image for BBC Seeks Minority Employees
For now, only white people are visible on the BBC

In response to catterwalls of criticism, the BBC has launched a hiring campaign to diversify its image.

British broadcasting executive in charge of diverse hirings, Lord Nigel Coloreds-Conqueror announced that persons of all colours and backgrounds will be considered for employ at the corporation:

"We are sincerely seeking blacks and tans, yellows, and browns. There are many fine jobs at the BBC for these folks. We have opened up janitorial and mailroom positions, galore! I started at the bottom with a knighthood at my birth and worked my way up to Lord before I wuz fuzzy down under!"

When asked when the bbc will have persons of colour in on-camera positions, Lord c-c seemed speechless. Finally recovering from his long, silent pause the Lord replied: "Until we have coloured telly it would be foolish to put a coloured on camera, wouldn't tit?!"He smartly remarked with a triumphalistic glare.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
