The Salvation Army has raced to backtrack from its anti-white employee training program after the policy leaked to the public causing a wave of outrage against the 150-year-old charity.
Last week, the Washington Examiner reported that the Salvation Army had instituted an employee training program based on Critical Race Theory and telling workers that whites are born evil and racist. The company also said it hoped that whites would offer a “sincere apology” for being racists for the holidays.
Just one of the outrageous claims made by the program maintains, “In the absence of making anti-racist choices, [white people] consciously uphold aspects of White supremacy, White-dominant culture, and unequal institutions and society.”
Now the charity is running away from its anti-white Critical Race Theory program. The charity put out a statement saying that the news about its employee training programs are untrue.
“[S]ome individuals and groups have recently attempted to mislabel our organization to serve their own agendas. They have claimed that we believe our donors should apologize for their skin color, that The Salvation Army believes America is an inherently racist society, and that we have abandoned our Christian faith for one ideology or another,” the statement explained.
“Those claims are simply false, and they distort the very goal of our work,” the statement added.
Responding to the core of the criticism — the “Let’s Talk About Racism” study guide — the Salvation Army claimed it was issued to members as a “voluntary resource.”
The sudden claims, though, are hard to believe because the Salvation Army still refuses to officially reveal what is in its employee training program.
It is time to end your support for these woke liars.
