Woman denied job due to “ghetto” name

Published

A Facebook user, Hermeisha Robinson, on her wall shared an email rejecting her for a job vacancy because her name sounded “ghetto.”

Robinson, who lives in Missouri, US shared her experience with Mantality Health in Chesterfield in an all-caps post: “I have a public service announcement, I am very upset because today I received an email about this job that I applied for as a customer service representative at Mantality Health … I know I’m well qualified for the position as they seen on my resume!”

Robinson’s post continued: “They discriminated against me because of my name which they considered it to be ‘ghetto’ for their company! My feelings are very hurt and they even got me second guessing my name trying to figure out if my name is really that ‘ghetto.’

Robinson asked friends to share her post, saying the “discrimination has to stop,” but company officials revealed the message wasn’t from them, claiming their e-mail system was hacked.

According to St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Kevin Meuret, the CEO of the clinic that treats men with low testosterone, told the newspaper on Tuesday that someone from outside Missouri hacked into its email system, most likely a disgruntled former employee.

“Thank you for your interest in careers at Mantality Health,” read the response to Robinson. “Unfortunately we do not consider candidates that have suggestive ‘ghetto’ names. We wish you the best in your career search.”

Meuret said about 20 potential employees got emails from the hacker. Reports have since been filed with police in both Chesterfield and St. Louis County, he said.

“I’m a father of three daughters, and that young lady getting that [response] is horrible,” Meuret told the newspaper. “That young lady opened something that must have felt like a freight train, and that’s unacceptable.”

Meuret promised to “pursue this even if it becomes a federal matter,” he told the Post-Dispatch.

On Wednesday, Robinson said she was being called a liar.
