    It's poor wording, but it's not incredibly concerning.

    I'd say whoever wrote, and signed that off, would benefit from some coaching, and that's about it.

    Most people have bigger problems than worrying about a company's internal training documentation, however poorly worded.

    I agree with Coca Cola being less white.

    If it was more white it would be Tab Clear and no one wants to go back to those days!

    Oh I’m sorry, I thought your point was that “seemingly every time black people get oppressed they”...”burn down businesses and private property”.

    I didn’t realise it was meta racism designed to satirise the topic at hand. How convenient.

    People can get racist jokes and still think they’re racist you know.

    It's written by Robin DiAngelo, she basically "discovered" white fragility.

    As with everything, context is key. His words were sarcastic to drive home a point - I understood it in the context of the thread. Just say sorry in a sincere manner and move on.

    That excuse wore thin with 30 years ago with Chubby Brown and Jim Davidson.

    It was an explanation, not an excuse.

    She would have a field day if she saw this thread. This forum is a book in itself.

    You’re looking like one of those people who takes everything far too seriously and always kills a conversation. Why are you so dead certain he’s being an evil nasty racist rather than making a point which has been spoon fed to you so you can understand? Are you doubling down because you’re too proud to admit you misread/misunderstood?

    On topic: anyone who finds coca colas choice here defensible needs their head looking at. You don’t fight racism with racism. It’s short sighted and naive. MLK had the right answer people just don’t want to listen.
