Hey Shelby!

However, as Coca-Cola stated, that training is NOT part of their learning curriculum.

Coca - Cola saying it`s not in their curriculum isn`t a denial.
It looks like someone did something outside of the norm and Coke would like to put it behind them ASAP.

Not sure WHY, but perhaps because it's written TO white people BY a white person (and so, is that truly racist?

If it`s meant to stir the pot, yep.
If it`s by someone who can`t be bothered to ask Black Folks how they feel about the subject.
It`s Arrogantly Stupid with an Air of Superiority.

What bothers me, though, is that given the racial climate in this country (the USA) there are going to of course be white people who blame black people for it. That WE want white people to be "less white." But black people don't want white people to be "less white." We just want those people who have whatever biases against black people (and that includes some black people) to stop looking down on, mal-judging, criminalizing... and even killing... "us" just for being black.

Which comes right back to "Listening" to Black Folks.
Instead of telling them and everyone else, what they think/want/need.

I have no idea what it`s like to live as a Black Person in the USA.
I`m a White guy living in the Canadian Mountains.
How much would I have learned, if I "told" You and Miss Sylvia about your lives?...Not a thing.
I learned because I listened.

But I hope that helps shed some light on my "feelings" about this particular issue.

It does.
