It’s a woke world in spite of everything.
Disney is forcing critical race theory on employees in a new plan referred to as “Reimagine Tomorrow,” urging employees to acknowledge their “white privilege,” in a battery of coaching modules on subjects reminiscent of “systemic racism” and “white fragility,” in response to inner paperwork obtained by City-Journal’s Christopher Rufo.
Staffers are informed to reject “equality” for “equity” and should “reflect” on America’s “racist infrastructure” and “think carefully about whether or not [their] wealth” is derived from racism, in response to the paperwork.
In one anti-racism coaching course, referred to as “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” employees are taught that the US has a “long history of systemic racism and transphobia” and informed they need to “take possession of teaching your self about structural anti-black racism.
Staffers ought to “not rely on your black colleagues to educate you,” which is “emotionally taxing,” the docs reportedly instruct,
Disney recommends its staffers hit the books, suggesting one essay that encourages mother and father to decide to “raising race-consciousness in children” and which teaches that “even babies discriminate” towards members of different races.
The far-left flip by the home of Mickey Mouse has led to sky-high tensions, however staffers are terrified about talking out towards the ideology, a number of employees informed City-Journal.
“There are “almost daily memos, suggested readings, panels, and seminars that [are] all centered around antiracism,” one worker informed the outlet.
The firm is “completely ideologically one-sided” and actively discourages Christian and or conservative employees from talking their thoughts, the employee mentioned.
“I attended several [training sessions] at the beginning just to see what the temperature of the discussion would be and to gauge if I would be able to bring up my own objections in a safe way—safe meaning for my career. And I’ve continually gotten the unspoken answer: ‘no,’” the worker informed the outlet.
“It’s been very stifling to feel like everyone keeps talking about having open dialogue and compassionate conversations, but when it comes down to it, I know if I said one thing that was truthful, based on data, or even just based on my own personal experience, it would actually be rather unwelcomed,” the individual continued,
The firm has additionally backed a “21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge” day the place members are informed they “all been raised in a society that elevates white culture over others,” City-Journal reported.
As a part of the problem, staffers study their “white privilege” and are requested to fill out a white privilege “checklist,” with selections reminiscent of: “I am white,” “I am heterosexual,” “I am a man,” “I still identity as the gender I was born in,” “I have never been raped,” “I don’t rely on public transportation,” and “I have never been called a terrorist.”
The firm has lately proven a willingness to embrace the new ideology, including “content advisories” to movies reminiscent of “Dumbo,” “Aladdin,” and “Fantasia.”
And it fired “Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano in February after she made what had been thought of right-wing feedback on social media.
“The great irony of this is that the people who are in charge of Disney are some of the richest and most powerful and privileged white males in the history of humanity and they are pushing this divisive, critical race theory based ideology as corporate dogma and the only end of this is division. It’s self-hatred,” Rufo mentioned Friday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
