Hasbro is about to get woke, go broke.
Hasbro worker claimed the company is attempting to teach children critical race theory through its products in an interview with the far-right activist group Project Veritas.
David Johnson, a packaging engineer who had been temporarily contracted to work with Hasbro for several weeks, claimed the company is working with the nonprofit organization The Conscious Kid to give Hasbro employees “critical race theory” training.
According to its website, The Conscious Kid is “an education, research, and policy organization dedicated to equity and promoting healthy racial identity development in youth.” The organization offers support in “taking action to disrupt racism in kids.”
The Conscious Kid’s website offers resources, book lists and a special section dedicated to AAPI stories for adults to reference while teaching children about race.
Johnson spoke with Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe in an interview that was posted on YouTube. In the interview, Johnson rejected the idea that children should be taught about race at a young age, calling it “absurd.”
“I think it’s absurd to just state as fact that at two years old, that children are going to be racist, and using race to reason about who they’re going to play with, and discriminating based on,” Johnson said.
