Nation’s 2nd Largest Defense Contractor with Large NC Presence Pushes Critical Race Theory in Employee Training

RALEIGH – In yet another example of how deeply the cultural Marxism if Critical Race Theory (CRT) has penetrated, CRT watchdog Christopher Rufo has pulled back the curtain on totally Woke equity training at the nation’s second largest defense contractor.

Raytheon Technologies, which has several installations in North Carolina, has embraced the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion movement which preaches a focus on race and presupposes white supremacy and systemic racism.

Instead of focusing on the proper design of missiles and jet engines the employee training places Woke indoctrination at the center of their mission.

Join a local ‘white space’ – you couldn’t make this stuff up and expect anyone to believe you. And yet here it is, prominently promulgated by the US military-industrial complex.

Notably, Raytheon and its subsidiaries have a strong presence in North Carolina. One subsidiary, Collins Aerospace, is headquartered in Charlotte with additional sites in Winston-Salem. Another, Pratt & Whitney, is developing a $650 million/800 job turbine foil production facility in Buncombe County.

A current job search reveals Raytheon company positions offered in Charlotte, Raleigh, Winton-Salem, Wilson, and Monroe. The job descriptions don’t necessarily scream ‘Social Justice Warrior,’ but Rufo’s reporting makes it clear that is now a core ingredient in managing their human resources.

Obviously, companies can offer whatever diversity training they want, but the question remains: Do you think our defense contractors going Woke portends good things for our actual national defense? Do you think China and Russia view Equity and Inclusion training as a deterrent?
