Howard pioneered this type of segment years ago. Basically, you go out on the street, interview a bunch of people, and then cut out any response that is intelligent. The result is comedy with a coating of social commentary in that you get to hear what the tragically uninformed or under-educated members of society think about an otherwise serious issue.
You should realize that the person who conducted the interviews, Sal Governale (staff member of the Stern Show since 2004), is somewhat obsessed with race; and therefore, the motivations behind his selection of the people and/or location may have been driven by this unfortunate obsession.
