DJ Sideman says the BBC cannot push the competition issue 'under the carpet'.

The BBC can no longer push the issue of "under the carpet" competition, said DJ Sideman, who quit the organization in protest for using racist remarks in news reports this summer.The DJ said the BBC should improve diversity among senior managers and recommend racial sensitivity training to employees.He quit using 1Xtra in August when journalists repeatedly said racist language was used in a hit-and-run attack in Bristol.The report had 18,600 complaints.Initially, the BBC defended the decision to use the N-word, saying it had followed careful consideration and approval of the victims and their families.Sideman, whose real name is David White, announced that he was stepping down from the radio program at the incident on Aug. 8 in a statement, he said. "Action and prevention feel like a slap in the face of our community.A day later, Tony Hall, the BBC's general director, refuted the BBC's defense of the report and apologized for using the remarks.Every organization should be able to know when something goes wrong," he said in an email to staff.We built สล็อต one thing here, it's important for us to listen to - and learn, and that's what we're going to do next.The company subsequently strengthened its approach to the use of racist language, a new rule, "now there is an assumption that the language will not be used normally" unless a judgment is made at the administrative director level otherwise.


When asked what BBC bosses should do to avoid similar controversy in the future, Sideman told the PA news agency the company should express "understanding in our time".He added: "Things are changing and blacks' problems are no longer an issue you can push forward.It's something you have to deal with, it's something you have to have an action plan, otherwise it will happen again and it'll be embarrassing for you.DJ said that while there is institutional racism on the BBC, the same is true. "Almost every organization in this country" and he did not intend "Slander or slander" the broadcaster

The impact of social media

He added that he was surprised by the response to his resignation, which was originally announced in a video posted on social media.I look back at what I did and think, Wow, people amplify my voice and make it more impactful," he said.If social media didn't make it as bad as they did, it wouldn't be a big deal as the BBC apologized 24 hours later.Sideman was not the only BBC staff member to criticize the report.Larry Madowo, a BBC World correspondent in the US, said in a tweet that the BBC's rules on racially sensitive languages ​​were inconsistent.

Causing a 'foul' symptom

The BBC doesn't allow me, a real black man, to use the N word in articles when referring to African Americans who use it," he said. are 'Editor's Reason'Sideman expressed his condolences to act like this to encourage the BBC to change his mind.18,000 people complain in the right way is a boring way," he told PA.They go to the website and print out long boring emails. All I do is Instagram video.That's it for me, tell me something about our society, that what I do makes even more stinks.
