Rental advertisement in Puerto Rico denounced for discrimination: “No Canarians, no Moroccans”
An advertisement for a rental flat in the highly desirable resort area of Puerto Rico de Gran Canaria has been publicly denounced as “racist and discriminatory”. The advertisement was listed on a well-known online web portal offering an apartment in the south of Gran Canaria, however specified that they did not want offers from Canarians or Moroccans. Although the advertisement specifically said in capital letters “NO CANARIOS, NO MARROQUÍES” it seems the advertiser was more than happy to accept pets, without any discrimination on the breed or type of animal allowed. The offer was apparently published by a “professional” account holder on the site.
“Apartment for rent in Puerto Rico and with parking. Animals are allowed and demonstrable economic solvency is requested. NO CANARIANS, NO MOROCCANS. The price is 650 euros, electricity and water” says the offer for a 1st floor space of 60 square meters.
The advertisement has now been removed, but was fully visible last week on the site.
