Acting for stereotypical black movie roles

This is an American movie that appeared to have come out late 90's, early 2000's. The main character is a struggling actor who is tired of only getting black stereotype roles, like slaves, drug dealers, or household help. One scene I remember is a commercial for an acting school for black people. The announcer, who is a black guy with a strong British accent, is staring at the camera detailing how you can learn how to play slave 1 or criminal at his school of acting. This was a satire movie ridiculing how some black actors only have criminal or slave roles available to them.
