African Men Shoot Their Machine Guns From Trucks And Think Smiling is Stupid
Though I had absolutely nothing to do with making this, consider it a sort of impromptu follow up to my previous editorial about Think Like A Man and Hollywood's bias against casting minorities in significant parts. Check the video below for an absolutely bang on - and laugh out loud hysterical - deconstruction of the Hollywood portrayal of Africans.

This smashed my one prevailing African stereotype: Football Obsession. Clearly, they are also into Rugby. My bad!

Seriously, though, this was great.

Very good video. I'm going to show it to a few people I know and see what they think about it. Being black myself, I would love to see someone other than Denzel or Jamie Fox or Will Smith getting all the star roles. And Todd, your Think Like a Man editorial was honestly one of the best i've read in a long time.

That was amazing! I loved every minute of it! Most of the africans in my city are doctors, shame on hollywood! Now you can add Brazilians and Mexicans to that list as they're always portrayed as drug lords or gangbangers, Japanese as yakuza, always yelling every word they speak! And finally all people of the middle east, we all know how they're portrayed! @ andrewcdub, I totally understand where you're coming from, I'm afro caribbean/african american, and I can't wait til the day where we can see someone like a Michael Jai White can be in a starring role thats on the big screen, and not a straight to dvd film.
