York City Mayor Michael Helfrich on Monday said he is leaving city jobs open for minorities and “pushing away” white applicants.

At a Black Lives Matter protest in front of the York City Police Department on Monday, Helfrich addressed a crowd of about 30 people — and urged minorities to apply to open positions in the city so their voices could be heard.

“I call it the incubator,” he said of the effort to foster talent.
