Coca-Cola Pulls Offensive Christmas Ad Because It Shows White People Handing Out Cola

Coca-Cola pulled this ad in Mexico because radical leftists said it was offensive.

Because acts of kindness by white people are now deemed offensive.

Even in Mexico the left plays the race card.

The Christmas ad took place in Totontepec village in Oaxaca Mexico. The locals speak Mexican Spanish and a local dialect. The kids in the ad pull up in a truck and hand out soda.

Kindness is offensive.
Yahoo reported:

In an ad distributed by Coca-Cola Mexico, pretty, young white people do their holiday good deed by bringing bottles of soda to a remote village and build a wooden Christmas tree in the town square. The “Open Your Heart” advertisement has been called anything but, as indigenous rights’ groups said the campaign promoted colonialism rather than unity.

“This type of publicity is an act of discrimination and racism,” Elvira Pablo, an indigenous lawyer, said at a press conference in Mexico City on Wednesday. “It is a comment on our type of life and an attempt to put a culture of consumerism in its place.”

After the ad was promoted on YouTube for about a week and then slammed on social media, Coca-cola pulled it on Tuesday—though other versions can be found online, one titled “The ‘White Savior’ Ad Coca-Cola Made Private.”

“Our intention was never to be insensitive to or underestimate any indigenous group,” a Coca-Cola spokesperson said in a statement to food news site Eater. “We have now removed the video and apologize to anyone who may have been offended.”

Silent but for a perky soundtrack, the video shows peppy fair-skinned actors bringing bottles of Coke to the Mixe people in Totontepec, a town in the southern state of Oaxaca.

    this is so wonderful I just had to post it, we all need to smile:

    Sunday Smile: A Baby Brother For Christmas
    A mom and dad surprised their three daughters with the news that they had adopted a baby boy by hiding him under the Christmas tree — and the girls’ reaction was completely adorable.

    Courtney Solstad wrote on Facebook that the family of five welcomed little Nathan into their family last week through adoption.

    She wrote that their three girls had been excited at the prospect of adopting a baby, and her daughter Chloe even wrote it down as a Christmas wish this year.

    “Chloe’s Christmas wish came true,” she wrote.
    Instead of telling the girls right away, the Solstads decided to surprise their girls by placing their new brother under the Christmas tree. They then filmed their reactions.
    Facebook: video.php

    “The girls knew nothing about Nathan until this,” she wrote. “We met them at the door and told them that we had been out Christmas shopping and got them a gift to share…and it was under the tree.”
    Their reaction was totally amazing.

    One of the girls lost it, and started crying with happiness.

    Once a company elects a liberal CEO, he will only select liberals for his subordinates. There are many conservatives that work in the ranks, but executive management never returns to conservative principles. If a CEO owns less than 5% of the company he is a parasite sucking the blood out of other peoples hard work over decades. The salaries of these parasites will eventually grown until they end up killing the company. When a CEO owns more than the minimum percentage of a company, let him maximize his salary at will – but an Ivy League elitist liberal parasite should not be allowed to drive a company into the ground. This is Coke’s dilemma. The board of directors needs to fire the whole bunch, but unfortunately, the CEO has likely stacked the board with his buddies.

  • Patty

    Now, watch Coca Cola sales plummet.
    It truly is amazing that an industry like coke, in which, I am sure some intelligent people could be so swayed to Political Correctness which in my opinion has reached its peak.

    Well, now we know why Trump’s polls continue to rise.

    One flaming liberal doesn’t like something and it changes the thoughts and motivations of people who other wise are brilliant and talented people to dust.

    If they hand out coke with out Bourbon they are racist LMAO

    So, it’s offensive if whites go to Mexico and GIVE stuff to Mexicans, but it’s not offensive for Mexicans to come to America and TAKE stuff from whites?

    More wisdom from the perpetually offended PC police.

    White people built Western civilization and democratic values (tribal values and blood sacrifice wasn’t going too far, Middle Eastern values are homicidal and suicidal, and Eastern values tend to be nihilistic all the way into self-shame and nothingness)…

    Even though whites have been taught self-hate through the academic institutions and political correctness mafias, white people kind of deserve to hand out Coca-Colas no matter what.

    I really do not care what anyone says to the contrary… because I have researched ancient to modern civilization (beyond belief!) and find that whites have sacrificed themselves over hundreds of years to offer the world a Coke.

    I am of the mind that we should stop supporting companies that feel the need to apologize for everything and bow to the PC police.

    Well, Coca-Cola is about to be slapped with extra “health” taxes by the federal government that says that sodas make people fat. It’s just the beginning of “health” vigilantism by the federal government with their recently new centralized healthcare power.

    Also, the healthcare power ($$$) is far greater than the soda industry power ($$). I guess we’ll see who wins. I’m hoping Coca-Cola goes down with the greatest of fights–because that is respectable.

    Oh good, more raging anti-white racism because it just doesn’t ever get tiresome. /sarc

  • Mike in Illinois

    I had a thought along those lines.
    White people bring a soft drink called coca cola south and it’s offensive because it’s racist so it’s bad. But then brown people bring cocaine north and even though it’s literally deadly the liberal media and political class not only excuses it but literally champions it.

    Uh huh. Up is truly down to these fools. I swear, they have to sit in a room and say ” well guys, what kind of blatant outright backward lie can we tell to get paid today? Remember, as long as it is focused on blaming and demonizing white people it is worth big bucks!!!”

    It is abject idiocy!

  • Mike in Illinois

    One of the most intelligent things white people ever did was admit that democracy is a tool of slavery if left unbridled and unchecked. With this knowledge, the “old white guys” put in place the poison pill that ultimately corral the tyranny of the majority and the abuse of it by the elite few operating behind the scenes- the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution.

    Now, tyrants never stop attempting to usurp the liberty of another. Democrats have never admitted that those “Old White Guys” were correct and they likely never will. Many infiltrate the defenders of the Republic in attempt to undermine and eventually destroy government of Republican firm. They simply
    go the praises of democracy – always “Forgetting” to remember the lessons of history.

    We must be very cautious regarding this point. Wouldn’t ya say?

    So then, we whites should withdraw our charity from all people who don’t resemble us in color? That would be racist. Face it folks, the world is going stupid and Whites are the bad people even though we are largely responsible for most of the humanitarianism going on around the world. People of color, the majority of the Earth’s inhabitants, have been creating most of the strife going on in the world since the stone age so don’t come here with that “whites caused all the wars” bs.
    Furthermore, look at Africans. If wasn’t for us feeding them they’d be a dead group of people by now. Many of them still live like their ancestors of a thousand years ago had.
    If the world doesn’t want our generosity, fine. We have lot’s of white folks that will appreciate the help we give.
    Political correctness is at the root of this crap and it has no basis in reality.

    Of course not. White liberals will do the thinking for them too. After all, liberals know what’s best for everyone. I do wish we would get to the point that if liberals knew what was best for them, they’d shut up.

  • SwizzKnife

    Western nations give more in foreign aid and charity than ANYONE ELSE.. ANYONE..

    And those nations gladly take it..

    These people also come to western nations which are majority white nations.. AND NOBODY INVITED THEM THEY INVITED THEMSELVES TO THE PARTY BECAUSE THEIR OWN NATIONS ARE NOT DOING AS GOOD.. GEE I WONDER WHY THAT IS.. many come illegally aswell.. and call white people racists because there are more whites in positions than minorities.. Guess what.. that’s because it’s a white majority nation it’s not racism.. And you’re basically invading their nation, that’s what it is.. that’s exactly what you’re doing!

    But can you imagine moving to china, and then claiming chinese are racist because there are more chinese than you. And that this is unacceptable and needs to be changed.

    Or moving to india and claiming indians are racist because there are more indians there than you. And that this is unacceptable and needs to be changed.

    Or moving to japan and claiming japanese are racist because there are more japanese there than you. And that this is unacceptable and needs to be changed.

    Or moving to africa and claiming africans are racist because there are more africans there than you. And that this is unacceptable and needs to be changed.

    Nobody asked you to come to western nations, and certainly by no means are anybody forcing you to stay, quite on the contrary we would very much like it if you left, so white people wouldn’t have to be called racist constantly for being a majority in their own nations. And for wanting to keep it that way to preserve their culture and their heritage. NOT YOURS..

    Just like china does, just like india does, just like japan does, just like most nations do.

    I don’t ever want to hear anything anti white in white majority nations, you evil despicable racist minority douchebags that want a free ride on other peoples backs.. Get the hell out is my only message to you if you have a problem with white people in their own nations..

    And if you don’t like white people donating foreign aid and helping you in any way.. which white people don’t have to whatsoever, they could let you crumble under your own weight, but they do it to uplift other nations..

    THEN WE SHOULD GLADLY REMOVE IT! Keep it up leftist douchebags, that might very well happen. Sooner or later people are going to get enough of your racism against white people. Afterall if that is how you feel, then white majority nations should keep their hard earned money instead of tossing them away to a bunch of clowns who can’t make their own nations work and apparently hate white people for trying to help them. It’s not like we don’t have anything else to spend the money on..

    Infact western infrastructure and things like that are even having issues because of the monumental BURDEN that other nations are on them because they’re sucking all that foreign aid.. If you can’t even show a little appreciation then certainly let’s just cut it completely and see if you clowns will help eachother out.. Then we could stay out of it entirely and keep the money for ourselves.. OH WHAT A WONDERFUL THOUGHT!

    And quite frankly those who are racist against whites whilst having moved to, and living in western nations, should get a one way ticket to wherever they originally came from, and never be able to come back again, period.. BYE BYE..

    I guarantee nobody will miss you or your lack of contribution to society either. One less headache to deal with! That nobody asked for in the first place..

    Minorities should piss off back to nations where they are a majority, instead of moving to white majority nations and calling them racists for not being equally presented in every walk of life. Which infact would be unequal representation because they’re a minority.

    They’re invaders that’s what they are. Move into a nation then act unhappy with them not having their way in the nation they move to. You have a problem.. there’s the door..

  • Wayne Ville

    Mike I respectfully disagree. The left (elitist aristocracy) want to dumb down the peeps by any way possible so that they, the elitist aristocracy, can live comfortably inside the castle walls and control the peeps who will live outside the castle walls. The media, the RiNOs, the entertainment crowd, and the rich all think that they will live inside those castle walls. This is why we see only one political party. They will continue to deride any efforts or philosophy that builds up the peeps in either wealth or status. Also I stopped drinking soft drinks years ago and started drinking carbonated filtered water. I recommend the Soda Stream. It has the added value of driving the left crazy because it is made by an Israeli company that employs muslims.

  • Suelinn

    “indigenous rights’ groups said the campaign promoted colonialism rather than unity.”

    Liberals are all about “progress” and are quite vile when speaking of conservatives who don’t agree with their beliefs and lifestyles, especially when it comes to social issues like abortion, homosexuality, same sex marriage, and the like. They say conservatives are in the “dark ages” and “they want to take us back to the 1800’s” and on and on.

    But all of a sudden if it is an indigenous group of people they claim that they MUST be left alone – and that includes modern medicine and anything else that would mean bringing something of our culture into theirs. The issue of COKE is immaterial to the discussion, really. Coke doesn’t really matter in the grand scheme of things, but this is the way liberals think. And you better agree or else.

    The problem with dumbing down a population in order to control them is that it results in a downward spiral that ends up with a population too dumb to control at all.

    Coke should make an ad showing the same white people snatching the Cokes out of the indiginous peoples’ hands and kicking the tree over, then driving away, laughing. That’s an ad I could get behind. I’d buy gallons of Coke if I saw that ad. Coke should be smarter about choosing its demographic, which clearly isn’t in Mexico.
