(JTA) -- An employee is suing the Anti-Defamation League for denying her a promotion because she is not Jewish.
Tonietta Moffet says the ADL will not promote her to assistant director because she is "African American and not Jewish," the New York Post reported Monday. She filed a lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan seeking damages for discrimination.
Somehow you expect more from Jewish organizations when it comes to relations with employees – who, after all, are mostly in it because they care about communal causes, not because of the big paychecks and great benefits.
It wasn’t all that long ago that, in the immediate aftermath of Barack Obama’s sweeping victory in the race for President, more than a few pundits were declaring that America had become a “post-racist society.” I wish it were so, but I’m sure it’s not.
