WLU Current — Inappropriate

I was in an interview for a position affiliated with a department on campus. During the interview, the faculty member interviewer said I would be the “first [my minority group] person to go through the program” if I got the position. There were similar comments made throughout my interview, despite the fact that my minority status was not relevant to the position I was applying for and was not mentioned anywhere in my application. I did not get the position, and couldn’t get any information as to why upon request. Was I discriminated against? I can’t prove it. At best, I was subjected to inappropriate comments in an interview. At worst, I didn’t receive an opportunity that I was qualified for because of my minority status.
