London Transport Advertises Paid Position for People of ‘Non-White Heritage’
Kurt Zindulka, Breitbart, May 20, 2023
A paid position advertised for the Transport for London government department has sparked outrage over its requirement that candidates come from “non-white heritage”.
In an advert for an 11-month Stuart Ross Communications Internship at Transport for London (TfL), which comes with a salary of £21,824 , has been branded as “racist” for excluding native white British people from consideration.
“Learn the essential skills you need to start your career in industries like public relations, public affairs or marketing environment,” the job listing said.
Under the requirements section, the government ad stated: “You must be of Black, Asian and minority ethnic background, defined as having some African, Afro-Caribbean, Asian or other non-white heritage.”
The apparent discrimination from a London governmental body received widespread backlash, with Brexit leader Nigel Farage exclaiming: “End racist adverts!”
“Systemic racism exists and it’s anti-white,” Scottish comedian and GB News contributor Leo Kearse added.
