Does the affirmative action concept apply when hiring?

lets say candidate X is a minority in tech and scored a 4/5 on the interview and Y is not a minority and scores 4/5. Candidate X gets the offer but Candidate Y doesn’t. Does this reflect reality? I know the laws state otherwise.

The reason I ask is because companies always are striving for a more diverse workplace.

disclaimer - i am not against nor for either, just a curious person

    On a phone interview? Think about what you’re saying.

    If you failed a phone interview, that’s on you. Not your ethnicity.

      When people agree with Oath, suddenly it makes sense 🤔.
      Could @Atinlay2 makes sense the whole time, but people selectively think it doesn't make sense when they disagree?

      Snowflakes on here think everything is a race issue. It’s possible to just be a bad candidate

    Example of female bias?

    This wouldn’tz be legal, but there may be a few timid hiring managers who who don’t have the guts to stand up to HR and may prioritise diversity hires with similar interview scores to look good.
