Jimmy Kimmel Asks White People If They Have Any Black Friends (Video)
In recent years, casual (and not so casual) racism has come under a bit of criticism as more and more people have become aware of things like "civil rights" and "common sense," but we've got a long way to go in our quest for a world without stupid people.
Over the years, I've noticed a lot of the aforementioned stupid people have, at some point in their lives, said, "I have a black friend," a phrase often employed by backtracking racists or less racist people who want others to think they value diversity a lot more than they actually do.
"Jimmy Kimmel Live" took to Hollywood Boulevard to ask random pedestrians if they have any black friends, and Jimmy asked the studio audience to guess the answers in a video that would undoubtedly contain "SOCIAL EXPERIMENT" in the title if Kimmel took himself more seriously.
It's a great reminder that we should always be careful of judging people based on initial impressions -- unless that person is a white guy named Chuck Pruett from Lancaster, OH.
There's no way that guy has any black friends.
