I think the to key items are:

employment decisions based on stereotypes or assumptions about the
abilities, traits, or performance....; and

denying employment opportunities to a person because of marriage to,
or association with, an individual of a particular race, religion,
national origin,....

Both of these are results based. If I really hate a demographic on
the inside, and I even let people know my personal prefrence, but as
an officer of the corporation make all decisions fairly, and I don't
deny anything to anybody even if I can't stand the ground they walk
on, I've broken no law. I may not be a great person, but I'm still OK
