Recently, I went to see the latest Tyler Perry movie and though I wasn't impressed, I realized that everyone has a place in the world of entertainment. Then I thought about how the generation before me felt movies like Scream Blacula Scream were an atrocity (their words, not mine) compared to classics like Stormy Weather.
Now let me ask you this. Is a person less than because they miss Homeboys in Outer Space? Does reading August Wilson or James Baldwin automatically make you superior?
My take is that there are many things that bring down the Black race and TV or movies ain't one of them. Even the news doesn't give an accurate portrayal of those things positive in the Black community.
I don't have a studio (hell, I barely have a home office) and I can clown with the best of them but this is my small contribution to celebrating what is positive about being Black in America.
