Health warning: don't watch this unless you're ready to have the (ahem) "politically correct" view punched in the face, shredded in the meat grinder, and fed to the Shoggoths. Then you have to decide who's telling the truth. Worth watching for shock value, if for no other reason. You have been duly warned.
