Unlike Critical Race Theory, CCC’s training assumes humans are not inherently prejudiced and will bring peace between races
Tampa, FL – As the U.S. continues to grapple with racial tension in cities, Conservative Clergy of Color is offering its new employee training program, “Getting to All Lives Matter,” as an alternative for employees to the biased, politically correct Critical Race Theory (CRT) that has been adopted in workplaces and schools across the country. Critical Race Theory argues that White Americans are implicitly biased, inherently racist, and fragile. The Black Lives Matter-fueled riots that have gripped America’s cities have caused large corporations, universities, and even Federal agencies to adopt CRT in an effort to conform to the BLM narrative that America is an inherently racist country.
“Our hope through this training is that we can bring people together. As ministers it’s our calling to build unity in the Christian way, and we feel that, given the racial climate in our country, there needs to be unity in the workplace. Critical Race Theory is not a unifying philosophy,” said CCC founder Bishop Aubrey Shines.
“Getting to All Lives Matter” is an easy, one-day training program that consists of six modules. Unlike CRT or similar ideas found in “The 1619 Project,” “Getting to All Lives Matter” is based on facts, real history, and dispenses with the “White Fragility” blame-game approach. The modules provide employees at all levels with the tools and resources to address the incredibly difficult topic of race and how to reach a constructive understanding. The modules are as follows:
- The All Lives Matter Approach Means Stronger Teams
- How We Get Race Wrong
- Don’t Take the Bait to Hate
- Fact-Based Talk on Equity And Opportunity
- What’s Working, What Didn’t, and What Should Be Tried
- Focused Minds and Open Hearts
The “Getting to All Lives Matter” modules argue that White people are not hopelessly and inherently racist even when they aren’t trying, and that many workplace confrontations involving race are often fueled by a lack of understanding. The modules examine Americans’ common history, and explore the actual state of race relations without the rhetoric in the current discourse. The modules tackle the agendas of organizations like BLM, how to take in information from the media without getting lost in click-baiting, and how to reduce inequality without assigning blame. Trainees will also practice these ideas in real-world scenarios to create tolerant environments in their offices and help employees reach an understanding.
All of this is designed to build teamwork in the office. The modules are designed to build common ground on the fundamental issue of race, which translates into solving regular workplace problems and collaborating on projects. By building trust between coworkers on a personal level, an office can expect stronger productivity and more soundly achieve its business goals.
“We want to be healers. We want people to understand that they have value and that their opinion has value,” Bishop Shines said. “Businesses don’t thrive on conflict, and by creating understanding in the workplace we hope to help the country begin the healing process and to reach reconciliation outside of the workplace.”
