Coke Went Woke and the Left Still Isn’t Happy

Coke Went Woke and the Left Still Isn’t Happy. By Stacey Lennox.

Coca-Cola was outed for sending their employees to training on how to be “less white.” …

Coca-Cola also sent a notification to their legal firms to tell them that they would monitor their outside legal teams’ diversity. If a firm does not meet the standards for workforce diversity specified by Coca-Cola, it will receive a rate that is 30% lower. …

Yet, neither of these woke moves kept Coca-Cola from being the subject of protests. On Saturday, #BoycottCoke was trending on Twitter. Some participants were suggesting boycotting all other brands that serve Coke products.

The company’s sin was donating to politicians in Georgia who co-sponsored election security laws currently in the state legislature. This legislation aims to roll back temporary voting procedures approved during the pandemic and ensure there would not be outside funding of county election offices in the future. …

The interesting lesson from Coca-Cola’s last three months is that you cannot woke your way out of criticism. The left is generally miserable and will never be satisfied no matter how many times you engage in the behavior they demand. It will be interesting to see if large corporations will ever understand this fundamental rule. People who call themselves progressives never stop progressing, and the rules they set today may be completely different tomorrow.

Think I prefer the taste of Pepsi now.
