    Tyler Perry complaining about "racial profiling"? That's rich, coming from a guy who has made millions by portraying black people as characatures and buffoons on television and in movies.

    This is the only fair attack I've seen on Perry in this thread. His movies are embarrassing which makes it hard to take his opinions on race/racism seriously.

    Not that I really care.. but you do realize the point of his plays aren't really about pointing out the caricatures but the people around those caricatures? It's kind of like saying Dogma is really about two stoners named Jay and Silent Bob or that Brokeback Mountain was really about gay men who like to dress like cowboys and not... you know everything else it was about.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    He still portrays black people like buffoons and Brokeback Mountain did not portray gay men like flamboyant, promiscuous stereotypes of gay men, so...

    Aside from the fact that Perry was making an illegal turn, hinted at his celebrity status deserving attention and said he was racially profiled when police pulled him over, yes...that is the only fair attack on Perry in this thread.

    Man that is such a great point, Di. Very nice.

    Wonder if anyone will ever bring that up to Mr. Perry?

    Otherwise, this ignorant **** needs to stop.

    And im not just talking about police officers either (even though they are the most commonly and mistakenly labeled racist). Im talking about every time someone claims something or someone or some act is racist with absolutely no evidence other than the race of the person offended or race(s) of the persons involved.
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Exactly.

    More discussions on what specifically leads one to believe that a person is racist or the act of a person was racially motivated would go far to prove that about (and im pulling this one out of my ass) 70%+ accusations of racism have absolutely no basis other than some preconceived (prejudiced) notion by the accuser.

    Call them ignorant fools and move on.

    Im tired of race baiting morons who claim racism based upon absolutely no evidence than "I JUST KNOW". Or "YOU KNOW IT/HE/THEY ARE/IS/WERE/WAS"

    Evidence is what I need, not prejudicial opinions that tell us more about the type of person the accuser is than the person they are accusing based off of pure prejudicial speculation.
