A refugee from West Africa who settled in Wales 10 years ago is accusing  Virgin Atlantic of racial discrimination after his application for a call centre  job was rejected.

Max looks VEX.

Well this is shocking news. I thought that by employing Usain Bolt to be the “face” of  Virgin Media that black folk were welcome to work across all Virgin brands.

Richard Branson needs to stop frolicking on the beach with the likes of Kate Moss and Kate Winslet on Necker Island and fly his backside over to Swansea ASAP!

On a serious note organisations have been pulling this stunt for YEARS and keep getting away with it.

I wish Max the best of luck with this case. This is going to be interesting.
