A video of a government sponsored “Cultural Sensitivity Training” program has surfaced, showing USDA employees banging on tables and chanting in unison to the speakers instructions that “the pilgrims were illegal aliens”. Additionally, the political correctness gets ratcheted up a notch when the instructor tells his class that the term “minorities” is no longer acceptable, and instead suggests using the phrase “emerging majorities”. Nothing like a little government sponsored race-baiting to brighten up one’s day – to the tune of nearly $200,000.
Via Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch today released previously unseen USDA videos revealing a compulsory “Cultural Sensitivity Training” program requiring USDA employees to bang on tables, chanting in unison “The pilgrims were illegal aliens” while being instructed to no longer use the word “minorities,” but to replace it with “emerging majorities.” Judicial Watch received the videos pursuant to a May 18, 2012, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.
The sensitivity training sessions, described as “a huge expense” by diversity awareness trainer and self-described “citizen of the world” Samuel Betances, were held on USDA premises. The diversity event is apparently part of what USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack described in a memo sent to all agency employees as a “new era of Civil Rights” and “a broader effort towards cultural transformation at USDA.” In 2011 and 2012, the USDA paid Betances and his firm nearly $200,000 for their part in the “cultural transformation” program.
Here is the clip of the USDA employees being asked to shout “thank you black folks” and chant the phrase “pilgrims were illegal aliens”.
In watching the entire clip, one can hear Betances give a lecture on the evil white man from the United States taking over portions of Mexico. He surmises that illegal aliens should be given respect, because technically in his head, lands like Texas, California and New Mexico belonged to them in the first place.
Here is the entire clip for your enjoyment…
