Have you ever had to undergo “diversity training?” I did when I worked at the Seattle Times. Corporations fork out big bucks to politically correct police who put you through insipid sensitivity exercises. These people lack common sense, humor, and nuance. Every reference to race, ethnicity, gender, or physical appearance is a firing offense. The trainers treat employees like kindergarteners. It’s excruciatingly painful and insulting–and always wrapped in white guilt. Under the guise of fighting stereotypes, the diversity-mongers inevitably engage in exactly the kind of behavior they claim to condemn.

One employee in Denver has had enough of the diversity racket. He’s blown the whistle on a Blame Whitey diversity video (hat tip – Slapstick Politics):

The city of Denver is showing its employees a diversity training video that portrays a white man as a narrow-minded buffoon – triggering allegations of “institutional racism” against Anglos.

“Right now, their diversity program is racially motivated against white males,” said Dennis Supple, a heating, ventilating and air-conditioning mechanic who has worked for the city 1 1/2 years.

The video, titled Laughing Matters – Think About It, is meant to show employees how humor at the expense of others diminishes respect in the workplace. The character who breaks all the rules is Billy, a white, blue-collar worker who’s a racist, sexist goofball.

In one scene, Billy is told that another employee named Carlos can’t do anything because he’s waiting for supplies.

“What’s his problem?” Billy says. “He can’t sell breakfast burritos without the supplies or he takes a siesta?”

Supple said the video violates his civil rights and that he’s considering taking the equity in his house to file a lawsuit to stop the city from showing it.

“Diversity, to me, doesn’t mean hammer the white guy,” Supple said. “Diversity means you have respect for everyone, regardless of their race, their gender, their religion, their sexual orientation.”

The video is like a bad, bad Onion parody. Here’s a snippet:

The Drunkablog notes that the city of Denver brags that the video “developed by the city’s Diversity Advisory Committee in collaboration with Channel 8, the city’s television channel, won second place in 2005 for Instruction/Training from the National Association of Telecommunications Officers and Advisors.”

In fact, the video was planned to be “the first in a series.”

Your tax dollars at work.

Wonder if the diversity advisors will be making any of these videos for college campuses?
