Whistleblower Calls Out Popular Toy Company For Teaching Employees CRT [WATCH]

Combined Shape

A whistleblower has come forward to expose the Hasbro toy company for actively promoting critical race theory. Based in Rhode Island, Hasbro is famous for board games such as Monopoly, Battleship, and Operation. They are also known for toys such as My Little Pony, G.I. Joe, and the recently renamed gender-neutral Potato Head.

Whistleblower David Johnson was employed by IT recruitment and consulting firm Harvey Nash, which was working with Hasbro. That is when Johnson found out that the company would hold a seminar on critical race theory.

Johnson recorded the session and shared it with non-profit undercover journalists Project Veritas. He stated, “I decided to come to project veritas because I oppose the indoctrination of children that they wanted to push.”

Johnson said the training session was mandatory, but Hasbro has said that the “diversity and inclusion” training was optional and only attended by “a small group of employees.” The webinar was led by Kate Ishizuka-Stephens of The Conscious Kid, an organization that claims to be “dedicated to equity and promoting healthy racial identity development in youth.” According to Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe and Johnson, The Conscious Kid organization has worked with Google, NFL, Nickelodeon, MGM, and YouTube.

The content given to Project Veritas shows one of the instructors of the training session saying, “by age three, children are already starting to apply stereotypes, and research shows that they also may use racist language intentionally at this age.”

The video continues, “white children can show pro-white bias by age five. At the age of five, children show many of the same racial attitudes held by adults – children are really sensitive to the status of different racial groups in our society and show a high-status bias towards white people, which is the socially privileged group in our society. White children show pro-white bias at this age.”

Hasbro has stated that Project Veritas “mischaracterized” the training and attempted to distance itself from the seminar’s content. Putting out a statement saying, “our mission is to create the world’s best play and entertainment experiences that connect children, fans and families around the world. We occasionally invite third-party speakers for optional sessions to discuss diverse viewpoints. As always the views expressed by external speakers are their own and do not reflect the views of the company.” David Johnson has since been suspended and lost access to all Hasbro work accounts.
