China Deals with Stereotypes of Africa

The Conversation published on 26 February 2018 a commentary titled "China's Media Struggles to Overcome Stereotypes of Africa" by Dani Madrid-Morales, PhD fellow at the City University of Hong Kong.

CCTV aired a comedy skit for this years's Annual Spring Festival Gala about the growing ties between China and Africa. Although it had to undergo careful government censorship, many Africans deemed the skit to be culturally insensitive or even racist.

The Conversation published on 6 March 2018 another commentary titled "What 'Black Face' Tells Us about China's Patronising Attitude towards Africa" by Roberto Castillo, Lingnan University.
