    I enjoyed it. I wish they had mentioned what country they hail from. Because of their accents I'm guessing they're from an East African country.

    From the look and the accent and everything, i would say NOT west.. but thats the only area I am somewhat familiar with... it could just as well be central or south to me from what I know

    I must be watching all the wrong movies as I've never thought of any culture like that. (Oh, and I cut out on this vid early. I don't really like war movies).

    lol. I haven't even watched your video featured here yet but I can say, with almost 100% certainty (yes, I have special gifts like Nostradomas of knowing what some certain groups of people will do, ha ha ha) that your personal experience (and the true reality of life) with African men is the opposite of what this video portrays. Am I right? lol. But I will come back soon and look at your video to see if it confirms what I'm almost certain it does regarding stereotypes of any male of African descent any where in the world. lol. Was the video produced by Americans? Just curious. Well, let me watch it first. As Arnold the terminator would say, "I'll be back" I promise.

    +1 Agreed.

    Too many people zero in on the negative stereotypes. It's lazy thinking.

    Okay, I just watched the video, as I promised. I retract my statement previously which was made in ignorance about the video before I watched it. I thought for certain it had been made by Americans which meant I certainly knew what the image of African males would be (just watch any CNN newscast for any length of time, lol), but, you must remember I have grown for most of my life in America which does mean, by design, a certain impression on African Americans that watch American television regarding the image projected of black african men by American film and news. So my ignorant assessment previously was inaccurate with regard to what I thought I would see in your video here. Which is interesting too actually. That's all I will say about this.
