'Any race except Caucasian'
American Thinker ^ | 5/1/2013

Posted on 05/01/2013 3:26:48 PM PDT by Altura Ct.

Oops! A casting call for a new host of a children's program on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, the taxpayer supported, government-owned television and radio network of Canada, accidentally told the truth, when it specified "any race except Caucasian." See for yourself:

Adrain Humphries of the National Post reports:

A casting call to hire a new CBC host that specifically said white people need not apply has been withdrawn, with the casting agent offering apologies for the mistake.

The original ad for the host of a children's show, posted on the casting agency's website under a CBC logo and on Craigslist, said: "Please only submit [an audition tape] if you match the following criteria: Male between the ages of 23-35 years; Any race except Caucasian."

A new version of the ad removes the race reference, but maintains the sex and age restrictions and that applicants "must be able to carry a tune," "ability to dance or move well is a bonus," and should be "not afraid to show a silly side," among others.

The excuses being made are all of the familiar variety: inclusion, not exclusion. The head of the casting agency which got the contract said:

"We were asked to seek a cast of diversity. We mistakenly took that to mean that the production was not seeking Caucasian actors. This was a mistake that was made entirely by the casting company.

"Of course, it's open to all ethnicities," she said.

Well, that’s two races.

Mongoloid and Negro.

This has been going on for a long time. It’s only noteworthy for it now being so entrenched that they feel comfortable stating it explicitly.

They still won’t hire whites, but they are no longer admitting that they plan to discriminate.

It’s not racism when it is directed at Caucasians, it’s Affirmative action!

I had two openings in my engineering department. I knew two qualified and available candidates, so I asked them to submit resumes. After two weeks, I hadn’t gotten anything from HR. I called one of the guys and he said that HR had told him he wasn’t qualified. I marched down to HR and said, he was qualified and I wanted to set up an interview. I was informed that they were not qualified I was going to hire a black candidate. (I hadn’t known this, but they were collecting resumes only from blacks.)

“Of course, it’s open to all ethnicities.

However, if you are white, you can apply all you want to and you aren’t getting a call. . .

Or maybe you will, and we’ll put in on the short list only to drop you for the fly black kid with the cool kicks. . .

You know, the gay one. . .”

Good luck.

So, they nixed “Caucasian” and replaced it with “Can sing and dance?” How screwed up is that? I’m surprised they didn’t add a reference to watermelons.....

That is hardly a mistake. The modern definition of diversity is exactly that: No whites.

The bigots show their true face. This has been going on for years especially wih any job associated with government employment. This fact was made explicitly clear to me when I attempted to be employed by local LE. To paraphrase “ Sorry pal no room at the inn for you ( Insert PC phrase here ) non-diverse white boy.

I hear Elmo's looking for a job working with children.

I used to work for a (very) large company where, when an applicant dropped off an employment application, the receptionist noted the presumed race and perceived age of the person.

That is incredibly racist.

I think that we just have to start calling these people racists. Exclusion of a race only because of their race, is the epitome of racism.

ethnicities aren’t races.

these people can’t even keep their racism straight.

note that my “straight” reference isn’t anything to do with homosexuals. If any are offended, however, please accept my most heartfelt “Grow Up and Get Over Yourself.”

“So....., WHAT happened???”

I interviewed a half dozen blacks from FAMU. (They were worthless, but that’s a different story.) I had to explain why I would not hire each candidate, which I did with approximatliy three pages each. I was instructed to hire one, regardless. I went to the company president and dragged the contracts manager with me. I pointed out the contract which required these jobs be done by x date. I explained that none of the candidates could do those jobs regardless of how long they were given. The president reluctantly allowed me to hire the two experienced candidates. (As I recall, they had to integrate test equipment into a single test stand and write the software to automate the testing. That’s not something you give to even a good student just out of school.)

"Of course, it's open to all ethnicities," she said.

Thus compounding the error. Most caucasians wouldn't know what ethnicity they are, or even if they have one.

The old saying, "when you find yourself in a hole, stop digging", would seem good advice here.

All this will be solved, of course, when white people are a minimal enough majority to be allowed to have community organizers. As of now, that is either illegal or not kosher.

Actually, we do have one or two. Jim Robinson is one. But our community organizers are radically different from the fraud-in-chief occupying the White Hut on occasion when not partying, vacationing, or playing golf or Reggie Love.

“This has been going on for a long time. It’s only noteworthy for it now being so entrenched that they feel comfortable stating it explicitly.”

100% correct. The anti-white contigent is getting more brazen because they are seeing that their racism has gone unchallenged for so long, and that anti-white racism is now being spoken aloud in the national media (see MSNBC). This will likely get worse before it gets better, and it will only get better when white people fight back instead of just politely taking it.

The ideal ‘kids’ PravdaKanada (CBC) TV personality would be a post-operative ‘male’ (no ‘Y chromosome), preferably with dark skin, who had both a male partner and a post-operative ‘female’ (WITH ‘Y chromosome) partner. This male (formerly female) would need to be part French Metis & Muslim, walk with a pronounced limp, and wearing a keffiyah. Prayers offered to Gaia, would help in the selection process. Being a CBC kids TV personality, paedophelia might be a desired quality, also. (sarc, but not too much!)

My tax dollars at work to support PravdaKanada! Not amusing.

It's troubling you had to go through that much trouble to make the only hire that would get your contract satisfied. HR departments just aren't in tune with business needs anymore....they just don't seem to "get" if the company fails to meet its contracts they go out of business. Then *everybody's* out of work, themselves included. Maybe they think that, because they're in the hiring business, they'll have a leg up when they go to a new company after destroying the old one with their PC bullcarp.

(As I recall, they had to integrate test equipment into a single test stand and write the software to automate the testing. That’s not something you give to even a good student just out of school.)

Darn tootin'. That's been my bread and butter for a few decades, now. The only place you learn that sort of thing is on a test floor, and if you can't teach yourself how to do it, you'll wash out.
