Denys Blell, who has a master's degree in African-American history and an African and Lebanese ancestry, was turned down for a position as "assistant vice president for academic affairs and diversity" at Baltimore's Loyola College. He sued the school, alleging that the hiring official had told him that African-American faculty members were concerned he was too light-skinned and not "visibly black" to impressionable students.
