Berlin Humboldt University job ad: ‘White people need not apply’

For a counseling center job on racist discrimination run by the Advisory Council at Berlin's Humboldt University, whites need not apply. "We ask (...) white people to refrain from applying for this advice center." It claimed that consultations work best "when the consultant is black or as a person of color".

    “It means advice that is oriented towards the needs of the person seeking advice in order to create a space in which those affected by racial discrimination can feel comfortable and share their experiences.”

    As reported by German broadcaster rbb, this racist job advert caused a stir on Thursday. The station quoted the research policy spokesman for the CDU parliamentary group, Adrian Grasse, as saying that this was illegal and extremely discriminatory. Racism should not be combated with racism.

    The press spokesman for the Humboldt University, Hans-Christoph Keller, tried to convince the broadcaster that it would advance the “plurality of opinions” to discriminate against a racial group, in this case whites: “It is expressly not in the interests of Humboldt University to discriminate against people. Regardless of skin color and origin, gender, ideological view or age. We see ourselves as a place of plurality of opinions, mutual appreciation and respect.”

    It is true that the Student Parliament and the Advisory Council act as an independent employer in the area of ​​private law, which is not subject to the legal supervision of the Humboldt University. But the management of the Berlin university nevertheless asked the student body to review the job advertisement after the uproar.

    A statement to that effect was thus issued promptly: “We are in the process of revising the ad. We regret the ambiguous wording,” said the council, according to rbb, on the same day. The changed job posting appeared on Thursday evening.

    It also stated that advice should be given as to what works best – when councillors “advise from a perspective of their own being affected by racist discrimination”.

    “We would therefore like to encourage people who experience racist discrimination in particular to apply for the position.”

    In addition, sensitivity to “discrimination by trans*hostile, sexist and misogynist conditions are necessary. Participation in anti-racism training and/or anti-discrimination training is also desirable, but not necessary”.
