Despite the acquittal and evidence supporting self-defense for teenager Kyle Rittenhouse, some large companies are using it to further a “racial trauma” narrative. Giant companies Best Buy and Levi Strauss “reportedly offered their employees counseling to those distressed over the verdict” reports Breitbart News.
Levi’s offered a session with a “racial trauma specialist” for workers distraught over the acquittal of Rittenhouse. Rittenhouse, who is white, was found not guilty in the shooting of three men, all of whom are also white because he was defending himself against the assailants. Nonetheless, the media and now businesses have turned the trial into a race-baiting issue.
The chief of diversity, equity and inclusion for Levi’s, Elizabeth Morrison, sent an email to employees of the San Francisco-based clothing company following the verdict:
“With the news that Kyle Rittenhouse was not convicted in the shooting of three individuals — two of whom lost their lives — during racial justice protests last year, this is a difficult day for many,” the email read.
“To help promote safety, sharing and to encourage healing, I’ll be hosting a fireside chat and Q&A with Dr. Jamila Codrington, a licensed psychologist and racial trauma specialist in early December,” the email stated. “Dr. J and I will talk about the mental and psychical impacts of back-to-back social and racial justice events and trauma coping mechanisms during our discussion.”
Best Buy has reportedly offered “mental health resources” and “counseling services” to employees distressed by the verdict. “The verdict in Kyle Rittenhouse’s trial stirs many emotions, and it’s another difficult moment for our nation,” reportedly wrote Mark Irvin, the chief inclusion, diversity, and talent officer for Best Buy.
“While these events can be challenging and deeply hurtful, I hope you will take a moment to reflect on the values that unite us as a company and as a nation,” Irvin said, according to The Post Millennial. “We can do better, as each of us as individuals, allies, and human beings press together for better outcomes.”
“I know events like these can take a toll on mental health and emotional well-being,” he stated. “Please know that Best Buy is here to support you.”
Irvin then provided links to “mental health resources” and “counseling services” that are offered by the company’s employee benefits.
