Given that the Hogan hasn't ever been cross-culturally validated, this sort of sounds like someone going to considerable effort to discriminate. In fact, it could easily be made to seem xenophobic by any enterprising young journalist who wanted to count coup on a big corporation.
Most major airlines would simply show their statistics on hiring. I suspect most qualified minority applicants have a higher rate of getting the job offer than white males. End of story at that point.
