    LOL @ the Nelson Mandela reference at the end. This video really is the truth, and shows how “the struggle” reaches all the way back to the motherland.

    The amazing thing is that these same stereotypes are placed upon African Americans…in particular, within pop culture, music, and media.

    Thanks for sharing this enlightening video!!
