It’s a woke world after all.
Disney is forcing critical race theory on employees in a new plan called “Reimagine Tomorrow,” urging workers to recognize their “white privilege,” in a battery of training modules on topics such as “systemic racism” and “white fragility,” according to internal documents obtained by City-Journal’s Christopher Rufo.
Staffers are told to reject “equality” for “equity” and must “reflect” on America’s “racist infrastructure” and “think carefully about whether or not [their] wealth” is derived from racism, according to the documents.
In one anti-racism training course, called “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” workers are taught that the US has a “long history of systemic racism and transphobia” and told they must “take ownership of educating yourself about structural anti-black racism.
Staffers should “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 parents to commit to “raising race-consciousness in children” and which teaches that “even babies discriminate” against members of other races.
The far-left turn by the house of Mickey Mouse has led to sky-high tensions, but staffers are terrified about speaking out against the ideology, multiple employees told City-Journal.
“There are “almost daily memos, suggested readings, panels, and seminars that [are] all centered around antiracism,” one employee told the outlet.
The company is “completely ideologically one-sided” and actively discourages Christian and or conservative workers from speaking their mind, the worker said.
“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 employee told 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 person continued,
The company has also backed a “21-Day Racial Equity and Social Justice Challenge” day where participants are told they “all been raised in a society that elevates white culture over others,” City-Journal reported.
As part of the challenge, staffers learn about their “white privilege” and are asked to fill out a white privilege “checklist,” with choices such as: “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 company has recently shown a willingness to embrace the new ideology, adding “content advisories” to films such as “Dumbo,” “Aladdin,” and “Fantasia.”
And it fired “Mandalorian” actress Gina Carano in February after she made what were considered right-wing comments 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 said Friday on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”
