(Video) Purest kind of race hate: Tucker Carlson slams Seattle employee training on ‘undoing whiteness’
Fox News host Tucker Carlson urged people to stand up to racial hatred, which he views in the Seattle’s new training session held for white employees to “undo” their whiteness as it relates to certain privileges.
The training session, dubbed “Interrupting Internalized Racial Superiority and Whiteness,” encourages white employees to let go of comforts such as “guaranteed physical safety,” “control over the land,” “social status,” and “relationships with some other white people.” The training also goes through a flow chart on how white people “cause harm to POC” and how they’re unable to see opportunities to be allies to minorities.
“Prepare to be unemployed, pale employees of Seattle, your color disgusts us,” Carlson said Thursday of what he believes the agenda entails. “All that actually happened in Seattle.”
Carlson accused people who support this type of program of being hypocritical in their views, comparing it to a type of conversion therapy that’s been done on gay and transgender people.
“The people doing the attacking, by the way, would tell you with a straight face how opposed they are to gay conversion therapy because, of course, it’s immoral to try to change people’s intrinsic qualities,” he said. “This isn’t about principles. It’s about hate, humiliation, and power. It’s about hurting people, it always is. Telling people they’re inferior because of their skin color was wrong when it happened 60 years ago in Alabama, it is every bit as wrong when it happens today in Seattle or at Yale or Google Headquarters or your at kid’s elementary schools.”
Carlson also encouraged people to speak out about training they feel uncomfortable about, calling the Seattle training a form of race hate.
“Attacking people on the basis of the race is a sin, there is nothing worse for a country,” he said. “They can try to disguise it with Orwellian terms like ‘anti-racism,’ but this is the purest kind of race hate. It will destroy America faster than anything else. Don’t put up with it. Resist, speak out, fight back. This is totally wrong. Until you stand up, it will continue.”
Attention to racial equity heightened following the May 25 death of George Floyd in police custody. Protests that began as demanding justice have broadened into calls for a national reckoning and reconsideration toward practices and symbols deemed racist and oppressive.
