Breitbart -- White Candidates Banned from Applying for Job at BBC, Where Ethnic Minorities Already Over-Represented
'...Far from being underrepresented, the BBC’s Equality Information Report for 2017 showed that black and minority ethnic (BME) people make up 14.5 per cent of the corporation’s workforce, while comprising less than 13 per cent of Britain’s population at the 2011 census. -- While the BBC claims the drive for greater diversity is to ensure its workforce “reflects the UK”, the company has committed to engineering “a workforce at least as diverse, if not more so, than any other in the industry”. -- To this end, it promised that by 2020 at least 15 per cent of its staff will be non-white, and that eight per cent will be LGBT, while the latest ONS data shows around four per cent of people in Britain identify as LGBT. -- Under the Equality Act 2010, it became lawful for employers to engage in “positive action”, which Citizens Advice describes as taking “steps to help certain disadvantaged groups access employment or training”.'

Donald Trump’s Eternal Feud With Blackness
“Uppityness” is today recognized as a slur, and how it got that way is instructive in explaining Trump’s rise to power. Back when the lives and career prospects of black people were officially constrained by the state, and when social and cultural hierarchies were enforced on pain of death, black people who dared aspire to a life and world beyond those constraints were often branded with the label. The maintenance of those hierarchies depended on making examples of the outspoken and the ambitious. Though the implements have changed from the braided whips of the past to the verbal upbraidings of the present, the purpose of attacking uppity blacks has always been to reinforce the status quo and limit mobility, in all senses of that word.

He may have little appetite to master policy or struggle to manage his office, but Trump is a savant when it comes to knowing how to harness white resentment and hostility towards outspoken people of color.
