Tyler Perry Asked Why his New Show has So Many White People; His Response? AWESOME

Tyler Perry is known for his hilarious shows and movies. Are you familiar with the Madea movies? Yeah, those are all from Tyler Perry. How about “Meet the Browns?” Again, Tyler Perry. What about “House of Payne” and “For Better or Worse?” Yep, those are also by Tyler Perry.

As a director, he has been a huge employer of black actors and actresses with black people being the predominant focus of the aforementioned series and movies. But, his latest venture, “Too Close to Home,” on TLC, focuses on a white family and, obviously, in today’s race-obsessed society, that is not okay.

A reporter with TMZ stopped Perry recently and asked him why mostly white people are cast in his new show. He added, “I don’t think it’s fair. but is there something to —”

Seriously? Do you know what the man has done for the careers of black actors and actresses in Hollywood? But, that’s beside the point, very obviously for this reporter. Tyler Perry, and good for him, tells the reporter what’s what and it’s absolutely fantastic.

Perry, cutting the reporter off mid-sentence, responded, “Are you really asking me about that? Are you really asking me about that?”

But, he didn’t stop there.

“That’s so ridiculous, man. People are people. If you write the story about a woman and man who’s having pain and issues and trying to get over things, it’s the same way for a white person for a black person or for anybody else.”

“People are people, man. People need to let all that go.”

Good for Tyler Perry for not falling into the race-baiting trap but he’d better watch out. He may just become the latest victim of Black Twitter and Black Lives Matter who demand that everyone, especially black people, fall in line with their way of thinking when it comes to race relations…or else.
