Is it legal for a hiring manager to discriminate in hiring employees? 2 Answers as of April 11, 2011

I recently applied for a position posted on a company website. I called to inquire and was told that the hiring manager was only interested in a young, female who is African American. I asked if he had "one" in mind and was told he was interviewing and reviewing the appropriate candidates currently. I am wondering if this is legal.

It's illegal for a hiring manager to discriminate on the basis of age, race, gender, religion, nationality, disability, HIV or marital status.
