On Tuesday's "Daily Show," correspondents Samantha Bee and Jessica Williams set out upon a noble mission: To take part in the national conversation on race by talking to groups of black people and white people about their impressions on race.

But when Bee (who is white) is placed in a black focus group, and Williams (who is black) interviews a white group, we see pretty quickly that such a dynamic offers up some pretty startling revelations on how we feel about race behind closed doors.

Check out the clip above to watch "The Daily Show" skewer the idea that racism can be solved by simple conversation.
