Are all minorities diversity hires?

I got a job recommendation sent over to me via LinkedIn.

Here's how it went:
  • My experience aligned with the role and I matched ALL of the preferred qualifications.
  • I went to the company website to get a feel of their company culture and see what other roles they had open.
  • Then, I landed on their commitment to a diversity landing page. Apparently, they had a mission to be 43% more diverse than they currently are now.
So, I didn't apply. Although I had the experience, education, and qualifications. I didn't apply. Because I knew everything, I would contribute at that company would be looked at under a microscope of you're only here because you're "fill-in-the-blank."

Interested in hearing everyone's thoughts on this!
