Does anyone have a link where someone who works for Coke says Be Less White?

Do the people attacking Coke even know where the new catchphrase Be Less White came from?

    Coke did not directly say that phrase, but a spokesman confirmed Robin DiAngelo's special brand of woke stupidity was incorporated into the training they put their employees through.

    But for the sake of clarity, from her official web site:

    "A Note on the Recent Coca-Cola / Big Think / LinkedIn Controversy

    Dr. DiAngelo was not the creator or facilitator of the LinkedIn Learning course “Confronting Racism, with Robin DiAngelo.” She was unaware that her name, image, and work were being presented in this way and did not participate in or agree to the creation and distribution of an educational resource based on her research.

    The course consisted of a selection of clips from an interview Dr. DiAngelo did for the outlet Big Think in 2018, in promotion of her book. The videos were re-edited and presented as an anti-racism training resource by Big Think, who then licensed it to LinkedIn Learning. She did not create or approve the slides that were included with the video, and they do not represent the work she does for her virtual or in-person presentations, trainings, and workshops.

    The course was removed voluntarily by the owners and creators of the content when it was brought to their attention that it was being used without her knowledge."
