Tyler Perry in drag again? What a surprise!

I’m going to be blunt with you. I am not a big fan of Tyler Perry. I think too many of his films insult the intelligence of black people. But for some strange reason black people(mostly black women)love this films. And why not? Look at the awards he’s won for his buffoonery.

MTV Movie Awards

  • 2006, Best Comedic Performance (Madea’s Family Reunion)
  • 2006, Breakthrough Male Performance (Diary of a Mad Black Woman)                                                    Now don’t get me wrong. I love to see black people making money and being successful. But at what expense? Too many of his films portray black people as thugs,hustlers,crack heads,clowns and over the top buffoons. That also includes his television shows. About ten years ago I saw his play “Madea Goes to Jail”. I went with some family members. This was before he was a hit in Hollywood.It had a few laughs but it was not worth the money I paid for those tickets. The shucking and jiving seemed like I was in a time warp to the year 1910. I seriously wanted my money back. I also think Perry is a closet homosexual. And I wish he would just come out the closet and be done with it. While I’m thinking about it,Queen Latifah should come out also. (It’s okay Queen,we all know.) I’m tired of seeing black men dress up in drag. Everyone from from Flip Wilson,Wesley Snipes,Martin Lawrence,Chris Tucker,Charles Barkley,Shaquille O’Neal,Eddie Murphy and Carmelo Anthony have all did it. It’s kind of a rite of passage for black men in Hollywood. It shows the world that no matter how much money and fame you get–you’re still the white man’s bitch! We as black men should not stand for this nonsense anymore. If that’s what you have to do in Hollywood to make it–tell them you’ll make it another way.  I know some will say that Tyler was molested as a child and that’s the reason for his “female mannerisms”. So what! It’s still no excuse to dress up in drag every other film. If that wasn’t enough,he also produced that garbage disguised as film called “Precious”. Precious was one of the worst films I’ve EVER seen in my life. I lost total respect for him after that. Same goes for Oprah Winfrey for lending her name to that trash. Now he’s in another film called “Madea’s Witness Protection”.  From looking at the trailer there seems to be a lot of white folks in this one. I guess that means he’s finally made to the big time. And yes,he’s in drag again. How many times can we watch this before it’s not funny anymore? In the past I’ve supported his films just to support a fellow black man trying to make it. But there comes a time when skin color doesn’t matter anymore. We have to support brothers and sistas for doing what’s right. We can no longer support films that degrade us,insult us or support white supremacy.  Seeing black stereotypes over and over again starts to be a “drag”.

  1. I have yet to see these famous black filmmakers and directors (Tyler Perry, Spike Lee, etc) make films about Egypt/Kemet. Those films should be made instead.
