"We Gotta Be LESS WHITE" ? Nah, We Gotta Be LESS STUPID

    What is astonishing to me is that the board of directors and management team of any corporation but especially a “publicly listed”, large-cap, broadly owned, multinational, such as Coca-Cola Corporation has as its first “fiduciary duty” to advance the interests of its shareholders. Where are all those attorney’s who have made (and want to make more) money pursuing shareholder derivative suits ? … Every public company, their directors and management, that is pursuing social justice discrimination as well as ESG causes should be besieged with lawsuits documenting these “breaches of fiduciary duty”. Where are the “activists” ? WTF is wrong with these “greedy bastards” ? There’s money to be made !

    Well, I’m a little less white than I used to be- I have a suntan.
    And I doubt I’ll ever meet anyone face-to-face who might have the courage (or stupidity) to ask or demand that I be “less Caucasian.”

    I really love being big, strong, ugly, and a Yi Dan- it’s truly a blessing.
    Oh- and I also really love being Caucasian.

    At least half this country needs to be less retarded.

    coke is a multinational corporation,
    and whites are the minority in the world.

    Throw the bottle or can in the street when you’re done with the drink. Extra points for smashing a glass bottle.
    Would that do?

    Do not purchase anything from the Coca Cola company. It is an extreme racist corporation.

    Pepsi supports BLM, a racist organization, as do many other companies. Coca-cola makes everything from Dasani water to Simply Pure orange juice-hundreds of products. Boycotting sounds great, but would require going back to making everything from scratch.

    I like the idea of everyone staying home for two weeks and buying nothing and keeping the tv, internet, etc. turned off as a protest to starve the Beast. Without our money and without the ability to sell our tracking information, they would take a real hit financially. During that time we could visit in person with friends and family, read books, and spend time outdoors. Imagine the mental health benefits from a break from the news.

    Giving up soft drinks is pretty easy. You can give up Coke and Pepsi at the same time.

    I have been a Diet Coke (and then Coke Zero) consumer for a long time, but 2 years ago as part of my weight loss strategy, I gave up artificial sweeteners and most carbs. Since then, I drink mostly tea I make myself, occasional coffee, and water, filtered from the tap.

    Of course, that means I can’t boycott them, since I’m not buying their products in the first place.

    Major corporations are being led to stop caring about shareholders and instead embrace “stakeholders” which include employees, some customers, and community activists, of course.

    I’m not kidding.

    Could we politely ask Cuck-a Kola to be a little less brown?
    Or would that be an “R-word” offense?

    Know what I’m drinking right now?

    Plain assed filtered water.

    Tap water run through our Brita Pitcher that is kept filled in the fridge.


    3 times a day I will make an instant mud using the same.dam.water.

    Sometimes, late in the day, I will down a Bud tallboy or 2.

    One day about 10 years ago I just stopped buying soda water because I was just throwing it away. Most of the time I was concentrated on my work so the ice would melt and the soda water would become unappealing so I would dump it and pour another from the 2-liter trashcan full in the fridge.

    Pour, drink, dump, repeat.

    Day after day after day.

    I got tired of buying soda water to just mostly dump down the drain, so I stopped. Just like that.

    My wife still drinks cokes, the little tiny ones in a can. Couple years ago I took a small hit off one and it dam near killed me. The carbonation was exactly like devil-lava-poison. Burnt the hell out of my tongue. And the flavor was something from hell itself, a completely unidentifiable flavor, like nothing else out there. I wondered, “How in the hell did I consume that stuff for so long? Why didn’t it kill me long ago?”

    Funny, when I was a kid in the ’50s and ’60s we hardly ever drank soft drinks. My parents just didn’t buy them. Maybe once or twice a year my mother would get a few of those Winn Dixie/KwikChek soda waters and divvy them up amongst us 5 kids and we thought we were in heaven. Other than that, we always drank water and sometimes Kool-Aid.

    I’ll prolly never drink that stuff again. In fact, my internal system may not let me! The poison! It Burns!

    jeezis, where’s my editor?
    That 2nd paragraph should read, One day about 10 years ago I just stopped buying soda waters because I was just throwing it away. And “appealing” should be “unappealing”.

    Can’t stand cola of any kind, and the only soft drink I’ll consume is ginger ale, when I have a stomach ache. Mineral water is the go-to here, along with a morning coffee and a nightcap IPA.

    ghost bows deeply to his silent editor Miss Olive and her cohort. wink
