I think Tyler Perry is trying to teach faith and personal responsibility. He also made "Why Did I Get Married" that didn't have Madea and Mr. Brown in it.People complained about the Huxtable's not portraying the average black family as well, even though Cosby was breaking those negative stereotypes. I heard a lot of blacks say "that's not real". So.... showing a black man and woman that's hard working, that love each other, and are committed to their marriage and raising responsible children, is responded to with disdain by some.If anything, we should be doing more to reinforce positive images of black people.Spike Lee movies tend to have a message that "we are so inferior we have to blame the white man for our misery", that tends to reinforce counterproductiveness.
