Feckless Farrow Frets: Does Black Director Count Toward 'Diversity' Given He's British?

Reading the transcript isn't enough. Roll the video, listen carefully, and at the end you'll catch Ronan Farrow's nervous little laugh as he asks an African-American guest whether, in assessing movie-industry diversity, it "matters" that the black director whose film has been nominated for an Oscar is British.
Such are the PC pitfalls once one wades into the bog of diversity bean-counting. But beyond the specific subject matter, Farrow's teensy twitter suggests, as other critics have noted, as here and here, how young and unsure of himself is the young man MSNBC hopes to make a star.

I have met liberals who actually think that most British folks of African descent are not actually “Black” or that they are “sell-outs” because they don’t embrace inner city gangster ghetto culure.

Ronan should immediately give up his job to an underprivileged minority.

No, Furrow, it only counts if he plays a round of Knockout King on your empty noggin.
