Tyler Perry: Cunning or Cooning?

Posted by dwalkerspeaking on

by Demetrius D. Walker Nobody in Hollywood can hold a candle to Tyler Perry's meteoric rise to stardom in the last decade.  From niche market gospel plays to Black blockbuster bravado, Perry is the American Dream realized - a rags to riches phenomenon.  Despite Tyler Perry's cinematic and syndicated success, anchored in applying Christian family values to modern day strife, there are those who choose to label the brother a sell-out.  In defense of America's first Black movie mogul, these haters are nothing more than ornery crabs in a barrel.
