Coca cola training program says "be less white" Empty Coca cola training program says "be less white"

Post by Tommy Monk Mon Feb 22, 2021 10:38 am




COCA-COLA employees were told in an online training to "try to be less white" in an effort to combat racism discrimination.

Photos of Coca-Cola's online training seminar were shared on social media this week, showing slides that featured tips on how "to be less white," including being "less ignorant," and "less oppressive."

More anti white racism!

Oh dear!

If it's true that Coca Cola have approved using this for online training, of course it's divisive and racist.
It's creating trouble not healing it.
SOME white people are some or all of the below, SOME black people are too, All this can do is to cause more discrimination and racial mistrust than already exists in the world.

I drink about one every 6 months. But only Mexican cokes in a bottle at mom and pop taco places. It's made with real sugar instead of corn syrup. Even then, I get my sugar fix for months after one.

Hahaha....I am probably less white than most without actually not being not white, if you get my drift.

If I was on that course, I'd be like....Coco Cola! Change the colour of your vile brew from brown to clear because as it stands it's just not reflecting what you're preaching. It should be no colour at all if you'd "like to build the world a home and furnish it with love. Grow apple trees and honey bees and culturally diverse gender free turtle doves..."

It's hard to imagine why they thought they had to categorize all those traits as being white traits; surely they must have had someone who realized that when this was made public, there'd be an uproar.

this is what happens when people don't speak out against such insanity and hatred. It gets dismissed as 'just a few nutters/extremists', then it starts taking a foothold and ends up becoming the norm.

As Maddog said, this isn't something new, it's been happening for years

i'm sure you are well aware of that

The prominent German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer is accredited with analyzing reaction to true statements and ideas. They are often not recognized initially; instead, the process of acceptance is long and circuitous. His construct highlights three stages for the recognition of truth:

1. Ridicule
2. Violent opposition
3. Acceptance as self-evident

Arthur Schopenhauer. The World as Will and Representation (1818).

I gather this assures that statements go through a test or challenge, before becoming accepted.

People should be encouraged from childhood to have respect for what they are, if you don't respect yourself how can you respect others.

I applaud the people who walked out, Hopefully it wasn't only the white people that made a stand. That message is insulting to everyone.

''“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”''

Joseph Goebbels

I, too, thought of Goebbels in the context of this issue.  I suppose that is the reason that society uses the ridicule/opposition/acceptance trilogy.  It's a filtration device, to make sure that an idea is well-tested...and only the valid get through, the invalid gets rejected.

If you're into deeper thought on the subject—and your recognition of the underlying concepts seems to indicate you are—look into, also, Alexis de Tocqueville, and his theory of “The Tyranny of the Majority”, in Chapters 15 & 16, of his Democracy in America (1834).  https://www.gutenberg.org/files/815/815-h/815-h.htm  He laments that in a period of democracy and 'rule-of-the-people', newer/original thoughts have a more difficult time penetrating into recognition and acceptance.

For this reason, modern philosopher (deceased) Herbert Marcuse has gone to the opposite wall, and proposed repressive tolerance…a kind of tamping down of old, hackneyed ideas, so that new ideas have an equal, competing chance in belief systems.  See, A Critique of Pure Tolerance (1965), Essay "Repressive Tolerance," with additional essays by Robert Paul Wolff and Barrington Moore Jr.  See also: One-Dimensional Man: Studies in the Ideology of Advanced Industrial Society (1964); see generally, Reason and Revolution: Hegel and the Rise of Social Theory (1941).

The prominent German philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer is accredited with analyzing reaction to true statements and ideas.  They are often not recognized initially; instead, the process of acceptance is long and circuitous. His construct highlights three stages for the recognition of truth:

1. Ridicule
2. Violent opposition
3. Acceptance as self-evident

Arthur Schopenhauer. The World as Will and Representation (1818).

I gather this assures that statements go through a test or challenge, before becoming accepted.


''“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”''

Joseph Goebbels
