Helen actually made a decent point:
Not being rude, but those who suggest this is just an issue of Mr Ross being PC are missing the point. We do not live in a society where people are judged solely on talent and skill. If we did, there would most definitely be more ethnic minorities in boardrooms up and down the country as well as in front of the camera on every channel. To suggest that the fact that there aren't is down to skill and ability is laughable.
If so, please explain the fact that in football, diversity seems to matter less. The fact is, skill and talent only count where there is economic gain or competitive reputation at stake. Otherwise, in my experience, it's business as usual and organisations continue to say all the right weasel words about 'diversity'. Meanwhile, the public get hysterical because they think putting a minority in front of a camera or in a position of power threatens them in some way...
The day it is down to skill and ability will be the day when no one snorts and mentions 'PC'...
