Can I apply as a diversity candidate ?
I know that this post will make some rightwingers/conservatives/republicans angry but you can go to your corner and cry there.
I'm 1/8 black straight male (he/him) planning to work in IB. I look white but my great-grandfather was half-black so I would consider myself as 1/8 black.
Even though I still have a chance in IB without applying as a diversity candidate, I would like to increase my chances of getting into IB. I'm planning to apply as a black diversity candidate but I look white. Obviously, I can prove that my great-grandfather was half-black but still I'm worried. I don't think that they have any right to decide to my race by just looking at my skin color.
What do you think ?
