    Algerian born Salim Zakhrouf (38), a Muslim airport worker, has accused Cathay Pacific airline of racism, after he was denied an interview, only to be offered one two days later when he applied again, using a fake British sounding name.
    Zakhrouf had applied to Cathay Pacific for a job as a passenger services officer at the Heathrow Airport.
    He had been informed via email that he had not been selected for interview, but applying 48 hours later as Ian Woodhouse, with the same CV and home address, he was invited for the interview by the same officer who had refused him earlier, The Daily Mail reports.

    This is pretty much par for the course in the US, and of course has been partially prevalent in the UK since as far back as I can remember.
