All this talk about Tyler Perry's movies being buffoonish and ignorant is starting to piss me off. Yes I said it!!
This blog may cost BronzeSparkles a few fans but we're willing to risk that to speak on how we feel. The dialog is going nuts with harsh criticism about our boy and we don't like it! TP haters may be missing a chip inside them that blocks them from appreciating
People need to stop hating on greatness. He is one of the few African American major players in the entertainment industry. People forget that he produces many positive images and uplifting lessons in his storylines and gives work to underrated working actors.
I believe much of the criticism comes from shame. Yes, I said it. People are afraid of what society will think of African Americans. But afraid of what? Everybody is not the Cosbys and TP films tackle real issues and emphasize the importance of a family structure as well as religion and spirituality.
There is so much more to TP Productions than Madea. Madea is not Norbit or Big Mama. Should all the positive aspects of TP's work be overshadowed by Madea? If she was thinner would that make some of you happy? If she was played by a real woman would that make some of you happy? If there was no rambunctious matriarch present at all would that make some of you happy? Why do some of you expect Tyler Perry to be an accurate representation of all black people? Why put that weight on someone's shoulders when it is impossible? His films deal with real issues. I know some of you are afraid of the world seeing thugs, crackheads, and overweight black people *gasp* but there are always lessons learned in the end and the family comes together! Since when is that bad? People deal with hardships everyday but through the Grace of God they get through it. Perseverance and togetherness are strong themes in Perry's movies, how can you be mad at that?
And if you don't like Tyler Perry then get your own shit together so you can produce your own plays and movies and spread the message that you want to spread. You can't fault the man for bringing jobs and employment into the community and paving the way for many more to come after him.
|now let that marinate on yo ass!|
Ya feel me?
