Verizon Was Telling Employees That Capitalism And White People Are Racist

( While Americans rebel against schools, corporations and governments using anti-white Critical Race Theory “training,” the company with the famous “Can you hear me now” slogan apparently can’t hear them.

Investigative journalist Christopher Rufo reported this week that multinational telecommunications giant Verizon has been subjecting its employees to Critical Race Theory training that, among other things, teaches that the United States is a racist country with a racist economic system (aka capitalism).

Rufo obtained documents from a whistleblower that show in 2020 Verizon launched the “Race & Social Justice” initiative and implemented “an extensive race reeducation program” that uses the core tenets of CRT – including “white fragility,” “systemic racism” and “intersectionality.”

In Verizon’s training module, “Conscious Inclusion & Anti-Racism” diversity trainers tell employees to “deconstruct their racial and sexual identities.” It also instructs them to embark on a lifelong “anti-racism journey” according to their position on the “privilege hierarchy.”

On an official company worksheet, employees had to list their “race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, religion, education, profession, and sexual orientation.” Then they were required to consider their status based on the theory of intersectionality in order to determine whether they fell into the “oppressor” or “oppressed” category.

An educational video for Verizon’s #Next20 series featured Verizon’s vice president David Hubbard interviewing Khalil Muhammad, the great-grandson of former Nation of Islam leader Elijah Muhammad. Muhammad lectured Verizon’s employees about the evils of teaching things like “American exceptionalism.”

Echoing the garbage peddled in the 1619 Project, Muhammad also accused America of being founded on “systems of racism” which he claims remain the root of American society today. Naturally Muhammad also attacked the police, claiming their entire reason for existence is to keep “kids” locked up and make sure “people stay in their communities.”

According to Rufo, Verizon claims that its goal in using these videos and its broader antiracism program is to “accelerate systemic change.”

Yeah, right.

The only “systemic change” this kind of hectoring, accusatory, race-obsessed garbage is accelerating is more division, more distrust, and more racism.
