New York City Mayor Eric Adams is reportedly forcing his city employees into a radical critical race theory-inspired training, according to a copy of the training reviewed by Fox News Digital.
“The training provides all NYC employees with a framework to understand… the importance of racial equity… in the workplace,” the email said.
Training must be completed by March 6th.
From Fox News:
The controversial lens expressed in the training is called critical race theory, which holds that America is and was always structurally racist; CRT adds that the U.S. was designed from its start to systematically oppress minority groups in order to uphold systems of power for the dominant culture or White racial group. CRT also maintains an oppressor versus oppressed lens of society and classifies people into groups based on supposed “privilege.”
A source familiar with the “racial equity” training told Fox News Digital, “Where they were discussing equity, how we have to look at people through a particular lens, that contradicted… [the idea that] we should treat everybody equally.”
“I do not agree with what they want us to do as city employees. The [racial equity training] leads me to believe that they want the contracts with the city and the hiring from the city being looked at through this lens. And that’s what I think is really unfair. It goes against their [stated claims]… that everybody should be treated equally.”
The training said that there was no scientific basis to race, and that it was invented to create a system of “exclusion and oppression.”
