A new report claims the Walt Disney Company is pushing critical race theory on its employees as part of an internal training program, teaching them “race consciousness” and other concepts to address “systemic racism” in the U.S.
Manhattan Institute fellow Christopher Rufo on Friday published what he says are a “trove of whistleblower documents” detailing a program titled “Reimagine Tomorrow.”
Rudo also provides in his report what he says are primary-source documents that appear to be pages of a training manual.
“In the past year, Disney executives have elevated the ideology of critical race theory into a new corporate dogma, bombarded employees with trainings on ‘systemic racism,’ ‘white privilege,’ ‘white fragility,’ and ‘white saviors,’ and launched racially segregated ‘affinity groups’ at the company’s headquarters,” Rudo writes.
The documents, which are stamped with the Disney insignia, instruct viewers in tips on “becoming an ally” to black acquaintances, calling anti-racism education “an ongoing learning journey.”
Disney on Saturday did not immediately return a request to verify the documents or comment for this story.
The guide suggests that actions such as “disbelieving the experiences of people of color” can “fuel the underpinnings of discrimination” and urges participants to take part in discussion groups where they act out racial interactions between employees.
The guide also offers “pro inclusion tips” such as “acknowledge that everyone has unconscious biases no matter who we are” and “listen to the experiences of others.”
