A BBC Sports presenter introduced a bizarre segment which expressed concern about the English female football team comprising of players who are all white.
The presenter praised the team for securing an 8-0 victory against Norway to book their place in the quarter finals of the women’s Euro 2022 tournament.
However, she then ludicrously drew attention to their skin color.
“But all starting 11 players and the 5 substitutes that came on to the pitch were all white,” lamented the presenter, as if this was a bad thing.
“And that does point towards a lack of diversity in the women’s game,” she added.
WTF exactly does this presenter want the English coach to do if the 15 most talented/tactically appropriate players for the match happen to be white?
Jeopardise the score in the name of “diversity”?
The BBC are a joke. pic.twitter.com/I05h1zjG3I

The reporter then threw to a piece by black presenter Alex Scott about the same supposed ‘problem’.
English people being white? In a country that is around 85 per cent white?
The absolute horror.
Would they express similar concern about the Nigerian team being all black?
Perhaps the BBC will draw attention to the shocking lack of diversity in the UK grime scene next?
Or maybe not.
