Oh, I believe it. I was laid off from a job when a racist ass Irish guy (and I'm talking about was brought OVER from Ireland to take the position as new CEO) took over--he had no plausible reason either, just made ish up, and everyone knew he was talking out his arse, but there was nothing they could do about it. He didn't even have the balls to tell me so himself, he had this old man in his 60's tell me, it was a joke.
Bottomline, I was the only black face there, and he wanted his little White utopia; if he couldn't have that, the furthest he was willing to go was Asian or White-looking Hispanic.
Before I left, whenever anyone from the Ireland office would come over for a visit--the females were very sweet , friendly, and accepting, but the males treated me like I was some sort of abomination...to be honest, they only treated the only blonde in the office like solid gold. They were very very rude.
The only women working in their office overseas had red hair or blonde, and were all blue-eyed. I'm pretty sure the thought of hiring anything other than that made them faint.
I wouldn't visit Ireland if I won a round trip ticket, with all expenses paid. F*ck them all.
