Retiring US Archivist Tells White House: Administration ‘Better Not Hire Another White Male’

Retiring U.S. national archivist David Ferriero allegedly gave the Biden administration some strict instruction in recent weeks on what type of person should be nominated to replace him — only it had nothing to do with qualifications.

Instead, the outgoing archivist told administration officials his primary concern is that the new archivist fit a certain demographic; namely, not white and male.

“That’s advice I’ve given to the White House already: that you better not hire another white male. … We’ve had 10 white males,” Ferriero said during an interview during the National Archives annual Sunshine Week event.
