BBC turns down trainees because they are WHITE: Job applicants stunned to be told corporation only wants people from ‘ethnic minority backgrounds’

That’s nice.

  • Especially delicious when you consider that only libtards would apply there.

    • This is true, sorta like government jobs in Canada. Same thing happens.

        I was just going to write here… ever see government offices in Toronto? Most are office staffed by visible minorities

        • Clausewitz

          Go for your license or tags and all you see are women, 60% visible minorities. Hiring based on the make up of the population is never taken into account when non minorities are hired below their population representation.

        This has been going on for years. Back in the mid 90’s I was turned down for a gov’t job because I wasn’t a minority. Job required a very special degree and they turned down all applicants for being white males.

          Don’t think that the Unions no longer have nepotism or that Liberals don’t get relatives good paying jobs in the Government run Corporations.

          The scheme for H.R. to hire someone with ties to Politicians or Union bosses is to find some special skill or Certificate they have which 95% of the people applying would have.
          The Human Rights Code and Government rules to Post a job Publicly was done top appease minorities and it would shock me if Barbara Hall used this scam to get her friends or relatives cash-4-life jobs in the Public sector.

          The way it goes is that the applicant is tipped off for when the job posting will go up to get in early while the Qualifications for Educations and Skills will be tailored to them by some unique Degree that may be needed in the future .

          The way the Politicians or Gov Corporate Managers cover them self is to not get the relative a job within their sector of the Government . This takes an effort for Managers in the Public Sector to conspire to get each others child a job at the other Managers Office .
          Back in the 1970’s it was a badge of honour when I saw the children of the big shots at Toronto City Hall that got jobs in the Parks and Recreation for the summer , this , was made worse as they did about 60% as much work as others and got the same pay.


          As for the Government Offices in Toronto they ignore the Census canada data for Vis-Mins that are now still around 12% of the population but because of the Yonge street riot by blacks Barbara Hall is just fine with those Offices being 70% women or 30% vis-mins .
          The CBC makes it look like canada is 30% gay, 60% non-whites , 80% women and 70% immigrants with accents .

            I have a native friend who uses that used to use that as a pick up line “want to claim your native? i can help put a little mative in you.”

      What was insulting for me by the Bank Of Montreal was that they assume I was the White person from the old racists Canada raised in the 1960’s and was a heterosexual bigot homophobe.
      I was off work for a workplace injury right when the “Diversity” and BMO-PRIDE policy came in. After close to 23 years of hard work and un-paid over-time they wanted to get rid of me when I returned and claimed they were changes in the Department and HR didn’t have any jobs to match my skills.
      Manulife and BMO shared my medical information and set me up for a constructed dismissal where I was able to do some part-time work but BMO offered me a high Stress fill time position with lots over time and no period for a slow return to work.

      Here’s the insulting part . My father’s background is North American native and in 1942 he and 3 brothers enlisted for WW2 for the white man’s war even after the crap they took in the 1930’s and were kept out of good jobs.
      Seems like they didn’t see me as a Minority because I didn’t wear a costume with feathers and dance for them at the x.mas party or keep a sacred feather at my desk and a small totem poles paper weight.

      It’s now a legal issue for a Civil Suit and Employment laws because my Human Rights Complaint was dismissed since BMO share holders were funding the High Priced lawyer’s on King street to beat-up injured employees to paint them as malcontent’s at the Human Right tribunal hearing .
      This has cost me close to $200,000.00 so far and BMO share holders will be bilked for more money from their Dividends cheques as the law firm drags out the case to punish me.
      So far BMO has spent more than what my severance would have been , plus they now still owe me my pension I paid into but I wasn’t going to sell my cow to BMO for their hand full magic beans to go away .
      About 95% of the people I dealt with at BMO and Manulife were either young feminists or older women and yet NONE were non-whites.

      Nice one Bank Of Montreal , plus to make it worse my father was born on Quebec just South of Montreal .
      I still laugh when I see the photo of Barbara Hall’s Human Rights employment Award being given to BMO’s HR dept , this after they donated huge bags of money to the popular HRC causes.

      Toronto is NOT Canada, and once it’s a hell-hole like Detroit or iraq they will will only have them self to blame and have to wear the riots and torching of cars .

    Hiring people based solely on competence for a position – what a regressive and outdated idea.

    One has to wonder … when (and it probably is “when” not “if”) whites become a minority in British society, will certain jobs be set aside specifically for them? I rather suspect not.

      I’m thinking “Tootsie”. Will Dustin Hoffman be in a movie where he passes for black to get a job?

    Sounds as if they’re taking a leaf out of the CBC’s book. CBC posted a strangely similar job posting not that long ago.

    Nothing new here. Back in 1979 I interviewed for two jobs, then was told they had to interview everyone qualified, but they were told to hold out for a black person for the job. I’m white. That was in the U.S.A. in 1979.

    They should tell them that they are gay and charge them with homophobia for not hiring them.

  • Clausewitz

    The BBC is so far behind the times. Back in 83 I was working in radio and wanted to head back home to the GTA. As part of the process I took a resume down to the CBC (forgive me I was young and stupid). They claimed that they were not accepting resumes of any kind, no matter how much experience I had. Three days later on Saturday in the Globe and Mail appears a full page ad looking for visible minority applicants, no experience necessary, we will train. Nothing new once the government gets hold of the decision making procedures.
