    Watch: Gru & The Minions Are Back To Fight Evil In New Trailer For 'Despicable Me 2'

    Watch: StereoTypes Paris - French African vs. African American?

    What I found most interesting about this video is that the black people he talks to seem to be the most oblivious or tentative, seemingly denying that there's any racism in France; and it's not until he talks to a few white people, about halfway through the piece, that we really start to get into th...
