Re: “Andisheh Nouraee's diary of a confused beige man

Black man here (seems like one always has to do the racial disclaimer in these situations). Anywho, unlike almost all of my friends and associates, I LOATHE anything with Tyler Perry's name or moniker attached to it. Perhaps it is the mindnumbing manner by which he panders to his female audience. Possibly it is his cookie cutter moralism that sends mixed messages about gender roles in Black America. Mayhaps it is his refusal to do anything NEW, fresh, exciting, or challenging instead opting for the kind of head-nodding affirmation that is full of simplistic cultural signifiers and light on any remote kind of intellectual engagement. Possibly I cannot stand thelack of nuance or sophistication in anything that Mr. Perry passes off as "humor." Mayhaps I am completely turned off by Mr. Perry's incessant suggestion that Black women can be neither complete nor fulfilled unless they have "the love of a good man." Whatever it is either singularly or in any combination, Tyler Perry's work is the epitome of mediocrity and creative laziness that infects so much of what passes for Black culture today.
