Why do white Americans still get hired over minorities?
I wrote about the problem in March 2016 when the Obama administration decided to stop using the term “white” in employment and other public services.
At the time, the Obama White House said that because the term was “politically sensitive” it had been taken out of the title.
The administration said that since it didn’t want to use the term because it was “offensive,” it would “continue to use ‘white’ and its synonyms as appropriate.”
But now the White House is backtracking and saying it won’t change its policy on the issue.
In a press release Friday, the White Trumpet said that it would continue to use “white.”
But when the White Congress met in April to discuss a new version of the Whitehouse.gov website, a White House official told me that “the White House has no plans to change its current policy” and that the new version would be called “white,” the official said.
In the press release, the official also said that the WhiteHouse.gov site would continue “to provide users with the most relevant information, including information about government programs and the White Houses budget.”
The White House website still says that the administration “uses the term ‘white.'”
But the official told The Washington Post that the site would also continue to refer to “white workers.”
