Wow! This is the first time I picked up a CL and had to read the cover story first. I did this because the cover story posed the same question I've asked myself as a black man. I also came to the same conclusion that Mr. Nouraee did. I can support Tyler Perry as a man, but I can't get into his movies because I'm not a woman. I have sat with black women and have been subjected to a couple of Mr. Perry's movies and was later called a "hater" and had my blackness questioned because I didn't find the movie entertaining or the least bit funny. With that being said, after reading some of the other comments it feels good that I'm not alone. Again I'd like to wish Mr. Perry well in his endeavors, but I personally just can't put my money in his pockets. Also, I'd like to thank Mr. Nouraee for a compelling article and keep up the great work on "Your War Questions Answered". Peace.
