    (a) Unlawful Employment Practice.--Section 703(j) of the Civil 
Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000e-2(j)) is amended to read as 
follows:
    ``(j)(1) It shall be an unlawful employment practice for any entity 
that is an employer, employment agency, labor organization, or joint 
labor-management committee subject to this title to grant preferential 
treatment to any individual or group with respect to selection for, 
discharge from, compensation for, or the terms, conditions, or 
privileges of, employment or union membership, on the basis of the 
race, color, religion, sex, or national origin of such individual or 
group, for any purpose, except as provided in subsection (e) or 
paragraph (2).
    ``(2) It shall not be an unlawful employment practice for an entity 
described in paragraph (1) to recruit individuals of an 
underrepresented race, color, religion, sex, or national origin, to 
expand the applicant pool of the individuals seeking employment or 
union membership with the entity.''.
    (b) Construction.--Nothing in the amendment made by subsection (a)

section 706(g) of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 (42 U.S.C. 2000e-5(g)), 
intentional discrimination under title VII of such Act (42 U.S.C. 2000e
