It’s almost as if the Democratic National Committee wants to lose elections.
The DNC is looking for new employees in its technology department, but according to a report from The Daily Wire, white males need not apply.
On Monday, Madeleine Leader, manager of the DNC’s data services, reportedly circulated an email announcing several open positions, urging her colleagues to circulate the information to those who might be interested in the job opportunities.
“I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, since they’re already in the majority,” she added to the end of the message.
Leader wrote earlier in the email that the DNC is working on “maintaining a staff of diverse voices and life experiences, something that we desperately need if we hope to secure the future of our country.”
White men, though, apparently have nothing to bring to the table.
While certainly ridiculous, Leader’s comments are not unique. In early October, Denise Young Smith, vice president of inclusion and diversity at Apple, was pressured to apologize after daring to suggest a group of white men are “diverse too because they’re going to bring a different life experience and life perspective to the conversation.”
An unnamed source within the DNC responded to Leader’s email, telling The Daily Wire that the organization “is doubling down on a failed strategy that has alienated staffers and voters alike.”
“We want to be judged based on the quality of our work, not on identity politics,” the source said. “How can we trust the leadership of the DNC if they don’t even trust us?”
