The Trump administration issues a memo to federal agencies demanding the end to racial sensitivity trainings for government employees.

“The President has directed me to ensure that federal agencies cease and desist from using taxpayer dollars to fund these divisive, un-American propaganda training sessions,” states the memo, written by Office and Management and Budget Director Russell Vought.

According to the memo, racial sensitivity trainings are “un-American propaganda” that teach that America is an “inherently racist or evil country” and that “virtually all white people contribute to racism.”

These trainings are fairly common and are intended to help organizations recognize ways to better serve employees and customers “who are different in race, color, gender, religion, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation” and other categories protected by the Civil Rights Act. The overall goal is to recognize and treat discrimination.

The memo also claims that these trainings teach “Critical Race Theory,” which, they say, perpetuates a belief that all white Americans are racist and evil.

Critical Race Theory is a legal study on systemic racism — how political, economic, and societal institutions unintentionally harm Black people and their communities without any effort by the people at those institutions. The theory has existed for over 30 years. The Trump Administration’s narrative is the exact opposite, painting the theory as an ideology in which all white people are born racist and evil.

Trump’s propaganda around the theory and sensitivity trainings continues when he orders black history to be removed from schools.
