Carlson likened the demand to “decolonize your library” to “burn books”
Rufo said employee training modules have made Disney the “happiest place in the world” into “the wokest place on Earth.”
“The great irony of this is that the people in charge are some of the richest, most powerful and privileged white men in human history, and they are pushing this critical ideology based on race theory. “
Rufo says Disney executives have “bombarded” employees with training on “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “white fragility,” and launched racially-segregated “affinity groups” at headquarters. the company.
Training materials show staff were asked to complete a “privilege checklist” and read a series of how-to guides, including “75 Things Whites Can Do for Racial Justice.”

Carlson asked him, “Is there any indication of which lives matter and which lives don’t matter, according to the Walt Disney Company?” “

“Their aim was to allow for a diversity of thought and discussion on the incredibly complex and difficult issues of race and discrimination that we face as a society and businesses nationwide,” the spokesperson said.
“The Disney brand has a long history of inclusiveness, with stories that reflect acceptance and tolerance and celebrate people’s differences, as we’ve consistently demonstrated,” the Disney spokesperson said, citing recent movies like Moana, Coco, Black Panther, Soul and Raya. and the last dragon. “As a global entertainment company, we are committed to continuing to tell stories that reflect the rich diversity of the human experience. ”
