In just two more roles you can have very race, gender, and age.
They are "acting a fool" and Madea.
I get it, they're all a white square. How meta.
slathering on irony with the term meta is actually more meta.
I've seen three Tyler Perry films. Two of of them had one white character in the whole damn movie, one had none. Interestingly, they were all women as well:
Dairy of a Mad Black Woman:
A bitchy, airheaded white woman that the black woman main character's husband is having an affair with.
Madea's Family Reunion:
None, or if they were such insignificant roles the characters didn't even have names/were extras.
Madea Goes to Jail:
A mean, bully, muscular, stereotypical bulldyke lesbian who keeps bullying a young new black immate around. Madea and said new immate end up throwing the buff white lesbian into a laundry hamper and beating the shit out of her. In the end, they earn the vicious white lesbian's shame and respect and the lesbian learns valuable lessons from Madea.
That all being said, I did not watch this video, and I do not have to in order to rate it. Five stars of evil for anything directed by Tyler Perry.
The roles for black women aren't really any deeper.
oh god, it's so hard for white women to find roles in Hollywood. We really should encourage the development of a "white cinema", where white actors and white people can finally tell their stories
After all, Tyler Perry and movies with black people are the single most important cultural forces in all of the media
You're missing the boat by a pretty wide margin here. Stereotypes aren't a good thing, it doesn't matter who's writing them.
If those are stereotypes I must live in the Matrix. Nasty White Sales Lady, Corporate White Boss, and Hooker are the copy pasted NPCs of everywhere.
Gawd, only a racist piece of shit would just ASSUME that this would be an arguement!!!
She was doing some affirmative acting right there.
As seen in Tyler Perry's "Madea In Outer Space" and Tyler Perry's "Why Did I Fart During Church?" coming soon to TBS.

I watch and appreciate Spike Lee movies! Acknowledge how smart I am before I become even angrier at everything!
