Close The Beeb!

Yasmin Alibhai-Brown is worried:
Last week I was contacted by apprehensive black and Asian staff working across the BBC – from journalists to support staff, including one of those many silent tea ladies. Most were fearful that in the imminent mass sacking, they would be the first ones to be cast out.
At first I thought that she was simply trying to stir up some racial aggro in order to make sure that her friends weren't affected by the proposed BBC cuts, but I have now decided to take her very seriously, because as the rest of her article shows it isn't as if she is in a habit of making preposterous squeals of 'racism'. The BBC is run by white racial supremicists who will try to ethnically cleanse the organisation if they get the chance, clearly we must shut it down.

Well, it is her paid job, after all....

She is one of those few lucky people whose jobs are also their hobbies.

My impression is that any and every program had to have it's quota or more,of ethnics, at all costs. I was amazed to see a black man in the Robin Hood series recently, honestly. Hilarious or what? And not a bit part either. In the BBC only the white male is subject to racism.
