  • Man it sucks how these artists just lay out all their family business like he said his dad use to beat his mom. What if he gave his life to Christ and repented of what he did to his wife? Why you gonna go and say stuff like that. That's not Christ like. Bible said that God knew that Joseph was a Just man and when Joseph found out Mary was pregnant he wanted to put her away privately. Some things you do privately because you never know what the future holds for that person. Anyways Perry is on the broadway that leads to destruction. The world is suppose to hate true Christians not wanting to yoke up with them. There is no separation as their should be and the world loves you Mr Perry.

  • This speech would be even more empowering if BET wasn't own by Viacom and if this was hosted by an actual black company but none the less Tyler Perry is and should be an inspiration for blacks to put aside this black victim bs and go out and get it and not only in the entertainment business, venture into IT, Owning landing and farming industry, distribution centers, trucking companies, build your own railroad, etc, build sh*t that will help even the field by controlling your own resources for necessities

  • Negative media images and stereotypes of African Americans have been a consistent theme historically in American mass media (Mastro and Tropp 2004). The media framing of race and class are dominant themes in American mass media, used to maintain the status quo of Anglo American hegemony and its economic and social hierarchy (Clark 1969; Shohat and Stam 1994). The concept of hegemony was developed by Antonio Gramsci. In broad terms it describes a system of suppression and domination through which both implicit and implied forces are used to manipulate the oppressed into accepting a subjugated status (Chaudhuri 1988; Lears 1985). In the American system of hegemony, mass McNair Scholars JournalsVolume 13 media became an explicit tool from the movie Birth of a Nation (Griffith 1915). The movie depicted the majority if not all African Americans as dumb, lazy, dishonest, and hyper sexual. These types of media depictions represent American cultural hegemony, as well as illustrate the psychological force of negative media stereotypes needed to construct the same American cultural hegemony (Pierre 1999). American cultural hegemony’s resulting mass media artifacts of the 20th century reflect a systematic creation and distribution of negative images and stereotypes of African Americans (Clark 1969; Jhally and Lewis 1992; Pierre 1999; Shohat and Stam 1994). Once fully constructed, the system of cultural hegemony no longer requires the presence of the dominant group and its implied force to function. The subjugated status of the oppressed minorities is internalized, accepted and embraced. The superior status of the dominant group is no longer questioned, it is deemed just and fair (Fitzgerald 2010). At full manifestation, members of the oppressed minority can be placed in positions of power within the hegemonic system and it will still function no differently. Critical scholars have begun to question whether Perry fits the profile of the oppressed minority in a position of power functioning as an agent of American cultural hegemony (Coleman 2006; Harris and Tassie 2011; Heartley 2011; Lyle 2011; Patterson 2011). The Black Crime Construct and Mass Incarceration Mass media and mass incarceration of African Americans are used to construct cultural hegemony (Alexander 2010; Dixon 2008). As noted by Alexander (2010) and Dixon (2008), black crime was a frequent theme in American nightly news media as it disproportionally portrayed African Americans engaged in criminal behavior contrary to the actual demographic. A review of American media and literature shows a pattern of specific cultural artifacts that normalize the mass incarceration of African Americans. The United States incarcerates more people than any other country in the world, which includes per capita and total incarcerated (Alexander 2010; Clear 2008; Roberts 2004; Walmsley 2011) Michele Alexander’s study of primary and secondary data detailed the disproportional rate at which African Americans and minorities in general are being incarcerated. The underlying disparity in rates of incarceration is a function of economic disparity rather than of genetic social behavior patterns (Alexander 2010; Roberts 2004). Alexander’s book noted that if controlled for socio- economic status, rates of incarceration between whites and non-whites are nearly identical. While the phenomenon of mass incarceration began as an answer to the crack epidemic and resulting drug war of the 1980s, the public acceptance and justification was largely achieved through mediated messages of “black crime” associated with 1980’s crack cocaine epidemic (Alexander 2010). Any discussion or depiction of incarceration of African Americans would certainly have to include reference to the drug war and their disproportional rates of incarceration.

  • All you people talking and being a follower of all the ones that didnt know what Tyler was doing in silence for black people. You better own them muthfukkin words right now. All u saw was a man in a dress and like alot of you black people do...you began to talk mountains of shit about him. But oh..it wasnt about being a black man that could look good and acceptable for the other races, or trying to make black people look good in the presence of other races it was about just being a decent black man...no scratch that, it was just a decent human being period. And as you can see he's the first black man to own a movie studio. Hell they even shot Marvel Films there. And in case yall didnt know, Hollywood is almost passe Atlanta, Georgia is becoming the place for movies now. He's ahead of us in that right.
