Despite federal laws forbidding racial discrimination, a memo sent by Madeleine Leader -- Data Service Manager for the Democratic National Committee -- noted that the party’s alleged commitment to diversity does not extend to white heterosexual males. The memo said that the DNC is seeking to hire personnel to fill positions on its technology team that include: Chief Security Officer, IT Systems Administrator, and Product Manager.

The email said that the party wants a “staff of diverse voices and life experiences.” However, this apparently does not extend to “cisgender straight white males.” Leader wrote in her closing remarks, “I personally would prefer that you not forward to cisgender straight white males, as they are already in the majority.” “Cisgender” is a term referring to someone who adheres to his or her sex as identified at birth, i.e. not transgender.
