This is what I don't get why do they want to be in films and on magazines just as much as white people when they only make up a small percentage of the population. I am part poc myself but I just can't add up these numbers

Where has anyone said the BAME community want 50% representation?? They literally just want some, yet the minute an advert appears with an all-black family everyone loses their minds

lol they're never all black, they usually stick a white dude in there as the husband. It used to be white wife and black husband, but that's not pc enough anymore. It makes me cringe tbh how many mixed/black families are on adverts when it doesn't represent the true make-up of this country. And of course Chinese and other races get side-lined.

Read it and weep. Plus I rounded up the figures, black + mixed black barely makes 5%

The latest Sainsburys Christmas advert features an all-black family, all you have to do is a quick search on Twitter to see how outraged people are. Banging on about how a family like that can't possibly represent them whilst not saying a word about similar adverts featuring a family of carrots :rolleyes: relating more to a literal vegetable than someone from a different race :lol:

(I do agree about other races being sidelined though)

I don’t really care but I remember reading in the Times that poc and LGBT people are over represented on British TV.

Reason? I think a company would rather be accused of being over representative than not representative enough.

Does it really matter?

Also, your stats are... interesting. I'd love to see a link to your source!

Why is that? I should just accept that black people should be seen on tv as much as white even though that makes no sense considering this is 90% white country.

You need to show the data that back up your claims or you keep quiet. There is no evidence whatsoever that shows black or BAME people wanting 50% representation or even have 50% representation.

I know this is TSR and you are anonymous but it must be really sad to be on your own with these types of thoughts.

Do better, be better.
