Tyler Perry’s Madea Goes to Jail made $90 million at the box office. This weekend, Madea’s Big Happy Family debuts and could arguably make Tyler Perry’s drag act the most profitable in history. Or are audiences over black men in drag?

Madea as Black Swan

Spike Lee apparently has an opinion about black men in drag and has even been calling Tyler Perry the new “coon.”  Spike Lee’s comments are similar to blogger Darryl James, who says that these images of black men in drag are “self castrating.”  He continues.. “black men in drag is one of the new coons…It’s hip and chic and the stereotype is comfortable for all who may have fear of a strong black man.”  Read his blog post here.

 

NoMoreDownLow.TV recently did a segment on America’s obsession with black men in drag.  Find out what Tyler Perry had to say in our episode below…
