What an unusual BBC news story this is about supermarket staff who
have to deal with customers who won't wear masks.

It's not the subject matter which attracts attention but that all
three supermarket workers illustrated are young white woman without
any over-representation of minorities. How unusual for the BBC.

Three white women is still in line with the "global pandemic - women most
affected" narrative.

If it had been a story about people behaving well, then the BAMEs would
have been over represented.

Most BBC staff, including nearly all the editorial staff, live and work
in the big cities of Britain, such as London, Birmingham and Manchester.

I think they do genuinely believe that the proportion of non-whites
they see around them is representative of the country as a whole, or at
the very least they have unconsciously absorbed that impression without
thinking about it.

Their leisure activities do not include visiting British gardens,
country towns, or God forbid, the seaside, so they never see that those
places tend to be 'hideously white', as Greg Dyke so memorably put it.

BAMEs already come with a tan...they don't need to go to the seaside.

As for gardens and country towns, what use are they without a KFC?

Half the black population of the UK lives in London, which means 1
in 6 Londoners is black. However most of the UK outside the big
cities is no more than 1 or 2 percent black.

As you say, metropolitan BBC journalists must see a skewed picture
every day although surely their own research would say otherwise.

You would think before spending £100m on "diversity" programmes, the
BBC would check to see how much this reflects the population at
large. The BBC's "Diversity and Inclusion Strategy" proclaims it
has more BAME employees than the national demographic.

I don't watch BBC or iPlayer, but if the BBC are making shows for
international distribution it probably makes sense to make them multi
ethnic.

Of course having said that, the world's favourite BBC show was Jeremy
Clarkson. I guess a grumpy, middle aged, bigot is more universal than
any woke ethnic stereotype the BBC can dream up.

The BBC's insidious influence in this regard goes beyond their own output.

I sat down to watch the Christmas edition of All Creatures Great and Small and was rather surprised to see James Herriot make a call to a farmhouse where the elderly farmer had a black wife.

Having read the books back in the seventies and having watched the first incarnation of ACGaS, I was fairly sure that there were no black people in either the books or the TV series.

A little digging revealed what had gone down;

The show's producer, a Colin Callender, had made a remark that caused the Mail to run a story titled “Did BBC pass up All Creatures revamp because it was too WHITE? Channel 5 rakes in record 3.3m viewers for new series after corporation felt it wouldn’t appeal to prized millennial audience”.

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8793537/Did-BBC-pass-Creatures-revamp-WHITE.html#:~:text=BBC%20bosses%20are%20refusing%20to,series%20is%20'too%20white'.&text=But%20the%20show's%20producer%20has,34%2Dyear%2Dold%20viewers.

A Radio Times interview (https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2020-12-08/all-creatures-great-and-small-producer-woke/) reveals Callender clearly shitting himself at the possibility of having drawn the displeasure of the BBC cash cow, by his remarks being used against them by their hated enemies at the Daily Mail;

"But at a press event ahead of the Christmas episode, Callender insisted this was no reason to attack the BBC.

Addressing the “journalists in the room”, he said: “I was very distressed to see how the show suddenly became a sort of political football and was being used as a way of showing what was wrong with the BBC. This is not a show about – this is not a story about the BBC thinking that All Creatures wasn’t woke enough to be made.”

Explaining that the rejection was an “editorial decision”, he said: “The BBC is under attack from all quarters, and the last thing I want is the success of this show to be used in some way as a weapon to attack the BBC.

“Shows like this, and the work that Channel 5 does, and all the public services will not survive without a healthy BBC. I think it’s very important for the audience and the public at large that that is the case.” "

In another interview (https://www.radiotimes.com/news/tv/2020-12-22/all-creatures-christmas-special-anne-chapman-cleo-sylvestre/) Callender feebly attempts to portray the black character's inclusion as legitimate;

"Executive producer Colin Callender says: “Andy Hay went out and began casting the role of Anne and he fell in love with Cleo Sylvestre, who was Black, and through conversations with her about her own story and her own mother’s story, that story found its way into the script. And Ben [Vanstone, the writer], took Cleo’s real story and wove it seamlessly into the episode. So there’s a very nice sort of example there of fiction really reflecting the real world.”

The last paragraph confirms that this particular producer has well and truly been brought into line;

"Callender, who recently hit out at claims that All Creatures was rejected by the BBC for not being ‘woke enough’, added: “Being able to cast truthfully but embracing diversity, whether it’s diversity in terms of the role of women, disabled people, and as we go forward in season two, Black stories and Black actors, that will all be part of our agenda as we go forward. But this episode was a particular joy.” "

Who is this being done for? I've never seen "All Creatures Great and
Small" but it doesn't seem to be the sort of thing blacks would make
a special effort to watch.

Perhaps it's being done by gullible whites to salve their conscience of
the guilt BLM has awoken in them.

Wikipedia's "early life" section is indeed often revealing.

By the way, I heard a young black woman call LBC at the weekend
saying she had been on a sensitivity training course for
anti-semitism. She was very enthusiastic about it and said how
amazed she was at how pervasive anti-semitic sentiment was and how
unconscious micro-aggressions against the Jews were happening all
the time.

I have absolutely no idea what training she went on, although it
seems strange to go on anything at all, which may reflect where she
works.

The point is, I'm still trying to work out how she sees the world.
Is she joining forces between two minorities: one very privileged
and the other not. Is she so throughly woke and gullible that she's
impressed by any alleged minority discrimination? Is she disowning
her own race? I'm still scratching my head.
