Black diversity boss offers Levi’s staff individual ‘racial trauma’ counseling to ‘promote healing’ after Kyle Rittenhouse acquittal

  • Levi’s chief diversity, equality and inclusion officer sent letter of advice
  • “With the news that Kyle Rittenhouse has not been convicted… during protests against racial justice last year, this is a difficult day for many,” wrote Elizabeth Morrison.
  • She offered ‘racial trauma specialist’ and 24-hour mental health services










Jeansmaker Levi’s has offered awakening therapy from a “racial trauma specialist” to “encourage healing” after Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of murder.

Levi’s Chief Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Officer, Elizabeth Morrison, sent a letter to staff that began: “With news that Kyle Rittenhouse has not been convicted of shooting three people – two of whom died – during protests against racial justice last year ,,This is a difficult day for many.’

Morrison provided 24-hour mental health care to people suffering the “pain and trauma of race, identity and faith-based tragedies.”

She added: “To help promote safety, sharing and encouragement of healing, I’ll be hosting a fireside meeting and Q&A in early December with Dr Jamila Codrington, a licensed psychologist and specialist in racial trauma.”

Rittenhouse, 18, was acquitted of all charges, including first-degree willful manslaughter, after shooting two white men and wounding a third in August 2020 during Black Lives Matter protests in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

The teen said he acted in self-defense and feared for his life when he was chased down the street by an angry mob who threatened to kill him.

The acquittal caused Joe Biden to say he was “angry and concerned” and led to widespread liberal collapse after Rittenhouse was portrayed as a white nationalist after the shooting.

In the letter to staff, Morrison added: “Dr. During our discussion, J and I will talk about the mental and psychological effects of back-to-back social and racial justice events and trauma-processing mechanisms.”

California-based director encouraged employees to use the counseling because ‘resources to help’ [employees] impact on social justice, equality and promote positive change” such as “getting educated and informed on the issue of gun violence” and “contacting your elected officials to let them know how important common sense gun laws are to you.”

Jamila Codrington is a New York graduate psychologist who has appeared on several panels and claims that “black people have been tricked into thinking we don’t matter.”

Codrington appeared on the Karen Hunter radio show in January for a discussion of how “we should decolonize our minds.”

“One of the main weapons of colonialism and white supremacy was to destroy our memory and separate us from our wealth — our cultural wealth,” she said.

“We have been erased from the history books and forced not to speak our native language. And so there is so much that we can reclaim and recall our traditional place in society – where we were before slavery…

“We come from a heritage of people who were resilient to us, who were kings and queens, who were explorers – we produced civilization. And that’s the first place to intervene because we’ve been misled into thinking we don’t matter and all this comes from a legacy of slavery and we have to defy this lie of inferiority.”

A Levi’s spokesperson confirmed that the “email has been sent to all US employees and that the purpose of the fireplace chat is accurately described in the email.”
