According to Fox Business, the New York Post, and other news outlets, American Express recently hosted Khalil Muhammad, the great grandson of the Nation of Islam's founder, who told employees at the critical race theory training program that capitalism is racist.
Investor Justin Danhof of the Free Enterprise Project at the National Center for Public Policy Research is one of the people Fox Business interviewed, and since that article was printed, he has received emails from current and former American Express employees who are not happy with the credit card company.
"Former American Express employees reached out to me to say that they had to quit because these trainings are even worse than what has been reported," relays Danhof. "One woman… said that if you are a straight Christian white individual, it is impossible to work for American Express because … the environment makes you feel so unwelcome that management hates your worldview; they hate everything about what you are."
Danhof would not be surprised if this results in lawsuits claiming a hostile work environment, and he is not alone in that line of thinking.
"I think what you're seeing at a lot of these companies has crossed the line to become downright illegal," Vivek Ramaswamy, author of "Woke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America's Social Justice Scam," recently told the "Fox & Friends" television program.
He went on to cite Title VII of the Civil Rights Act, which says people cannot be discriminated against on the basis of race.
"I think there's a good case that this could be actually racial discrimination in teaching people that they ought to pledge allegiance to this new religion," Ramaswamy continued. "You can't as an employer force your employees to bow down to this new woke religion any more than you can force them to bow down to any other religion."
American Express saw a $2.3 billion profit last quarter.
