Many people are upset by the all white casting of films set in ancient Africa. They are less able to explain the extensive and insidious mis-representation of African culture; history, architecture and art which occur in every frame of those movies. This is just as damaging but often goes unnoticed. It affects people who have'nt even seen the movie due to the massive promotional advertising that comes with such films, the brainwashing continues indirectly and subconsciously.
In this blockbuster movie breakdown we will cover:
