The Walt Disney Corporation is pushing the quasi-Marxist critical race theory in on its employees, teaching them that America has “a long history of systemic racism” while urging them to reflect on their “white privilege,” according to leaked internal documents.
The documents were leaked to City-Journal journalist Christopher Rufo by multiple anonymous Disney employees who revealed that the training was part of the company’s “diversity and inclusion” program called “Reimagine Tomorrow.” One of the modules in the training program relies on the controversial critical race theory, an ideology that claims that the United States is a fundamentally racist country and that one race is inherently superior to another.
The module in question, called “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” includes training on topics such as “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” and “microaggressions.” It also tells white employees to “examine and work through feelings of guilt, shame, and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed” and recommends that employees challenge “colorblind ideologies and rhetoric” such as “All Lives Matter” or “I don’t see color” because they are “harmful and hurtful.”
Employees are encouraged to not “question or debate Black colleagues’ lived experience” or “rely on your black colleagues to educate you,” which is “emotionally taxing,” the document states.
The document also tells employees to reject “equality” and equal treatment but instead embrace “equality of outcome.”
“Equality is a noble goal. Equal treatment and access to opportunities help each of us perform our best within a shared set of parameters. But we really need to be striving for equity, where we focus on the equality of the outcome, not the equality of the experience by taking individual needs and skills into account,” according to the leaked document.
