More than 1,000 Walmart executives have had to undergo race-based training that forces them to confront their “white privilege” and claims that whites are guilty of “thinking about white supremacy,” claims one whistleblower.

The training program was launched in 2018 under the direction of President and CEO Doug McMillon through the Racial Equity Institute, a North Carolina-based company that works with universities, government agencies, and corporations.

McMillon made the program mandatory for executives, and it is also recommended to the company’s hourly wage employees, according to documents leaked to City diary .

The show reportedly begins with the claim that the United States is a “white supremacy system” designed by white Europeans “for the purpose of assigning and maintaining white-skinned access to power and privilege.”

He adds that white Americans have been subjected to “racist conditioning” and the country’s history has been grappling with oppression for far too long.

According to the complainant, discussions about racist conditioning take place in racially segregated groups because different races have “their own work to do to understand and address racism.”

Employees belonging to racial minorities suffer from “constructed racist oppression” and “internalized racial inferiority” and begin to believe all the negative messages they receive as people of color or, as the documents say, “myths promoted by the racist system.”

Coaches are allegedly taught about the struggles of employees of color, all while being made to feel guilty about “white privilege” and “internalized racial superiority.”

Nutshell? By promoting “white supremacy thinking”, it is “detrimental to both people of color and whites.”

Despite Walmart’s commitment to diversity, fairness and inclusion, only one of its top executives is a person of color and the majority of its vice presidents are white.

Walmart confirmed that the company has worked with the Racial Equity Institute on “a series of training sessions since 2018” and has “found these sessions stimulating and constructive,” the publication reported.

Moving forward, white executives, managers, and coaches must change their mindset and replace the belief that “whites are not okay” with “whites can do the right thing.”
