Left-wing Buzzfeed Canada goes racist, says they're hiring people particularly 'not white and not male'

StaffRebel Columnist

Buzzfeed Canada's senior editor Scaachi Koul has a lot of explaining to do after tweeting that while they were hiring, the company would “particularly like to hear from you if you are not white and not male.”

When Koul received criticism for her Tweets and race-base hiring practices, she proceeded to fight back.


Koul added that while white men can pitch reports, she is looking for 'diversity'.

“White men are still permitted to pitch, I will read it, I will consider it. I’m just less interested because, ugh, men,” she said.

“Women, minorities, non-binary, queer, trans*, aboriginal people are still my first priority,” she added.

She then proceeded to go off the deep end...

As of four hours ago, Koul tweeted a picture saying “you owe these pale demons nothing.”

Can you imagine the backlash if a media outlet's senior editor tweeted out that they were mainly looking for white males?

“white men
get huffy
when you don’t actively encourage white men
to do stuff
because white men

You mean like forcing the government to force businesses to hire minorities because none of them want to work? Should we hold minorities at gunpoint and make them get jobs?

Couldn’t you use this same logic when you complain about “not enough minority groups represented in comics?” Then why don’t you tell these minorities to start writing their own comics? This skank is just looking for a free ride like all of the other minority groups.

I’m not sure if she realized but most people to settle in Canada were white, a lot of which were men, another liberal trying to fix a problem that does not exist.

Perhaps publishing a picture of her would help . Letting her hide is not right.

Bad news :she has tweeted she’s not going to be fired this weekend. She’s hijacked the companies journalistic and integrity for now. Hopefully once advertisers see who they’re supporting more pressure can be put on these doormats at Bf to do something. How embarrassing for the company

Don Mac….Exactly, the whole inclusion and diversity crap have eliminated what should have been the only criteria, Qualification. Hiring quotas have in it self, created discrimination. But the SJW’s will never admit to that.

Sean Penson….please get some help, your not well mentally. To help with your transition to real life, let help by giving you the definition of racism. Merriam/Webster:Full Definition of racism
1: a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race
2: racial prejudice or discrimination
rac·ist play \-sist also -shist\ noun or adjective

As you see, no reference to white,pink or green and no mention of gender.
I hope this helps, you leftist progressive fucktard.

back in the ’80’s the RCMP had a hiring policy that had white males at the bottom of the list with minorities , natives , and women given preference. After instituting this policy many white RCMP officers decided to take retirement as soon as possible while others joined city police forces. Today the RCMP are a shell of the once admired force.
Hiring based on anything other than hiring the best always results in poor outcomes. I’m sure this mediocre publication will have a similar outcome.

I don’t know how those who have a problem with their lack of ethics came out on the wrong side of this. You’re right RG. We are now in a society where the fear of challenging narratives like this is greater than doing the right thing.
commented 2016-02-20 13:02:46 -0500
It’s scary of what a loose leash she has. I was reading an article how desperate Buzzfeed is for loyal readers and I guess they are now trading in their ethics for page hits. I wish I was in a position to say whatever I want with no consequences but I grew up and don’t mock and throw temper tantrums when I’m exposed. So woe is me and my old stock play by the rulebook ways. Is Buzzfeed so empty of morals and this woman so coddled that she they would rather protect her than stand firmly against discrimination? Neither seem to get it and this is a big joke to them. Check out her latest tweets. I am so stunned by Buzzfeed enabling this woman like they are. Ultimately they are one of the last places you’d go for quality or credible content but this only buries them down further having no backbone and all. I’m hard pressed to find a company who so obviously trades ethics for page hits.

I don’t know what is more disturbing, that no mainstream media wants to address this or that she’s taken the victim stance and is still laughing this off. It’s been a while since I came across someone so vile and entitled.

Unless the present dominate segment of Canada stand up against the new left Our Country as we know it will perish. Trudeau represents all that is wrong in our country. Until he is deferated then removed from any decision making in our country you can expect to see the destruction of this nation. We simply must fight against the radicalls, Or face the consequences.

Irony. BuzzFeed is celebrating Black History Month while one of their employers referring to white males as “pale demons”.

@ Sarah Howard

After reading a portion of the above article I thought I would put this out again – if only because this white male has had nothing given to him – but explosives and bullets – while trying to protect some women who were entirely ungrateful at our success it seemed

And when I read this:

white men
get huffy
when you don’t actively encourage white men
to do stuff
because white men

Which is why I call them feminazis and often have women make excuses for them

I am certain others are getting tired of me putting this up


commented 2016-02-19 22:36:23 -0500
Actually, that was a good intellectual debate. No one wins or loses, we just understand ourselves better.
We need more of this here, but we probably need a forum. :)


Couldn’t respond, I had my hands full with Sarah. :)

But my point isn’t whether the content of any particular message of what Scaachi said is or is not an actual law-breaking expression.

The point is that regardless of whether it is or not; and up until that time that a ruling body (including TOS violation) itself explicitly issues a ban on the said item of expression; a person is free to say as they wish without fear of censorship or being banished.

The faux-rulings by all the ‘armchair judges’ (everybody’s a lawyer right? ;), regardless of what they think, is no reason to censor. No matter how clear-cut the case seems.

If this could be the case then I’m sure Milo Yiannopoulos would have been banned a long time ago from most all social media; (not just simply losing his verified user symbol); for so-called illegal acts of expression.

The fact that he’s still pissing up a vitriolic storm is good, no matter how many people he’s insulted or has made to feel uncomfortable.

commented 2016-02-19 22:22:32 -0500
We can’t do much to change this ridiculous woman’s views – Scaachi Koul, the Buzzfeed editor – but we can strike a blow against Buzzfeed for (apparently) encouraging her to behave in such a discriminatory fashion. It’s simple: we refuse to install Buzzfeed on our own computers and we un-install it if we already have it. And if we own a small business or are in control of what programs are on the computers in that company, we can remove it unless it is absolutely vital to the operation of the business, which seems unlikely at best.

If we hear through the grapevine that Buzzfeed has sacked this woman and/or adopted policies that don’t discriminate against white males, then we can always re-install Buzzfeed.

It would also be interesting to see if it is possible to get hired by Buzzfeed without a personal interview. Some jobs allow you to work from home all or most of the time without having to set foot in the office very often or maybe ever. If writing for Buzzfeed works that way, then it might be possible to tell this woman that you are a lesbian from Libya or a tranny from Taiwan or whatever, get hired, write some good articles that she praises, and then unveil yourself as a white male, preferably in person. Wouldn’t it be fun to watch her head explode – metaphorically – right in front of you? Bring a videographer: I’d LOVE to see the look on her face….

This blatant double standard and attack against the white male majority has been going on in Canada for some time now. The Richmond, BC fire department scandal back in 2007 is a good example:
“…The Richmond Fire Department had to apply to a B.C. Human Rights panel to get permission for a “diversity” plan which allows 75% of new jobs in its fire department to go to visible minorities and women. The plan will last from 2007 to 2010…”
See: “White Males Need NOT Apply”
The ‘help wanted’ ad, placed by the Richmond fire department, that appeared in the Vancouver Sun (that I can’t find) was mind blowing at the time…look what has been done about it – or has come about – since then!
White, heterosexual, Christians are still the majority in Canada – why are we putting up with the dismantling and deconstruction of our country and all the rest of this lefty/liberal/progressive BS? WHY?

Hey Sarah,

I agree that you can can feel as you do and express as you do.
And I’ll defend that you can feel and express yourself as you wish about her.

But, just as an example of my point, if you were to take action to attempt to her suppress her free speech, I could not support you.

I defend to the death her right to say as she wishes.
Any legal consequences are another issue, that’s not for me to decide, that’s for the courts.
But that aside, even non-violent hate speech is protected in our free-loving country.

commented 2016-02-19 20:45:57 -0500

Yes, I do agree that she can speak her mind about whatever she wants, I don’t want to take her opinions to away from her. I’m not looking to censor someone like a thought police. But you are right in that when you are in a position of power and hold such bias, then you should held to a higher standard and I hope that either Buzzfeed or someone applying takes this further. Obviously I don’t fit the criteria of a plaintiff, I just think that when someone so vocal in the feminism community makes such assertions in a professional forum that they need to be held accountable. If she continues at Buzzfeed and there are not consequences, then she’s proven herself bigger than they are and given her more leeway than she should have.

She should apologize and take a leave of absence if not leave altogether. She has a book coming out and is a great writer otherwise, but perhaps being in a position with a company like Buzzfeed where the brand is bigger than anything she’ll do is limiting to the things she really wants to say. As you say, that’s not for me to decide but hopefully Buzzfeed will share the sentiment. The fact that you can’t even bring it up because of fear of a backlash claiming you’re against feminism or equality is fucked up though and I fear what the ultimate result here will be. She’s the one promoting inequality but gets to stay because of equality? It doesn’t make sense.
commented 2016-02-19 20:36:46 -0500
I consider myself a feminist in wanting equal opportunities for myself and my fellow women. But I’m not out looking to pick fights out of thin air, on Tumblr looking to add to a confirmation bias that all men are evil pigs, evil-eying men who check me out or demanding unfair treatment when there is no basis for it.

If I were to apply for a job and not get hired, not knowing anything about who did or the hiring practises of the company, I would move on to the next place. I wouldn’t use my gender or race as a token or card to get me to the front of the line. Nor would I use it to give me an open mic to be vile and hateful towards men just because I expect them all to be hateful and vile themselves. I expect the same consideration, evaluation and respect that anyone of any background or gender does. I am the opposite of Schaachi Koul, who is a cancer to feminism and part of the problem as to why other women feel the same way. When people champion and cheerlead these kinds of asinine thoughts, they’re just promoting ignorance and not diversity.
commented 2016-02-19 20:33:58 -0500

I agree with you, and I don’t believe we fundamentally disagree with each other.

It’s correct that the employer may have repercussions.
And that’s up to them to take that risk, and that’s up to her to risk her job.

But I’m certainly not going to stop them, or tell them they don’t have the right to say it.

But if a white male fails to get a job there and he feels he was discriminated against, more power to him in his attempted lawsuit or other legal processes.

Some people push the boundaries of the law, and I respect that.
Laws don’t change unless you push the boundaries.

Another allegory,
If people hate oil, pipelines, oil sands, fossil fuels, go ahead and rant to your heart’s content.
Be a total irrational nutcake, I don’t care.

But once you get into areas of policymaking, and start performing actions that negatively affect other people’s lives, like Nutley’s and her NDP, then we have a problem that needs to be attended to.

Also, Nutley can hate the Rebel, she can ignore the Rebel, but she can’t do anything to stop the Rebel.
Once she starts doing that, then the issue needs to be attended to.

But of course like the white male job seeker, she has the right to serve paper and let the courts decide.

But Ezra and the Rebel have the right to push their rights to the whatever limits of the law they choose. It is not my right to be the ‘armchair’ prosecutor against his actions by way of attempted censorship or other negative action.

But I will defend to the death his right to exercise his freedom of speech, whatever it may be, regardless of whether I agree with it.
