Coca-Cola has suddenly put a halt to the hardcore, left-wing social agenda it was planning to implement company wide. Looks like Woke-a0Cola has realized that going woke is not the best business plan.
Perhaps proving the saying, “go woke, go broke,” Coke has canned its initial plans to push a heavy, left-wing social agenda with its products and company culture. The pause on the social agenda came right after Coke’s former general counsel Bradley Gayton, abruptly resigned last month after less than a year at his job.
There are some internal sources that say some worried that Gayton’s social media agenda would violate Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which maintains that employers can’t treat people differently based on their race.
Coke executives are now reassessing the social justice plans.

“When there is a leadership change, it takes time for the new leader to review the current status of the team, organization and initiatives,” said Coke spokesman Scott Leith. “Monica is fully committed to the notions of equity and diversity in the legal profession, and we fully expect she will take the time necessary to thoughtfully review any plans going forward.”
One of Gayton’s eyebrow-raising ideas was to have Coke penalize or even cut ties with law firms that don’t meet his diversity ideals. Gayton’s plan would have forced law firms that wanted to do Business with Coke to have at least 30 percent of its lawyers be black.
“The hard truth is that our profession is not treating the issue of diversity and inclusion as a business imperative,” Gayton exclaimed in January. “We have a crisis on our hands and we need to commit ourselves to specific actions that will accelerate the diversity of the legal profession.”
Gayton’s plan, though raised concerns that Coke’s actions were actually illegal.
In light of Gayton’s resignation, Coke announced that it is “taking a pause for now” on his announced social plans.
The /New York Post added:
It’s hardly Coke’s first stab at being woke.
In February, employees were urged to be “less white” as part of the company’s alleged diversity training. The “Confronting Racism” course in question was offered by LinkedIn Education and allegedly utilized by the soft-drink titan.
Coca-Cola slammed for diversity training that urged workers to be ‘less white’
“In the U.S. and other Western nations, white people are socialized to feel that they are inherently superior because they are white,” reads one of the slides, allegedly sent from an “internal whistleblower” and posted on Twitter by YouTube commentator Karlyn Borysenko.
Another slide suggests “try to be less white” with tips including “be less oppressive,” “listen,” “believe” and “break with white solidarity.” The tweet that shared images of the course went viral.
Perhaps Coke is finally starting to “get” that going woke isn’t the best plan after all.

McAfee Dead in Prison After Repeatedly Declaring He Would Not Kill Himself
Social media users were quick to remind the world of McAfee’s own words.
John McAfee is a computing legend, having pioneered the way in which systems and networks protect themselves from viruses, malware, spyware, and all the other assorted evils of this internet age. But now he lies dead, having allegedly committed suicide in a Spanish prison cell. Antivirus software tycoon John McAfee died by an apparent suicide in a Spanish jail cell Wednesday evening — hours after reports surfaced that he would be extradited to face federal charges in the US, according to local media. The eccentric tech entrepreneur was arrested in October and was awaiting extradition when he was found dead, police sources told the newspaper El Pais. The newspaper reported McAfee was pulled from his cell in Barcelona and police are investigating the circumstances around his death. Authorities aren’t shying away from calling it a suicide already. “Everything points to suicide,” the newspaper reported, citing justice department officials in the country. A second Spanish newspaper, El Mundo, also reported McAfee had died by an apparent suicide in the jail. But here is where it gets strange: McAfee has been utterly insistent and consistent about the fact that he would never, ever take his own life, explicitly telling his followers on social media that, should he ever be found dead of suicide, he was killed. https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1316801215083225096?s=20 https://twitter.com/officialmcafee/status/1200864283766251521?s=20 https://twitter.com/truthcrumbs/status/1407788935628079113?s=20 The investigation is ongoing at this time.
Lab Finds Zero Fish DNA After Testing Subway’s Tuna Sandwich
You can “eat fresh” at Subway, but can you eat fish?
For years we’ve told ourselves that there has to be a better way to do fast food. Or, at the very least, a healthier way. And so new chains are constantly popping up, while the old staples adapt. There are salads for sale as places like McDonald’s these days, which is something that kids who grew up in the 80’s might have had a hard time believing would ever occur. In the realm of healthy fast food, there is but one king: The unbreakable Subway. Not only did the brand survive having a pedophile as their spokesperson, but they currently operate more physical restaurants in the world than even the aforementioned burger purveyor. But an alarming new study has some wondering if, while they were “eating fresh” with a tuna sub, they were even eating fish. The New York Times published a report Sunday, which revealed that lab tests didn’t find “amplifiable tuna DNA” in Subway’s infamous tuna sandwich. NYT submitted “60 inches worth of Subway tuna sandwiches” from three separate Los Angeles locations for lab analysis in wake of the lawsuit filed earlier this year alleging the sandwich chain was serving customers “a mixture of various concoctions that do not constitute tuna.” The suit claims that independent lab tests showed the company meant to “imitate” tuna’s appearance by blending together these unknown ingredients. The study, commissioned by NYT, failed to not only identify tuna DNA, but the lab couldn’t even determine the origins of the fish in the provided sandwiches. “No amplifiable tuna DNA was present in the sample and so we obtained no amplification products from the DNA. Therefore, we cannot identify the species,” the results read. But it’s not all bad news: “There’s two conclusions. One, it’s so heavily processed that whatever we could pull out, we couldn’t make an…
