Mike Epps’ got “Africa” jokes

Remember Mikko’s post on African Jokes? Comedian Mike Epps, a few days before he threatened his daughter with violence, gets some cheap laughs at the expense of Nigerians on late night US television.* Host Conan O’Brien gently guides him away.

* Btw, Epps is merely repeating an old trope among African American comedians that some people find funny and leave others cringing.
