More Discrimination At The BBC

In a Times report of the extent of viewer funding of the BBC, one paragraph about BBC bosses' bonuses caught my eye,

'No BBC boss took home a bonus because targets for ethnic-minority recruitment were not met.'

The flip-side of the benign sounding 'ethnic-minority recruitment' is discrimination against non-ethnics. Why are the BBC deliberately choosing staff on the basis of their race and religion? Is this legal? Why are they not simply looking for the best person for the job?

As a taxpayer, i am paying for the BBC. I despise racial discrimination. Why the hell do i have to fund an organsiation that is promoting racial discrimination?
