A council has been accused of discrimination after white people were barred from applying for two £18,000-a-year jobs.
Bristol City has created the management training posts for graduates in an effort to recruit more minority employees.
As a result the council will only accept applications from ethnic minorities for the two-year placements.
But this has prompted criticism from white graduates struggling to find work.
One jobseeker, who did not wish to be named, described the posts as 'totally racist'.
He said: 'I am a tolerant white person who has lived in Bristol for 27 years.
'I am searching for a job and stumbled across a job advertisement on Bristol City Council's website that I see as totally racist.
'I feel the job would be an excellent opportunity for me to make use of the skills and qualifications that I have acquired but, being white, I am excluded.
'Equal opportunities means giving everyone an equal chance to succeed rather than discriminating against people because of the colour of their skin.'
The two jobs are described on BCC's website as 'open to black and minority ethnic graduates' only, with applications closing on June 11
"Now tomorrow morning, Butch will read this post and put up an entirely different viewpoint..."
But you're right, I will put up a different viewpoint .... Fatty Martletts is an out and out racist, there is no question of that, and that goes for all his other IDs too, Bert, Wogan, Buster, Cliff, Acora and the rest.
Racism isn't in the eye of the beholder, it's in the mind of the racist. And I'm pleased that as soon as someone speaks out against them they are accused of being me, it's a sign that I'm doing something right.
As to having a pop at you Nige, I reserve that right, as do you, otherwise we might as well ignore each other.
I am confused and maybe wrong ( i hope i am, wrong that is, not confused) but thats twice now i've sensed hostility from you toward my post, i've read some of the other threads and posts, i've seen the ones having a pop at you but i've also seen worse, much worse and this is where my confusion comes in. Are you putting people on ignore for having a direct pop at you but not other idiots that posting utter garbage, like this buster chap, a bigot and a racist, Derek Martletts a bigot and racist and including Derek and 'Sam' for spouting garbage?
why are you insulted CHAS?
what #$%$ have i spouted?
what relevance does an amount of post conversations have to do with it?
as i said just now, the ignore button is for the weak minded, the fool and the ignoramus.
I'm not Butch! My god, are you and 'Sams' buddy Derek both from the same institution or what?
Fine, put me on ignore it just strengthens the fact that you're ignorant.
Try educating yourself a little and spending less time on here talking tripe.
a group that has different national or cultural traditions from the majority of the population.
Now, where or how does that meaning of the term 'ethnic minority' mention anything to do with skin colour?
Why does the guy who wants to apply for the job feel that because he is white he is excluded?
And why have you 2 Dereks immediately jumped on it?
