Whether you know it or not, your taxpayer dollars are funding “wokeness” run amok at American Express — and you have the power to turn the tide of this madness at their upcoming shareholder meeting.
There’s nothing American about viewing employees primarily by their race — but Un-American Express is doing exactly that.
Last August, Manhattan Institute fellow Christopher Rufo detailed the full embrace of woke doctrine at Un-American Express. Their “anti-racism” program actually perpetuates racism and inequality among their customers and employees. Among their policies:
- AmEx is tying executive bonuses to racial “equity,” managers are financially incentivized to hire minorities, even if they are less qualified.
- AmEx instituted critical race theory training, teaching staff that “capitalism is racist” and asking workers to rank themselves on a hierarchy of “privilege.”
- AmEx gave preferential contracts to suppliers just because the heads of those companies happen to be black.
All of these practices are possibly unconstitutional and illegal.
Even worse—your taxpayer dollars are funding this nonsense via mutual funds, index funds, and even direct investments made by state pension boards, who may not even be aware they’re directing taxpayer revenue to underwrite Un-American wokeness run wild.
But this isn’t a lost cause—far from it! In mere weeks, Un-American Express will convene a major investors meeting that could put an end to these racially divisive and damaging policies.
The time to contact your state pension board to demand they divest from Un-American Express! These kinds of policies will not only inspire more racial resentment, they put at risk taxpayers’ financial futures. They destroy the merit-based foundation of any successful company and replace it with racial division.
Send a message to your state pension board: their responsibility to taxpayers like you requires they divest from Un-American Express unless they reverse racially divisive policies!
