Walmart CEO makes staff take race-based training that teaches ‘white is not right’
The program reportedly kicks off with the claim that the U.S. is a “white-supremacy system” designed by white Europeans.
More than 1,000 Walmart executives have had to undergo race-based training that forces them to confront their “white privilege” and asserts that white people are guilty of “white supremacy thinking,” claims a whistleblower.
The training program was launched in 2018 under President and CEO Doug McMillon through the Racial Equity Institute, a North Carolina-based firm that works with universities, government agencies and corporations.
McMillon made the program mandatory for execs, and it is also recommended to the company’s hourly-wage employees, according to documents leaked to City Journal .
The program reportedly kicks off with the claim that the U.S. is a “white-supremacy system” designed by white Europeans “for the purpose of assigning and maintaining white skin access to power and privilege.”
It adds that white Americans have been subjected to “racist conditioning,” and the country’s history has been dealing with oppression for far too long.

According to the whistleblower, discussions about racist conditioning are then conducted in racially segregated groups because different races have “their own work to do in understanding and addressing racism.”
Employees who are racial minorities suffer from “constructed racist oppression” and “internalized racial inferiority” and begin to believe all the negative messages they receive as persons of colour or, as the documents state, “myths promoted by the racist system.”
Trainers are allegedly taught about the struggles of employees of colour, all while being made to feel guilty of “white privilege” and “internalized racial superiority.”
