“For example, according to press reports, executives were required to attend trainings where they were told that“ virtually all white people contribute to racism ”or where they were required to say that they“ benefit from racism ”. According to press reports, in some cases during these trainings it was additionally asserted that the belief that America is a country of opportunity, or the belief that the most qualified person should get a job, is racism, ”the document says..

“The President has proven his reputation as a defender of those whose voice has long been ignored and who have failed to benefit from everything our country has to offer, and he intends to continue to support all Americans, regardless of race, religion or belief. The divisive, false and demeaning propaganda of the critical racial theory movement is contrary to everything we stand for as Americans and should have no place in the federal government, ”said the director of the Office of Management and Budget..
