I can see their point though about being less white. Hair like this is a mission to maintain and in addition to having to put on all that skin toner every morning there is the risk of running late for work. Makes sense. It will be difficult though because everybody wants to be white.

Step aside.

Ja I blame you vit okes for suffering from white guilt to such an extent, that you come up with ridiculously overcompensated ideas like this Cock-a-Cola episode.

Newsweek wants clicks,

"The Confronting Racism course featuring Robin DiAngelo is no longer available in our course library, at the request of the 3rd party content provider we licensed this content from," LinkedIn vice president of corporate communications Nicole Leverich told Newsweek in an email on Monday.

that course didn't go away because Coca Cola and some non-mainstream outrage.

DiAngelo's course have been long available, and will continue to be available.

Like if I were to just mention white people and sensitive in the same sentence, how many mentions do you think I will get?
Aaaah. Maybe, as a white person, while being less certain, (as per Coca-Cola's teachings) I should also be less sensitive?

Guess they missed that one hey. :D

Cartoon network stuff at the end...God help us.

These people are frikken nuts, not only have they drank the kool aid they have downed the whole jug.
Imagine teaching kids this kind of stuff it's tantamount to teaching kids to self-hate.

In SA, race is permanently on the table. Just see the EFF statement I posted today.

The third-party provider is Big Think, they authored the course on LinkedIn Learning,


Here it is on their website,

To see how she applied it to our context it is viewable in the UCT video I posted somewhere earlier.
