It seems as though Coca-Cola is in bad graces with a sizeable group of people now, thanks to leaked images from their anti-racism diversity training courses.
The soft drink company went viral online after a leaker shared images of their diversity seminars, which showcased polarizing quotes such as “be less white” that almost immediately had plenty of users up in arms against the company.
Coca-Cola, being an equitable company that cares about not offending woke folk, recently required its employees to take “anti-racist” training.
In other words, Coca-Cola taught its employees how to be modern racists.
The photos of the training, which can be found on the LinkedIn platform, were provided by a brave Latino whistleblower who most certainly could lose his/her job for giving us this peek under the corporate hood. If you want more info, there’s an in-depth video here from the source who shared it.
Let’s break this garbage down:
The training uses a curriculum from paid race hustler Robin DiAngelo. It lumps “white” and “racism” in the same category because New Racism says that oppressing or belittling others who are different from you was a thing exclusively invented by white Western civilization.
It proves this by taking a modern understanding of “race,” a subjective term that broadly categorizes people based on how well their skin protects against ultraviolet radiation and uses it like a club to tell white people how they are at fault for sin and suffering in the world.
The only way to have your sins of “privilege” washed away is by giving monetary indulgences to “better” white people like Robin DiAngelo. You will need to keep making regular offerings to prove you are an “ally” from now until you die.
After establishing that white people feel superior because of “research,” the slides begin to ramp up the guilt levels.
If you grew up in black or Hispanic communities, you’ll know that no black person has ever thought themselves better than whites or other groups.
The slides continued, saying that to be “less white” means to be “less” of a negative list of adjectives.
This is straight-up racism!
According to AWM:
Coca-Cola employees shared a mixed reaction to the diversity training. Some white employees even felt attacked and threatened to stage a boycott of the leading soft drink brand.
“This seems like blatant racial discrimination to this employment lawyer,”one self-identified employment lawyer tweeted.
In response, a Coca-Cola spokesperson released a (fairly lukewarm) statement that did not deny that the training took place, but insisted that its message “is not a focus of our company’s curriculum.”
“The video and images attributed to a Coca-Cola training program are not part of the company’s learning curriculum. Our Better Together global training is part of a learning plan to help build an inclusive workplace. It is comprised of a number of short vignettes, each a few minutes long,” Coke said in a statement.
“The training includes access to the LinkedIn Learning platform on a variety of topics, including on diversity, equity, and inclusion,” the statement continued. “The video in question was accessible on the LinkedIn Learning platform but was not part of the company’s curriculum. We will continue to listen to our employees and refine our learning programs as appropriate.”
Lastly, “TRY TO BE LESS WHITE.” And if you think that’s racist, then YOU are the problem.
