Cigna Practices Anti-White Racism To Avoid Hiring White Males

"Employees at one of the nation's largest health insurance providers are routinely subjected to far-left critical race theory lessons and asked not to consider white men in hiring decisions, according to leaked documents and chat logs obtained by the Washington Examiner.

Those who work at Cigna told the Washington Examiner that they are expected to undergo sensitivity training they consider racist and discriminatory. Lessons include reviews of concepts such as " white privilege," "gender privilege," and something called "religious privilege," which is described as "a set of advantages that benefits believers of a certain religion but not people who practice other religions or no religions at all."

The company recommends employees learn more about racism by reading controversial books such as White Fragility by Robin DiAngelo and How To Be An Anti-Racist by Ibram X. Kendi. The book list also includes two works by accused left-wing terrorist Angela Davis, Policing the Black Man and Are Prisons Obsolete? Davis was arrested in 1970 on kidnapping and murder charges following a deadly attack on the Marin County Civic Center.

The lessons learned from the sensitivity training seminars, some employees allege, have even extended to the hiring process.

Thousands of companies openly consider diversity when giving promotions or hiring new talent, but Cigna's practices go a step further.

Chat logs between an employee and a hiring manager viewed by the Washington Examiner detail an incident where a minority candidate with strong credentials performed exceptionally well in an interview. When that employee suggested to the hiring manager that the company wave the candidate through to the next step in the process, the hiring manager dismissed the candidate under the assumption he was white.

After learning that the candidate belonged to a minority group, the manager said she was excited to hire him, despite learning virtually nothing else about his background.

"Given the hiring practices they have in place where white, male candidates are blocked, regardless of qualifications, I have to say, 'Yes, there's obvious discrimination at this company,'" one employee told the Washington Examiner.

Another time, an employee suggested a candidate with years of industry experience. That employee was informed by the hiring manager that the candidate, a white man, could not be interviewed because he didn't meet the diversity criteria."

    Are people so bored they must sit around and think up this 'crap'. Why don't they solve human problems, like child abuse, human trafficking, etc.?

    Wonder how they would categorize me? American Indian (dad) and Ashkenasi (mom)? Granted my skin is white? Does this mean I am racist? Places I worked always just simply shook their heads. I got assigned to employee committees like Salary Committee...HR Committee, etc. I did write the Ethics Ordinance for my city when I was on the Council but one joker said it was because I was the only one who could spell ethics.

    I wonder how long this crap is going to last. I'm retired and no longer in the job market, but wonder if I may eventually be denied medical or other services or placed on long waiting lists for anything because I'm a white male. The old Jim Crow didn't work out well, this new one won't either I suspect.

    Another aspect of this is as the bar for quality in hiring is lowered to cast a wider net for "diverse candidates", then the quality of goods and services will also get lower as well as the point of failure.

      The prospect for American competitiveness is dismal.

        Very much so and getting worse.

        I've come to appreciate the Dow Jones so called "Industrial Average" is now just a feel good smoke screen to hide that very fact. A bunch of global banks and financial institutions profiting off debt and fiat currency is hardly a representation of "industrial" anything in America.

        Oh wait! By market cap Apple is at the top of the list and isn't a financial institution. However, most of its products are made in China or elsewhere and are not representative of anything "American", either.

        But wait again! The smoke screen gets even worse! The latest compilation of the "Dow Jones Industrial Average" are companies listed on the NYSE and don't have to be wholly "American".

        Bottom line: The widely quoted DJIA, IMHO, is a very poor (at best) indicator of American economic status.

          When a firm has poor results they are removed from the DJIA, so it is guaranteed to go up except in a very wide recession. Those are now not allowed to happen - the fed supports the share prices (buys) whatever companies that support the Deep State so they are zombies - dead companies still walking around looting the productive and healthy.

    Remind me never to be employed by Cigna. This is why I am self employed. I would be fired on the spot if mandated to attend a "sensitivity" class.
