Univ of Louisville pulls job posting which had excluded whites and asians from applying

The University of Louisville placed an ad for a “tenure-track Assistant Professor position” which specified the racial/ethnic makeup of who would be considered eligible.

Newsbusters is covering the story, noting that “It was removed after appearing for almost two months. Thanks to the wonders of Google cache, readers can see the relevant portion below (HT Progressives Today).” Check out a screenshot of the job posting below.

The Louisville Bizjournal reported on the story and the fire storm and the Inside Higher Ed, in a story with the headline “Whites, Asians Need Not Apply” – adding that

Michael Olivas, former general counsel for the American Association of University Professors, was quoted in Inside Higher Ed’s story as saying that the ad reminded him of U of L president James Ramsey’s recent Halloween costume incident “in that both events were two sides of the same racially tone-deaf coin.” Ramsey had dressed up for the holiday in stereotypical Mexican gear, the story said.

Newsbusters pointed out the absence of the story from the media: “Did you hear about the university which advertised for “a tenure-track Assistant Professor position that will be filled by a White American or Asian American”? Of course you didn’t, because it didn’t happen. But it’s not difficult to imagine the outrage which would justifiably ensue if such an ad were ever placed.”
