    Coca-Cola tells employees to “try to be less white”......wft? I love Coke, but fuck em. I’m over this shit.


    "Our Better Together global learning curriculum is part of a learning plan to help build an inclusive workplace," the spokesperson said in a statement. "It is comprised of a number of short vignettes, each a few minutes long. The training includes access to LinkedIn Learning on a variety of topics, including on diversity, equity and inclusion."



    Joshua Foxworth, who ran for the House to represent Texas' 14th Congressional District in 2020, tweeted, "If your congressman does nothing when Coca-Cola tells it's employees to 'Try to be less White' but would rush to any available mic if this was said about any other race, can it truly be said that they represent every American in their district, or just the ones the media allows."


    Nigel Farage, reform UK leader and senior editor-at-large for Newsweek's "The Debate," also criticized the racism training materials. "So, to be less white means you'll be less arrogant, less ignorant—I mean, the list goes on: 'try to be less white'," he said. "The inference here is clear, isn't it? That white is bad; white means supremacist; white means you look down your noses at everybody else; white means you are guilty!"

    Seattle homeless shelter buys heroin pipes with city funds, teaches rectal injection method



    A Seattle-backed homeless shelter is instructing addicts to smoke heroin and inject drugs rectally. And the shelter is using tax dollars to help get addicts high.


    The Downtown Emergency Service Center (DESC) passes out heroin pipes and so-called “booty bumping” kits. To alert homeless clients of their offerings, DESC posted several flyers at their Navigation Center location on 12th Avenue South. They give encouragement to addicts to use new tools and methods to continue their destructive and deadly addictions.


    Officials with Seattle’s Human Services Department (HSD) won’t directly respond to concerns over the advice or use of funds. But they do back the methods because it “reflects the varying needs of those experiencing homelessness in Seattle.”


    Two flyers, one message: Do drugs



    The DESC is a self-described social justice organization.


    They operate low-barrier shelters for the most vulnerable homeless population, many of whom live with severe addictions. The group approaches their homeless advocacy with “harm-reduction techniques and evidence-based practices.”


    With that guiding principle, staff posted two flyers with tips on how to be safer and more efficient addicts.


    One flyer is focused on smoking heroin, rather than injecting it. It says DESC is passing out new heroin pipes because “smoking is a lower-risk alternative to injection. Give it a try!”


    Resident addicts “can now get 3 kinds of glass — bubbles, stems, and hammers — from case managers [or] any member of the management team.” But you’re only allowed “one kind of each pipe once a week.”


    You can, however, get “extra screens and mouthpieces” at the front desk.


    “The efforts we make are focused on reducing risks to people engaged in risky behaviors, and helping people make use of treatment that can be helpful to them,” DESC Executive Director Daniel Malone tells the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH.
    ‘Booty bumping’ kits



    The second flyer promotes “booty bumping” kits, which provides an alternative to intravenous injection.


    This process has an addict inject drugs rectally, usually meth or cocaine mixed with water, through a needless syringe. A rectum is very efficient at absorption, so the high is described as more intense and longer-lasting. The flyer says this method to get high is a “good choice if your veins are hard to hit,” and that it “doesn’t leave tracks.”


    This seems like it will keep you addicted longer, not make it easier for an addict to be free of their deadly addiction. But Malone says this technique embraces a harm reduction model. He says it falls “on the continuum of helping people to decrease risk by avoiding the use of needles to inject drugs, because intravenous injection of drugs can produce complications such as phlebitis, vasculitis, cellulitis, vein scarring, abscesses, and systemic infections related to IV injection.”


    Booty bumping kits are available at the front desk. All you need to do is ask.


    City funds for ‘pragmatic interventions’



    Malone confirms to the Jason Rantz Show on KTTH that the DESC uses “funds from our contract with the City of Seattle to purchase clean syringes and other harm reduction supplies.” Those other supplies include the heroin pipes, but “demand for clean syringes remains far higher than for other kinds of supplies.”


    The City of Seattle refused to directly say if it endorsed the flyers or the use of city funds. Kevin Mundt, a spokesperson for the HSD, deflected direct questions and simply sent me an explanation of what DESC offers. But he did reference the flyers.


    “I haven’t seen the flyers that you’re referring to and, therefore, can’t comment specifically on the information or how it is presented,” the spokesperson said.


    So I sent him the flyers and asked my questions again. Again, he did not answer directly, simply telling me how DESC and HSD handle chronically homeless addicts. Google is considerably more efficient at getting that information than going through a city spokesperson.

    Mayor Jenny Durkan’s Office did not respond to two requests for comment.


    Malone argues the approach offers “pragmatic interventions that reduce harm to the individual and overall community.”


    “We try to reduce the stigma around substance use to encourage clients to share openly and honestly about their experiences and needs. We speak to clients frankly and directly about the risks and dangers of substance use and the options available to them about changing their use, ” Malone said. “We have substance use disorder counselor and opioid treatment nurse positions at the shelter who provide motivational interviewing, and individual and group counseling.”

    But does it work?

    James O’Keefe Shows How CNN Launders Lies in Real Time… Predicts Retraction.



    James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, outlined how CNN lied about his organization’s Twitter in a new video, ultimately predicting that the network will be forced to issue several retractions.



    O’Keefe notes how CNN host Ana Cabrera described Project Veritas’ Twitter suspension as “part of a much broader crackdown, as we mentioned, by social media giants on accounts that are promoting misinformation.”


    Brian Stelter added on the segment that the group’s Twitter ban was in response to “violating multiple rules on the site.”


    Cabrera’s comments, however, are at odds with a February CNN article by Brian Fung that traced the ban to the group’s alleged “violations of the platform’s policies prohibiting sharing — or threats of sharing — other people’s private information without consent.”


    Legal counsel for Project Veritas pressed Fung on the reporting disparities, forcing the journalist to admit “I don’t know” and later refer the group to Stetler and Cabrera directly.


    The video also shows O’Keefe speaking with a representative for CNN’S General Counsel David Vigilante to follow up on a letter demanding that “Ms. Cabrera and Mr. Stelter need to publicly apologize for this reporting on air and in writing.”
