    I said it.

    Because in February, Coke told their employees to "Be less White."

    I am white...they do not need my business.

    Well I didn't out you m2c. You should have put it in quotation marks which would have let me know it was not your words at all but you were simply quoting someone. Context matters as does precision and clarity. Next time please use quotation marks so I won't blame you for stupid dumb. Okey dokey? Thank you for your reply. As you may have noticed from another question I asked COKE IS THE WHITE MAN'S DRINK. Pepsi was promoted to blacks. So your quoting any source who doesn't know that didn't put YOU in a good light. Thanks for the confession though. I appreciate it. Happy Friday to thee and thine! :)

    What I said was not a direct quote...it was a play off of what they said. Which was "Try to be less white." So quotes would not be proper to use. 

    It was a big deal....I figured you knew. On news and internet...lots of memes. 
    I know you watch a lot of news. 

    This is likely an example of the media bias...left wing bias by not covering the story.  The right wing media does the same thing...ie. Fox has not devoted much time to the Gaetz story. (So has been reported...I have not watched them for a long time now)   
    Much of the media bias is in seeing what stories are ignored and what are covered.

    Sometimes when I think about how blacks are treated  by whites I wish I was less white. Cheers! This post was edited by Nanoose at April 9, 2021 1:54 AM MDT

    As an Armenian American I don't think of myself as WHITE Nanoose. I think of myself as a "person of color". Too much baggage that is distinctly disgusting comes with being a bright white. In my opinion. Thank you for your reply m'dear and Happy Friday to thee and thine! :)

    I just Googled coke  asking it's workers to be less white. The reason they said it was to help fight racisum  - sort of a walk a mile in their shoes sort of thing. So I  think it is a good idea. Cheers!

    That would be fine if that was all it was.  But they told their employees to "Be Less White" and then they told them what being white means...it was  racist...insert any other color/race there and read it...and tell me it was not racist...

    Well I am still going to try and be less white and start singing Freddy Boom Boom Washington's  song more often -  I don't care what the white man says Santa Clause is a black man. Cheers!

    Maybe it does I feel less arrogant and less certain that Santa, God and Jesus must be white. Cheers!

    Are you sure Jesus wasn’t white?  That’s news to me.  I always thought that people who lived in the Middle East around the First Century normally looked like this:  /s

    Actually, the color of Jesus' skin was more likely a mid to dark olive color, just like most other middle easterners.  The image of Jesus that many have is that of a white European.  Jesus was born in Israel, not Scandinavia.  Furthermore, scriptures say He looked like an “average Joe" {"There was nothing beautiful or majestic about his appearance, nothing to attract us to him."}.  In other words, His physical appearance wouldn’t have stood out.  A white skinned Jesus would definitely have stood out (at the time) amid the other “natives”.

    I know.  It’s why I put /s after it.

    Anyway, this is what forensic scientists think Jesus looked like

    I'm not sure of anything these days - for all I know Hell could be freezing and the devil wears a cardigan sweater. Which might be a sign that the devil could be white and not the red or black beast that you see in most images of the devil. Cheers!

    He doesn’t really seem like a cardigan guy to me.

    Yeah with a bod like that he would probably wear tank tops and cargo shorts. Cheers!

    There is no Santa. 
    Jesus is not white.  God the Father is not human...so who knows what color He is.

    Oh ye of little faith. Have you researched the derivation of Santa Claus?

    Jesus, God and Santa were not born in Brooklyn or Atlanta. Sheesh. Sorry for the intrusion.
