...unless that majority group holds basic human equality as a value.
Nah, step #1 is to realize that you are never hired solely on your merits, and neither is anyone else.
Step #2 is to use that knowledge to make the world near you better in whatever small way you are able.
Like, if someone near you is like "poor people should just get jobs!" you can challenge them on it. Or if someone opposes taxation because of "welfare queens" you can correct them. Or you can help the org you're a part of make better hiring choices. Or lots of things. It's kind of a "butterfly flapping its wings" effect. Once you realize that it's a problem and look for ways to do something about it, opportunities present themselves.
You can encourage others - and especially organizations - to do the same.
So maybe your first step should be to develop some frickin' empathy?
