This video lists all the cliches of how Africa is portrayed and written about. I think it's a great example of how old stereotypes (like the ones Dominika showed in the Tintin video) of Africa continue today in other guises.
I was thinking of movies like District 9, The Last King of Scotland, and various action movies that tend to show Africans as gun-crazy warlords. I couldn't think of a really good example from an action movie though.. any suggestions?
