Chicago County White Employees Mandated to Take ‘Racial Equity’ Re-Education Program

White employees of Chicago’s Cook County will now be required to take a new “racial equity” re-education curriculum mandated by Board President Toni Preckwinkle. The curriculum, obtained by Chicago City Wire, reports the White employees “will be required to acknowledge they are racist, that they behave in a biased way towards blacks and are responsible for blacks having lower average incomes than whites.”

The curriculum is part of Preckwinkle’s push towards “embedding racial equity into local government.” She announced the new policy via executive order on September 7, and it took effect beginning September 13.

Employees are required to take the “Racial Equity 101” and “Racial Equity 102” and be instructed in “racial equity basics” by so-called “expert” trainers, all funded by the taxpayers. The “policy of ‘racial equity’ calls for favoring black employees and contractors over white ones in pursuit of equality of outcome by racial group.”

Chicago City Wire reports “Module 1” assesses which employees have adequate “emotional intelligence… to be able to recognize their invisible biases in personal and professional lives towards people with protected class identities,” a workshop outline explains.
“Outcome: recognize how bias impacts (your) daily behavioral decisions.”

Additionally, the Objectives states: “build on self-awareness, reflection and identity,” the outline reads. “What is bias? What are the implications of bias? What formed your biases? Which biases are good and which are harmful?”

Preckwinkle argues that discrimination against whites is necessary to combat income differences in Cook County that have resulted from “public policies that led to patterns of exclusion” and have prevented residents from “full inclusion…in the economic, social and political life of Cook County.”

According to the policy “Racial equity is essential for national, regional and local prosperity.” Also, “Equity and inclusion is more than just the right thing to do; It is an absolute economic imperative.”

“Racial equity’ is the condition that would be achieved if race one’s racial identity no longer predicted, in a statistical sense, how one fares” the policy states.
