By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Federal Property and Administrative Services Act, 40 U.S.C. 101 et seq., and in order to promote economy and efficiency in Federal contracting, to promote unity in the Federal workforce, and to combat offensive and anti-American race and sex stereotyping and scapegoating, it is hereby ordered as follows:
Section 1. Purpose. From the battlefield of Gettysburg to the bus boycott in Montgomery and the Selma-to-Montgomery marches, heroic Americans have valiantly risked their lives to ensure that their children would grow up in a Nation living out its creed, expressed in the Declaration of Independence: “We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.” It was this belief in the inherent equality of every individual that inspired the Founding generation to risk their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor to establish a new Nation, unique among the countries of the world. President Abraham Lincoln understood that this belief is “the electric cord” that “links the hearts of patriotic and liberty-loving” people, no matter their race or country of origin. It is the belief that inspired the heroic black soldiers of the 54th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment to defend that same Union at great cost in the Civil War. And it is what inspired Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., to dream that his children would one day “not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character.”
Thanks to the courage and sacrifice of our forebears, America has made significant progress toward realization of our national creed, particularly in the 57 years since Dr. King shared his dream with the country.
Today, however, many people are pushing a different vision of America that is grounded in hierarchies based on collective social and political identities rather than in the inherent and equal dignity of every person as an individual. This ideology is rooted in the pernicious and false belief that America is an irredeemably racist and sexist country; that some people, simply on account of their race or sex, are oppressors; and that racial and sexual identities are more important than our common status as human beings and Americans.
This destructive ideology is grounded in misrepresentations of our country’s history and its role in the world. Although presented as new and revolutionary, they resurrect the discredited notions of the nineteenth century’s apologists for slavery who, like President Lincoln’s rival Stephen A. Douglas, maintained that our government “was made on the white basis” “by white men, for the benefit of white men.” Our Founding documents rejected these racialized views of America, which were soundly defeated on the blood-stained battlefields of the Civil War. Yet they are now being repackaged and sold as cutting-edge insights. They are designed to divide us and to prevent us from uniting as one people in pursuit of one common destiny for our great country.
Unfortunately, this malign ideology is now migrating from the fringes of American society and threatens to infect core institutions of our country. Instructors and materials teaching that men and members of certain races, as well as our most venerable institutions, are inherently sexist and racist are appearing in workplace diversity trainings across the country, even in components of the Federal Government and among Federal contractors. For example, the Department of the Treasury recently held a seminar that promoted arguments that “virtually all White people, regardless of how ‘woke’ they are, contribute to racism,” and that instructed small group leaders to encourage employees to avoid “narratives” that Americans should “be more color-blind” or “let people’s skills and personalities be what differentiates them.”
Training materials from Argonne National Laboratories, a Federal entity, stated that racism “is interwoven into every fabric of America” and described statements like “color blindness” and the “meritocracy” as “actions of bias.”
Materials from Sandia National Laboratories, also a Federal entity, for non-minority males stated that an emphasis on “rationality over emotionality” was a characteristic of “white male[s],” and asked those present to “acknowledge” their “privilege” to each other.
A Smithsonian Institution museum graphic recently claimed that concepts like “[o]bjective, rational linear thinking,” “[h]ard work” being “the key to success,” the “nuclear family,” and belief in a single god are not values that unite Americans of all races but are instead “aspects and assumptions of whiteness.” The museum also stated that “[f]acing your whiteness is hard and can result in feelings of guilt, sadness, confusion, defensiveness, or fear.”
All of this is contrary to the fundamental premises underpinning our Republic: that all individuals are created equal and should be allowed an equal opportunity under the law to pursue happiness and prosper based on individual merit.
Executive departments and agencies (agencies), our Uniformed Services, Federal contractors, and Federal grant recipients should, of course, continue to foster environments devoid of hostility grounded in race, sex, and other federally protected characteristics. Training employees to create an inclusive workplace is appropriate and beneficial. The Federal Government is, and must always be, committed to the fair and equal treatment of all individuals before the law.
But training like that discussed above perpetuates racial stereotypes and division and can use subtle coercive pressure to ensure conformity of viewpoint. Such ideas may be fashionable in the academy, but they have no place in programs and activities supported by Federal taxpayer dollars. Research also suggests that blame-focused diversity training reinforces biases and decreases opportunities for minorities.
Our Federal civil service system is based on merit principles. These principles, codified at 5 U.S.C. 2301, call for all employees to “receive fair and equitable treatment in all aspects of personnel management without regard to” race or sex “and with proper regard for their . . . constitutional rights.” Instructing Federal employees that treating individuals on the basis of individual merit is racist or sexist directly undermines our Merit System Principles and impairs the efficiency of the Federal service. Similarly, our Uniformed Services should not teach our heroic men and women in uniform the lie that the country for which they are willing to die is fundamentally racist. Such teachings could directly threaten the cohesion and effectiveness of our Uniformed Services.
Such activities also promote division and inefficiency when carried out by Federal contractors. The Federal Government has long prohibited Federal contractors from engaging in race or sex discrimination and required contractors to take affirmative action to ensure that such discrimination does not occur. The participation of contractors’ employees in training that promotes race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating similarly undermines efficiency in Federal contracting. Such requirements promote divisiveness in the workplace and distract from the pursuit of excellence and collaborative achievements in public administration.
Therefore, it shall be the policy of the United States not to promote race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating in the Federal workforce or in the Uniformed Services, and not to allow grant funds to be used for these purposes. In addition, Federal contractors will not be permitted to inculcate such views in their employees.
Sec. 2. Definitions. For the purposes of this order, the phrase:
(a) “Divisive concepts” means the concepts that (1) one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex; (2) the United States is fundamentally racist or sexist; (3) an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously; (4) an individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment solely or partly because of his or her race or sex; (5) members of one race or sex cannot and should not attempt to treat others without respect to race or sex; (6) an individual’s moral character is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex; (7) an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex; (8) any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race or sex; or (9) meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic are racist or sexist, or were created by a particular race to oppress another race. The term “divisive concepts” also includes any other form of race or sex stereotyping or any other form of race or sex scapegoating.
(b) “Race or sex stereotyping” means ascribing character traits, values, moral and ethical codes, privileges, status, or beliefs to a race or sex, or to an individual because of his or her race or sex.
(c) “Race or sex scapegoating” means assigning fault, blame, or bias to a race or sex, or to members of a race or sex because of their race or sex. It similarly encompasses any claim that, consciously or unconsciously, and by virtue of his or her race or sex, members of any race are inherently racist or are inherently inclined to oppress others, or that members of a sex are inherently sexist or inclined to oppress others.

Sec. 3. Requirements for the United States Uniformed Services. The United States Uniformed Services, including the United States Armed Forces, shall not teach, instruct, or train any member of the United States Uniformed Services, whether serving on active duty, serving on reserve duty, attending a military service academy, or attending courses conducted by a military department pursuant to a Reserve Officer Corps Training program, to believe any of the divisive concepts set forth in section 2(a) of this order. No member of the United States Uniformed Services shall face any penalty or discrimination on account of his or her refusal to support, believe, endorse, embrace, confess, act upon, or otherwise assent to these concepts.
Sec. 4. Requirements for Government Contractors. (a) Except in contracts exempted in the manner provided by section 204 of Executive Order 11246 of September 24, 1965 (Equal Employment Opportunity), as amended, all Government contracting agencies shall include in every Government contract hereafter entered into the following provisions:
“During the performance of this contract, the contractor agrees as follows:
1. The contractor shall not use any workplace training that inculcates in its employees any form of race or sex stereotyping or any form of race or sex scapegoating, including the concepts that (a) one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex; (b) an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously; (c) an individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment solely or partly because of his or her race or sex; (d) members of one race or sex cannot and should not attempt to treat others without respect to race or sex; (e) an individual’s moral character is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex; (f) an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex; (g) any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race or sex; or (h) meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic are racist or sexist, or were created by a particular race to oppress another race. The term “race or sex stereotyping” means ascribing character traits, values, moral and ethical codes, privileges, status, or beliefs to a race or sex, or to an individual because of his or her race or sex, and the term “race or sex scapegoating” means assigning fault, blame, or bias to a race or sex, or to members of a race or sex because of their race or sex.
2. The contractor will send to each labor union or representative of workers with which he has a collective bargaining agreement or other contract or understanding, a notice, to be provided by the agency contracting officer, advising the labor union or workers’ representative of the contractor’s commitments under the Executive Order of September 22, 2020, entitled Combating Race and Sex Stereotyping, and shall post copies of the notice in conspicuous places available to employees and applicants for employment.
3. In the event of the contractor’s noncompliance with the requirements of paragraphs (1), (2), and (4), or with any rules, regulations, or orders that may be promulgated in accordance with the Executive Order of September 22, 2020, this contract may be canceled, terminated, or suspended in whole or in part and the contractor may be declared ineligible for further Government contracts in accordance with procedures authorized in Executive Order 11246, and such other sanctions may be imposed and remedies invoked as provided by any rules, regulations, or orders the Secretary of Labor has issued or adopted pursuant to Executive Order 11246, including subpart D of that order.
4. The contractor will include the provisions of paragraphs (1) through (4) in every subcontract or purchase order unless exempted by rules, regulations, or orders of the Secretary of Labor, so that such provisions will be binding upon each subcontractor or vendor. The contractor will take such action with respect to any subcontract or purchase order as may be directed by the Secretary of Labor as a means of enforcing such provisions including sanctions for noncompliance: Provided, however, that in the event the contractor becomes involved in, or is threatened with, litigation with a subcontractor or vendor as a result of such direction, the contractor may request the United States to enter into such litigation to protect the interests of the United States.”
(b) The Department of Labor is directed, through the Office of Federal Contract Compliance Programs (OFCCP), to establish a hotline and investigate complaints received under both this order as well as Executive Order 11246 alleging that a Federal contractor is utilizing such training programs in violation of the contractor’s obligations under those orders. The Department shall take appropriate enforcement action and provide remedial relief, as appropriate.
(c) Within 30 days of the date of this order, the Director of OFCCP shall publish in the Federal Register a request for information seeking information from Federal contractors, Federal subcontractors, and employees of Federal contractors and subcontractors regarding the training, workshops, or similar programming provided to employees. The request for information should request copies of any training, workshop, or similar programing having to do with diversity and inclusion as well as information about the duration, frequency, and expense of such activities.
Sec. 5. Requirements for Federal Grants. The heads of all agencies shall review their respective grant programs and identify programs for which the agency may, as a condition of receiving such a grant, require the recipient to certify that it will not use Federal funds to promote the concepts that (a) one race or sex is inherently superior to another race or sex; (b) an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, is inherently racist, sexist, or oppressive, whether consciously or unconsciously; (c) an individual should be discriminated against or receive adverse treatment solely or partly because of his or her race or sex; (d) members of one race or sex cannot and should not attempt to treat others without respect to race or sex; (e) an individual’s moral character is necessarily determined by his or her race or sex; (f) an individual, by virtue of his or her race or sex, bears responsibility for actions committed in the past by other members of the same race or sex; (g) any individual should feel discomfort, guilt, anguish, or any other form of psychological distress on account of his or her race or sex; or (h) meritocracy or traits such as a hard work ethic are racist or sexist, or were created by a particular race to oppress another race. Within 60 days of the date of this order, the heads of agencies shall each submit a report to the Director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) that lists all grant programs so identified.
Sec. 6. Requirements for Agencies. (a) The fair and equal treatment of individuals is an inviolable principle that must be maintained in the Federal workplace. Agencies should continue all training that will foster a workplace that is respectful of all employees. Accordingly:
(i) The head of each agency shall use his or her authority under 5 U.S.C. 301, 302, and 4103 to ensure that the agency, agency employees while on duty status, and any contractors hired by the agency to provide training, workshops, forums, or similar programming (for purposes of this section, “training”) to agency employees do not teach, advocate, act upon, or promote in any training to agency employees any of the divisive concepts listed in section 2(a) of this order. Agencies may consult with the Office of Personnel Management (OPM), pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 4116, in carrying out this provision; and
(ii) Agency diversity and inclusion efforts shall, first and foremost, encourage agency employees not to judge each other by their color, race, ethnicity, sex, or any other characteristic protected by Federal law.
(b) The Director of OPM shall propose regulations providing that agency officials with supervisory authority over a supervisor or an employee with responsibility for promoting diversity and inclusion, if such supervisor or employee either authorizes or approves training that promotes the divisive concepts set forth in section 2(a) of this order, shall take appropriate steps to pursue a performance-based adverse action proceeding against such supervisor or employee under chapter 43 or 75 of title 5, United States Code.
(c) Each agency head shall:
(i) issue an order incorporating the requirements of this order into agency operations, including by making compliance with this order a provision in all agency contracts for diversity training;
(ii) request that the agency inspector general thoroughly review and assess by the end of the calendar year, and not less than annually thereafter, agency compliance with the requirements of this order in the form of a report submitted to OMB; and
(iii) assign at least one senior political appointee responsibility for ensuring compliance with the requirements of this order.
Sec. 7. OMB and OPM Review of Agency Training. (a) Consistent with OPM’s authority under 5 U.S.C. 4115-4118, all training programs for agency employees relating to diversity or inclusion shall, before being used, be reviewed by OPM for compliance with the requirements of section 6 of this order.
(b) If a contractor provides a training for agency employees relating to diversity or inclusion that teaches, advocates, or promotes the divisive concepts set forth in section 2(a) of this order, and such action is in violation of the applicable contract, the agency that contracted for such training shall evaluate whether to pursue debarment of that contractor, consistent with applicable law and regulations, and in consultation with the Interagency Suspension and Debarment Committee.
(c) Within 90 days of the date of this order, each agency shall report to OMB all spending in Fiscal Year 2020 on Federal employee training programs relating to diversity or inclusion, whether conducted internally or by contractors. Such report shall, in addition to providing aggregate totals, delineate awards to each individual contractor.
(d) The Directors of OMB and OPM may jointly issue guidance and directives pertaining to agency obligations under, and ensuring compliance with, this order.
Sec. 8. Title VII Guidance. The Attorney General should continue to assess the extent to which workplace training that teaches the divisive concepts set forth in section 2(a) of this order may contribute to a hostile work environment and give rise to potential liability under Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, 42 U.S.C. 2000e et seq. If appropriate, the Attorney General and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission shall issue publicly available guidance to assist employers in better promoting diversity and inclusive workplaces consistent with Title VII.
Sec. 9. Effective Date. This order is effective immediately, except that the requirements of section 4 of this order shall apply to contracts entered into 60 days after the date of this order.
Sec. 10. General Provisions. (a) This order does not prevent agencies, the United States Uniformed Services, or contractors from promoting racial, cultural, or ethnic diversity or inclusiveness, provided such efforts are consistent with the requirements of this order.
(b) Nothing in this order shall be construed to prohibit discussing, as part of a larger course of academic instruction, the divisive concepts listed in section 2(a) of this order in an objective manner and without endorsement.
(c) If any provision of this order, or the application of any provision to any person or circumstance, is held to be invalid, the remainder of this order and the application of its provisions to any other persons or circumstances shall not be affected thereby.
(d) Nothing in this order shall be construed to impair or otherwise affect:
(i) the authority granted by law to an executive department, agency, or the head thereof; or
(ii) the functions of the Director of the Office of Management and Budget relating to budgetary, administrative, or legislative proposals.
(e) This order shall be implemented consistent with applicable law and subject to the availability of appropriations.

DONALD J. TRUMP
THE WHITE HOUSE,
September 22, 2020.
GeraldtheGnome: Fractured, if I use the modern convenient far left winged concept well beyond even those of the most extreme far left have never dared to. We are all Blacks, I don't mean the Kiwi Football that got their Arses kicked by the Pumas, but we (everyone of with White, Black and other coloured skin) are Blacks. Since we all are Black by that definition should we all get reparations, I mean after all it would be great if you, me and everyone else got the most expensive House and Land deals we can get, we can drive around in some very expensive Cars, expensive Clothes, buy expensive food, have free health care including dental care, drinks (including expensive Alcohol) and Holidays all for free, all because we are Black. That is what the kind of reparations might be, after all we live in a World where most of whatever the far left wants the far left ends up getting.
Now to Dashaw with his bit about White privilege Mythology, Blacks deserve reparations, Black Lives Matter rubbish and so on, as well as if all lives matter then why is it that Blacks are treated differently than Whites by Gramma. Well apart from all of that being racist stuff lets get to the crux of it all. Are all Whites privileged ? In what way are the accused privileged ? Why do Blacks deserve reparations ? Do all Blacks deserve them ? What type of reparations should be brought about according to you and how ? Will this cost any one or that of x amount of People and if so how should it be paid for and when should it be paid for ? Of course taking funding away from the Police will be the best thing to do. It's not like things will get worse if Police don't get paid and they can't afford to do anything. In what way is it assumed that if all lives matter then how come Blacks aren't treated the same as Whites ? Does that mean all blacks and by all White People with the exclusion of the 'we are perfect and without any faults' far left wingers ? How is Black lives matter not divisive, exclusive and racist as opposed to all innocent lives matter ? All lives don't matter, those that think that all lives matter are Amnesty fans or a part of that ridiculous organization or just mistaken to think that way.
The far left rent a cause People are abundant in the world right now, they are too similar to the far right but are too easily offended by that just as their far right opponents, then again both those of the far left and far right are too easily offended. I don't like putting Ads on here and I'm not putting it on for the Ad side of it, but if it is taken off then I hope it's only for it being an Ad and for no other reason. So if it's allowed to stay on the below here is the Ad about the too easily offended and the rent a cause types especially the far left Whites that think that White People aside from them or them included OWE anyone from any minority and that collective guilt should be present so we should all kiss Arse and go 'sorry' . I hate crawling to anyone. Before someone tells me 'but she's not White' , tell me something I don't know instead.

Fractured fairy tale: yeah Dude none of us are white , If any one was they would have to be the Color of this Forum thingy the words are printed on , Its all false narrative as far as Im concered to devide people
I know Im not , I shall be at the Bank at 10am
GeraldtheGnome: I was making a joke about this Black by default crap that is around now, you know, where if you had a Black Ancestor or suspected that you had a Black Ancestor then you are Black. It's funny how People that have one Black Parent or Ancestor and at least one White Parent or Ancestor yet that one is White in appearance and other looks claims to be Black. I wish I can tell you that I've heard of cases where this is so but I can't. I can't because very recently my Uncle, my two BLONDE haired Cousins and two Black haired Cousins, all White as White can be are classified as Black. One of them attempted to get free House and Land from the Australian Aboriginal Board and was knocked back, meanwhile his Dad, my Uncle got FREE Health Care all because of the suspicion or the showing there of that they had a Black Ancestor.
Anyway due to that racist crap I don't care if I never have anything to do with them ever again, I most likely will but I'll think less of them for exploiting and attempted to exploit a racist system that is Australian Government allowed. I won't treat them the same again, for the reason that they are 'Black' , so Gramma in a sense was right that White People don't treat 'Blacks' in the same way. I won't be surprised if the claim that they have a Black Ancestor that was a Grandparent or Great Grandparent ends up being wrong. I wonder if the 'Mob' are having a Corroboree right now ? They have a lot of Kangaroos in the Yard. Will they eat them ?
For all of those that jump to conclusions that I don't want anything to do with anyone who is Black, think again, I prefer not have anything to do with People that are White skinned and half cast or suspect that they have a Black Ancestor yet have White skin while claiming to be Black.
Fractured fairy tale: Nah never heard of that stuff
Yeah Im over it Too the ofended by everything and everything is racist Syndrome , I donno where its all come from But I susspect its more of a American thing than it is here
hopefully it dies out soon , that Ansestry,com craze they used to always plug didn"t help either
Last thing i would be doing is sending my DNA to any one
Fractured fairy tale: Yeah Gerald your Right the Computer age 24 hour news cycles what ever drives it , or causes it
people just jump to Conclusions Like the George floyd all the others , Its just Straight away
Raceism clear cut Case closed striaght away , Led by the leaders in the media
GeraldtheGnome: The cruel bit about it all is that another Cousin of mine that I recently found out got a collapsed Lung and was in Hospital recently (if not there now) is having to pay for all of her medical costs for her various medical problems. But then again I guess that makes her more privileged than any Black Person and of course all White People that are as homeless as any Black Person are by default more privileged than all Black People according to the Black far left and the White far left. In reality I can tell you that Oprah is in a far more privileged position than that of me, some other Whites and some Black People are.
I keep looking for Videos I remember that most likely are absent on the net due to political correctness and due to the far left filters on the Net. One if a a Muslim Woman in a Burkha that goes to a Topless only Beach so she rips off the Breasts part of her Burkha and lets her Tits hang out, the other is where Jimeoin remember that when he went to the Eiffel Tower there were three Women in Burkhas all looking the same taking Photos of each other, another is the Miss Taliban Beauty Contests and the other is where a White Business Man in a Office high rise claiming to be an Australian Aborigine. None of them can be found due to politically correct filters on the Net. Instead I get these results, some Bitch claiming that the moderate right are worse than the outright racist, which by the way shows that she is a 'reverse' racist claiming that anyone of the right is a racist, the other is Josh Thomas crawling to the far left Political Correctness Police over things he went on about in the past. I found some stuff that was politically incorrect including by one Yank, but not what I was looking for.
GeraldtheGnome: So when someone shows a victim mentality and someone tells someone that then that Person has that then that Person is a racist ? Have you ever thought that you and your push to have reparations whist falsely claiming someone to be a racist are all forms of racist ideology ?
GeraldtheGnome: Interestingly enough. What all have you suffered ? By the way Obama, Oprah and a big long list of People with Black skin including half cast are making more money in a day than I probably ever will in my lifetime. Yet apparently I am privileged and you are suffering and deserve to be compensated ? How are you suffering and why ? Why should you be compensated and how ? Have you even thought of how you will be compensated and if it cost money then where that money comes from ? Do you have GST or VAT or any equivalent over there ?
I'm privileged hey ? Do you want to know my economic history ? It might make you think twice if you know it and how things are economically right now. Let me put it this way I'm not looking forward to Christmas and everything that cost me money after that.
Fractured fairy tale: yes there verry valid Questions Totally valid , If "whites" are so Privilaged why are any homeless Why are any poor Seen what this toxic idenity politics did to Aborigional Affairs minister he got hounded and had to leave Cos he Wasn't politically correct enough , Not only In real life but online By SJW"s , I wouldn't expect any answeres any time soon
Fractured fairy tale: There like them wack jobs who lay down at traffic lights , or who target the farmers cut the fences let all there cattle out , Print there Adresses online so there fellow SJW's can target them all for the Soppesed crime of being in the way of there Cause
