    ‘Black Power’ Play At BBC?


    According to The Times last week, there’s been a huge fuss created on behalf of a so-called ‘champion of diversity’ eager to win a powerful position at the BBC!

    Like, we don’t have plenty already?

    . …

    But curiously, such is the commitment to ‘diversity,’ of those making the most fuss, like Lenny Henry…

    .

    Sir Lenny Henry signed the letter to the chairman of the BBC, Richard Sharp

    Lenny Henry

    ==

    …that only ‘influential black figures‘ have been invited to add their names to the arrogant pronunciamento sent to the chairman of the BBC!

    Isn’t that racial discrimination?

    This epistle excluding non-blacks is all about getting a top job at UK Pravda for a man named Mark Ryder.

    Disturbingly, the individuals agitating on this…

    “…black executive’s* behalf are not even claiming the top job was denied him because of his colour!

    Allegedly, he missed out because he’s a notorious agitator who’s been ‘campaigning for more diversity in broadcasting.

    As if we don’t have more than enough already, BBC shoving Black History Month in our faces almost daily..

    ….

    …with no ‘History Month’ heard of for the people of Ulster, Wales, Scotland…

    ..

    ….or even Olde England!

    Poor Marcus Ryder, ‘was not appointed as executive editor of Radio 1 and Asian Network’s news bulletins! ‘

    So?

    He made ‘the final round of interviews, ‘ we’re told, as have many of us, for many different kinds of jobs, I’m sure…

    BUT….

    Sources said concerns were expressed because of Ryder’s record as a prominent champion of diversity.’

     ‘Sources? ‘

    Who?

    I couldn’t care less about Mark Ryder’s desperation to advance his career, but given what the report says, that he’s infamous for his efforts to advance ‘diversity,’ he certainly should not be given a publicly funded platform to do so.

    Millions of Brits are sick and tired of hearing that damn ‘diversity’ word.

    But not Sir Lenny Henry, who seems to have been a stalwart comrade of Ryder…

    …and his comrade letter-writers, who have racialised the case, with their exclusion even of white leftist signatures, viz.

    The open letter reads:

    “As journalists, producers and freelancers of colour we are dismayed and concerned…

      I just do not understand why people migrate to Britain, settle and bring up children here and then those children, or geandchildren, expect to have a separate history celebrated as if they don’t want to be part of our history.

      On the other hand, do they?
      I think many ‘black’ British people feel British. A lot of them join the armed forces and serve their country. All this race nonsense may come from bad teachers and of course the BBC incites racial conflict by glorifying BLM.
      Some of us hqve been talking about this and cannot understand why it has been allowed to get as bad.
      Both education and public broadcasting are paid for by taxes so if we had a government that cared about things like this, the sources of the trouble could be investigated and brought under control.
