Trump Says Stop Racism Training

 The order is here.  If a training promotes that idea that one race promotes racism, or requires workers to admit to being beneficiaries of racism, it gets no funding.  This critical race garbage aggravates any existing racism out there and funnels taxpayer money into the pockets of charlatans.  

Racism exists.  But:

For example, according to press reports, employees across the Executive Branch have been required to attend trainings where they are told that "virtually all White people contribute to racism" or where they are required to say that they "benefit from racism." According to press reports, in some cases these training have further claimed that there is racism embedded in the belief that America is the land of opportunity or the belief that the most qualified person should receive a job.

I do not doubt this.  The college who we dare not name is currently promoting a at least for now voluntary self-criticism program built around the idea this collection of generally progressive whites are beneficiaries of racism--and yet they are still teaching, instead of engaging in career seppuku.  

The promotion of these ideas accomplishes nothing useful.  If "virtually all White people contribute to racism," then every white university instructor should be fired immediately as well as all white K-12 teachers.  And all white cops, judges, and social workers.  And all white prosecutors and public defenders.  

This would largely unemploy several million progressive and liberal whites.  Like Mao's Great Leap Forward, in which faculty, doctors, and other educated Chinese were sent out to farm, and peasants were made into doctors by fiat.  I doubt that this did much either for crop production or medical care.
