Looking to meet other autistic people for my new BBC series . Very keen to hear from Black , Asian or minority ethnic autistic people , older autistic people diagnosed as children & autistic parents of autistic children . Please get in touch here https://bbc.in/3pYT0ph.
My friend doesn't fall into any of those categories, being neither BAME, nor 'older autistic', nor autistic herself.
I'm worried for Chris though. Despite him doing the recently popular BBC virtue-signalling thing and putting BAME people first among those he wants to speak to, he could still find himself in trouble with the BBC.
He's still thinking through the outmoded, so-yesterday, snowflake-melting filter of the 'BAME' concept, despite the BBC recently banning the term 'BAME' after Sir Lenny Henry CBE - via a report - told the BBC to stop using the phrase and they, in typical BBC fashion, duly curtsied and bowed to Sir Lenny-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed.
So Chris needs to be careful and mind his Ps and Qs [Peregrine falcons and Quail].
