"We are ALWAYS COMPLAINING. First of all Tyler Perry is a self-made multi-millionaire. The problem isn’t that TYLER PERRY exists. The problem is that there is only one Tyler Perry. When we don’t see other players in the game,WE ALWAYS dump on the guy or girl who’s hot.
I am tired of Black people being able to call other black people HORRIBLE names like "mammy" and "coon" without consequence. These terms are hurtful and damaging even when they come from ‘US’. I read where someone described J-Hud’s performance in Dreamgirls as a "stereotypical mammy" role.The commenter should have been ashamed to even utter those words about a sistah, an Oscar winner at that.
GIVE ME A BREAK!
When we have more producers, actors, studio heads, Oscar Winners that represent the muti-faceted African American experience, maybe then, will I tolerate some Tyler Perry criticism, criticism NOT hate.
Until then, I will reiterate, GIVE ME A BREAK!"
