A female student from the University of Dallas applied to an internship that she was qualified for except for one little detail: the lack of color in her skin.
The student said she applied but was denied because she is white, according to the College Fix.
“Unfortunately, you are not eligible for the program,” her rejection letter read. “SEO Career targets Black, Hispanic, and Native American undergraduates, who are underrepresented in the careers they seek.”
If that was a person of color, there would already be riots in the streets. How is that not racist??
The internship was provided by Sponsors for Educational Opportunity, a professional development organization tied to major financial corporations such as CitiBank, IBM, and Goldman Sachs, the College Fix noted. It was advertised as a financial position under the title of “SEO Career 2021 Paid Summer Internship.”
The internship application enumerated a list of qualifications, all of which the student met, including a minimum GPA of 3.0, a declared economics major, and class status of at least sophomore. The application failed to note that whites need not apply.
“It’s not like I was underqualified or anything, I met everything else,” the student told the College Fix, while asking to remain anonymous to protect her future career in the finance field.
“I had the right major, I had the right GPA, I was the right year in college,” she continued, “but I was white so they wouldn’t help me.”
“It’s just frustrating that my skin color can stand in the way of my future career when I’ve worked so hard for my grades and do well in my classes,” the student added. “I do all of these things to try and help my resume look better to future employers and I end up being rejected for the color of my skin. It just feels like we’re going backwards.”
In an explanation of their policies, the SEO explained, “Our mission is to create a more equitable society, where people from all racial backgrounds are represented at every level of American society.”
They continued, “While we do not host internships or use race in our hiring decisions, we provide supplemental education and training to support the advancement of underserved and underrepresented individuals, with a special focus on those who will benefit most from SEO’s services and intervention.”
What the SEO failed to explain is how “underserved and underrepresented individuals” does not justify using race as a hiring factor.
