Multiple Women Receive Job Rejection Emails Because of ‘Ghetto Names’

*Over a dozen women claim they received rejection letters from St. Louis’ Mantality Health center noting their “ghetto names” as the reason the candidates did not get the job.

Dornisha Zachary and Militina Burnett are speaking out after the company sent them an offensive email that read, in part, “Thank you for your interest in careers at Mantality Health. Unfortunately, we do not consider candidates that have a suggestive ghetto name. We wish you the best in your career search. Regards.”

The painful words made Zachary “a little teary,” she said

Zachary says she applied for a customer service job using Indeed.com but noted, “The company looked at my name and said, ‘We don’t care about what you’ve done in life. Your name is going to dismiss you completely.'”

Mantality Health’s clinic director Jack Gamache told KMOV that the company’s account was hacked and that police are investigating the situation.

Investigators believe the emails were sent by a disgruntled employee.

Meanwhile, Indeed responded by saying there is no evidence to support that hacking occurred.
