These African Men Just Called Out Hollywood’s Stereotypes – And the Result Is Hilarious

Editor’s Note: The following cross-posted video uses the term “stupid” to express something bad. While we strongly appreciate the sentiments in this video, we also recognize that “stupid” is an ableist term that has hurt many people. We don’t support the use of such language, apologize in advance for any harm caused, and look forward to the eradication of such language from our collective conscious.

“We’re talking to you, shirtless Matthew McConaughey.”

Do you recognize any of the movies that show up in this video – or the stereotypes they show about African men? If you’ve only seen them in the movies, then you haven’t seen African men like this before.

These guys had us cracking up, and we’re sure glad they’re speaking up for themselves about who they are. This is the kind of positivity that’s missing from Hollywood’s image of African men, Mama Hope is making a difference by making it known. Help spread the word!
