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.
