To favor minorities in a discriminatory way will just be passing the discrimination to another group, then in the future that group will need again this favor, and then another group will need that favor and so on. In my opinion the most short term thing to do is to put as little personal information as necessary into the eyes of the person with the decision making process to counter discrimination.

Exactly. It creates a never ending cycle. Skills (talent) should always be up top.
