Fail of The Day: Newspaper Ad Looking For Nurse Includes 'No Haitians'

What century are we living in again?

A newspaper ad in New York is causing outrage because of two words that were included, a harsh reminder of discrimination many people still face when applying for jobs.

'No Haitians' the newspaper ad states, looking for a "laid back nurse."

Berthilde Dufrene, Founder of the Haitian American Nurses Association of Rockland County, addressed the controversy in a Facebook post.

"This is not just a disrespect of the Haitian nurses, but disrespect for the nursing discipline and the entire community that have benefited from the services and care provided by the Haitian nursing professionals," she wrote.

New York Senator David Carlucci has said he will ask local and federal departments to start an investigation into the ad.

The company who posted the ad, Interim HealthCare, has not released a statement. But the corporate Twitter account obviously had better things to talk about...like shoehorns.
