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."

On Friday, Karlyn Borysenko, an activist who supports banning critical race theory, shared images from an internal whistleblower of the company's online racism training. The slides included tips to learners on how to be "less white, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant and more humble."

Just imagine for a second they had said be less Jewish or Black or anything else. The world would end.

Just so you know, if you are white you are arrogant, certain, defensive, ignorant and not humble.

Though I'm sure our woke progressive members will be quite happy with Coke's idea.

It was a stupid thing to include in there.
I wonder how they'd respond is people started browning their skins (not direct black but in a gradient from white to end up black, lol).

The world would probably still go on and the fact that there's (white) conservative backlash means it is as much an issue for white people as it may have been for the race/ethnic groups you list. I assume those are the most prickly, in your opinion.
