Please tell me how this doesn’t violate equal employment opportunity laws? Please.
This is the sort of thing which drives a wedge between people of different ethnicities, which is exactly the point. America you see is a construct of white male domination and so blatant discrimination in the name of correcting this is justified. (This case is made in sociology departments across this country.)
There was a time – it was brief but it existed – where it seemed like we’d try to be an “American people” defined by equal justice, the rule of law, and liberty. Sadly many people don’t want to be an “American people.”

“While Congressman Ellison encourages all individuals to apply, applicants with strong ties to the Fifth District or Minnesota are preferred,” the page states before adding one final note: “People of color, LGBTQ individuals, women, and people with disabilities are strongly encouraged to apply.”
The only people not possessing any of the “strongly encouraged” characteristics are white, straight, men without disabilities.
*And I’ll say right now I am not interested in hearing any racist rants one way or the other in response to this article. If you want to be a jerk keep it to yourself on this one.
