You gotta love America. Is there another country in the world where a Jewish Deli and a black barbershop exist on the same block? Furthermore, is there another country in the world whose residents have a cloudier picture of what people of other cultures do to celebrate the holiday season?

Jimmy Kimmel — after a monologue that I have to admit is kind of corny — puts it on all on the table in a very smart social experiment with hilarious results.

I do wish that for once the barbershop weren’t the go-to for the African-American perspective, but I’m so tickled by how clueless folks are about these holidays when most people would probably confuse Hanukkah’s menorah with Kwanzaa’s kinara. Kwanzaa is the black version of Christmas? That dude in the barbershop singing the driedel song? I need to head to Canter’s Deli immediately for a sandwich, then to Legends for a shape-up, and go hang out with all of these people in between because they are too funny.

    Hilarious. So the guy who started talking about the Scottish and the Maccabees knows his stuff. He was fine! He looks like a news anchor so something.

    Too funny. Now, I’d like to see some of the folks who celebrate Christmas to explain, in detail, what it’s about!

    Jimmy Kimmel’s skits have been on-point lately. I’ve been replaying his hilarious L.A. Reid chair dancing skit non-stop. http://www.mjsbigblog.com/the-x-factor-judges-in-the-hot-seat-jimmy-kimmel-live-video.htm

    I especially love the “stinky” chair dance.

      why are people always trying to front or act as if they know when they dont, like seriously if you dont know just make a nice comment and move on…Canters has been around in LA for years…..ON FAIRFAX… and furthermore who even cares, but then to pass out wrong information just smh.

      at any rate …this video was hilarious

    Is there another country in the world where a Jewish Deli and a black barbershop exist on the same block?

    Yes, very many countries: Canada, England, France, South Africa, to name a few

    Furthermore, is there another country in the world whose residents have a cloudier picture of what people of other cultures do to celebrate the holiday season?

    No. We stay winning for ignorance and cluelessness. USA! USA! USA!

      NY is honestly the only place i can think of that would have jewish and black folks on the same block.

      i’m in california and the black folks are in compton and long beach while the jewish folks are near hollywood very far away! i’ve only seen like a couple jewish people (in person) in my entire life.

      i really wish there was more diversity. its nothing but latinos!
