Whistleblower Says Hasbro is Pushing Critical Race Theory on Employees through Seminars

On Monday, a whistleblower came forward to reveal that the toy company Hasbro is actively promoting the far-left Critical Race Theory in training seminars for employees, according to Fox News.

David Johnson was an employee with the IT recruitment and consulting firm Harvey Nash, which was working with Hasbro, when he was informed that the company would be holding a seminar on Critical Race Theory. Johnson recorded the seminar and shared the contents with the watchdog group Project Veritas before further explaining his findings on Sean Hannity’s primetime show.

One of the speakers during the event was Kate Ishizuka-Stephens, one of the co-founders of the far-left group Conscious Kids, a group focused on pushing Critical Race Theory – the debunked notion that all White people are automatically racist, and that the United States of America is an inherently evil nation – in education for young children. During her lecture, Stephens falsely claimed that “by 3 to 6 months, babies are beginning to notice and already express preference by race.”

“Research shows that they also may use racist language intentionally at this age,” Stephens further claimed, with no evidence. “White children at this age may report explicit or overt negative attitudes towards people of color.”

Johnson, who is a black man himself, said that he feared the company would subsequently attempt to promote this far-left ideology in the packaging and promotion of its newest products. As such, he recorded the seminar and shared it with Veritas and Fox News in order to warn parents about what their young children may be exposed to by Hasbro.

“CRT teaches people – and at Hasbro they wanted to teach children – to judge people based on race,” Johnson said in his Hannity interview. “And that’s not something that I feel that I think Dr. Martin Luther King would’ve supported.”

Johnson says that, as a result of his act of whistleblowing, he has been suspended from Harvey Nash and has lost access to all Hasbro-related work accounts, pending an investigation by his employer.
