Cllr Sara Duncan said: “Alliance strongly supports Anti-Racist Workplace Week.
“I commend such awareness raising programmes and I hope this one will help to eradicate this disgusting aspect of society here.
“On Saturday morning, I was informed of racist graffiti on School Road, off Saintfield Road, and I reported it to police. I am absolutely disgusted by this and hope that police make progress in finding those responsible for the graffiti.
“For too long prejudice has disgracefully been allowed to flourish in Northern Ireland. Racism must be tackled head-on and must be stamped out as a matter of urgency.”
