The British Broadcasting Company did a recruitment drive. Whites needn't apply fine aslong as its positive discrimination. Is the BBC racist? Can discrimination be positive?

  • Umm...Yeah...It's rather straight forward

    There's no such thing as 'positive discrimination'. Who keeps making up these dumb*** terms; just as bad as 'reverse racism'.

    Pure and simple, you're hiring and excluding others based on race. Anything else you try to add to that argument is simply BS, and all you would be driving at is a form of justification for being discriminatory.

    Here's a f***ing thought... Hire based on 'first come, first serve' for whomever meets the job requirements. In doing so, if that company or whatever happens to end up as mostly a particular type of race...So be it. That's simply how the cards fell. When you start thinking 'oh, there's too many whites or whatever race, let me hire only other races so I don't appear discriminatory'...That is in fact being discriminatory. Not to mention just plain stupidity.

    I mean holys***... Can no one do the math? What about having logic? So let me get this straight... The goal is to have every entity, organization, whatever, have representation of all cultures/races. ...Even though some cultures/races may be considered a minority in a particular geographic area. So, if there's less of a certain culture/race in an area...How do we get equal representation in everything??? Please, someone tell me how those numbers would work out. Let's just ignore the fact your 'bean counting' races in order to play the race card. If that's what you want, then please tell me again...How are you going to ensure the population demographics are exactly proportional and what are your proposals to control such a scenario? Wait! Let me grab some popcorn...It's been awhile since I've seen good entertainment. Dumb***es...

  • Yes this sounds Racist

    Its never right to deny someone a job opportunity based off their skin color, job opportunities should be based off race, they should be based on who is the most qualified and who will do the best work.

    Being denied work because of your race is the very definition of racism.

  • We reached a new low...

    "Positive discrimination". Let that sink in. Does that sound wrong to you? It should. No matter what your opinion is, two wrongs do not make a right. This is absolutely the wrong way to diversify a workforce. Hire based on merit. Your company could suffer and you're not making the world a better place. You only create more racists this way.

  • Yes the BBC are racist

    They are racist because they told white candidates that
    they will not be able to apply because of there skin colour.
    Classic example of racism right there. Because of its blatant
    racism they spin it as positive discrimination. Which is a week
    argument as any forward thinking person would surely agree
    discrimination can only be a negative thing.

  • They aren't racist.

    Racism is a state of mind. Do they feel that one race is better or worse? No, in fact they want more diversity. Sounds like they have very few minorities that work there and they want to correct it. Clearly this can not be done without taking some kind of action.

    Tho discrimination and racism often go hand in hand, one does not always mean the other. For instance, if a person was racist, but didn't use his views in hiring, he would not be guilty of discrimination but still be a racist. On the other hand, even tho the BBC wants to hire people based on race (non-white), they do not consider white people any better or worse so it is not racism.

This is a trick question, you're asking 2 different questions.

1) Is the BBC racist?
2) Can discrimination be positive?

Which is the real question on which the sides are being picked?
