Coca-Cola is staging training seminars for employees, stressing for the need to “try to be less white,” with instructions to “be less oppressive, be less arrogant, be less certain, be less defensive, be less ignorant.”

The program, “Confronting Racism. Understanding what it means to be white. Challenging what it means to be racist,” is available online by Robin DiAngelo, who also authored the 2018 book “White Fragility.”

The company confirmed it was conducting the seminars, according to, to which a spokesperson stated the program was “part of a learning plan to help build an inclusive workplace.” The report did not say if the training was mandatory.

Reports first surface from an anonymous company employee and images included in a YouTube video.

Coca-Cola said “the video circulating on social media is from a publicly available LinkedIn Learning series and is not a focus of our company’s curriculum.”

“To be less white is to: Be less oppressive, be less arrogant, be less certain, be less defensive, be less ignorant, be more humble, listen, believe, break with apathy, break with white solidarity,” a slide from the presentation says.

“In the U.S. and other Western nations, white people are socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white,” the slide reads. “Research shows that by age 3 to 4, children understand that it is better to be white.”

“Try to be less white,” the training concludes.

One thought on “Coke Conducting Employee Seminars ‘to Be Less White’”
  1. This type of bullshit is what’s wrong with America ! Instead of asking white people to stop being successful and confident in their ability’s. They need to create schools that inspire blacks to be better at getting an education. To respect others views. To take pride in their country. To want to work with others. To not condemn others based on their skin color. To be invested in their kids education and futures. I feel a lot of blacks do. I know many. I’ve worked beside many. This putting down of what has made America strong and unique is what will divide our country even more. America is and has been the greatest nation in the history of the world. Because of men and women of all races. But not because we tried to suppress what made us great. But because we embraced it. And people! The very thing that Coke and other so called WOKE companies and entities are trying to do is, not make us better. But divide us and pit us against each other. Humans, no matter your race, will always take pride in their accomplishments, will always strive to be better, will always be arrogant. Hell that’s what companies actually look for no matter what they project. They don’t want whinny, lazy, non achievers. These types of people are leeches on our society.
