The British Royal Air Force has suspended job offers to white men in an effort to meet their diversity targets.

The head of recruitment has even resigned in protest amid claims the service has effectively paused recruitment of white men to hit diversity targets.

So they are pausing the hire of white men becasue they’re the wrong color and gender.

Isn’t there a name for that?

Sky News reports: The head of RAF recruitment has resigned in protest at an “effective pause” on offering jobs to white male recruits in favour of women and ethnic minorities, defence sources have claimed.

The senior female officer apparently handed in her notice in recent days amid concerns that any such restrictions on hiring, however temporary and limited, could undermine the fighting strength of the Royal Air Force (RAF), the sources said.

They said the service was attempting to hit “impossible” diversity targets.

The defence sources accused Air Chief Marshal Sir Mike Wigston, the head of the RAF, of appearing willing to compromise UK security at a time of growing threats from Russia and China in pursuit of albeit important goals such as improving diversity and inclusion.

One of the defence sources noted how General Sir Patrick Sanders, the head of the army, has likened today’s security challenges to those in the build-up to the Second World War, warning that the UK is facing its “1937 moment”.

“Then you look at the head of the RAF and he’s prepared to break the operational requirement of the air force just to meet diversity [targets],” the source said.

“I think he needs to be hauled up by the Ministry of Defence and told: This is the defence agenda, get on it.”

The recruitment claims prompted a response from Rishi Sunak, one of the two contenders vying to be the UK’s next prime minister.

A spokesperson for the Sunak leadership campaign said: “The only thing that should matter in recruitment is the content of your character, not your sex or the colour of your skin.

“That the Ministry of Defence would allow Britain’s security to potentially be put at risk by a drive for so-called ‘diversity’ is not only disgraceful, it is dangerous.”
