SCOOP: Google has launched an "antiracism" initiative claiming that America is a "system of white supremacy" and that all Americans are "raised to be racist"—including Ben Shapiro, who is depicted as a layer of the "white supremacy pyramid," culminating in "genocide."


I have obtained a trove of whistleblower documents from inside Google that reveal the company’s extensive racial-reeducation program, based on the core tenets of critical race theory—including "intersectionality," "white privilege," and "systemic racism."

In a module called "Allyship in Action," Google trained employees to deconstruct their racial and sexual identities, and then rank themselves on a hierarchy of "power [and] privilege," then “manage [their] reactions" through "cry[ing]" and "accessing [their] 'happy place.'"

In a video, guest lecturer Ibram Kendi claimed that all Americans, including children as young as 3 months old, are racist: "To be raised in the United States, is to be raised to be racist, and to be raised to be racist is to be raised to almost be addicted to racist ideas."

Denial of racism is proof that a person is racist. "For me, the heartbeat of racism is denial and the sound of that denial is 'I'm not racist,'" Kendi told Google employees. "It's a critically important step for Americans to no longer be in denial about their own racism."

In another video, guest lecturer Nikole Hannah-Jones claimed that she created the 1619 Project to verify her "lifelong theory" that everything in the modern-day United States can be traced back to slavery: "If you name anything in America, I can relate it back to slavery."

Jones claimed that "the first Africans being sold [in 1619] is more foundational to the American story" than "the Pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock."

"If you're white in this country," she said, "you are the beneficiary of a 350-year system of white supremacy."

A Google DEI Lead created an internal document called "Anti-racism resources," containing readings and racial-consciousness exercises. One graphic claims that "colorblindness," "Columbus Day," "weaponized whiteness," and "Make America Great Again" are "covert white supremacy."

Another graphic, titled "The White Supremacy Pyramid," advances the idea that conservative commentator Ben Shapiro is a foundation of "white supremacy" and that Donald Trump is moving society on a path toward "mass murder" and "genocide."

In 2015, Google quietly ditched its corporate motto, "Don’t Be Evil." Maybe the company, which has now become the world's library, should revisit that decision.
