A comic artist wonders how Africa and Africans are portrayed by the media and above all by cinema. White people’s opinion about Africa is dominated by an extremely negative perspective, which leads them to consider Africans as powerless children who are not able to live in peace and who develop their own economy without the intervention of white people.
