Single Story On Africa Analysis

Satisfactory Essays
I can relate to your “single” story on Africa. When all that is shown on television are sad commercials about how Africa needs help and how by donating only a dollar a month these starving kids can get help, stereotypes begin to form. Besides making Africa seem poor, this makes Africa seem monolithic when it is not, it is full of multiple diverse countries. While you have grown as a person and learned to deconstruct this notion of Africa, there are still many who still believe in this notion. I still see people sharing posts online that talk about how people in Africa are poor and all live in huts and hear parents telling their children to eat their food because kids in Africa have no food.
