Video: Courtland Milloy and Vanessa Williams on 'For Colored Girls'

Nov 11, 2010

Join Courtland Milloy and Vanessa Williams as they discuss Tyler Perry's new movie, "For Colored Girls."

In his recent columns, Milloy has criticized Perry and his portrayal of black men. He wrote Tuesday, "Perry is assisting Hollywood in doing nothing more than projecting the evil of the world onto black men, making us look worse than we are so others can feel better about themselves."

Are the stories any less true, because the men in them were black ? Would you rather we go back to being just maids and butlers and waiters . The men in the movie were real with all the good and evil that comes with human flaws. It was a great movie,

An article protesting the fact that some movies characterize black men as violent and thuggish is not well-served by a headline suggesting that black men aggrieved by these movies should consider homicide. Milloy, did you actually write this horrible headline?
