USDA Cultural Sensitivity Training Program Redefines “Minorities” as “Emerging Majorities”


No 1984 to see here. This is the “new era of civil rights”. It’s a wonderful phenomenon best illustrated by this new cultural sensitivity training program at the USDA which has become a huge wealth redistribution operation.

Judicial Watch today released previously unseen USDA videos revealing a compulsory “Cultural Sensitivity Training” program requiring USDA employees to bang on tables, chanting in unison “The pilgrims were illegal aliens” while being instructed to no longer use the word “minorities,” but to replace it with “emerging majorities.

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.

Who exactly is Samuel Betances?

His bio mentions that he’s been everywhere and done everything, but fails to give specifics as to his background. He operates out of Chicago, which probably tells us all we need to know.

Betances is apparently a Puerto Rican from Harlem and who was a Sociology professor at Northeastern Illinois University. He’s backing away from those specific credentials to describe himself as a multiracial citizen of the world. Because you can never be too diverse.

    Presumably those muslim Arab raiding parties who abducted Africans from their villages and sold them at the ports are now “Emerging-majority facilitators”.

      Now you're qualified to run your own cultural transformation seminar.

        Thanks. Better still, "human wealth re-distributors".

    Clearly the federal government employees must be the front-line propagandist's and manipulator's of the culture being designed by the self-appointed, leftwing aristocracy to end and eventually exterminate the white race as it is seen as being the only race in human history (by the leftists) to be warmongering, land grabbing, slave-owning, resource destroying, discriminatory, hate-filled, greedy slime. All other races and cultures of non-white's are superior to the white race and the Judeo-Christian culture it has established and so must they must take center stage until the victory of extermination is completed.

    Wow, the schools in Harlem (or maybe this guy's parents) really have the purple koolaid going for a long time now then, eh?

    "He operates out of Chicago, which probably tells us all we need to know." Say no more!

    Emerging majority – that sounds exactly like what latino polical leadership has planned for latinos in the US. Because you really can't have too many unstable narco states and banana republics in the Western Hemisphere!

    I believe I have some new info on this topic, with regard to other government agencies and the background of Dr. Betances’ company:

    I have heard this, character, is getting paid $200,000 for this travesty. The more I hear 0 whine about the perils and pitfalls of the sequestration cuts, all I can is "cut baby, cut!" Yet another example of how two thirds, three quarters (?), of the federal bureaucracy can be disposed of today and nobody, nobody will notice tomorrow. Except we will be keeping more of our paychecks.

    This country is beyond saving. We are doomed.

    I wonder if this guy is related to the 19th century radical from Puerto Rico and Haiti Ramon Betances
