Wouldn't it be better if African men weren't always depicted as warlords or victims? http://www.stayclassy.org/events/build-future-50k-50-days/e16054

After viewing Mama Hope's video, "Alex Presents Commando," Gabriel, Benard, Brian and Derrik (the Kenyan men in this video) told us they wanted to make one that pokes fun at the way African men are portrayed in Hollywood films. They said, "If people believed only what they saw in movies, they would think we are all warlords who love violence." They, like Mama Hope, are tired of the over-sensationalized, one-dimensional depictions of African men and the white savior messaging that permeates our media. They wanted to tell their own stories instead, so we handed them the mic and they made this video.

Love the video donate to get the blooper reel: http://www.stayclassy.org/events/build-future-50k-50-days/e16054
