DNC: White men shouldn't apply for tech jobs | Fox News

Quote:
White men need not apply.

That’s the message out of the Democratic National Committee’s hiring team, currently on the hunt to filll multiple vacancies in their tech department.

The political organization, which routinely makes grand statements about inclusion, recently sent an email to its employees looking to recruit people for eight open spots including IT Systems Administrator, Product Manager and Chief Security Officer.

Though the Oct. 30 email says that the DNC is looking for a “staff of diverse voices and life experiences,” it apparently doesn’t mean white men.

Quote:
DNC’s Data Service Manager Madeleine Leader purportedly wrote in an email that the desire for diversity excludes “cisgender straight white males.”

Leader adds, “I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, as they are already in the majority.”
Cisgender is a term for people whose gender identity matches the sex that they were assigned to at birth.

The Daily Wire, which first reported the incident, posted a screenshot of the email sent to DNC insiders.

A request for comment to the DNC was not immediately returned.

I guess she wins either way. Except for probably getting executed and all.

And half of the #metoo **** is like some guy kissed me but I didn’t want him to so I pushed him off and he stopped. The woman says no and the man stops and he’s still a predator? WTF? Real sexual assault and harassment at work is serious but this is just a puritanical attack on human sexuality disguised as feminism. The rule is clear. If the woman says no you stop. That’s the line. If you follow that rule you should be clear.

Lots more coming forward....

Don't think she should be punished for posting opinions on her personal FB account. She seems like a cunt though.

i agree she shouldn't be punished. but i think it's a bit funny that the guys from the dental program were.

no, i'm not trying to say there's some sexist man hating MRA non-sense. i just think it's interesting that when the dental scandal happened, every one demanded they be kicked out of the school. when this happened, every one demanded she be let off.
