OR...I can make them prove that I don't have any "black" blood.
It saddens me to see this in America today....well...it just isn't "American".
You will lose your case for having posted your intent here....and, because you’re white.
How is this NOT discrimination?
Unfortunately, I see these ads every day in the academic world.
Look for the “paper bag test” to make a comeback.
That is standard boilerplate on all government job listings, though stated a bit clumsily here. More typical phrasing is “Women and Minorities are ENCOURAGED to Apply”
Tell them you are part Cherokee
So, the solution to discrimination is more discrimination.
You find the right lawyer with an imagination and a good sense of PR work I think you could take this to the USSC. Its a judgement call on what “race” you are and from what I know there is no legal standards for racial definition determination.
Ok, I’ll bite: What is a “paper bag test”?
They can’t do this!
What ever happened to that nice EOE law?
SEC. 2000e-2. [Section 703]
(a) Employer practices
It shall be an unlawful employment practice for an employer -
(1) to fail or refuse to hire or to discharge any individual, or otherwise to discriminate against any individual with respect to his compensation, terms, conditions, or privileges of employment, because of such individuals race, color, religion, sex, or national origin; or
(2) to limit, segregate, or classify his employees or applicants for employment in any way which would deprive or tend to deprive any individual of employment opportunities or otherwise adversely affect his status as an employee, because of such individuals race, color, religion, sex, or national origin.
“OR...I can make them prove that I don’t have any “black” blood.”
That’s always the most interesting point to me. Everybody always talks about minorities, ethnicity, diversity, and race, but no one can ever say exactly how any of those things can be verified.

Lighter or darker than.
Southern DEMOCRATS used to test whether someone was white or “negro” by holding a brown paper bag up next to their face.
If you’re lighter than the bag, you’re white - darker, “negro”.
In terms of employment stability, it must be sweet to be a highly-competent, educated, black person. It is triple-insurance against corporate layoffs.
Hell, I’m in AR and I haven’t heard of that. Wow. Thanks!
