Walmart CRT Training Encourages Employees To Accept “White Isn’t Fair”
Walmart has put more than 1,000 employees in a critical race theory a background that teaches that the United States is a “white supremacist system” and that white interns are guilty of “white supremacist thinking” and “internalized racial superiority,” according to a new report.
Disclosure documents obtained by City newspaper‘s Christopher Rufo reveals that Walmart first launched the program, based on the fundamentals of Critical Race Theory, in 2018 in partnership with the Racial Equity Institute.
The company has made the program mandatory for executives, while it is recommended for hourly workers. Rufo denounces Walmart for its hypocrisy, noting that all of its nine senior executives, except for chief technology officer Suresh Kumar, are white.
Walmart confirmed to Rufo that it has “hired REI for a number of training sessions since 2018” and that it “found these sessions stimulating and constructive.”
The party claims the United States is a “white supremacist system,” created by white Europeans “for the purpose of attributing and maintaining white skin’s access to power and privilege,” according to the report.
The program suggests that whites are guilty of “white privilege” and “internalized racial superiority,” the belief that “his comforts, wealth, privileges and success have been won by merit and hard work” rather than by the benefits of systemic racism. The formation claims that the The “culture of white supremacy” is defined by several qualities, including “individualism”, “objectivity”, “paternalism”, “defense”, “hoarding of power”, the “right to comfort” and the “cult of writing”.
He adds that “discussions on racist conditioning” should take place in racially segregated groups because “people of color and white people have their own jobs to do to understand and combat racism,” the report notes.
According to the training, employees belonging to racial minorities suffer from “constructed racist oppression” and “internalized racial inferiority” and struggle with internal messages such as “we think there is something wrong with it. being a person of color “,” we have lowered self-esteem “,” we have lowered expectations “,” we have very limited choices “and” we have a feeling of limited possibility “.
This harmful internal thought forces them to adhere to “myths promoted by the racist system”, according to the training, and to develop feelings of “self-hatred “,” anger “,” rage “and” ethnocentrism “, and they are forced to” forget “,” lie “and” stop feeling “in order to survive.
The program suggests that the solution is for whites to work on “white anti-racist development” and accept their “guilt and shame” and that “whites are not right”. Ultimately, they should be working towards “collective action” where “white people can do good”.
