Up until around 60 years ago Black people in the US were legally discriminated against in jobs, housing, bank loans, water fountains, etc. So now you seem to be bothered that some companies may be going out of their way to hire a few Black people in their mostly White organizations.

I’ve had many jobs and some of the best people I’ve ever worked with were African Americans. They by no means got to where they were at by being given a handout. They earned every single opportunity they received.

As I’m sure you are aware, there are many reasons why certain people win jobs over others. I see this as just another factor in the hiring process.
