The following article, Coca-Cola Will Only Hire Law Firms If They Have Enough Black Lawyers — Details, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Coca-Cola is taking this “woke” nonsense to a whole new level. And you know what generally happens when a company does something like this: they usually lose a good amount of money before eventually reversing course (however slightly).

I’ll switch to Pepsi. No company has the right to dictate how another company chooses to run it’s business and determine how many people of various cultures they need to hire. You hire people based on how well they will get the job done and what experience they bring to the table


I will never buy another Coke product. This whole thing is out of control. I hope Coke loses every lawsuit they have.
