White Woman Sues Foundation After Getting Denied Minority Internship
A white woman, so outraged that perhaps one thing on planet earth was not immediately accessible to her, has decided to file a lawsuit against the Getty Foundation because she was not granted an internship. The only thing is, she was aware that the internship was geared specifically toward minority candidates to promote diversity when she wasted her time putting in an application.
A discrimination lawsuit filed by a woman against the Getty Foundation alleges she was denied an undergraduate internship with the institution because she is white.
In the lawsuit filed Friday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Samantha Niemann accused Getty of violating her civil rights, racial discrimination and harassment as well as retaliation. She seeks unspecified compensatory and punitive damages.
According to the suit, Niemann “was deterred from applying” for the foundation’s Multicultural Undergraduate Internship program in Feb. 2015 after being told only black, Asian, Latino, Native-American and Pacific Islander candidates were eligible.
Niemann — who is of German, Irish and Italian descent — was told by a Getty Foundation representative that she was disqualified from applying because of her race and national origin, the suit states.
A student at Southern Utah University with a 3.7 grade-point average, the lawsuit argues Neimann was “well-qualified” for the internship.
“Well qualified,” huh? Except the qualification that is the ENTIRE POINT OF THE PROGRAM:
According to the Getty Foundation’s website, the Multicultural Undergraduate Internship program is aimed at encouraging “greater diversity in the professions related to museums and the visual arts.” The program supports “substantive, full-time summer work opportunities for college undergraduates from cultural backgrounds that have traditionally been underrepresented in the arts,” the website states.
Man, the privilege is strong with this one. Heaven forbid that a white woman is denied ANYTHING given to underrepresented racial groups.
What a stupid ploy to shakedown a foundation for cash and draw attention to her racist, over-privileged, bratty tendencies. We’re sure employers will LOVE that bit of information tied to her name when it’s time to enter the REAL job market…
