Google employees have reportedly created an internal document called “Anti-racism resources” that ties white supremacy to former President Donald Trump and his "Make America Great Again" movement, along with popular conservative commentator Ben Shapiro.

The revelations are relevant to the national debate over critical race theory, an ideology that encourages people to see themselves and others through the lens of race.

A Google diversity, equity, and inclusion leader created an internal company document that advances the idea in one graphic that Trump, Shapiro, and other conservatives are layers in a "white supremacy pyramid" that culminates in violence and mass murder, according to reporting by Christopher Rufo, a senior fellow at the conservative Manhattan Institute.

The internal document contains a disclaimer that it was “not legally reviewed” and, therefore, is not to be considered company policy, but it was hosted on Google's internal resources server and made available across the company.

Another graphic in the document claims that “colorblindness,” “[American] exceptionalism,” “Columbus Day,” and “Make America Great Again” are all expressions of “covert white supremacy.”

Google's diversity training team, along with a team of consultants, also created a race education program that includes video conversations with popular liberals who are scholars on race, such as 1619 Project editor Nikole Hannah-Jones and Boston University professor Ibram X. Kendi.

During one of the videos, Hannah-Jones concluded that all white people benefit from the "system of white supremacy," while Kendi claimed that all Americans are "raised to be racist."

When reached for comment by Rufo, Shapiro aggressively pushed back against the Google document's depiction of him and other conservatives.

“All it would take is one Google search to learn just how much white supremacists hate my work or how often I’ve spoken out against their benighted philosophy,” Shapiro said.

“The attempt to link everyone to the right of Hillary Clinton to white supremacism is disgusting, untrue, and malicious,” he added.
