USDA Training: I have no words

Additional clips of a United States Department of Agriculture sensitivity training class feature USDA employees being told to recite, "If we work for a federal agency, we've discriminated in the past."

The clips, released by the conservative government accountability group Judicial Watch Thursday evening, are the second installation of revealing footage obtained by a Freedom of Information Act (FIOA) request the organization made last May.

According to Judicial Watch, the documents reveal the sensitivity training was delivered to USDA employees at least 16 times last year in an attempt to boost employees' "emotional intelligence."

In the additional clips, excerpted from the more than 3.5-hour "Cultural Sensitivity Training" session that was never intended to be publicized, diversity awareness trainer Samuel Betances of Souder, Betances and Associates advises further on the cultural sensitivity sins of America.

"I want you to say: 'If we work for a federal agency.' Say that. [Audience repeats] 'We have discriminated in the past.' [Audience repeats] Say: 'Every federal agency,' [Audience repeats] 'has discriminated against African Americans,' [Audience repeats] 'Hispanics,' [Audience repeats] 'Native American Indians,' [Audience repeats] 'and other groups' [Audience repeats]," Betances coaches.

"See, if you work for a federal agency, it doesn't matter if it's DOD, Commerce, Labor, Education, Housing, every agency has discriminated, because every agency reflects the values of the generation in charge," he adds.

Judicial Watch highlighted another clip in which Betances speaks about the Founding Fathers' use of Native Americans' system of government and nation symbol, the eagle.

"And so when our founding elders and our Founding Fathers said, 'We don't want King George. We want our George Washington to create a republic with tools of democracy,' our founding elders went to the Iroquois, native indigenous Americans in upstate New York, to borrow their system of governance. In fact, when I met with some of the Iroquois leadership some years ago, they say 'Dr. Betances, not only did the Founding Fathers take our way of governing, they also took our symbol of nationhood, the eagle, as their symbol of nation-state,'" he says in the clip.

Judicial Watch has reported that the USDA paid Betances and his firm $200,000 in 2011 and 2012. Their additional review of federal contracts at www.USASpending.gov revealed that over the last five years the federal government provided the firm over $3.31 million in contracts, with $2.8 million coming from the Department of Defense.

Footage of the United States Department of Agriculture's compulsory "Cultural Sensitivity Training" program reveals USDA employees being instructed to refer to the Pilgrims as "illegal aliens" and minorities as "emerging majorities" - at "a huge expense" to taxpayers.

The video clips were made public Thursday evening by the conservative government accountability group Judicial Watch, which obtained them through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request made on May 18, 2012.

The clips star Samuel Betances - a diversity instructor with Souder, Betances and Associates - who says in the video that he got his diversity training start under former Chicago Mayor Richard Daley. In the clips, Betances instructed USDA employees on the proper thinking about diversity and minorities - or, as he called them, "emerging majorities."

Between requiring the employees to repeat that "every federal agency has discriminated against African-Americans, Hispanics, Native American Indians and other groups," and a long account of his personal history, Betances encouraged the employees to take note because the presentation is "a huge expense."

"If you take a look at all of you here and you think about your salaries and your benefits and what you have left undone - plus my fee - plus the expense of the team that's putting the video together, this is a huge expense," he says in his video.

In another clip, Betances attempted to dispel the stigma of illegal immigrants by calling the Pilgrims illegal aliens.

"I want you to say that America was founded by outsiders - say that - who are today's insiders, who are very nervous about today's outsiders," he said in the clip.

"I want you to say, 'The Pilgrims were illegal aliens,'" he continued. "Say, 'The Pilgrims never gave their passports to the Indians.'"


Throughout the session, Betances had the employees shout "Bam!" to reinforce his points.

This is incredible, I can't believe this is our in-house training. Video footage in the links for the source deniers.
