Melissa Hill, a Walmart, said, “Walmart began offering Racial Equity Institute (REI) training sessions in 2018 for corporate leaders to share analysis and information about race history in the U.S. as well as their institutional and encourage reflection on systemic racial inequality in structural forms.” spokesperson told Granthshala Business. “While the company does not agree with all of the ideas presented, we have found these sessions to be thought-provoking and constructive.”

Hill referred Christopher Rufo, a senior fellow at the Manhattan Institute who published training material and wrote about them city ​​journal.

She told Granthshala Business, “Contrary to the claim in the Citi Journal article, the program was designed for corporate executives and salaried managers, not frontline hourly associates.” She acknowledged that Rufo’s content is an accurate representation of the training, but she also claimed that her article misrepresented her “overall tone”.

“While the City Journal cites excerpts from individual pages of the curriculum, the language selected does not reflect the overall tone of the conversation,” Hill emphasized. She said the training was “developed in a way that aligns with our core value of respecting the individual.”

The training material published by Rufo claims that citizens of United States of america Participate in the legacy of racial inequality.

“If you are a citizen of the United States, part of the inheritance you have inherited is the historical, systematic, and pervasive way in which benefits, privileges, and power have been created for those of the white race and those known as whites. in the country,” the content claims.

The material claims that for “oppression” to be successful, “we must collude or cooperate.” White people “cooperate” by following their “internal racist conditioning,” which leads them to say, “I’m not a racist, I’m a good white person.”

One passage lists “characteristics” of “white supremacy culture,” including “perfectionism,” “worship of the written word,” “individualism,” and “fairness.” Among the problems with “fairness”, the document lists “the idea that there is such a thing as being objective or ‘neutral'” and “requiring people to think in a linear (logical) fashion.”

Civil rights veteran Bob Woodson, founder and president of The Woodson Center, denounced the training in an interview with Granthshala Business.

“It’s the most outrageous proposition I’ve ever heard,” Woodson said of the suggestion that fairness is an aspect of white supremacy culture. He noted that in the vaudeville show, “white people used to put on blackface and act as if they were retarded, slow, irresponsible, all the things that progressives call today, the opposite of ‘acting white’.” He said the training encouraged an insult to the “stereotypes of what it means to be black”.

Woodson also thought about what Walmart stores would look like if they actually implemented a policy of avoiding “white supremacy culture.”

“If a customer asked for a car, the employee would say, ‘If you were here earlier, you would have got one.’ Because it’s white to be efficient and bring the carts back,” he explained. “Since punctuality is also white, half the staff will show up late and there will be long lines at the checkout.”

“What would happen to sales receipts if prices were not marked up correctly?” Woodson asked, noting that true prices are “an act of perfectionism.”

“I don’t know how a black person can hold their head and sit around saying that to someone,” Woodson said. “It’s an insult and if people don’t express their displeasure at this outrageous, despicable, patronizing, approach of Walmart, then there’s something sick about them.”

Justin Danhoff, a Walmart shareholder through the National Center for Public Policy Research, also condemned the training.

“As a shareholder of Walmart, I’d really like to know how much money the company is spending for this racist propaganda to its employees,” Danhof told Granthshala Business. “I also want to know whether Walmart employees were given the opportunity to object to this madness without fear of retaliation.”

Danhof said, “The company’s managers – in a mandatory training – that they are guilty of ‘white supremacy thinking’ is beyond insanity.” “But this is the exact position Corporate America is playing with as more and more companies adopt racist and Marxist training programs.”
