Blasting stereotypes of Africa

I just came across this video. It’s funny, ridiculous, absurd, sad, and more true than I care to admit.

I love how the chief tells her that they put the silliest answers possible on the survey because they thought it was a joke! I also love how he said that Americans can’t tell Africans to develop if Ghana beat the U.S. in the World Cup. I also like how the girl says she can’t stay in the village because there’s not internet, but the chief sounds totally hooked up.

But I’m telling you, at least some of these African chiefs seriously have Got It Goin’ On! Check out this chief who manages his entire constituency and does an awesome job of “member care” through twitter: Kenyan Chief Tweets His Way to Reducing Crime … I kind of wish I had a tribal leader like that!
