Earlier this afternoon, a friend of mine had sent me a link to this particular video (above) and, needless to say, I was appalled. Brigham Young University—and the state of Utah, in general—is not exactly a hotbed for widespread acceptance and diversity, so it certainly wasn’t a surprise for me to hear BYU’s student body espouse such blatant (and deeply latent) racist beliefs upon being interviewed. Without excusing the severity of their responses (“I can think of some girls that have jungle fever”), the aversion and total repulsion I have towards this video is much more pointed at the interviewer, himself.
Oh, the irony.
