Okay, so admittedly, Hollywood movies have the ability/inclination to skew our visions of different ethnic groups. For years after seeing Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, I was convinced that all Germans swam in giant rivers of cocoa. After living here, I can confirm that it’s not true at all. Giant rivers of Pilsner are a different story.
However, a group that’s definitely been given the cartoon treatment is African men.
