Hasbro is a multinational children's toy manufacturing conglomerate headquartered in Pawtucket, Rhode Island with production facilities in the Peoples Republic of China.
A workers' rights group investigated several of Hasbro's Chinese suppliers and found a toy factory in China's Guangxi province hired 1000 junior high school students. It found widespread labor violations, including unsafe working conditions, mandatory overtime, verbal abuse and sexual harassment of employees. Hasbro responded by hiring independent auditors. Reports then emerged that the factory managers have been coached in how to fool the auditors.
Critical race theory
Hasbro partners with “Conscious Kids” to force Critical Race Theory (CRT) upon its employees during mandatory trainings. A whistleblower leaked a video to Project Veritas showing “Conscious Kids” co-founders Katie Ishizuka and Ramón Stephens lecturing Hasbro employees about infants’ inherent racism. On the video Ishizuka says:
- “By three to six months, babies are beginning to notice and already express preference by race.”
- “[Babies] as young as two are already using race to reason about people’s behaviors. We may see this play out in daycare or on the playground — and how kids are starting to choose or exclude playmates and friends.”
- “By age three, children are already starting to apply stereotypes, and research shows that they also may use racist language intentionally at this age. White children at this age may report explicit or overt negative attitudes towards people of color…By age four, kids are showing a strong and consistent pro-white, anti-black bias.”
- “At the age of five, children show many of the same racial attitudes held by adults — children are really sensitive to the status of different racial groups in our society and show a high-status bias towards white people, which is the socially privileged group in our society. White children show pro-white bias at this age.”
