Coke was prosecuted for racial discrimination against African Americas in 1999 initially by fifteen hundred workers however that number quickly grew to two thousand. Allegations included questionable appraisals, lack of promotions and concerns with wages (Ferrell, 2011.)

Complaints were also reported that Coca-Cola’s senior leadership was aware of the racial discrimination that transpired and decided to overlook the nuisance.
