One in seven BBC presenters and actors is to be black, Asian or minority ethnic within the next three years, it has been announced, as Lord Hall pledges to improve diversity.
Lord Hall, the director-general, has promised 15 per cent of on-air BBC staff will be black, Asian or minority ethnic (BAME) by 2017, along with one in ten managers.
Critics have already condemned the policy as absolutely ridiculous, claiming recruitment should be conducted irrespective of race and without the PC tokenism that makes peoples blood boil.
Speaking at the BBCs Elstree Studios, Lord Hall promised the corporation aimed to be beyond reproach on diversity issues, as he announces a new group of advisors including comedian Lenny Henry, athlete Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, and broadcaster Baroness Floella Benjamin.
He has now confirmed a set of targets for the BBC, to be fulfilled over the next three years.

The Idiocracy Strikes Again
“Lord Hall pledges to improve diversity”
That should fix everything and make you feel really good, m’ Lord.
Unless, of course, the mohammedans demand that 100% of characters portrayed be middle easterners under their definition of sharia law, in which you had better comply or else lose your head.
Diversity. You may be what’s for dinner.
These numbers are low compared to the number of tokens with which we’re deluged in the northeast here in the US. Then again, soon there won’t be anyone left here that looks like me or my family anyway.
Wonder if Jerry Rivers will put in a app for the job?.
Wonder if Joan will?
I don't know about 'minority' status but she is certainly...singular.
One wonders if they will also be required to run commercials and PSAs that portray blacks as superior to whites, like in this country.
and it makes the BBC Boring
WOW! White liberals, black liberals, Asian and minority ethnic liberals. So much “diversity”... /s
There are 3 guys who are white and the hosts on “Top Gear” which is the BBC’s most popular program worldwide. Will one of them be replaced by someone who is black, asian or whatever is a minority ethnic person?
Already every film made in Britain includes blacks, I was surprised to learn that they are even now only 3% of the population.
