The Racist Diversity Video

This story was so entertaining for me that I had to double check to make sure it wasn't in The Onion. A white man in Denver is considering suing because the city's diversity video is racist against whites. "The video titled, 'Laughing Matters -- Think About It,' features a white, blue-collar worker named Billy who's portrayed as racist, sexist, and clueless while illustrating inappropriate humor. 'Diversity, to me, doesn't mean hammer the white guy,' said Dennis Supple, a heating, ventilation and air conditioning mechanic who said he's considering filing a lawsuit. 'Diversity means you have respect for everyone, regardless of their race, their gender, their religion, their sexual orientation.'" Fair enough.

But that's not necessarily the funny part, even though it does make a good blog title. The best part is the video itself. I swear I kept checking for Dave Chappelle or Will Ferrell to pop up. Enjoy.

It's OK to make fun of that guy's moustache though, right?
