Home Depot Employee Guide Unpacks Privilege, Check-Lists White, Male, Christians

'If you don’t have to explain that your spouse is of the same gender, you have heterosexual privilege... '

(Mark Pellin, Headline USA) Home Depot is getting hammered for an employee-training pamphlet that warned workers about the dangers of white privilege and check-listed male, Christian, cisgender, able-bodied and heterosexual workers for special concern.

The training leaflet, titled “Leading Practices: Unpacking privilege,” included the company’s logo and was posted in an employee lunchroom at a Home Depot in Calgary, Alberta, reported the Daily Mail.

The training guide provides a definition of “White Privilege” as “societal privilege that benefits white people beyond what is commonly experienced by people of color under the same social, political and economic circumstances.”

If someone doesn’t see white privilege everywhere, or at least somewhere, it’s because that person suffers from white privilege and is too blind to see it.

The Home Depot training guide shows employees where to look and how to ferret out privilege.

“If you’re confident that the police exist to protect you, you have white privilege,” one line reads, while another informs that “If you can expect time off from work to celebrate your religious holidays, you have Christian privilege.”

Another blurb warned that “If you can use public bathrooms without stares, fear or anxiety, you have cisgender privilege.”

“If you don’t have to explain that your spouse is of the same gender, you have heterosexual privilege,” the guide scolded.

Not to be outdone by a host of privilege, the Home Depot flyer also included woke wisdom on racism, racial prejudice and power.

The manual was roundly criticized and condemned as offensive and wholly misguided.

“Welcome to the commissariat at Home Depot,” tweeted Dr. Jordan Peterson. “How can our capitalist corporations be so blind to their own interests?

“The blowback is beginning when you hit the NY Post,” a tweet responded.

Atlanta’s Home Depot central command scrambled to quell the backlash and distance itself from the flyer.

While confirming to Fox Business that the pamphlet had been posted for employees in Canada, it said the messaging was not cleared by the upper-echelon of corporate.

“While we fully support diversity across our company, this material was not created or approved by our corporate diversity, equity and inclusion department,” a Home Depot media stooge warbled, apparently unaware of the irony that its DEI department was distancing itself from its favored brand of indoctrination.

“This was a resource in our Canadian division and not part of any required programming,” Home Depot said.
