Did you know the music artist, Akon, owned a diamond mine in South Africa? To quote him, he said the following: "I don't even believe in conflict diamonds. That's just a movie. Think about it. Ain't nobody thought about nothing about no conflict diamonds until the movie came out." reference: http://enjoyment.independent.co.uk/music/features/article2272672.ece How do you see Akon's character as an African? Do you see him in any different light after this?
