The BBC's obsession with identity politics

The BBC's obsession with identity politics

Postby Ray of Sunshine » Thu Aug 09, 2018 11:52 am

Has become ridiculous now, there's sometimes 2 or 3 stories a day like this now on their news site, these most recently:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/get-inspired/44533717
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-45109922
https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/newsbeat-45116383

The British left and the British left-wing media have made a huge error in adopting this divisive American college agenda as it was this that catapulted Trump to power.

Looking at the comments on the cricketers story it's making British people angry as well.

And it's just not relevant to this country.

"Journalists" at the BBC are just copying American sites like Huffington Post and Buzzfeed and are giving no thought at all to the British context.

I'm glad I don't give them any money.

Trying to be overly ALL inclusive perhaps?

Nah it's identity politics/ intersectionality, breaking people into groups rather than bringing people together.

The BBC as the national broadcaster should be bringing people together.

The article on cricket should have been why young people in general and particularly working-class young people are no longer interested in cricket, instead they make it about race.

Wasn’t Ruby Rose, Batwoman, in Orange is the new Black?
Good series for diversity that one.

Do people watch TV series for diversity?

Actually since we're talking BBC I've noticed the dramas they and other British broadcasters produce that have prison scenes there is actually LESS diversity than in real British prisons ( the remake of Porridge being one example).

This is directly opposite to their usual approach like in Dr Who where whatever time period the Doctor visits there are always loads of minorities even when there weren't many or any at all in reality.

Dr Who? When is the new female Doctor appearing? It seems we are being made to wait eons!

It's probably not a great idea for Ray to slag off his own propaganda source.

Nothing on Radio 4 is right-wing.
