‘Really unfair’: Mayor Adams requiring NYC employees to submit to ‘radical’ Critical Race Theory training

New York City Mayor Eric Adams is reportedly requiring all city employees to take Critical Race Theory-based training by March 6, according to a copy of the instructional materials, forcing the racial equity-based mandate on everyone whether they like it or not.

The training was sent to Fox News Digital via email, which reads, “The training provides all NYC employees with a framework to understand… the importance of racial equity… in the workplace.”

Critical Race Theory (CRT) claims that America is and always has been structurally racist. It contends that the nation was designed and founded to systematically oppress minority groups in order to keep the dominant white culture in power. CRT also adheres to an oppressor versus oppressed ideology that engenders outrage over “white privilege.”

A source told Fox News Ditial concerning the training, “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 source charged.

According to the touted training, there is no scientific basis for race. It allegedly proclaims that it was invented to create a system of “exclusion and oppression.”

“Race has no genetic or scientific basis. It is a social construct created to classify people on the arbitrary basis of skin color and other physical features,” the training reportedly states. “Despite this, race has a very real impact on people’s lives. This is because our society has used race to establish and justify systems of power, privilege, exclusion, and oppression.”

It also puts forth the notion that there are two other types of racism besides “individual racism.”

“Institutional racism: policies, practices, patterns, and structures within public and private institutions that impose oppressive or otherwise negative conditions on identifiable groups on the basis of race or ethnicity,” the training explains, according to Fox News Digital. “Structural racism/Systematic racism: Racism that occurs across multiple institutions and is integrated into politics, culture, and other aspects of life. Creating a system that negatively impacts communities of color compared to White communities.”

The mandated education says that all New York City workplaces should maintain an “equity lens” by implementing “antiracism training” in their workforces. They are pushed to create “safe spaces” where race can be discussed on a regular basis. It also urges addressing “unconscious bias” which the training claims may be causing a racist work environment.

“To foster equity. Embrace the idea that a problem may exist. Become aware of systematic racism and the possible presence of racial inequity in your workplace,” the training urges employees. “Understand the dominant cultural patterns of your workplace and whether they are hurting or helping your diversity, equity, and inclusion goals.”

“Be Conscious. Unconscious Bias. Implicit bias occurs when our brains make quick judgments and assess people and situations without us consciously knowing or realizing it. These biases are pervasive and employees often possess them unintentionally,” the training materials admonish.

The move by Adams to force Critical Race Theory on city employees appears to be one more effort to placate leftists regardless of the validity of CRT.
