For Colored Girls, Tyler Perry, and the Black male image in the media

The following are comments from National Newspaper: The Washington Post

“I am an African-American male and I know multitudes of black fathers and mothers who are raising their families and living responsibly. These Tyler Perry clowns are the exception, not the rule.”
