CBS announced Monday it will diversify its future reality TV casts to include at least 50 percent black, indigenous and people of color (BIPOC). A view of the last cast of Survivor: Winners at War that aired in May above

In a shining example of the blind, oblivious racism that afflicts the leftist mind, CBS will be instituting racial quotas, it announced on Nov. 9. That is, skin color will be a deciding factor in the choice of future reality TV casts so that they do not include too many white people.

The goal is to include at least 50 percent “black, indigenous and people of color,” which even has been given its own acronym: “BIPOC,” reports DailyMail.com.

The move to racial selection means that future line-ups of hit shows like Survivor, Big Brother and Love Island will be chosen by skin color starting with the 2021-2022 season.

The move is an attempt to placate fans who launched a petition urging CBS to cast fewer white people in their content and after several Survivor contestants condemned a lack of physical diversity in the show’s cast.

“The reality TV genre is an area that’s especially underrepresented, and needs to be more inclusive across development, casting, production and all phases of storytelling,” CBS president and CEO George Cheeks said in a statement.

“As we strive to improve all of these creative aspects, the commitments announced today are important first steps in sourcing new voices to create content and further expanding the diversity in our unscripted programming, as well as on our Network,” he added.
