Shareholder criticizes Walmart for pushing CRT training on executives and employees • National Legal And Policy Center
On Wednesday, the National Legal and Policy Center introduced a resolution at Walmart Inc.’s annual shareholder meeting that would demand greater transparency and a greater breakdown by the company of its charitable contributions.
The company’s board of directors opposed our proposal, as explained on pages 97-98 of its proxy statement.
Paul Chesser, director of the NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project, spoke as the sponsor of the resolution. A transcript of his three-minute remarks, which you can listen to here, follows:
I’m Paul Chesser, director of the Corporate Integrity Project for the National Legal and Policy Center.
First, I commend Walmart for at least having some infrastructure on its Foundation website that allows users to search and find recipients who have received over $25,000.
That said, Walmart no longer has any excuse not to implement our proposal, because you have the website infrastructure in place.
Now all you have to do is upload donations below the $25,000 threshold you set, as well as those over two years old.
If, as you say, you’re so proud to let your individual stores donate on their own, why can’t I go to Walmart’s website and find out who my local store has donated to?
Now, as for nature corporate donations – there is disturbing evidence surrounding Walmart management’s decision-making and contributions that makes our call for transparency even more urgent.
In October, it was revealed that Walmart had implemented mandatory Critical Race Theory training for its executives.
And the program is “recommended” for hourly employees.
The company admitted that it has been running this program since 2018.
In the program, employees are told that the United States is a “white supremacist system,” designed by white Europeans “for the purpose of allocating and maintaining white people’s access to power and privilege.”
He also states that white Americans have been subjected to “racist conditioning” that indoctrinates them into “white supremacy”.
It’s the same garbage that swung the Virginia state election last year from blue to red.
This is the same state that overwhelmingly voted for Barack Obama twiceremember??
And not too long ago, my organization, a longtime Walmart shareholder, confronted CEO Doug McMillon about the company’s financial support of racial demagogue Al Sharpton.
Are you still funding Al Sharpton, Mr. McMillon?
We don’t forget that Walmart co-sponsored its 60e birthday party.
Improving Walmart’s transparency on charity would clarify something like this.
These gifts and training programs, as stated by our friends who sponsored proposal number 8, “create a racially hostile work environment” and pit employees of different races against one another.
Having been married for 30 years and raising four children, my family regularly shopped at Walmart during that time.
I can’t think of a retailer I’ve frequented that has been more pleasantly and harmoniously diverse than Walmart in all this time.
But now, due to a Marxist backlash led by Black Lives Matter crooks against a few wayward police, many of our great cities have been destroyed and crime has skyrocketed.
Meanwhile, Walmart’s solution is to impose a racial loot system on its employees and through its charity.
It’s not leadership, and it’s not transparency. It is cowardice.
Please vote FOR proposal number 9.
