Desantis ‘Stop WOKE Act’ Would Ban CRT Indoctrination in Workplace, Making it Civil Rights Violation
By Human Events Staff | December 20, 2021
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ proposed “Stop WOKE Act” would ban Critical Race Theory in workplace training, making it a violation of the Florida Civil Rights Act.
Unlike other state laws or proposals that just ban Critical Race Theory from being taught in schools, the new proposal allows parents to actually sue colleges, and employees to sue corporations, that teach it.
“We’re also not going to allow the staff or employees or teachers in our education system to be subjected to that type of training where they’re forced to sit there and listen,” he added. “This is wrong when it’s done to our kids, but it’s also wrong to force employees to have to go through that.”
DeSantis blasted the “woke ideology” that he claims is trying to change the meaning behind the Constitution.
“They want to tear at the fabric of our society and our culture,” he said. “They want to delegitimize the founding of the country and the Constitution.”
So far, no other state legislative plan or new law targets both public and private employers. DeSantis’ bill, however, seeks to help Florida employees who find themselves in a hostile work environment “created when large corporations force their employees to endure CRT-inspired ‘training’ and indoctrination,” he said.
Desantis’ office published a list of examples of Critical Race Theory being taught in the classroom and in corporations across the country, including Google and Bank of America Corp.
Google’s “antiracism” initiative includes materials that claim the U.S. is a “system of white supremacy” and all Americans are “raised to be racist.”
Bank of America’s racial reeducation program encourages its employees to become “woke at work,” specifically instructing white employees to “decolonize [their] mind” and “cede in power to people of color.”

Uuhhm I did not read the legislation, but I hope that it also impedes militant fascist activist to shove their hateful ideology where the sun never shines.
In my opinion which is worth nothing over the pond, these kind of things should cut both ways...
If not.... well it speaks for who you are.
Just because division and injustices are backed by the law does not make them right.
I noticed, that the reps start to sound just as whiny as the dems, good times ahead, hooray for dicotomies
Eric Hall, who DeSantis recently appointed to head Florida’s Department of Juvenile Justice, used critical race theory as the bedrock of his 2014 dissertation examining alternative schools. Hall, who finished the dissertation while completing his doctorate at the University of South Florida, wrote that critical race theory was a good “framework” to study racial inequities in the public education system.
Hall’s 272-page dissertation studied two “alternative” schools and how the public education system displaces minority students at higher rates through expulsion and other factors. In turn, that can lead to large numbers of minority students ending up in the “school-to-prison pipeline.”
He concludes, in part, that school curriculum is crafted in a way that specifically disadvantages minority students.
“Understanding this practice and the fact that ‘democratic choice is not necessarily available for all,’ CRT can help to shape the manner in which the top is explored while also exposing the bias maintained by the author of this inquiry, who is a middle-class, white male,” he wrote, citing a 1989 essay “White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack" by feminist Peggy McIntosh.
If Eric hall pushes that ideology as a curriculum in public schools , then yes i hope he does get sued.
Something that man wrote as part of his education should not affect his candidacy for a job
