No Sir. Wrong... RT @Geniusbastard: @ToureX I hate that approach: You can't understand X b/c you haven't done A, B, C. Totally fallacious.

@Geniusbastard @ToureX. Look, fellas. If you don't go to or know about The Black Church, you will NOT get Tyler Perry's plays OR films.

@Geniusbastard @ToureX. I'm not saying you MUST enjoy them. But when it comes to art, it must be evaluated within its context.

@Geniusbastard @ToureX. What does someone look like critiquing, say, Public Enemy, and they are clueless about the BPP, Call & Response...

@Geniusbastard @ToureX. ...Jamaican party standards, where "B-Boy" comes from, all art is of culture, there is no "general art".

RT @Geniusbastard: Totally wrong. That's a BS excuse. I don't need to be Swedish to know Ingmar Bergman is a great filmmaker.

@Geniusbastard. Sir, is the film in English? Are you saying there are no cultural cues that would deepen your understanding of the film?

Exactly. And I agree. RT @Geniusbastard: Will I get certain nuances if I'm part of the target aud? Sure. But that only goes so far.

@Geniusbastard. There are certain aspects of TP's films that "translate" cross culturally (and humorously) as well, esp. cross dressing.

@Brandale2221. That's hilarious but TP would never direct Malcolm X because he feels betrayed by "Black Power". @CrispCoCo @LoveMySkip

@Brandale2221. Where was "Black Power" when Perry was getting the crap beat out of him? It was Auntie w/a gun... @CrispCoCo @LoveMySkip

@BlackCanseco. It's sad but true. Which leads me back to Tyler Perry's audience engagement. Stop ignoring it. @ToureX @Geniusbastard

@ERMcNairauthor. I agree and, really, that superficial solution-giving that TP gives makes me cringe. Ironically, some DO feel "hopeful"...

@jacklq. People are going to have to accept that Black People made Tyler Perry rich and famous, first and foremost. It's just a fact.

Welp. RT @MoreAndAgain: @convo_girl drgoddess if Tyler Perry is harming the race, then so is Spike Lee.

Alright then. RT @MoreAndAgain: @convo_girl drgoddess furthermore, with ALL that's going on, I don't believe either's harming the race.

Welp. RT @BrotherJesse: If u condemn things u don't like yet won't support the ppl whose producing what u do like, that's hypocritical.

I've seen this. SMH. RT @UrFavCharity: and the consensus is that "she deserved it" there were people clapping in theaters when it happened

Initially I tried to comment but found myself overwhelmed by the experience (Chirpstory). But now I'm thinking better. Short & brief: To see these two go at it can only be a symptom of anemia. We need more blood in theater,much more.
