Coca-Cola Fights White Supremacy By Cancelling Vanilla Coke.

Never heard of Vanilla Coke and had to look it up to be sure it's real. Old dino remembers when white supremacy WAS real. It's race hustlers like Al Sharpton, BLM and all those woke and Coke jokes who still fantasize the IS.

    This is a Babylon Bee article. It is satire

      It should be identified as such in any posting here. Not everyone recognizes Babylon Bee, which I enjoy reading, as satire instead of literal fact.

      A survivor of major central nervous system trauma and a stroke and one who suffers from PTSD, though I function independently I am mentally one of the walking wounded to the extent that I cannot distinguish between truth and "just kidding" without help. Posting satire material without flagging it as such is, by my standards, the moral equivalent of dumping marbles on the floor and not warning a blind person who approaches them of the danger.

        I'm not sure the person who originally posted it knew it was satire. It appears they were duped as well.

          Unlikely, because that person posts very often and I am pretty sure is familiar with Babylon Bee. Let's see if that person posts a reply here affirming being duped or instead disparaging us for being "mentally defective" and not identifying satire.

          Freedom includes the right to exist without guilt, even if disabled, even if not conforming in thought processes, as long as we don't interfere with anyone else's rights. Using guilt, shame, aggressive teasing, disparaging comments, or other tools of harassment to enforce popular ways of thinking is a well-known tool of our political enemies and has no place here. Dividing us into those who recognize satire and those who don't is dividing us and is destructive.

            the purpose of the Babylon Bee is to push the edge just enough to be believable and to be satirical.

            Clearly this was a successful article for them, as so many here believed it without checking the source.

            The either or view that his intention was thinking we are mentally defective or was duped himself leaves little room for nuance. Why assume the worst?

            If you feel distraught that you were unaware this was satire, you have the freedom to take responsibility or blame another.
            Taking responsibility I believe is the way of those in the proverbial Gulch.

              “If you feel distraught that you were unaware this was satire, you have the freedom to take responsibility or blame another.”

              If I am offended by what someone else says or writes, that’s strictly my problem. You’re right about that issue. But I have the right to speak up about my feelings in response. The announcement of an unpopular opinion or an embarrassing fact may offend the narrow-minded or the politically correct, but such discourse is necessary in free society and the offense when it occurs is part of the price paid for free speech. That kind of offense is unpreventable. What I object to is speech or writing that provides no facts or opinions or constructive arguments that can instead be made in a straightforward way, therefore without merit in the context of political dialog, and has the downside of risking confusion among some of us. Saying that satire is fun or makes political points is no defense, because if it is clearly labeled as such then its benefits are preserved and its downsides do not exist.

              If there is a case for posting satire without its being clearly identified as such, let’s learn what it is. I make my case against such postings.

              Highlighting cognitive defects, here in the case of satire detection, is essentially the same as using peer pressure to demand thought-process conformity, exactly what leftist militants do. We need to respect each other including the right to think differently from each other.

                brightwater - yes. To be honest, I do have a problem with separating satire from news. I read the news on several outlets, it seems so crazy I think- surely this is satire!
                I then read Babylon and think- looks quite realistic.

                  With the very very improbable activity in our government and among the leftists nowadays, we can no longer jump to the conclusion that something absurd is in fact satire the way we could a century ago.

      Coke cola wants to train their white employees to be less white. That is not satire. That is anti-Caucasian. Coke can up the managements ass is where it should be shoved. Humor only works if it has some reality to it.

    I wonder how exercised the Woke crowd gets about Orange Vanilla Coke. I just enjoyed one this morning. And not once did I think about "orange man bad", or vanilla being a dog whistle for white supremacy. I just like to have an Orange Vanilla Coke occasionally.

    Damn...now I gotta quit drinking Coke Products. Woke Bastards. I recently dropped Land O" Lakes butter because they banished the indian maiden. Last time I saw their package there was just a green patch where she used to sit. They didn't even make a new logo...just sent the little Indian Maiden packing. AHHH what the heck....she was a minority...who at the corporate office actually cares about an individual minority getting screwed over....much more important to virtue signal to the whitey, white, white social warrior complainers...who by the way...probably don't even eat butter....they probably use margarine because it is plant based.

      How about Aunt Jemima syrup. I think this is a plot to destroy us.

        Me dino has seen movies with Caucasian actors--some with blue eyes!--playing American Indians, Mexicans, Orientals and more rarely even black people. In fact, the first "talkie," "The Jazz Singer," had a white guy in black face who sang to his white "mammy" in the audience at the end of the movie. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PIaj7...
        So that's the ticket! Have a white lady dress up like Aunt Jemima so black people won't feel oppressed.
        (Hmm, methinks maybe my posting all those The Babylon Bee links is starting to get to me).

          "Have a white lady dress up like Aunt Jemima so black people won't feel oppressed."

          Won't work...they will call that Cultural Appropriation! Why Whitey would want to appropriate the culture of the poor downtrodden black person in the ol racist USA....but if you do you will be criticized if you do. You just need to understand that lo Whitey is born with the "Original Sin" of racism. As such Whitey is bound like a slave to atone for this original sin....no matter that no one now alive had anything to do with it. Also most white americans are not even descended from people who owned slaves and got no advantage from it. The only thing the average Cracker has gotten in the last 40 years is to be actively discriminated against in hiring, government contracting, school admissions, etc. If I didn't know better I would say that was what you call...."Institutional Racism"

          I found out the other day that a little Indian girl that Little Joe liked in Bonanza was actually Dawn Wells (Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island).

            Little Joe did seem to have a certain femininity about him.
            Aha! Another old dino memory jogged. In separate episodes I watched, each Cartwright son had a girlfriend who died.
            Back during the Sixties when TV Guide was worth reading, I recall an article that proclaimed that all the Cartwrights carried a "kiss of death" curse.

    Oh, come on. That sounds like something out of The Onion. What's next--no more vanilla ice cream? No milk? No rice? No coconut? No marshmallows? No "white meat"? No white sugar? No white teeth? No white wedding gowns? Have they looked at "white" people? Only albinos come close to being white. Caucasian skin is beige or pink and every shade in between. How far is this insanity going to spread? Will snow have to be pre-dyed to a mud color before it is allowed to fall?

    Let us draw a lesson from all this about the mind's glitches in miscataloguing concepts and extrapolating irrationally.

      Wow, did you jog an ancient old dino memory. When I was a little kid, I had a sizable box of crayons that went way beyond basic colors.
      One of the more exotic ones was labelled "FLESH." It was actually a Caucasian skin color.
      Bet big boxes of crayons don't have that anymore!

      Why Fake News works on the behalf of the Democrats.
      It was NOT on Fake News that me dino heard (a week before Nov. 3) that an unspecified number of voters had complained, "If I had only known about Hunter, I never would have voted for Biden."

          Yup . It has been said and it is true. There is no QAnon. There is a Q and that Q posts or has posted Questions or info from open source sites. Then people anonymously reply with the research they have found on the topic. Hence they are called anons. It is not screened or censored. Some of the anons posts are golden and some are garbage. Q has said do your own research and use your own reason and logic to come to conclusion. Even people on the Gulch forum have stated that it is a Chinese psyop and it allowed Biden to win. Think about it.....Biden didn’t win they stole a landslide victory from Trump. Trump had the greatest base of supporters in history. Q definitely played a role in building that base. Q led the anons to info about many crimes being committed many months or even years before it was brought to some in the public’s attention. When as an example I posted about Epstein and his Island no one new anything about it. Then a year or so later it was all over the news. Same with NXVIM. Same with FISA abuse . Same with election fraud as well as more things yet to come to light. Only Trump has been more maligned than Q. They hate Q because he helps expose the nasty $hit they do. Who gets the most flak the one who is over the target.

    Or maybe it was a good excuse to dump a lesser product and look woke. I remember during Obama when some intl. corps. in US stopped flying the US flag, but later returned to it when Trump came in. Oligarchs know where there brad is buttered.

    I have wondered about vanilla ice cream, vanilla extract for cooking, as well as white chocolate.

    This whole racist thing is STUPID. At this point, I dont even want to see or hear from black people until they wise up and drop the entitlement thing fostered by the left.

      Add chocolate syrup to be praised for the integration but you had better pour that syrup on to avoid scorn for creating a minority,
      These days woke deadhead snowflakes are capable of accusing folks of anything.
