lives Matter, Antifa, etc. The very same population that’s believes that whites are the devil.

      So, if I had to take 85-15 odds that the person taking care of me serving and cooking food in a restaurant, providing health care, and otherwise providing some other service, I’ll take my chances and opt out.

      I am positive that there are many people of color who are honorable and can be trusted not to spit in my food, abuse me while in a hospital bed, or not bust me along side my head for walking down the street.

      But unless those honorable people wear some kind of insignia that identifies them as such, I don’t know who to trust.

      I work on healthcare. I see the comments from the diversity meetings showing widespread support for the victim class.

      I invite all of those who think I am a racist to down vote my comments again.

      I wish you well.

        I don’t trust them anymore. Avoid them whenever possible.
        I don’t consider myself a white supremacist. But I do intend to survive and my best chances of doing that on the south side of Chicago is to minimize contact with especially the young blacks.

        I got a chuckle when Michelle Obama was whining about “white flight” to the Chicago suburbs leaving blacks to their own devices. My parents were part of that and I thank God they fled as my life would have been far different had they elected to stay in a black dominated neighborhood.

      People of brown and black color have much higher crime rates. A black male has the highest rate, probably about 10x, the stat for all blacks is over 7x, but black females are lower. Those indicate poor reasoning, ethics and morality. I am not suggesting that applies to every black, it is difficult to tell who is and is not a problem. Per capita numbers do matter.

        Brave Sir Robbin in reply to JusticeDelivered. | February 21, 2021 at 9:15 pm

        “People of brown and black color have much higher crime rates.”

        True, but this has nothing to do with the bio-mechanics of skin pigmentation. Liberal/progressive policies, which are in fact racist, has ghettoized black people, destroyed their families, made them dependent upon the state, and subjected them to control by a criminal class, both in their neighborhoods and in the toney sections of town where white liberals/progressive live who disdain these people, and look upon them as being no more capable than children that need their kindness to not just thrive, but even to survive.

        I knew a liberal businessman who counted on keeping black people poor so he could have a cheep source of itinerate labor to draw from. The welfare system existed, for him, as a means to maintain this itinerate labor force when he did not need them – that is, the tax payer was subsidizing his business and federal policy was keeping black people poor and dependent so they could be exploited when and as required. He was possibly the most cynical, mendacious, and racist person I have ever known. And he considered himself a friend to black people. Again, to him, they were children and needed like treatment.

        I suggest the voting patterns are result of dependency which is both purposefully imposed and malicious. African American crime, out-of-wedlock birth, murder, and drug use rates all soared in the mid-1960’s with the advent of the Great Society and the “War on Poverty.”

        It may be us versus them, but the them are not black people. Reach out and show common cause. They will join us.

          “It may be us versus them, but the them are not black people.”

          It is more complicated that that, it is use versus some of them. And there is no versus with some black people.

          I agree that welfare was pushed like a drug. I disagree that anyone forced people to become addicted to the drug. I have seen plenty of documentation that in much of Africa what they call family is nothing like our nuclear family. There is a reason why AIDS spread like wildfire in Africa.

          I have no problem with giving a hand up, as long as the person is willing to really work for it.

          “It is more complicated that that, it is use versus some of them. And there is no versus with some black people.”

          Some of them is “white” people too. I reject the whole notion of race. It has been created to separate people into controllable groups so they can be dominated or to set one group upon the other for nefarious purposes.

          Race is such an insidious problem in this country because it was used to justify enslavement of people. “White” people can be enslaved just as easily as “black” people. So the notion of race was used and reinforced so that poor “white” people would not worry about the powers that be would enslave them, and hence leave those enslaved in their bondage as it was no concern of theirs.

          But, also, we enslaved people, but had a political philosophy which rightly proclaimed all men were created equal. So to subvert that notion and justify slavery, we expanded upon the notion of differentiation between the “races” and claimed black people were somewhat less than human, and thus justify their enslavement.

          The truth is, one man can be enslaved as easily as another, and there are always people about who would enslave you, in one form or another, if allowed. The ancestors of people who were most recently enslaved should be the natural allies of all freedom loving people. Our success depends upon our ability to discern friend and foe, and persuade our friends of our common cause and that we may be steadfast and relied upon to the point of death.

          Then they will vote with us, and much more.

        I will be happy working hand-in-hand with any person of color who disavows the communist thugs running BLM, and their “mostly peaceful” riots. Other than a couple of respected black commentators (one of whom is now dead), I haven’t seen any prominent individuals or minority affinity groups that have done so.

        Sorry, but if every white presidential candidate in the GOP, no matter who he is or who he knows, is going to be hounded by the liberal press to “publicly disavow David Duke,” that’s the least that rational blacks can do towards unity with whites.

Forget Coke–this is why I will never, ever, join LinkedIn. Blech. I had to watch some mind-numbingly LinkedIn-produced/supported racist videos to get on a hiring committee last year, and I shan’t do that again. (We hired the white person. Videos didn’t take, I guess.)

I think this article partially misses the point when it is said, “You have learned that you are evil because of your skin color. . .” This concept of “whiteness” is more than the color of your skin. For example, some blacks are referred to by other blacks as “oreo”–white on the inside and black on the outside. In people’s minds, who embrace this thinking, you are a “real” black if you think a certain way; in supposedly “black” terms. I once saw an interview of a black girl who said she had been bullied by other black students as being “white” because she was too intellectual and succeeding in her studies by getting good grades. Another example, I think of the 1993 Harvard Law Review article by Cheryl I. Harris, “Whiteness As Property.” Various versions of this type of thinking, even with “high brow” society–which is a blatant form of reverse racism–has been around for a number of years and has become more popular with some in recent years.

A serious question, now that I won’t be buying any Coke (which I did yesterday before I read about this, but never again): Do the other soft drink companies do this too?

    You’ll only know when the SHTF at that company. How many times have I left an offensive company to take up with a alternative only to find out months later that the new guys were just as offensive.

    I mean, Fox News, right?

Walmart carries some generic pop, but not a very good selection of flavors. That is the lowest price. Kroger’s prices are really high on most things, but their Big K private label, 2 liters for .79, before CCP Wuhan Virus it would come on sale, .69, .50 and the best I ever saw was .50. problem, those all disappeared with the virus.

Also, you can make your own, and when doing so you can replace all or some of the sugar. Don’t buy the small countertop carbonators, cost to use them are outrageous. Get a CO2 tank like used on a beer keg.

I use a lot of green tea, with stevia and sometimes additional flavorings. It is high in antioxidants.

I work at AAA and all employees supervisor and above are REQUIRED to take this training or lose 5% of their pay.
