    Default Agency withdraws casting call for CBC show that specified Ďany race except Caucasianí

    Oh dear.

    A casting call to hire a new CBC host that specifically said white people need not apply has been withdrawn, with the casting agent offering apologies for the mistake.

    The original ad for the host of a childrenís show, posted on the casting agencyís website under a CBC logo and on Craigslist, said: ďPlease only submit [an audition tape] if you match the following criteria: Male between the ages of 23-35 years; Any race except Caucasian.Ē...

    ďWe were asked to seek a cast of diversity. We mistakenly took that to mean that the production was not seeking Caucasian actors. This was a mistake that was made entirely by the casting company.

    They made a mistake, acknowledged it and apologised. This is a truly shyte thread yet it's still better than the peurile one about 'saying something about the previous poster' thread. It's also better than the 'rapist-condom' fiasco. I genuinely don't know if I'm still here out of habit or because I'm getting a kick out of watching the demise of the site. Jaysus, I think I'm a rubber-necker!

    I don't understand the point you're trying to make - and I'm being pretty generous in crediting you with having a point, on the strength of that OP.

    Is this a thread about Canadian casting companies maybe?
    I am in line for a smiting probably sooner than I expect. Apparently.

    I read the article and you really have to love how they are still sticking on the racial diversity of Canada. FFS Canada is 80% white and they were the ones being excluded.

    Let's check back here soon when we find out who actually gets hired.

    True dah. Canada's multi-culturalism prior to this earth-shattering event was held up as a beacon of integration and humans getting along with humans. Now, because of this extraordinarily relevant story, Canada's multi-cultural success is ruined forever. No more of those pesky Canadian companies offering excellent jobs with superb perks to every available worker worldwide. And all because a casting company made a booboo. Good, insightful post there, Dame Enda.

    Sun TV has some good coverage of the mask slip moment, and the CBC is well known for its liberal antics in the past:

    Apparently, sock-puppets are treated badly too so if I was you I'd keep my head down.

    Simply untrue. Try again.

    Not exactly everyone's definition of "success".
    Hmmm. And I thought it was originally a native's settlement. Oh well, socksters are always better informed than anthropology, sociology, history, geography, evolution and most especially, the poster they originally were before said poster was made shyt of too many times to retain a shred of credibility.

    Toronto has already crossed the line, and Vancouver is not far behind:

    Toronto is majority white. You've obviously never set foot in it or you'd know that.
