Tyler Perry Bashes Black Men For Box Office DollarsNovember 8th, 2010
There’s a new movie in theaters which critics say places black men in a very negative light — and they say, it’s all thanks to Tyler Perry. In essence, it’s just another house nigga movie — which is nothing less than what I’d expect from top sell-out Tyler Perry.
According to one of today’s top African American leaders, Dr. Boyce Watkins, the Perry film “For Colored Girls” points to the black man as a rapist, a thief, an abuser and murderer of his own kids, a pimp and a brother who’s gay on the down low.
No one can argue that these can be used as powerful negative reinforcements once they hit the silver screen, so it’s not surprising that the man who Reverand Al Sharpton points to as “the Finance Professor for Black America and one of the most impactful social commentators in the country” overheard great ignorance from audience members sitting in the theater, as he watched the movie.
Here’s what Dr. Boyce Watkins says he heard a white woman say as she watched the Perry flick:
“Those poor black women. Why in the world do they remain loyal to those horrible men?.”
Apparently the racist film makers in Hollywood are no longer pressed to create negative film stereotype about blacks. Know why? Because they have House Nigga’s like Lee Daniels and Tyler Perry doing their dirty work mane.
Don’t you agree?
