Writer, filmmaker, and Senior Fellow at the Manhattan Institute, Christopher Rufo appeared on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News show to discuss a bombshell whistleblower report on The Walt Disney Corporation’s internal practices of critical race theory on the corporate level, which includes encouraging employees to use a “white privilege checklist,” and separates minorities into racially-segregated “affinity groups.” Rufo mocks the “rich, white males” who run the Disney corporation, and calls this shocking Disney report, “The tip of the iceberg.” Tucker Carlson calls the Disney Corporation’s critical race theory, “dark.”
“I think it should be very clear that Disney makes its money on middle Americans, who go to their theme parks, who buy their content. And those people should know that this corporation hates you, it hates your culture and it hates the color of your skin! And I think Americans should reject this kind of politics, and reject the companies that are pushing it, ” Rufo told the Fox News host.

In a tweet by Rufo, he has this to say about the whistleblower documents: “I’ve obtained internal documents that will shock you.”
According to a trove of whistleblower materials, Disney has launched a “diversity and inclusion” program, called “Reimagine Tomorrow,” which includes trainings on “systemic racism,” “white privilege,” “white fragility,” “white saviors,” “microaggressions,” and “antiracism.”

Inside, the “Allyship for Race Consciousness,” are statements telling Disney employees that the deaths of Black Americans at the hands of police officers, many of them with lengthy criminal records, who refused arrest, are due to “systemic racism,” and “transphobia.” The manual also talks about how they stand in solidarity with protests “due to police brutality targeted to Black people around the world.”
Another page in the manual talks about how Disney employees should deepen their insight and knowledge to understand the magnitude of racism their minority colleagues are facing. “Opt for sources from Black authors, journalists, and organizations,” it tells the reader with a list of links below.
White employees are told to “work through feelings of guilt, shame, and defensiveness to understand what is beneath them and what needs to be healed.” They must “listen with empathy [to] Black colleagues” and “not question or debate Black colleagues’ lived experience.” They are told to “Avoid messages like, ‘I can’t believe this is happening,'” when discussing the violent BLM movement with others.
Disney tells employees they should reject “equality,” or “equal treatment,” and instead strive for “equity,” or “the equality of outcome.” They must “reflect” on America’s “racist infrastructure” and “think carefully about whether or not [their] wealth” is derived from racism.
