    I personally think it's a fantastic idea, surprised no-one came up with it before.

    This is great.

    Now I can just hire a black friend to seem open-minded and cool, rather than actually having to fraternise with black people

    JESUS ****ING CHRIST, IS THIS A JOKE?
    Spoiler:
    Show
    First, give yourself a pat on the back. By making it as far as the FAQ, you are officially 1179% smarter than your friend who just Facebooked 'OMG! Is this real? I can't believe it it's a disgrace. Sad face emoji.' So, yes, this is a joke. Obviously. You can stop getting angry now. Or get angry, but get angry at what Rent-a-Minority is angry about. The site is a #satire on a type of tokenism that is particularly rife in the tech and media world. Rather than address institutional inequality in any meaningful way, diversity is something that is generally just for (temporary) show. Companies tend to be very careful to ensure that their websites contain an acceptable ratio of women and non-white people; on their leadership boards, however, it’s another matter.

    This is a pretty good site y'know. Go to the FAQ.

    It pretty much confirmed itself as a satirical website as soon as I saw the tab "Minority Report"- remember the film?

    This website looks legit. I'm already putting an order of 2 asians + 2 whites for an upcoming international night to show how international I am. Thanks rent-a-minority!
