When the US constitution was written and ratified (including the equal protection clause of the 14th amendment), there was no expectation that private employers would be prevented from discriminating even on the basis of race, ethnicity, and religion. That's a more modern development that may well be a good one, but it comes from a line of thinking that is in direct conflict with the idea of freedom that inspired our constitution in the first place. The change should have required an amendment.

So, no, our constitution doesn't draw that line and it's not clear within the four corners of the document.
