"When it actually matters, you know? When you’re auditioning for, you know, for your work, your career, your life. You’re an adult, it’s not just funny games, you’re actually trying to build something and when it doesn’t work out, you start to kind of get.. you know."

Why Tyler Perry is problematic

bellecosby:

  • Constantly creates story lines about sad angry defenseless black women who are delivered from their misery by a man.
  • Has said that “black people don’t go to therapy they go to church” on several occasions
  • Says Aids/HIV is “the sinner’s disease” and uses it as a form of punishment in this movie Temptation
  • Says women are “better” cheaters
  • Trasnphobia in Why Did I Get Married Too when one of the female character sends a transgender strip o gram to her ex husbands work place and says “if you want to be a bitch, here’s your bitch”
  • Characters like Madea and Uncle Joe mimic minstrel show characters
  • Madea is reminiscent of the Mammy archetype 
  • Fat shaming in Why Did I Get Married.: A female character is emotionally abused by her husband and at the end loses weight with the help of her new husband
  • In Temptation the main female character is raped, but it’s passed off as aggressive sex
  • How in Temptation we’re supposed to believe it’s Judith’s fault that she’s abused, raped, and later contracts HIV because she cheats on her husband

Photos: Survivors of North Carolina’s Eugenics Program
Photographs by Andy McMillan / Text by Maya Dusenbery

Between 1929 and 1974, North Carolina sterilized more than 7,500 of its residents. Most were operated on without their consent, having been deemed “feebleminded” and unfit to reproduce by the state Eugenics Board. Eighty-five percent were women; about 40 percent were black or Native American. As many as 2,000 victims are thought to still be alive.  [Read more.]
