‘Whites only’ job ad removed after 20 days

whites only

Cape Town — An advert specifying that “only white candidates” should apply for a digital design position in the Western Cape was removed from a local recruitment website on Wednesday afternoon — more than 20 days after it was posted.

People Solved, based in Cape Town, posted the advert on September 5 at the behest of one of its clients. No deadline for applications was provided in the advertisement which called for applicants for an intermediate to senior user experience (UX) design post.

The package was estimated at R420 000 per annum. “Please note. Only white candidates,” the advert read.

It did not specify the name of the company seeking to fill the position. It was also not known how many applications the advert had since garnered.

People Solved director Simon Hill said the advert was removed as soon as News24 had alerted them to the “mistake”.

“We are investigating the incident and as you’ve seen, immediately removed the advert when we noticed it,” Hill said.

“I can tell you this is the first of its kind that something like this happens.” — AFP

      Yes it is , what is news to you ? Newspapers generally have many articles ,some of which depending on the preferences of the reader might not be interesting.The general rule is you virtually ignore news that might not be palatable to you , to then think because you personally don’t find the story interesting and thus it’s not news is rather myopic and strange .

      • The Politician

        Well analysed Kevin.I for one I don’t read anything to do with sport but I know there are millions out there who consider sports news newsworthy but I respect that.

        Yha racism is bad, very bad! It’s particularly horrendous / horrific / horrible when it results in the death of ppl as was done by #ThisGovernment during “fast track land reform” when some nutty proclaimed without shame that “Let’s strike fear in the heart of the white man”.That was satanic Cdes!

        • מלך גורו

          What’s racist about this? Create your own companies and hire blacks…

          • מלך גורו

            Don’t associate me with such scum… That is why there is BEE black economic empowerment. I have my own company and I won’t employ any whites… You should do the same. Instead of crying for employment from them.

      • MaGumede

        Unless you want to be a critic to try to help improve the quality of your local paper. In any case you have to read something first to know its quality or else you might ignore something you like. That is my General rule.

          What quality improvements are needed, Chronicle is a one of the professionally run papers behind The Herald. This is a paper by the people for the people, you’re insignificant to Chronicle for any of your views to be considered.

          • MaGumede

            Put a sock in it. Your views are too insignificant for me to even bother about. Who cares about an idiot who uses two (now more) profiles anyhow?

          • Orenthal James

            Your mom is leaving my flat now. Coming home to you.

          • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

            You’re even more dumb than I thought if you can’t understand that they are trolls as well on this forum like on other forums as well. Too many people imitating other people here. There was once a guy who was a rap fanatic here, ever since he came here the majority of rascals are still trying ta sound like him. I’ve got one profile & it’s all I need

          I still get the chills when Arnold steps off the elevator, just thinking/feeling the terror Sarah felt lol great scene

        • MakhosiXamu

          Kevin is absolutely correct. Your perception is just trash

          • Zululikandaba Mthoe Zvikonzero

            bwaaaaahahahaaaaaaa, kwaaaaaaks!!

          • MaGumede

            What are you crying for?

            Dadewethu, ngiyakhala??
            Am I crying??

          • MaGumede

            It sound very much like you are. Unless you think MakhosiXamu is a circus clown that you have to laugh every time he opens his silly mouth.

          • Zululikandaba Mthoe Zvikonzero

            you’ve said it all

          • MaGumede

            Look I get it. When good sense goes into trash ears it has to sound like trash. If you give a pig pudding and rotting potato peels can it tell the difference? Nooooo.

          • Simon

            Madam you are a poet. That is the best quote I have herd in a long time. You are absolutely correct. MakhosiXamu being a pig would dash for the rotting potatoes…KKKKKKKKKKKK

          • Zululikandaba Mthoe Zvikonzero

            these losses were due to his drug addict and the death of his former coach, in his prime those guys wouldn’t stand 3 rounds for sure!!!

          • Simon

            Oh my goodness. Its off its Meds. Now we will have to endure lessons from Geography history Boxing and what next. I am off to the PUB….MaGumede has driven him back to insanity.

          • Zululikandaba Mthoe Zvikonzero

            kikikiki, my brother that’s lethal right there. I like your creativity and I give you my respect for that comment alone. Surely MaGumede has driven him back to insanity, kikikiki.

    MANDELA YOU LET YOUR PEOPLE DOWN. ZUMA MUST GO. JULIUS MUST TAKE AND GIVE TO THE RIGHTFULL OWNERS THE LAND, MINES AND INDUSTRY AND LET THOSE SORRY RACISTS GO AND PRACTICE THEIR RACISM BACK HOME WHEREVER THEIR FORE-
    FATHERS CAME FROM…THAT IS IF THEY ARE STILL WANTED THERE

    • Zvinochererwa Padzairimwa

      pamberi mwana wevhu, pamberi!!

    • SkankyBeach

      And how did that work out for you in Zimbabwe? Here I am reading an article on poverty & hunger due to the destruction of Zimbabwe by Mugabe. Julius has no policies to uplift the rural poor – what has he done for his communities in Limpopo other than steal from school children and from the tax man. Building luxury house in Sandton, driving Range Rovers and traveling to Europe to meet with Renwick. Don’t be fools, populists never cared about the poor

  • zibulo

    Racism and Tribalism are the same ; Evil. In Zimbabwe , the government tribally governs and implements its policies. Shonas are in charge of Mthwakazi region in all state departments , making Mthwakazians subservient to Shonas. Today the Shona person in Matebelenad enjoys a good and secure employment in Govt here, has a decent salary compared to the local person he has come to serve in the region, and he has the luxury of sending the Income earned here back to his Origin- empumalanga. The local man and his family watch daily in glee as the “favored immigrants” enjoy what is rightfully what they should be reaping after the equal sacrifices made during the liberation war. When we always raise this issue , the beneficiaries rush to scream TRIBALIST !!!. Shonas are humans like us but why are they and have they been deployed in this manner here??? what do authorites feel like when they see local communities being forced to adapt to the new culture and language brought by the refugees. Wahy rush to publish a racist advert in RSA when we have this magnitude of discrimination here? RSA is daily little by little dismantling apartheid , yet here daily the Govt implements and empowers one tribe- this is a recipe for future disaster

    • MakhosiXamu

      What an empty theory only meant to please stupid idiots. Your claims are baseless. You should live amongst wild animals.

      • Simon

        You should live amongst wild animals? KKKK Wena you already are.

      • zibulo

        why do you always choose to follow me up when i raise this topic? Anything you defend is always true, just like all opinions critisizing Govt here are true but never acted upon, and even “modified”. So those whos accept to see favored outsiders eating their share, with the security of the CIO planted all over to make them succumb, are fools ???

  • musa

    so what if the employer wants white person? doesn’t the employer have a right to choose what s/he wants? why waste black people’s time by having them apply and then having the employer considering only white people?

    • MaGumede

      That is what the world needs to get rid of. What is the difference with jobs been given to a certain group, tribe or color. The only discrimination that is justified in a Job is language. You cannot hire a teacher that speaks French only to teach English. As long as you discriminate by color, race or tribe you are a bigot.

      • Maphila Samuel Nhlabatsi

        Stop flaunting your ignorance, culture can be used to discriminate against people. Caesar’s Palace, is a Greek Top class restaurant in New York and everyone working there is Greek in one way or the other, have witnessed this first hand when on overseas assignments.

        • MaGumede

          So get out of Zimbabwe and go there.

        • Jofa

          I think you are very stupid. If it is Greek speaking people that are the majority of customers a clever person might insist his waiters speak Greek and English. That is what MaGumede is speaking about situtha.

          • MaGumede

            Seems like when others were on their books Maphila was fast asleep if he could not get the gist of my statement.

      • Piet Vorster

        Private companies don’t have to hire on merit, that’s what the word “private” in private sector means.

    • benjamin

      Its now allowed anymore… Employment must be based solely on merit. All humans are the same regardless of skin color. Once opportunities started to be availed to Blacks, we started having black lawyers, black scientists, black engineers, black astraunauts etc… that by itself goes to show you that it was an ARTIFICIAL SUPERIORITY whites had given themselves. Give a Black man education and he can excel even to the level of the greatest minds the world has ever seen;;; give a monkey or a baboon or a gorilla a grade one book and it will never learn to read it even after years.

    • מלך גורו

      Employer has the right to choose who to employ. Black, white, woman, disabled,

  • Bird Eye Chilli

    Any form of racism must be denounced with the contempt it deserves. I have actually noticed that even here in Zimbabwe, there are still places where you are shown all the signs that a person of your skin color wasn’t quite expected should you pitch up. However, I must commend the majority of our white Zimbabweans who took the decision to live in harmony with Blacks, do business with Blacks, socialize with Blacks and see us all as equals as well as impart that attitude to their children.
