Coca cola wants its employees to be less white. Are they going to have to wear blackface? No, that would be racist.
“Coca Cola has forced employees to take a mandatory course on LinkedIn to learn how to be “less white,” leaked images from a whistleblower reveal.
The images, reportedly leaked to Karlyn Borysenko by an internal whistleblower at Coca-Cola, show a course by Robin DiAngelo entitled “Confronting Racism” being taken by an employee at the company, with the logo showing in the top right hand corner of the page.
Coca-Cola employees are taught to be “less white” by the course, which implies that to be white is to be arrogant, defensive, ignorant, and oppressive. The course also claims that in the West, white children are socialised “to feel that they are inherently superior,” and that “one-time workshops” on racism are not enough, claiming that people must be regularly indoctrinated by “anti-racism.”
The course is available on the business network LinkedIn’s “LinkedIn Learning” site, which allows people to upload courses on various topics, both free and paid, giving companies easy access to training materials for their staff.
When viewing the 1,016 people on LinkedIn who had “liked” the course, National File was able to confirm that one of the most recent likes was an employee of Coca-Cola America, giving more supporting evidence that the screenshots were legitimate.”
It will not be hard to give up drinking coke.
