A company has told a black woman that they will not be hiring her because her name is Ghetto.
We’ve all heard the stories that Black people are far less likely to get hired by companies simply because they’re black, and a lot of people deny it though studies directly show this is 100% a truth.
Today we see one of its many examples, blatantly captured.
Hermeisha Robinson wrote about what happened to her on a facebook post.
“Thank you for your interest in careers at Mantality Health. Unfortunately, we do not consider candidates that have suggestive ‘ghetto’ names. We wish the best in your career search.”
The company has told the KMOV news network that their website on Indeed was hacked, and that it wasn’t them.
The company’s ceo, CEO Kevin Meuret said:
“This is not a reflection of who we are as a company. This is deplorable.”
Chesterfield police are looking into the hacking claims, but the Indeed website has conducted an investigation of their own, and have found no evidence of hacking at all. Indeed released a statement to the KMOV news station saying,
“Account security is of utmost importance to Indeed and something that we diligently monitor. Account holders are responsible for use of their password and we recommend frequent updates and complete confidentiality of your password. Our investigation into this particular account shows no evidence of compromise.”
