Judicial Watch has released videos showing the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) holding required "Cultural Sensitivity Training" sessions created by diversity awareness trainer Samuel Betances - at a cost to taxpayers of $200,000.
"The sensitivity training sessions, described as 'a huge expense' by diversity awareness trainer and self-described 'citizen of the world' Samuel Betances, were held on USDA premises. The diversity event is apparently part of what USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack described in a memo sent to all agency employees as a 'new era of Civil Rights' and 'a broader effort towards cultural transformation at USDA.'
"In 2011 and 2012, the USDA paid Betances and his firm nearly $200,000 for their part in the "cultural transformation' program."Of course, "cultural sensitivity" sessions are more exercises in political correctness and implanting "white guilt."
Within the videos, Betances has the audience repeat after him in a brainwashing fashion. Among the chants repeated are:
In another clip, Betances states he doesn't like the word "minorities" and prefers "emerging majorities."
- "Thank you, black folks,"
- "The pilgrims were illegal aliens" and
- "The pilgrims never gave their passport to the Indians."
The obvious question is: why is the USDA holding "Cultural Sensitivity Training" sessions on "cultural transformation?"
