    "A caller from Dublin said white people are becoming an endangered species"

    Come on now caller from Dublin.
    'white people are on the verge of extinction' sounds better I think.

    What do you mean? How should they have advertised it?
    They shouldn't have made the restriction public. It's pretty acceptable given the nature of the role that a 'certain demographic' was going to be successful, but they shouldn't have said from the off that other people wouldn't be successful.

    But I come from of a background of an industry where equal opportunities actively doesn't apply, so I guess I don't count :rolleyes:

    Look at the number of women or ethnic minoiries in Parliament( biggest example I can think of).
    I'm not prepared to sift through 400 plus names and faces so if you could provide a link that would be great.

    I don't think Parliament has a race issue, it is a class issue. How many of those MPs do you think are from working class backgrounds?

    True. But as it's BBC publicly funded...the public ought to know.

    'Targeted Recruitment'? Just because you give it a name doesn't make it morally right.I think it's common knowledge that the BBC have quotas in place, but many will be shocked to realise that some positions are seemingly 'off limits' to people because of the colour of their skin.
    It's one way of preventing institutional racism - recruiting ethnic minorities is a good thing: it enables minorities to have a level playing field and increase their social mobility. If that means putting in place quotas to help them then fair enough.

    Seriously?

    As a result of the 2011 census the White British population was estimated 51,736,290 (81.9% of the UK total population).
    Sounds like a real 'endangered species'.

    Why have you started a whole new thread on this when theres already been one running for several days. Its not the BBC advertising its an initiative by a charity called creative access who are sponsoring some apprenticships/internships for under represented ethnic minorities to try and get into creative industries.

    They are allowed to take this under the positive action provisions in s159 and s160 of the Equalities Act 2010. Such a misrepresentation of what the story is.
    Didn't realise there was another thread. Yeah as a previous poster noted I didn't realise the role in which it was for, that does somewhat help me understand the thinking behind it.

    I understand why you have come up with that point, but let's look at it from another angle. It's quite patronising to suggest that ethnic minorites won't get a job on their own merit so they need a 'helping hand'. Not saying you are suggesting that, but quotas and what not could be interpreted this way, don't you think?

    My reading of it is that it's the organisation Creative Access that has provided the internship, it just happens to be with the BBC. Therefore the money comes from CA, not the BBC.

    So the BBC being publicly funded is entirely irrelevant - it's not their vacancy.

    Exaggeration is often used to raise awareness of upcoming changes.

    It's at the BBC. That's different. Your link clearly indicated that it was the organisation 'Creative Access' that are advertising the role. Not the BBC.

    So what? Ethnic minorities are under represented and they are just facilitating a few opportunities(out of many hundreds) to address that.

    Are they underrepresented? I'm not accusing you of lying but do we know if they are?

    Do we have evidence that shows the racial demographic of BBC employees?
