Disclaimer: I feel this is a huge "NO-NO" for me to do, it would just make me look like an ass.
My university is hosting a minority STEM job fair with the intention of bolstering hiring rates for minority students. I don't have problem with this, especially with me being a white male.
My roommates however, are minorities, racially and also immigrants. They trying to convince me to attend the fair with them as we all have the same degree and try to help each other out when searching for jobs.
I think that the employers at the fair would look down on this and my fellow students would also disapprove of this.
Am I right in thinking it would be inappropriate of me to attend?
Edit: I have no intention of going, but my roommates are insisting that it would not be an issue to attend, and will not accept my explanation of how bad it would look for me.
Edit: To clarify some misunderstanding: It is not that they "need me for support" or anything like that, it is just that they don't really get why I am so hesitant to attend. It isn't 'gun to my head' sort of insisting, just a general "hey, attend this with us to talk to some good companies"
Edit: My apologies on posting a controversial topic, I didn't mean to start an issue here
Final Edit: Apparently I have trouble explaining things correctly. The idea is that it would be good for my job hunting to go to the career fair and talk with employers, but I explained to my roommates that going to such a fair would not be beneficial to me as I am not the target recruit for this event.
