African Men: Hollywood Stereotypes

A group of four Kenyans has released a video set out to break the stereotype of African men in Hollywood. In the video, the men poke fun at the way African men are portrayed in Hollywood films and the media - especially the portrayal of African men as violence obsessed.

The video is part of Mama Hope's "Stop the Pity, Unlock the Potential Campaign".

That's a good video. I hope the Westerners will stop looking at Africans from that angle.
