The late Sam Walton built a multi-billion-dollar retail empire by being unabashedly pro-America and pro-middle class.
“Swim upstream,” Walton once advised. “Go the other way. Ignore the conventional wisdom.”
Yet those who now run his sprawling company have shown they are wholly open to adopting the conventional woke wisdom of many of their Fortune 500 peers.
In a Twitter thread on Thursday, conservative journalist Christopher Rufo revealed that Walmart has gone whole hog for Critical Race Theory indoctrination.
Walmart, he wrote, “has launched a critical race theory training program that denounces the United States as a ‘white supremacy system’ and teaches white hourly-wage workers that they are guilty of ‘white supremacy thinking’ and ‘internalized racial superiority.’”
Rufo noted that Walmart started the program before CRT became a political hot potato.
Since working with the Racial Equity Institute in 2018, the Arkansas-based company has trained more than 1,000 of its workers on the “core principles” of critical race theory, including things like “internalized racial oppression,” and “white anti-racist development.”
“The program begins with the claim that the United States is a ‘white supremacy system,’ designed by white Europeans for maintaining ‘white skin access to power and privilege,’” Rufo wrote.
“Whites are thus subjected to ‘racist conditioning’ that indoctrinates them into ‘white supremacy.’”
The Walmart way asserts white Americans are “inherently guilty of ‘white privilege’ and ‘internalized racial superiority,’” which Rufo said is the belief that “’one’s comfort, wealth, privilege and success has been earned by merits and hard work’ rather than through the benefits of systemic racism.”
According to Walmart’s race hustlers, “white supremacy culture” is known by personality traits such as “individualism,” “objectivity,” “paternalism,” “defensiveness,” “power hoarding,” “right to comfort,” and “worship of the written word” — all of which are “damaging” to people of color.
On the other hand, Walmart tells its minority staffers that they “suffer from ‘constructed racist oppression’ and ‘internalized racial inferiority,’ with internal messages such as ‘we believe there is something wrong with being a person of color’ and ‘we have a sense of limited possibility.’”
The retailer also tells them that they have been “programmed” to believe the “’myths promoted by the racist system’” – which develops in them feelings of “self-hate,” “anger,” “rage,” and “ethnocentrism” – which they survive through forgetting, lying, and stopping “feeling.”
“The solution, according to Walmart, is to encourage whites to participate in ‘white anti-racist development,’ accept their ‘guilt and shame,’ adopt the idea that ‘white is not right,’ acknowledge their racism, and move toward ‘collective action’ whereby ‘white can do right,’” Rufo noted.
Rufo concluded, “The Walmart program is a study in hypocrisy. White male CEO Doug McMillon rakes in $22 million a year, while lecturing his hourly-wage employees on their ‘internalized racial superiority’ and ‘internalized racial inferiority.’”
“The formula of ‘woke capital’ is clear: American executives — the most privileged people on the planet — can collect accolades and social status by pledging allegiance to DEI [diversity, equity and inclusion] and telling workers they’re racist oppressors.”
Note: Walmart CEO Doug McMillion makes $22.574 million a year.
