I can be opposed to the pathetic cancel attempt on leo and still support diversity.
I work at tsn and tbh....all the diversity is in front of the camera. Some ppl refer to this as "token diversity". It certainly isnt as diverse BEHIND the camera where the majority of jobs are. And our tv broadcasting programs in college are FILLED with ethnic minorities so it's defintely not a lack of interest.
It should also
In my humble opinion....the main culprit is nepotism which is WIDESPREAD in the tv industry in general. Almost everyone in their 20s or 30s is someone's neice or nephew or son or daughter or some other relation to an older employee. Because of this....the racial demographics of the workplace end up looking more like the 50s or 60s, before the waves of inmigration into the country. If you get the nepotism under control....it should impact the lack of diversity behind the camera.
It should also be noted....the tv industry is dying. It used to take 20 to 25 ppl to put a show to air. With automation....now they can do it with 5 to 10. If you have teenage kids or relatives who are interested on TV....i'd strongly recommend you'd mention. It was hard enough to break into the industry on 90s/00s. Now there's even more ppl competing for far fewer opportunities. It's a dubious career path at this point. Not impossible....but i'd think twice about young ppl pursuing it.
There's only one raptor media figure who i think has kinda opportunized socio-poltics to further their career. And i'm not even sure that's necessarily a bad thing. I'm more about not chopping ppl down than i am about whining about a person's success. There was no reason to get rid of rod black. And cancel attempts on ppl because they are white males are the domain of resentful, angry losers in life.
Lets prop ppl up. Not chop them down. I think almost all the new female hires for raptor tv have been good. There's only one that i kinda roll my eyes at.
The issues with the "truck" in Raptor broadcasts are purely issues of competence then.
