The BBC again: ‘No whites need apply’

    The BBC are at it again exploiting loopholes in equality law that allow them to advertise jobs specifically not for white people.

    Got me thinking, I wonder could you just turn up at the interview and claim to identify as the race they’re looking to hire? It worked for Rachel Dolezal for a few years.

    From the article: “Earlier this year, the BBC published its Diversity And Inclusion Plan, with a commitment to ensure its workforce comprises 50 per cent women, 20 per cent black and ethnic minority and 12 per cent disabled, to better reflect UK society” ...which will inevitably lead to people showing up identifying as a woman, identifying as BAME or claiming a hidden disability just to nail the job.

    How can people ever show that they’re more than just a Diversity hire if they didn’t have to compete on the open market for a job?

    How white are we talking here? Is there a dulux colour chart?

    Life is just getting harder and harder for white people

    How will the BBC decide who is too white to apply? Blood tests? Skull measurements?


    Blood and soil will be the metric :pac:

    White people: Always the victim, it's never their fault.

    Do you support employment discrimination based on race? Yes or no?

    Nothing new there. The Daily Mail offers a similar, albeit slightly better-paid, scheme.

    cherrypicked occupation must meet cherrypicked ratio.

    or ... boooo?


    doesnt apply to all occupations of course.
    you wouldnt find this applied to heart surgeons or high court judges.

    because society would laugh you out the door.

    What if I'm white but identify as brown?

    This term was hardly mentioned on boards only a few year ago, yet now it is common, which shows how racially radical people have gotten in a short period of time. If you don't like white people, even if you are one, maybe you should move to Africa or the Middle East? Europeans don't have to tolerate this nonsense, especially in our own continent.

    In what way, compared to people who aren't white?

    Surely the "whites" can apply for the other 80% of jobs that are set aside for the non blacks.....


  • Registered Users Posts: 19,802 ✭✭✭✭ suicide_circus


    I think i've said this before but what the hey...

    When i watched Lethal Weapon as a kid, it honesly didnt occur to me that Mel Gibson was white and Danny Glover was black. I experienced their characters as Mel Gibson being the crazy suicidal one and Danny Glover the jaded "too old for this sh1t" one. Race played no part it in it whatsoever, they were partners. If that movie were made today, race would probably be the central theme and that's sad. We're going backwards here.

    Europeans did it to every other continent on Earth. About time the chickens came home to roost.

    It's usually the "one-drop rule". Because they are racist as absolute ****.

    And people should make no mistake—the useful idiots who are eager to **** on "the whites" today because it's considered acceptable and they're au fait with that, will just as easily turn their ire on any other skin colour should it become "the done thing" in five, or ten, or fifty years, when their racial identitarianism comes home to roost.

    Take names. Never forget what they did in this moment.

    It's racist towards both white people and black people, a rare feat.

    So it's time for modern Europeans to pay for the sins of a tiny fraction of their great great great grandfathers? A kind of blood libel if you will?

    No sir, discrimination on the basis of race is bad.

    Because Europeans are a homogenously white people, from the Iberian peninsula to the wastes of Siberia, and from the Scottish Highlands to Thrace; One people, one colour.

    It is indeed yes. Europeans went to these countries and promoted minority positive discrimination in high end jobs, civil service and ownership of natural resources.

    Having a few jobs in the bbc for minorities shouldn't be an issue, but white nativists are so insecure it's an outrage.

    Edit:
    So as not to defame you i will correct my statememt to read;

    Do you realise you are espousing racism?


  • Registered Users Posts: 336 ✭✭ EnzoScifo


    Do you realise that you are in fact a racist?

    Do you realize that you are parroting white supremacist talking points on an internet forum on a summer's sunday afternoon. Time for a rethink of your life?

    I assume this is rhetorical but no I cannot. I assume there is some medical criteria and objective test to satisfy the status of "disabled" though. I am shocked that so many people are disabled. Like how are they all getting so badly hurt?

    Sins of the father. We're really going backwards under the guise of progress. In frankess, I pity people with your mindset, as you're full of hatred and spite like no other, and that must be hellish to live with.

    You want vengeance against a whole race, yet you're telling others to look at their lives :pac:

    Why do you think you have to "get hurt" to be disabled?

    I think your idea of what a disabled person is wildly twisted

    13.5% of Irish society are disabled
