The slides included tips to learners on how to be "less white, less arrogant, less certain, less defensive, less ignorant and more humble."

"In the U.S. and other Western nations, white people are socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white," one of the slides read. "Research shows that by age 3 to 4, children understand that it is better to be white."
That seems a bit dumb.

Instead of asking one group to downgrade, it may serve everyone better if the other groups were encouraged to upgrade.

I can't dance, I hate rap, understand how to wear caps correctly, my underwear is optimally placed and not visible, I speak actual english..... I'm too white, there is no reforming me..... guess I will just continue not drinking coke like I have done for more than a decade by now anyway....

I guess the best thing to do is to openly drink Coke with your Brandy every chance you get. There's nothing as white as a "Brandy en Coke langs die braai" make it Buffelsfontein just for that extra added pinch of "arrogance"

Oh well, time for a large base of their market to stop buying their product and buy Pepsi or any other competitor's products.
Own goals...own goals everywhere.

Damn you. Of you go to a reeducation camp. You're not allowed to think about these things.

'Less white''?

Is this that BS where they say being punctual with a focus on meritocracy is racist?

"Be less white" ???? And Coca-cola is black in color, this would've been a great word play in a ad slogan......few years back.
