The Manhattan Institute’s Christopher Rufo has become the top watchdog and repository for information from whistleblowers about Corporate America’s efforts to impose Critical Race Theory on their employees.
His latest tranche of information comes from behind the HR scenes at Walmart, which has enlisted the help of an “expert” consulting group, the North Carolina-based Racial Equity Institute, to administer a program that focuses “on the core principles of critical race theory, including ‘intersectionality,’ ‘internalized racial oppression,’ ‘internalized racial inferiority,’ and ‘white anti-racist development.'”
The program begins with the claim that the United States is a “white supremacy system,” designed by white Europeans “for the purpose of assigning and maintaining white skin access to power and privilege.” American history is presented as a long sequence of oppressions, from the “construction of a ‘white race’” by colonists in 1680 to President Obama’s stimulus legislation in 2009, “another race neutral act that has disproportionately benefited white people.” Consequently, the Walmart program argues, white Americans have been subjected to “racist conditioning” that indoctrinates them into “white supremacy,” or the view “that white people and the ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and actions of white people are superior to People of Color and their ideas, thoughts, beliefs, and actions.”
Following the principle that “diagnosis determines treatment,” the Walmart program seeks to create a psychological profile of whiteness that can then be treated through “white anti-racist development.” Whites, according to the trainers, are inherently guilty of “white privilege” and “internalized racial superiority,” the belief that “one’s comfort, wealth, privilege and success has been earned by merits and hard work” rather than through the benefits of systemic racism…
