"A black woman claims she received an email from a company in Missouri on Monday denying her of a job she applied for because her name was “ghetto.”

Hermeisha Robinson said in a post, which has since gone viral on Facebook, that she had been rejected from a position she believed she was “well qualified for” by a company because of her name.

According to a screenshot Robinson shared in her Facebook post, the email said the following: “Thank you for your interest in careers at Mantality Health. Unfortunately we do not consider candidates that have suggestive ‘ghetto’ names. We wish the best in your career search.”
“They discriminated against me because of my name which they considered it to be ‘ghetto’ for their company!” Robinson said in the Facebook in regards to the email she received from what appeared to be an employee at the company’s location Chesterfield, Mo."
