    NZ Business Says "We Don't Hire Blacks"

    A young student’s search for a job ended with a blunt email: "Sorry we don’t hire blacks, no offence meant".

    The racist reply stunned Albany student Julia Eru, 20, who says words can’t explain how horrible the email was.

    "It’s so offensive in so many ways," she says.

    "I thought that kind of stuff was in the past. The person needs to know it’s not right."

    Ms Eru had applied online for a retail job but got a surprise response.

    She sent a second email using her sister’s English name and the response was entirely different: "Hi honey, positions are now closed. Lots of love Andria."

    Ms Eru is part Maori and English. She studies hospitality management at the North Shore International Academy and is looking for part-time work.

    She says she got a further racist response when she replied to her original email in her own name, seeking someone to complain to.

    Ms Eru says she is still waiting for a reply to her complaint to the Gumtree website that ran the job ad, which remained online until it was taken down after the North Shore Times contacted them.

    The North Shore Times received a strange series of responses to questions put to the emailer.

    One email said a junior receptionist had acted inappropriately and had been fired. "All apologies to those concerned and God Bless."

    But another email read: "In the mean time kindly f*** off. Cheers Li Wu. The computer hacker."

    One email referred the North Shore Times to a website for Penrose-based importer and wholesaler Jin Bill International Ltd but the Companies Office website lists the company as having been struck off. It was registered until June 23 this year.

    Despite that a company director’s name, Fanmao Zeng, appears on emails sent to the North Shore Times from the bright startltd2002 address.

    The company did not respond to phone messages and there is no listing for the director.

    When the paper visited the Penrose address we were told the company hadn’t been operating for at least a year.

    Gumtree says it did not receive a complaint from Ms Eru and removed the job listing when it was reported.

    It says it treats all fraud, abuse or spam seriously and does its best to protect users and make visits to the site safe.

    Gumtree says the advert did not breach its policies but the subsequent abuse was "unacceptable".

    Gumtree? Is that not that Internet portal where you can advertise that you're either offering, or looking for, jobs and flats?

    Hmm, strange - I've seen hundreds of adverts on the Aberdeen page where people were looking for "An Indian flatmate" or "Room to let MUSLIMS ONLY" ... so how can that be allowed, but forbidding "Blacks" to be hired is not?

    Double-standards as usual.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    That is mental weakness at it's finest. People are so dishonest with themselves that they cannot even comprehend when somebody does not conform to status quo. The minds of children have been so stunted that they do not realize that there are people with different views. They do not realize that morals are subjective and that people could disagree with the majority. This girl is confronted with a deviation from the standard and her brain is exploding. These people are not prepared for the real world.
