White storytellers block minorities from viewing Nature Docs: Government-funded study

Ethnic minorities could be discouraged from watching nature documentaries if narrated by white men, claims a report funded by Britain’s supposedly Conservative-led government.

A study funded by Britain’s Environment Agency in 2022 allegedly claims ethnic minorities may be discouraged from watching a nature documentary if the presenter is a white male.

The research was reportedly uncovered by Conservative Way Forward, a Margaret Thatcher-affiliated advocacy group, with some excerpts of the report published by The Telegraph on Saturday.

According to the newspaper, the Environment Agency funded what it calls the “international climate change group” to commission a study into the impact of multicultural politics on its work.

The document, titled “A Challenging Environment: Experiences of Ethnic Minority Environmental Professionals,” reportedly concluded that the presence of white men in documentaries could discourage people from other backgrounds from viewing content about nature.

“The tendency for environmental documentaries to be narrated by white, male voices has been cited as an example of how the environment and sector can feel inaccessible to people from ethnic minorities,” the study reportedly concluded, apparently voicing no criticism of people who were thereby deterred Whites as harborers of racial prejudice.

In total, The Telegraph claims the Environment Agency has recently focused increasingly on the issues of “equality, diversity and inclusivity”, with the UK government giving the organization millions of pounds to pursue these goals, despite being led by the notionally anti-woke Conservatives (Tory) Partying for well over a decade.

The revelation that the government is funding studies into the negative impact white men allegedly have on nature documentaries comes shortly after a presenter for the country’s state broadcaster criticized rural Britain for its cultural association with white Britons.

Nihal Arthanayake, a broadcaster for the BBC, noted last week that there was a perception that the British landscape was middle-class and white, a perception that Arthanayake accused so-called “online trolls” of promoting it.

“There is this barrier; a perception often perpetuated by social media trolls that the country is inherently white and middle-class,” Arthanayake said. “But when you go out there, you will find overwhelmingly that people are just happy. Glad to be there and glad to see you.”

“We live in one of the most tolerant countries in the world, and whether I’m traveling alone or with family, I’ve never felt anything but welcome,” he continued, perhaps inadvertently undermining the narrative of the country as a sort of hotbed of racial identity politics .

Arthanayake’s comments sparked considerable controversy in the UK, with the presenter attacking many of those he disagreed with as “racists” and “trolls”.

“Do these people who are so afraid of being a minority fear because of the way they have treated minorities?” he suggested on-line.

“The normalization of hatred of Muslims on social media is disgusting [sic],” he added.
