BBC’s Newsbeat have advertised an opening for a Trainee Multi-Media journalist – but its only open to people from a “black, Asian or non-white ethnic minority background”.
As made clear on the ‘Creative Access’ website: “This traineeship is only open to candidates from a black, Asian or non-white ethnic minority background.”

It is disgusting in modern day Britain to see such blatant racism, with people excluded from opportunities because of the colour of their skin. Allowing people who may come from a privileged background to apply for roles but freezing out other disadvantaged youngsters back of their ethnicity is not progress, it is bloody ridiculous.
