Epic Coca-Cola ‘Be Less White’ Faux Pas

Even though summer is months away, epic heat has seemingly settled in over Coca-Cola. With the “leak” to the media regarding Coke’s “Try to be less white” employee training program, and the predictable uproar that one might expect when a large corporation exhibits bad table manners. However, let’s dive in and analyze this a bit, shall we?

 Clarity First

I have not written an article here in some time. My apologies for that, work has been super busy. However, I am on vacation this week so I have the time for some scribbling. More importantly, had I been at the ol’ grindstone the last few days, I would not have had the time to even pass the “be less white” thing though my brain, save for a typical, superficial, knee-jerk reaction.

First Impression on Be Less White

I’m an old white guy who leans conservative on many things. I also have some distant Cherokee ancestors, some of whom had been slaves in the 18th and 19th century. So, naturally, my first thoughts were along the lines of, “What the heck are you doing, Coca-Cola? Racism is racism, no matter whom you’re singling out, individually, or as a group.”
I didn’t react immediately. In fact, this article is pretty much the only thing I have had to say about the Coke Debacle of 2021. Yet, having given some thought to the topic at hand, I decided it’s time to add my voice.

Any and all racism is still racism

It seems to me that a good many people think that racism is only racism if it is white people committing it. Be it slurs, discrimination, you name it, if it is a “person of color” it’s all good, no worries. That, my friends, is a falsehood.

Bucky Runs for Top Job in 2020 Presidential Election

2020 Presidential election - Sept 7th 2020 - Ghipaland, USA, SimCity BuildIt - Bucky 2020 launches campaign with high hopes, moderate policies, outsider - but kooky - with promise as an alternative write-in candidate in the coming election.

Bucky Decides to Run

2020 presidential election - Bucky Runs

I'm Bucky T. Builder. I am the successful Mayor of Ghipaland. Ghipaland is a SimCity Buildit city, and I'm running in for president the 2020 presidential election. Being that it's an exclusive place to run a city, you may have never heard of it. Or me. So, I'm asking for your help. I have a lot to say about my 2020 run, and since I don't have a press liaison or anything, I'm forced to bring my message directly to the fine people of the United States of America themselves. That's you. Also, since I don't have anyone feeding me questions, now and again I'll phrase things sort of in a 3rd party way. You know, sorta of like the headline above, "Bucky Decides..."

Why would Bucky run for president?

The 2020 presidential election is nearly as big a mess as the 2016 election was. Lately, no matter which party's candidate you're voting for you basically get the movie Idiocracy. But that isn't the anything new. It's been decades since we had a real President. FDR, good, Truman, joke. Ike, good, JFK, too short in office to tell, but likely would have gone down as great. LBJ, joke, Nixon, could have been great, but joke, Ford, joke. Carter, it just goes on and on likewise. So why not run? If the whole thing is going to be a mockery, let's go whole hog, I say!

What is Bucky's party affiliation?

I am what you might call an independent. However, I am launching my own party as I begin my run for the 2020 Presidential election. It is called the Eggnog Party.

7 Tips for buying computers at Walmart or Amazon

Shopping for Walmart computers and Amazon.com

Walmart computersThis is what I bought. More images down below.

Welcome! In this article we'll look at shopping Walmart computers, what you might expect to find there, and Amazon.com as well. I know something about this as I just went through the process of buying my granddaughter a new computer for school, and while I was at it, looking for a new one for writing my articles. The ol' laptop is in retirement. Oh, sure, I may write an article at Starbucks with it at some point, but man, it was tired! 

The Criteria 

The criteria for both computers were largely the same. I wanted both of them to be fairly inexpensive. I know the rush of going "whole hog" with all the bells and whistles. As often as not you find that you way overpaid for stuff you don't use. Gaming computer? No. Computer with the latest processor? 256 gigs of SDD? That's geek for 256 gigabytes of Solid-State Drive. As opposed to a slower and less reliable spinning disk drive). It would be nice, but for a LOT more! I have found that solid is solid, and solid lasts.
