Salvation Army Faces Backlash After Telling White Donors to “Repent” for their Skin Color


There’s an age old saying: Get woke go broke.

The Salvation Army are learning what that means the hard way as they face a wave of backlash over an “anti-racist” guide they released back in April.

The guide, “Let’s Talk About Racism,” is infected with woke CRT propaganda.

It calls on donors to face how they “consciously or unconsciously” have supported systems that are prejudice towards minorities.

The guide also asks white donors to “lament, repent and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and actions committed.”

Backlash has been so great that the Salvation Army has now removed the document completely.

However, it may be too late, as many are now swearing off ever donating to them again.

Fox News has more on the backlash against the Salvation Army:

The Salvation Army has removed a document from its website called "Let’s Talk About Race" after criticism over the racially charged language instructing white people and Christians to "evaluate" racist attitudes and practices.

"Elements of the recently issued ‘Let’s Talk About Racism’ guide led some to believe we think they should apologize for the color of their skin, or that The Salvation Army may have abandoned its Biblical beliefs for another philosophy or ideology," the Salvation Army posted on its website. "That was never our intention, so the guide has been removed for appropriate review."

Additionally, a link to the guide that had been originally posted in April was taken down from the Salvation Army website as of Tuesday.

The Salvation Army posted this response to those offended by its guide:

The damage may already be done though...

Tim Young, a columnist from the Washington Times, responded to the Salvation Army's "Let’s Talk About Race" guide by saying he will no longer support them.

Others joined suit.

The Blaze has more on the Salvation Army's "anti-racist" guide, which came out originally back in April:

This year, in addition to requesting monetary contribution towards the global mission, the organization is calling on donors to reckon with their deep-seated attitudes of racism, the National Review reports.

In a guidebook titled, "Let's Talk About Racism," the charity asks donors to consider the ways in which they have "consciously or unconsciously" supported prejudicial systems that inflict harm on racial minorities, adding that it "acknowledges with regret, that Salvationists have sometimes shared in the sins of racism and conformed to economic, organizational and social pressures that perpetuate racism."

Elsewhere in the document, the charity calls on white donors to "lament, repent and apologize for biases or racist ideologies held and actions committed."

Going forward, the Salvation Army says it hopes white donors will recognize their own contributions to racism and adopt "a posture of ... anti-racism," an ideological practice made popular by progressive author Ibram X. Kendi.

It's a sad day when an organization that is supposed to help people instead gives way to racist attacks.
