The two-year scheme at Bristol City Council is only open to candidates from black or ethnic minority backgrounds because the "normal recruitment process was not rectifying" under-representation.
The authority said the programme, which takes on two people a year, is lawful under race relations legislation because it is only a traineeship and does not guarantee a job at the end of it.
And who do you think would support schemes like this?
But Kerry McCarthy, a Labour MP in Bristol, said: "I would support schemes like this. It gives people an opportunity."
Why on earth do Bristol City Council give a fuck what colour the people they employ are? Shouldn't they just be happy they've got people who are good at the job? It's not up to them to "redress the balance" - or at least, I didn't think it was.
The mind fucking boggles.
And how the fuck do they think that banning white people from applying will increase the numbers of black people applying to the job? Either way, apparently in their eyes, discrimination is perfectly OK, so long as it's against white people.
The fucking hand-wringing racists.
