- Constantly creates story lines about sad angry defenseless black women who are delivered from their misery by a man.
- Has said that “black people don’t go to therapy they go to church” on several occasions
- Says Aids/HIV is “the sinner’s disease” and uses it as a form of punishment in this movie
Oh shut the fuck up
We have ONE black man being successful in Hollywood and all black people can do is criticize!
How about YOU make better movies than If you have such an issue with him.
I’m over people criticizing but aren’t doing anything but sitting on their ass complaining !
There’s plenty of directors and people in Hollywood putting out fucked up messages but you choose to criticize a black man making a man for us in the industry & making his own art and putting out his stories as he chooses to write.
Well maybe if the ONE black man didn’t promote such harmful messages about the black community than maybe I could shut the fuck up.
Tyler Perry likes to act that he’s the voice of black life, especially for southern black life, and he paints a detrimental and stereotypical depictions that has been used against us for as long as black people have been on TV.
I’m not going to be easy on him because he’s a black man making it, if anything I’m going to be harsher because white people look at people like him making misrepresentation and think that it’s accurate because he’s a black person it’s obviously must be accurate.
No. He acts like he’s the voice of himself. He’s an ARTIST. He puts out messages about HIMSELF, HIS FAMILY, AND HOW HE SEES THE WORLD.
And white people aint seeing anything but black people failing to support each other, but that’s nothing new. That’s all y’all niggers know
Oh yes the black community needs to go ahead needs to go ahead and support someone who’s racist, sexist, ableist, transphobic,and uses religion to degrade people.
Oh yea your right. Because he’s the only one in Hollywood doing it. So instead of calling out everyone else… u call out the only successful black film maker right now. Sounds legit
Number 1 NOBODY IS ABOVE CRITICISM not Barack, not Perry, not even Spike. 2. I respect Perry for what he has accomplished and the opportunities that he has given to black actors and black writers but that doesn’t dismiss him from the detrimental imagery that he consistently portrays. Do other black directors/writers profit from depicting black stereotypes absolutely but what makes Perry different is the amount of influence that he has surmounted on the black community and the resources that he has at his disposal to create quality black films. I don’t want to tear Tyler Perry down, my only goal is to challenge people to have critical perceptions of cultural imagery and to hope that Perry finds complexity within Black narratives and Black women.
I appreciate the above narrative, especially the last comment. No work of art will ever be perfect nor will it be above criticisms. I think it is important to critique not only the art, but also the critique because critique is not always perfect either and is often times problematic. Moreover, I think we can accept the goods and bads of TP’s work. For example, as a Christian, I appreciate The Diary of a Mad Black Woman’s message of religious transformation and redemption, but do I appreciate the depiction of Kimberly Elise’s character as a woman? Not so much. Do I appreciate Madea’s instinct to protect her family and promoting that Kim’s character take her lawful rights as a wife? Absolutely. I think in these conversations it’s also important to state what is the standard for a black film? I cannot think of a black film that does not have problematics in it.

It is an unusual school in an unusual location and is run by an unusual teacher.
Rajesh Kumar is a shopkeeper by profession but spends hours every morning teaching around 80 children from the poorest of the poor in India’s capital.
The 43-year-old visited the construction of the Delhi transit station a few years ago and was disturbed by the sight of many children playing at the site instead of attending school.
When he questioned the parents working at the sites they all said there were no schools in the vicinity and no one cared.
Consequently, his open-air class room was born - between pillars and beneath the tracks of the Delhi transit system, known as the Metro.
Every few minutes a train passes above, the children unperturbed by its sounds.
There are no chairs or tables and the children sit on rolls of polystyrene foam placed on the rubble.
Three rectangular patches of wall are painted black and used as a blackboard.
Anonymous donors have contributed cardigans, books, shoes and stationery for the children, as their parents cannot afford them.
One unnamed individual sends a bag full of biscuits and fruit juice for the pupils every day - another incentive for the children to turn up for their studies.
this is what I would like my tax dollars to go to, NOT WAR, THIS
