Chimamanda Adichie: The Danger of a Single Story

This is a powerful TED talk detailing why it's dangerous to only have a 'single story' or one viewpoint about individuals, races and countries. It's a fascinating look at how stereotypes work and what makes them so dangerous (the 13 minute mark has some great quotes).

For some reason the video doesn't show up in google reader, so here's a link to the TED page for this talk.
