Coca-Cola Will Only Hire Law Firms If They Have Enough Black Lawyers — Details

Get woke, go broke.

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).

Check this out, via The Daily Wire:

Coca-Cola debuted a new policy this year implementing a diversity quota for the outside counsel it retains, saying it will only hire law firms that commit to providing 15 percent of billed time from black attorneys, higher than the percentage of African Americans in the U.S. population.

On January 28, the soft drink titan’s legal department wrote a letter to the company’s U.S. outside counsel outlining Coca-Cola’s new requirement that law firms must “commit that at least 30% of each of billed associate and partner time will be from diverse attorneys, and of such amounts at least half will be from Black attorneys.”

Those requirements will tighten over time, with the “ultimate aspiration” that “at least” 50 percent of billed time will be from “diverse” attorneys, and 25 percent from black attorneys. Firms are expected to work to apply that standard to their existing work with Coca-Cola as well.

African Americans make up about 13 percent of the U.S. population. The percentage of black lawyers is much lower, African American attorneys making up just five percent of all U.S. lawyers, the American Bar Association reported last year.

New Ultra-Woke ‘Monopoly’ Pits White Privilege against Race to Wipe Out White People and Capitalism

A new ultra-woke Monopoly-styled game called “Blacks & Whites” sends gamers into attacks on “white privilege.”

A new ultra-woke Monopoly-styled game called “Blacks & Whites” sends gamers into attacks on “white privilege” and gets them using race to destroy capitalism.

The game is an updated version o a 1970’s Monopoly ripoff that is being sold as the “Blacks & Whites: 50th Anniversary Edition.” The game’s description claims that race is “crucial to the player’s success in the game.”

The game purports to show that blacks can’t make it in the U.S.A. and the rules are stacked against black players.

A Thursday report from Wired’s Sebastian Skov Andersen succinctly sums up the game: “a ‘socially conscious’ tabletop game about privilege and inequity in real estate and American society.”

Never Sad, the duo made up of made up of black comedian Nehemiah Markos and white comedian Jed Feiman, received permission from the original game’s creator, the late Dr. Robert Sommer.

Sommer, an internationally renowned professor and psychologist at the University of California-Davis, originally crafted the game because he was “struck by how unrealistic” Monopoly was, the Wired report explained.

“In Monopoly, everyone starts out with the same amount of money,” he previously said. “That certainly doesn’t fit the real world. … I decided to change the rules and introduce disadvantaged players.”

The game pushes its “white privilege” lies by giving white players a million dollars to start out with, but black players only get ten thousand. From there, black players find costs to be prohibitive while white players can spend at will and still come out ahead. Black players constantly face the threat of jail while white players succeed.

A recent ad for the game warns, “Watch out for greedy white people or you may go bankrupt!”

“Capitalism and racism are inextricable!” one of the players, portrayed by Markos, responds during the ad.

Sen. Marco Rubio Introduces Bill to Hold Corporations to Account for Leftist Woke Policies

Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that would hold leftist corporations accountable for interfering in the legislative actions of the states.

Published

Florida Senator Marco Rubio has introduced a bill that would hold leftist corporations accountable for interfering in the legislative actions of the states.

As Real Clear Politics’ Alfredo Ortiz explained, “In an effort to appease liberal lawmakers who threaten them with punitive regulations, corporations have increasingly been wading into divisive political issues to advocate for Democratic Party priorities.”

For instance, you had the NBA, NCAA, and other sports refusing to hold games in states that have enacted conservative laws. Or, in another example, many corporations banded together to enact economic warfare against the state of Georgia for enacting voting reform laws. The news is filled with examples like this.

Many Americans are getting sick and tired of these left-wingers abusing their economic power to push extremist, un-American, left-wing political causes on us, forcing us all to live by them no matter what we want, no matter who we elect, and no matter what laws we support.

But Rubio is looking for ways to eliminate these attacks on our country.

As Ortiz explains:

Entitled CEOs shouldn’t be allowed to run roughshod over the interests of their shareholders, who are often vulnerable retirees and ordinary Americans who depend on strong stock performances and dividends to maintain their quality of life. Keep in mind that around 43% of the stock market is owned by those aged 65 and older, and most middle-class families have savings in the stock market. In other words, companies’ woke politics don’t only risk the savings of hedge fund millionaires.

Sen. Rubio’s bill empowers shareholders to protect themselves from woke CEOs by eliminating barriers preventing them from suing companies for prioritizing politics over profits. The bill requires executives to justify their political actions with concrete rationale for how their moves help the business. No longer will companies be able to get away with political virtue signaling based on gauzy or generic claims that their political preferences are best for the company. Corporate executives will think twice before they enter the political fray to further their political ambitions.

The Mind Your Own Business Act marks a significant step in the growing wokelash. Given the widespread opposition to corporate political interference and the detrimental impact it has on ordinary Americans, it won’t be the last.

Exactly right.

It’s time to end this economic warfare.
