A consultancy firm employee working on a project for Hasbro has turned whistleblower and is exposing disturbing Critical Race Theory training at the company that he claims promotes the concept that 3 to 6-month old babies can be racist.
The Rhode Island-based toy and board game giant is allegedly using packaging and other features to market the provocative and contentious ideology to children. David Johnson has since had his privileges suspended at the company for coming forward pending an investigation but hasn’t been fired yet.
Johnson is a contractor placed by IT recruitment firm Harvey Nash according to Project Veritas. He revealed to Fox News host Sean Hannity on Monday that he was notified of the scheduling of Critical Race Theory-related training. That was when he decided to record the lecture and take it public.
According to Johnson, Conscious Kids co-founder Kate Ishizuka-Stephens informed the attendees at the training that “by 3 to 6 months, babies are beginning to notice and already express preference by race.” She stated later during the presentation, “By age three, children are already starting to apply stereotypes, and research shows that they also may use racist language intentionally at this age. White children at this age may report explicit or overt negative attitudes towards people of color. By age four, kids are showing a strong and consistent pro-white anti-black bias.”

“At the age of five, children show many of the same racial attitudes held by adults – children are really sensitive to the status of different racial groups in our society and show a high-status bias towards white people, which is the socially privileged group in our society. White children show pro-white bias at this age,” Ishizuka-Stephens stated.
Johnson was alarmed by Ishizuka-Stephens’ comments and wanted parents to know what the company could be exposing their children to.
“I think it’s absurd to just state as fact that at two years old, that children are going to be racist, and using race to reason about who they’re going to play with, and discriminating based on,” Johnson said.
Hasbro markets beloved Milton Bradley games such as Monopoly, Battleship, and other Parker Brothers games. That includes Mr. Potato Head who they tried to gender rebrand recently.
Johnson explained why he opposes the racist ideology. He says it runs counter to the teachings of civil rights leaders such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“CRT teaches people — and at Hasbro they wanted to teach children — to judge people based on race. And that’s not something that I feel that I think Dr. Martin Luther King would’ve supported,” he remarked. “That’s something [King] wanted to end in this country. It’s not the correct path forward that we should be taking.”

Attorney and civil rights activist Leo Terrell praised Johnson on Hannity’s show for coming forward and thanked him for being brave enough to speak out despite the cost to him personally.
“I want to make sure everyone hears this. People of all colors are against Critical Race Theory. It is important for black Americans like you, sir, and myself to say we are not part of that. We believe in judging people by their character and not by skin color. So, sir, you have done a great job in throwing a wedge into Critical Race Theory because they want you to believe that all of us support that. We do not. Thank you. Thank you very much,” Terrell told the young contractor.
After finding out that Johnson was under investigation at Hasbro, Hannity asked Terrell if he could help him out.
“You are on notice, Hasbro,” Terrell stated. “Let me think about that (helping Johnson). Yeah.”
Johnson said that he understands the “cost of speaking truth to power” and warned Americans against Critical Race Theory.
Commenters on Twitter fully support Johnson and this will probably be a PR nightmare for Hasbro:
Martin Luther King would be appalled by this movement of seeing and judging everyone through race.

David Johnson is a man of quality and character. I am glad to see people like him are maturing in America.
I never knew that @Hasbro was leading the charge against racially biased hater 3 year olds. I will keep that in mind when I look at their products

@hasbro I’m a customer and if I so much as see the slightest bit of this nonsense in toys marketed to my children, you can count on my money going elsewhere.

Brave young man. And out of recent whistleblowers, I think he explains the CRT problem the best.
