Peace be upon you
Nice drop Pragmatic, and I agree with Spike Lee about the garbage Tyler Perry comes out with. Still, with the b***s*** he done like "JUNGLE FEVER" and the "MALCOLM X" movie, Lee haven't kept up on the persona of being Black and strong at times himself.
Also, in the video they were talkin' about Perry? Sh*t, what the Wayans, they're worse!!!
SHit yeah the damn Waynes are worst but Perry is the most notable at the present moment. He gets too much respect for doing his bullshit and the media seems to eat it up. They are in the building process of his image and they love the image that he is holding to.
Spike.......has very little room to talk none of his movies (Other than Malcolm X) was really impactful (Do the Right Thing could be said to be a great film but still too unrealistic)
"We may be investigated, incarcerated or murdered for the things we dare to write...
But we are young and Black, fearless and free...Every poem, every incandescent word is a personal revolution"Celeste "ayasha" Golden (my queen rest well and I'll see you when I get there.)
i would love to see a movie put together with Spike Lee's directing skills, with Tyler Perry's mainstream commercial appeal AND throw in the insight of Professor Griff...........put sumthin meaningful out but ALSO get major paper
Too $hort - Gettin It
tyler peryys movies are almost all the same. black family dealing iwth issues such as , aids, kids, divorce, and other cliche bullshit, then a huge black "woman" bust in and makes a joke about hurting someone, and in the end the wole family is happy and everything workes out as some bullshit r&b song plays in the back gorund. sorry for the run-on sentance

I've been saying this exact same thing for years. I'm just glad that someone Black and famous said it publicly.
Having directed Bamboozled, Spike definitely knows about coonery, buffoonery and neo-minstrelsy.
Every time I see Tyler Perry movies and TV shows spreading his brand of stereotypical minstrel tropes it turns my stomach.
I'm just waiting for him to team up with Lil Wayne, Lil John and the Yin Yang Twins and come out with a Hip Hop/religious/dance movie about Madea visiting a ghetto down South, where she teams up with some Crunksters to organize a dance competition at the local church to help her niece find a "good man" to raise her 3 children fathered by 3 different men.
I think I just threw up in my mouth a little...
