Newly revealed training documents used by Disney have the company asking white employees to “decolonize their bookshelves,” support reparations and fill out a “privilege checklist” as part of anti-racism training.
The appeal to discard books is particularly disturbing, given the nature of other groups that have historically called for book-burning.
The media giant has been ridiculed as becoming the “Wokest Place on Earth” after the released training materials showed them adopting “critical race theory” to condition employees.
Journalist Chris Rufo of City Journal first acquired the documents, taking them to Tucker Carlson Tonight where he accused Disney of promoting “division and self-hatred”.
“I think it should be very clear that (Disney) makes its money on middle Americans who go to their theme parks and buys their content, and those people should know that this corporation, it hates you, it hates your culture, and it hates the color of your skin, and I think Americans should reject this kind of politics and reject the companies that are pushing it.
“The great irony of this is the people in charge of 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.”
The released documents show that staff were given a “privilege checklist” to complete and were told to read a series of guides including 75 Things White People Can Do for Racial Justice.
Carlson asked Rufo: “Is there an indication of which lives matter and which lives don’t matter, according to the Walt Disney company?”
“Yeah, there is,” replied Rufo. “What Disney is saying is we should reject the idea of equality, that people should be treated equally regardless of their skin color, and they say they need to pursue a policy of equity where people achieve equal outcomes, and this is the tip of the iceberg.”
A Walt Disney Company spokesperson claimed in an e-mailed statement to DailyMail.com that the documents are being “deliberately distorted as reflective of company policy.”
