Reply to "Brotha of the Week: Byron Allen"

  Oh Dr. Watkins don't you DARE minimize Tyler Perry.  He gave movies to black women HOLLYWOOD did not.  He gave black woman movies where they can sit in the same livingroom and watch it with their children.  Perry gave black women their self-esteem that says they are VALUED too.  As why he is popular and successful cuz he get black women and unlike HOLLYWOOD...not saying that every black woman you see on screen is a whore, prostitute or crack head.  He did a lot to bring positivity in black women's image.  What the fock have Byron done to contribute to the imagery of black people...let alone women?  Absolutely NOTHING.  Again.....there is MORE to life than just money and power.  Those things you CAN'T take with you.  But dignity, integrity, self-worth, value, self-respect, compassion, humility....you can take ALL those things with you when you leave this earth.  And those things are worth far MORE...than any material thing HOLLYWOOD and Byron have to offer. Just hearing the good doctor talk like this makes me think he has no black females in his family.    Sometimes men are just tooooooooooo visual.  What a pity.  Cuz it take more than visuality to raise them.  But!
