Default DNC Racial, Gender, and Sexual Orientation Discrimination

This looks very bad for the DNC.

http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017...tech-jobs.html

Quote:
DNC: White men shouldn't apply for tech jobs

White men need not apply.

That’s the message from a Democratic National Committee data services manager, currently on the hunt to filll multiple vacancies in the 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.

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 email in question was not authorized by the DNC nor was it authorized by senior leadership," spokesman Michael Tyler told Fox News. "All hiring decisions at the DNC are made consistent with the DNC’s commitment to equal employment opportunity and hiring an inclusive and talented staff that reflects the coalition of the Democratic Party, because our diversity is our greatest strength.”

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

maybe its true but this smells fishy...
the idea that the email would be that 'hit you over the head' explicit about it should throw up a number of red flags. the fact that this exists only in the conservative fever swamps so far should throw up more...
if she actually wrote that, or even was operating on it without saying it? fire her dumbass. but it just fits so many conservative tropes that it just feels fishy as hell.


three day ban-bet on whether or not it turns out to be real? determined by what the DNC spokespeople say about it...

How can you even doubt it at this point? People are stupid... they do stupid stuff ALL the time. To think someone from your side is not likely to be that stupid, is probably showing quite a bit of personal bias. The chick referenced wouldn't even give a comment?

*We've had a white chick, posing as a black chick as the head of an NAACP chapter.

*CNN specifically cheated the election, by feeding HRC questions ahead of her primaries.

*Read the way some of those leaked DNC emails refer to other dems, Bernie, Obama, etc... stupid people in the DNC proven.


I can list a hundred horrible things the GOP has done... but to just assume this is fake, is pretty disingenuous... worse when you were taking anonymous sources in the white house as fairly credible not that long ago, just because they talked to a major media outlet.

if she actually sent it? they are going to have to apologize, minimize, etc but they aren't Trump or General Kelly, they won't just flat lie about what is plainly true to anyone with eyes.

I just said that it smells fishy... that email ticks so many wingnut boxes that I find it less likely than not. I'm entirely open to the idea that I'm wrong but it just fits so many stereotypes perfectly...

I just figured I would make it interesting with the ban bet. if I lose (which is entirely possible)? meh.

I'll take it... DNC will distance themselves from it as oppose to proving it's a lie. Deal?

yeah my guess is that this works one of two ways:
- they deny it (most likely because it didn't happen - otherwise they potentially have bigger issues when it inevitably leaks that it did happen and they denied it)
- they let her go, recommit to diversity, and promise further internal reviews (because it happened and they know it will eventually leak if they tried to deny it)

DNC is full of shit. GOP is full of shit.

It's just all shit, all the time. I don't think it's very pertinent to debate who is shittier... even though it's clearly the GOP.

Is this really anything more than aggressive affirmative action?



As a light haired, green eyed, white male that’s worked in corporate America for the last 28 years, it’s of no surprise.

Agreed, but I think the DNC is more full of shit and old people who need to retire. The GOP has their own freedom hating shit, just not quite as shady (barely).
