Tyler Perry: 'All African American Cast Are On The Verge Of Becoming Extinct'

Tyler Perry: 'All African American Cast Are On The Verge Of Becoming Extinct'

Commented Jan 19, 2012 at 22:31:01 in Black Voices

“I'm amazed at how the world has passed Tyler Perry by. He and Lucas belong back in 2002 with their ideas. If things are going as planned in society, we should ideally leave racism behind, not swing the pendulum from one fading extreme to a snowballing extreme. Why no full black cast? The same reason you don't have an all asian cast in hollywood or an all Indian cast; because it's not realistic. Even if the country was 90% one race, you would still see the other 10% throughout your day. There's actually no evil hiding behind it, it's just not the way the world is; there's more than 1 race, and nobody under 30 in America cares.”

“i think it's funny that i never heard a black person talk about "post racism". Racism is VERY much alive.”

“Wow great repetition of talking points. There are many stories that are about one class of people who have risen to greatness in the face of adversity. African Americans were viewed as dirt in this country in WW II. Yet they strove to serve the country and gave their lives for people who despised them. We can say the same for Amerinds and the Nisei. If no one under 30 cares than they are basically forgetting the people who died and risked their lives to make sure they have the freedom they have today. Including my dad. A Jewish guy in a country that had signs in restaurants that said no Jews and dogs allowed who was shot down in WW II and spent 10 months of his life in a Nazi camp. The world has not passed Perry and Lucas by at all. They just don't have a fantastical sense of history, if at all, or society.”

“It's called maximum population density and the closer we get to it, the more we have to compromise our food quality standards. Soylent Green...it's people.”

“Very scary Brave New World were entering into. Big Brother exists and the only thing George Orwell got wrong was the date.

What's even worse is that I agree with you and feel humanity is very much like a yeast culture and the petri dish is getting full.

The only way for the world's governments to settle this overpopulation problem is for them to finally have WW3. I don't like it & don't think it's a good idea, but they don't care about you or me.

Killing people is all they know. Sucks, don't it?”

“Uhhhh, yes, people DO DIE from ingesting lactose and those who don't are supporting a long lasting immunodefficiency because their body is fighting to break down the lactose. People who are lactose intolerant and gluten intolerant lack the ability to break down those 2 ammino acid chains so any lactose or gluten they injest can be equated to putting sugar in the gas tank of a car; it may or may not kill the engine, but it is garaunteed that it screwed something up in there and performance will suffer. Granted, it is better to eat than starve to death, but if you are gluten intolerant or lactose intolerant (more severe cases are called Celiac Disease), then you should do everything you can to avoid eating those foods. Intolerance is a bad word because they are both the exact same as food allergies only the mechanism in which they destroy your body is different.”

“what if you're pulled over after having 2 beers (past the legal limit)? what about pot smokers? what about people who can't pay fines for broken tail lights because they struggle to pay bills each week, so the fine continuously gets increased (worse than credit card debt). A lot of people are in jail for petty crimes that have been deemed crimes as a method of taxation.”

“don't blame taylor swift lady; you completely bought into the marketing. You said she "writes her own lyrics and is determined to make it in this business"...that's what they ALL SAY. They've been saying it since the 70s. It is never true. You were disappointed because you realized you had been duped.”

“Get out in the open and what? be ignored? yep.

Any attempt to actually have people pay attention to your actions in this modern day world results in being arrested. Think before you post friend.”

Christopher Luther on Aug 13, 2011 at 20:18:29

“You're exactly right, and the people who protested in the open knew and accepted that they would be punished. They knew that being punished for breaking an unjust law would engender sympathy for their cause. They had the courage to stand for their beliefs while remain nonviolent and nondestructive and, therefore, true to the principles they represented.

Anonymous' hijinks will solve nothing. If they think they're going to accomplish any lasting good, they're horribly deluded. Activity like this is going to lead to less freedom, not more.”

“fully agree. Though I haven't been fired, I learned quickly in many jobs that the open door policy is garbage. "yes, please do tells us your problems and let us know if we can be held legally liable...if not, then it's probably cheaper and easier to fire you and keep your flawed boss".”

“I hope everyone is prepared to have their expectations dashed. The continuous release of photos is significantly giving away the plot; so nothing is really going to come as a surprise. It will be as though we've all already watched bits and pieces of it but never really caught the whole thing. Then when you watch it...it's all expected.”
