Brexit champion Nigel Farage has slammed Coca-Cola for allegedly requiring workers to take coaching urging them to “be less white”.
Slides from the LinkedIn-based coaching initially circulated on social media after being shared by psychologist Karlyn Borysenko.
One explains that “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.” Another merely urges the view: “Try to be less white.”
Responding to the scandal on his YouTube channel, Reform UK occasion chief Nigel Farage lamented that he had thought progress was being made towards the “Black Lives Matter madness”, however that the Coca-Cola revelations have been one other instance of the company world having “lost its marbles” because of the motion.
“So, to be less white means you’ll be less arrogant, less ignorant — I mean, the list goes on: ‘try to be less white’,” he stated.
“And the inference here is clear, isn’t it? That white is bad; white means supremacist; white means you look down your noses at everybody else; white means you are guilty!” he continued.
“And this is what Coca-Cola is foisting upon their employees in the USA?” he requested, expressing his hope that it might not “cross the Atlantic”.

“[U]ntil we have more people, far more people, in British politics and British media unafraid to stand up and tell the truth, unafraid of the extreme left screaming ‘racist!’ at them, event though they know themselves that that would not be true, until we do this, I fear we continue down this route,” Farage warned.
“And what is telling white people they are guilty and bad, what is that doing?” he requested.
“Do you think it means that white people who are exposed to this suddenly think: ‘Ah, yes! I must become a better person; I must make sure I exhibit within myself no prejudice towards anybody.’ Or does it actually make white people really, really angry, and actually make them feel that society is now more divided than ever?”
The former UKIP supremo steered that the inheritors of Martin Luther King’s marketing campaign for “justice, fairness, and equality” not need individuals to be judged purely on “character, honesty, integrity, intelligence — no, they want us all to be divided up into different groups, different groups based on race, gender, and sexuality”.
“[W]hen we are confronted with this nonsense, when we are told we must atone for the past, we must confess our guilty simply because we’re white, or any other colour, or any other faith, we’ve just gotta say ‘enough is enough’,” he insisted.

Coca-Cola, for its half, has been cautious to keep away from denying that the “try to be less white” presentation is a obligatory a part of coaching for any of its workers, but it surely has claimed it’s “not a focus of our company’s curriculum”.
“Our Better Together global learning curriculum is part of a learning plan to help build an inclusive workplace. It is comprised of a number of short vignettes, each a few minutes long. The training includes access to LinkedIn Learning on a variety of topics, including on diversity, equity, and inclusion,” they stated in a assertion, including that they’d “continue to refine this curriculum.”
Last month, the fizzy drinks company introduced it might be requiring a quota of “diverse attorneys” from legislation corporations doing work for it, with charges for corporations that fail to meet its targets having their charges docked by 30 per cent.
