Woke AT&T Training Program Tells Employees that Only White People Can Be Racist

Telecom giant AT&T is training employees that only white people can be racist and all whites are irredeemably evil.

City Journal writer Christopher F. Rufo recently discovered a cache of documents from the communication company that showed that it is pushing reparations, the defund the police movement, and transgenderism along with saying that racism is “unique” only to white people.

As Rufo wrote last week:

I have obtained a cache of internal documents about the company’s initiative, called Listen Understand Act, which is based on the core principles of critical race theory, including “intersectionality,” “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” and “white fragility.” CEO John Stankey launched the program last year and, subsequently, has told employees that private corporations such as AT&T have an “obligation to engage on this issue of racial injustice” and push for “systemic reforms in police departments across the country.”

AT&T CEO John Stankey pushed out the program in 2020 telling employees that private corporations have an “obligation to engage on this issue of racial injustice” and advocate for “systemic reforms in police departments across the country.”

Rufo also discovered that managers are not rated just on their actual job but also on their commitment to social justice issues.

According to a senior employee, who agreed to speak on condition of anonymity, managers at AT&T are now assessed annually on diversity issues, with mandatory participation in programs such as discussion groups, book clubs, mentorship programs, and race reeducation exercises. White employees, the source said, are tacitly expected to confess their complicity in “white privilege” and “systemic racism,” or they will be penalized in their performance reviews. As part of the overall initiative, employees are asked to sign a loyalty pledge to “keep pushing for change,” with suggested “intentions” such as “reading more about systemic racism” and “challenging others’ language that is hateful.” “If you don’t do it,” the senior employee says, “you’re [considered] a racist.” AT&T did not respond when asked for comment.

The company also requires employees to sign a “loyalty oath” to “push for change” and embrace extremist, anti-white, anti-American, liberal causes.

Rufo added: “On the first page of AT&T’s Listen Understand Act internal portal, the company encourages employees to study an article titled ‘White America, if you want to know who’s responsible for racism, look in the mirror.’” This article asserts that the US is a “racist society” and explicitly blames whites people for the US’s lingering problems: “White people, you are the problem. Regardless of how much you say you detest racism, you are the sole reason it has flourished for centuries.” Dahleen Glanton, the article’s author, wrote that “American racism is a uniquely white trait” and that “Black people cannot be racist.” She also went on to say that white women, “have been telling lies on black men since they were first brought to America in chains,” and, along with their white male counterparts, “enjoy the opportunities and privileges that white supremacy affords [them].”

This obscene wokeness is destroying America.
