By referring their employees to an online course was Coke trying to be more inclusive or less inclusive?

Is including Black and Brown people the problem people have with Coke right now?

    Just a reminder:  Coca Cola (Coke) was invented by John Stith Pemberton who was a Lieutenant Colonel in the Confederate Army.  Still wanna be drinkin' Coke?

    They are bowing to the whine of the few boisterous thin skinned out there who believe imposing their insecurities upon others is a good thing.

    Coke is just another corporation trying immunize itself from claims of racism and to publicize efforts to avoid the legislation it fears coming out of Washington. Sort of like the auto industry preemptively announcing a bunch of electric vehicles, Disney and the NBA paying fealty to China and the fashion industry signing all VP Harris's relatives to modeling deals.

    They were telling folks they should be less white.  That would be racist and it's clearly less.

    All around, Coke was trying to appear proactive out of fear or cancel culture. They and their leadership believe in nothing other than profits and risk aversion.

    It's racist to make them do an online course because POC are less likely to have internet access.
