Default BBC bans white people from applying for £18,000 trainee job

[BBC bans white people from applying for £18,000
trainee job to work on Springwatch
and The One Show sparking discrimination row after
BBC is advertising a one-year trainee
production management role in Glasgow
The position is 'only open to black, Asian and
ethnically diverse candidates'

Positive discrimination is illegal but
'positive action' is allowed for trainee roles]


This will not be debated on BBC AM.


https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...ainee-job.html



[BBC director general Tim Davie
has said that the lack of diversity among
its top-paid stars means the
broadcaster 'has more work to do' on the issue]



Typical of the BBC

There's nothing positive about racist discrimination.

If it was an apprentice or just a minimum wage position it would be almost excusable, but proper jobs shouldn't have racial barriers.

I wish I was black. I would have been a multi millionaire by now with all the opportunities that would have been thrown my way.

For a position like this why bother restricting applications? If you have a preference in mind for the selection then just make that selection . I can see the argument for “wasting people’s time” but for an unpaid trainee position I don’t think that’s a huge concern. Just be clear from the outset that there are expected to be a lot of applicants, which should avoid getting anyone’s hopes up too high.

Both? There are more than two races. Black people can be racist against Indians, who can be racist against Chinese ... Who can all be racist against whites.

There's no both ways about it, anyone can be either a perpetuator or victim of racism.

It's not about being racist against honkys. It's the opposite in fact because the crackers are over represented in most industries, so trying to find a bit of balance from a cross section of all British communities isn't racist.

I don't remember seeing this kind of outrage when Muslim, Indian, or African names aren't even given interviews.

It's about over representation, not discrimination.

Why does race need to be highlighted though? I mean, by law of averages more white people will apply for most jobs based purely on the fact the the UK population is over 80% white.

We may look somewhat different on the outside, but on the inside we're the exact same. Isn't that what it should be about? Equal, never treated lesser, never treated more than, equal.

Im not outraged or anything, the BBC get to do what they like, it's their Corporation they can hire who they like, i just don't see this as progression. The opposite in fact.

Logic would say hire the best person for the job, no matter race.

Because history and experience have proved that best person for the job doesn't really exist a lot of the time, and studies have shown that using the exact same CV but with different names yields different results. Maybe their last 15 trainees were white dudes, so are looking to add different experiences into the mix.
