Black Shows Not Made for Blacks
In a 1970's issue of Human Behavior magazine titled "TV in Black Face" the white boss had a problem with a black writer's writing. He called her into the office. "I'm telling you this because you work here," he said."Black comedies aren't made for black people. They are made for whites to laugh at blacks." The article then showed how Good Times and other shows, advertised products for whites as this was the target audience.
Tyler Perry may be black, but he is aware that a certain population of whites want to laugh at blacks not with blacks for entertainment.
