First, the irrelevant news: The Democratic National Committee is looking to fill positions in its technology department. Among the openings the organization seeks to fill is IT systems administrator. That’s a title formerly held by a man named Imran Awan. an acquaintance the DNC surely regrets ever having made.
You can see the entire list of jobs in the following screenshot of an email sent out by Data Services Manager Madeleine Leader, a copy of which Elliott Hamilton of the Daily Wire managed to obtain and post on Twitter. You will notice that some of the information about the sender has been crossed out. But you’ll also notice that one section of the email has been highlighted. It reads:
I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, since they’re already in the majority.
Hmm, that’s interesting. It’s also slightly confusing in light of the following claim, which appears on the “Work with Us” page of the DNC’s website:
The DNC is an equal opportunity employer and it is our policy to recruit, hire, train, promote and administer any and all personnel actions without regard to sex, race, age, color, creed, national origin, religion, economic status, sexual orientation, veteran status, gender identity or expression, ethnic identity or disability, or any other legally protected basis. [Emphasis added]
The DNC sure seems to have its share of problems with emails!
