Ii must admit I was annoyed when I had to pay the BBC LIcence this year but I have just read about their Director of Diversity who is paid a pittance for her work .Look it up and I am sure you will agree.

Has anyone else noticed anything odd about the people in the TV adverts ? The people in the adverts are supposed to be us, British People. If these adverts are to be believed then the British people are about 50% black or BAME.

Yet the actual figures are 3% black and about 13% BAME.

The advert families are also interesting, it seems most families these days are of mixed race marriage. The children of these marriages are also odd, sometimes white, sometimes black, and occasionally one black and one white.

The reality is that mixed race marriages (as opposed to partnerships) are quite rare, and additionally mixed race marriages with children are extremely rare.

What they are doing is promoting mix race marriages/relationships. If you see one black and one white child with a mixed race couple, the black child will be younger giving you the message (that for whatever reason) the white woman was with a white man hence the white older child but she is now with a black man. Go on google and type in happy white woman. Brainwashing at its best.

Are we being brainwashed?

I have to agree with previous contributors.
I look at BBC and find a far greater number of "ethnic" reviewers, announcers etc than their percentage in the population.
That would be fine if they were of a higher quality but to my mind that is not the case.
This is mot factual but we feel that we were not racist before but the above makes us possibly a little more racist.
Announcers and others should be appointed purely by merit. (That also goes for managerial staff and others). When one thinks of Moira Anderson and many others who twenty or more years ago were appointed because they were truly of quality you wonder why they now need to be any different.

Director of diversity = less white people (who may be better qualified) just to tick a box to convince audience of over achievement.

"Diversity" is just another way to create racial division. And as I'm against racism, I'm not going to fund it. Dismantled aerial. Cancelled the fee.
