    The absolute best video I have ever seen! Do yourself a favour and watch. This isn't a joke. Trust me you will love this. Rarely do we see this kind of quality...you are missing out if you don't watch!

    I gave it my best shot.
    Humourless, predictable and pointless.
    A missed opportunity to say something useful about PC in Education.

    The moment I saw the spelling of the title, I knew it would be moronic.

    This is one of the most stupid things I've wasted my time on in a long time.

    Yes, satire is hard to understand for the simpler among you.

    To me, all your statement sounds like to me is, "Yeah, it was way better back when whites had all the jobs and women stayed at home."

    Satire my ass. You are actually denigrating diversity.

    Satire needs to be done with some finesse.
    This was just a giant sledgehammer of sarcasm; totally witless.

    It's not satire when it's dumber than the thing it's "satirising".

    Do you really think that was the point of the video? How the hell did you come to that conclusion? The point the video is making is not a desire to return to the 1950's. The point is.....well maybe you need to think about it a little while longer.

    Here's a clue though..the video was made by the brown guy in the video with the beard. He's made several other videos similar to this one.

    I don't care who made it.

    He's actually making fun of diversity and efforts to increase it.

    Bigots come in more flavors than just white.

    After seeing that this one stirred debate after hesitating due to "absolutely best" my verdict:

    I thumbed down the original post.

    The video is far off from "absolutely best". It is not deep. It has a point about staying on topic... The problem has been tackled with much more depth and elegance before. e.g. Kurt Vonnegut: Harrison Bergeron (first published 1961 in "the Magazine of Fantays and Science Fiction"😉
