The police are not doing that. You are talking about liberal politicians, the media, and today's medical establishment.
Verizon Endorses Anti-Police Speakers, Critical Race Theorists In Employee Training
Telecommunications company Verizon has implemented a so-called “anti-racism” training for employees to help them decide whether they are “oppressed” or “oppressors” as they work to understand how racist the U.S. is, according to a whistleblower.
The company has also been pushing employees to endorse a number of left-wing ideals, to include defunding law enforcement, according to investigative reporter Christopher Rufo.
Rufo said a Verizon whistleblower handed him a slew of documents regarding the “Race & Social Justice” initiative the company established last year.
Among the programs created through the initiative is the “Conscious Inclusion & Anti-Racism” race reeducation program for employees, which is laden with critical race theory concepts such as “white fragility” and “systemic racism,” Rufo noted.
Verizon employees are given official company worksheets so they can list out their “race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, religion, education, profession, and sexual orientation” to help determine whether they are “oppressed” or an “oppressor,” according to Rufo.
This information also helps employees determine where they fall on the “privilege” hierarchy, as they commit to a lifelong “anti-racism journey,” the investigative reporter noted.
“Weaponized White privilege” is a real threat in the workplace, according to Verizon’s speakers and diversity trainers.
Employees must be careful not to commit “microinequities” and “microaggressions,” which they note are often “unconscious or subtle” but can make “oppressed” people “feel different, violated, or unsafe,” Rufo said.
According to the training, “members of the privileged classes must instead engage in the ‘lifelong process’ of demonstrating ‘accountability with marginalized individuals,’” Rufo recounted.
Verizon also has a video presentation for workers entitled, “Let’s talk about privilege,” featuring former Global Chief Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Officer Ramcess Jean-Louis, according to the information uncovered by Rufo.
“As a black man in [America], we are viewed as less than. We are viewed as inferior. We are viewed that our life is not as valuable as anyone else,” an emotional Jean-Louis declares in the footage. “If we are not being viewed as humans, if we’re not being viewed as whole people with souls, these things happen and they will continue to happen.”
He further argued that the nation’s “early version of global capitalism” was built on a slave economy that he says still prevails today, and claimed modern businesses are “exploiting poor people in low-income communities.”
According to Muhammad, law enforcement officers in the U.S. are designed to enforce geographic segregation, to maintain a “two-tier society,” and to shelter the “wealth gap” between black and white citizens, Rufo said.
Police aim to “make sure people stay in their communities,” to ensure “kids are locked up,” and to help continue “criminalizing poverty,” the professor declared.
