The Daily Show's Jon Stewart took a hard look at Senator Barack Obama's speech on race and found out a few things he wasn't aware of -- like the fact that some black people are angry. Stewart responds by setting the mobile alarm on his desk. He's then joined by Senior Uncategorized correspondent, Larry Wilmore, and they have a deep, meaningful discussion about race and the pet peeves blacks and whites have about the other. Like music:

Wilmore:"...Little pet peeve. Music."

Stewart:"Music. Sure, ok."

Wilmore:"Alright, now you guys have a tendency, you know, to ruin it. Sorry. You know, like jazz. You know, Miles Davis, Coltrane. You know.

Stewart:"Right, great stuff, great stuff."

Wilmore:"Yeah, you're welcome! But then you guys take it and turn it into Kenny G. It's annoying."
