Can’t We All Just Get Along?

It’s been a rough year for Jewish-Black relations.  Because of the whole Hillary/Obama showdown, and The Great Schlep, I’ve been hearing lots of Jews talk about how they feel about black people generally, and it doesn’t always make me so happy.  But today I stumbled across an awesome old music video (old being relative, it came out in 2006) from Beyond the Pale.  The video is of a Jamaican Jewish Weddings, with the Jewish and Jamaican sides of the families facing off on the dance floor a la West Side Story.  The music is amazing, but I fell in love with the dancing, too.  And make sure to watch until the end so you can hear a really awesome and profound/cheesy quote about chicken.
