Dana Loesch, by way of exposing the grift of the “Anti-Racism” industry, published a whistle-blower account of the Coca Cola session with Robin DeAngelo a few weeks back – the one that told Cokers to, well…

Which is nothing new, if you’ve been reading this blog and/or have any functioning critical thinking capability.
Beyond that, though?
If I’m “less white”, aren’t I then appropriating someone else’s culture?
