Default Coca Cola “Try to be less white”

I am far from being racist, and I am getting a bit sick of being told I am just because I’m white.

I'm not racist.
I don't dislike anyone because of their race.

It's what they do, how they act, what they stand for that makes the difference.

There's plenty of white people I hate........
plenty. Maybe the most since there's more of them.

Political affiliation is the new group to hate.

Screw coke and their idiot social justice racial shaming crap. I’m not a boycott type but this makes it a no brainer. Screw them.

Coke should probably determine how much white money they take in everyday. F them.

Wonder if Coke is going to start using grizzly and black bears in their adds, instead of polar bears.

F them, the woman who put together said training, and everyone else who shares this belief. It is literally a definition of racism.

This bashing me because I'm white is starting to piss me off. What the eff did I do. No one, black, white, red, yellow should be shamed of their heritage.

"A spokesperson told The Washington Examiner that the video was accessible to Coca-Cola employees as part of its 'Better Together global training', which is designed 'to help build an inclusive workplace."

Aren't they ALL Inclusive by working on the same team and for the same company?


Guess I'm getting too old for this crap because we're all being told we're not inclusive enough - which is the furthest thing from the truth. A minority of the population is accurately accusing a much smaller % of being racist - and we're all paying the price. I'm NOT part of the problem and I can't be part of the solution because I was born the wrong color. But IF I can be less white, that'll help?

So Vanilla Coke will be cancelled then...

I just try to look at these things if they were turned 180° the other way.

Imagine what would happen if a major company hired someone to tell its minority employees to be less [insert "non white" ethnicity here]?

I generally have no preference when choosing between coke and pepsi.....this makes the decision easy.

Why racial disputes at all, if you are an adequate person, then no one cares what color your hands are

It's the whole white privilege thing......which I don't even know what that means. I'm a law abiding citizen, work hard every day, pay my taxes and my bills.....how am I more privileged than anyone else that does the same thing? Tone down the whiteness......I would love to know the definition of that. I don't like Coke anyway but I'm not supporting any of their company products, if they don't want my white money that's fine with me.

Never really drank soda of any kind but this makes the decision even easier. I won’t apologize for being white and I damn sure wont try to be less white, whatever that means

Never liked Coke. I use RC Cola for a drink now and then. Here's a link to wiki with coka cola brands.
