Internal documents reveal AT&T’s guidelines for its employees to undergo racial inequality training by confronting “white privilege.”
Article by Matt McGregor from our premium news partners at The Epoch Times.
“AT&T is another Fortune 100 company that has succumbed to the latest fad: corporate ‘diversity and inclusion’ programming that traffics in the ugly concepts of race essentialism and collective guilt,” Rufo said on Twitter.
The material found in the document is based on the “core teachings of critical race theory,” Rufo said.
Critical race theory is a Marxist-based philosophy that suggests society is a class struggle between oppressors and the oppressed, labeling white people as the oppressors and all other races as the oppressed.
“AT&T Corporation has created a race reeducation program with materials claiming that ‘racism is a uniquely white trait’ and teaching employees: ‘White people, you are the problem,” Rufo said.
The reeducation program promotes the concept that racism is strictly a white characteristic.
AT&T CEO John Stankey started the program he called the “Listen. Understand. Act.” in reaction to the death of George Floyd, Stankey said in a letter found in the documents.
Stankey said surveys have reported that people “are increasingly looking to companies and CEOs to weigh in on the difficult societal and political issues that divide us as a country.”
He said not only has AT&T, headquartered in Dallas, Texas, been working in police reform, but also its employee political action committee suspended contributions to 147 members of Congress who voted not to certify the Electoral College votes of Arizona and Georgia after what he called the “Jan. 6 insurrection at the Capitol.”
The documents cited concepts that claimed that the pandemic created conditions conducive to people facing racism, paralleling racism to the virus by comparing the vulnerability people feel toward the virus with black people and racism, according to Andres Tapia, a diversity and inclusion strategist with Korn Ferry, a global organizational consulting firm.
The documents also contain the “21-Day Racial Equity Habit Building Challenge” written by Dr. Eddie Moore, with the America & Moore diversity education consulting firm.
“Finally, AT&T encourages employees to participate in a 21-Day Racial Equity Habit Challange, which teaches that ‘Whiteness is one of the biggest and most long-running scams ever perpetrated’ and that the ‘weaponization of whiteness’ is a ‘constant barrage of harm’ for minorities,’” Rufo said.
Moore writes that the challenge involves taking actions to “further your understanding of power, privilege, supremacy, oppression, and equity,” as well as reading, listening to podcasts, and watching videos that revolve around the subject of race, such as the book “How White People Got Made,” by Quinn Norton, and watching videos such as “How ‘white fragility’ reinforces racism.”
Moore asks that employees make racial observations, such as what the racial composition is of the surrounding people in a particular environment and to consider what portion of one’s day is engaged in discussing racism.
“Engaging in racially mixed settings can trigger age-old power and privilege dynamics,” Moore said. “The goal is to be a learner more than a knower, exactly the opposite of what dominant U.S. culture teaches us to be.”
Some of the music Moore recommended was “Born this Way,” by Lady Gaga, and “White Privilege,” by Mackelmore.
AT&T did not immediately respond to a request for a comment on the program and if it’s mandatory.
Too Few Are Telling the Truth
Not long ago, conservative media was not beholden to anyone. Today, most sites are stuck on the Big Tech gravy train.
I’ll keep this short. The rise of Pandemic Panic Theater, massive voter fraud, and other “taboo” topics have neutered a majority of conservative news sites. You’ll notice they are very careful about what topics they tackle. Sure, they’ll attack Critical Race Theory, Antifa, and the Biden-Harris regime, but you won’t see them going after George Soros, Bill Gates, the World Economic Forum, or the Deep State, among others.
The reason is simple. They are beholden to Big Tech, and Big Tech doesn’t allow certain topics to be discussed or they’ll cut you off. Far too many conservative news outlets rely on Google, Facebook, and Twitter for the bulk of their traffic. They depend on big checks from Google ads to keep the sites running. I don’t necessarily hold it against them. We all do what we need to do to survive. I just wish more would do like we have, which is to cut out Big Tech altogether.
We don’t get Google checks. We don’t have Facebook or Twitter buttons on our stories. We don’t have a YouTube Channel (banned), and Instagram profile (never made one), or a TikTok (no thanks, CCO). We’re not perfect, but we’re doing everything we can to not owe anything to anyone… other than our readers. We owe YOU the truth. We owe YOU the facts that others won’t reveal about topics that others won’t tackle. And we owe America, this great land that allows us to take hold of these opportunities.
Like I said, I don’t hold other conservative sites under too much scrutiny over their choices. It’s easy for people to point fingers when we’re not the ones paying their bills or supporting their families. I just wish there were more who would break away. Today, only a handful of other major conservative news outlets have broken away from the Big Tech teat. Of course, we need help.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
We are also building partnerships with great conservative sites like The Liberty Daily and The Epoch Times to advance the message as loudly as possible, and we’re always looking for others with which to partner.
Also, we could use contributions of content. If you write or want to start writing and you share our patriotic, conservative, America First ideology, contact us. The contact form on this and all pages on the site goes directly to me.
Some of our content is spread across multiple sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
While donations are the best way to help, you can also support us by buying through our sponsors:
- MyPillow: Use promo code “NOQ” to get up to 66% off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- Freedom Phone: Use promo code “MAGA” and get $50 off AND you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
- OurGoldGuy: Tell them we sent you in your request to buy gold and it will help us… AND (wait for it) you’ll be helping a patriotic, America First company.
We know we could make a lot more money if we sold out like so many “conservative” publications out there. You won’t find Google ads on our site for a reason. Yes, they’re lucrative, but I don’t like getting paid by minions of Satan (I don’t like Google very much if you couldn’t tell).
Time is short. As the world spirals towards The Great Reset, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
We Often Feel Like David Taking on Giants
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page, PayPal, or our brand new GiveSendGo page. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
