In a memorandum issued by the White House Friday, the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) said it's planning to withdraw funding from racial sensitivity trainings for federal agencies, calling them "un-American" and "divisive," as thousands continue to protest police brutality and systemic racism across the country.

These trainings "run counter to the fundamental beliefs for which our Nation has stood since its inception," the Sept. 4 White House memo said, and they "undercut our core values as Americans."

The memo specifically targets the terms "critical race theory" and "white privilege," telling all agencies to review contracts containing those terms and "identify all available avenues within the law" to cancel them.
