Black Men are the most amazing men on the planet. They are the Rulers + Co-Creators of Civilization, the strength and will of our people and the perfect and only match for Black Women. Black men are multidimensional and extremely creative, as all Original People are. However, for centuries the Black Man have been emasculated, not only by others, but by himself.
Comedians have always had a love/hate relationship with me. They bring light of topics we do not speak about, but present it in a way that makes us “feel good”. From Redd Foxx, Richard Pryor to Martin Lawrence and Tyler Perry, a shift of masculinity has occurred in Black male comedians.
There is a way to present humor, mock another people and keep your dignity and masculinity. However, Hollywood and the conditioning of the masses teaches people it is completely okay for a Man to be in a wig and “act like a Woman”.
First – I have never seen a woman act like Madea, even in the deepest of the South.
Men have both feminine and masculine energies, as women do. However, generally men express masculinity more than women. The Black Man has always been a threat to Eurasians, because of his effortless charisma, talent and intelligence. A strong Black masculine Man is a feared man.
Even with the great Nat Turner, who led the rebellion in Virginia with 70 people, was emasculated when integrationist James Baldwin supported Styron’s distortion his story, making him a homosexual rapist in love with a white woman (confusing plot). Eurasians have always found a way to a way to ruin the image the most important of Black male figures, from political leaders, to entertainers.
Black Men were deemed bucks during the time of physical enslavement. They were to be violated by white men and women, in front of their wives and children. They were to dance around like jesters and when punished, raped, beaten and castrated for the plantation to see.
But now, the castration of Black men is more psychological than physical. They encouraged men to dress up in wigs, “mama/mammie” clothes, lipstick, glitter and other flamboyant choices of accessories. They are conditioned to believe that the more you “act like a woman” the more loyal fans you will get. And it works.
The most successful social media comedians are those who either 1) extremely sexually explicit 2) able to flip from the hyper masculine to hyper feminine role.
There is no problem with expressing femininity, the issue is where we are to believe black men cannot be funny unless they are wearing a wig. However, at what point do we stop promoting the image of Black Men in wigs?
Here are some examples of comedians cross-dressing:
- Miguel Nunez Jr. – Juwanna Mann
- Eddie Murphy – Norbit, Nuttty Professor
- Jamie Foxx – In Living Color
- Martin Lawrence – Martin, Big Mama’s Series
- Arsenio Hall – Coming to America
- Tyler Perry – Madea Series
- Chris Tucker – The 5th Element
- Flip Wilson – Flip Wilson TV Series
- Wesley Snipes – To Wong Foo, Thanks For Everything Julie Newmar
- Ving Rhames – Holiday Heart
If men are not being dressed in wigs and lipstick, they are violated in other ways of entertainment. Ving Rhames also starred in Pulp Fiction, playing Marcellus, the big Black powerful gangster, who later was sodomized by a beastly scrawny white security guard named Zed. Quentin Tarantino is not infantile in his dramatic presentation of the Afrikan man. He finds a way to exploit them and calls it art, as seen in Django and any movie starring Samuel L. Jackson.
The most popular films with a leading Black man as an influential man has limited options in outcome. The storyline generally has an influential black man, who is loved by his people, but also hated by some, and later assassinated (Malcolm X, Martin Luther King), or if he is not killed, he has played some kind of role where he subtly promotes white supremacy by integration (Mandela, The Butler). You would not see a popularized film about Robert Mugabe or Marcus Garvey, because they are strong in their Blackness and masculinity.
There is a strong need for Black media, as much as a strong need for Black empowerment. Positive propaganda for the race is needed more than negative propaganda against another. This is not to say, never speak ill about your enemy, but the focus should be on ourselves and not another. We deal with counter-attacks when need be. However, without Black media creating positive, influential , balanced in energy roles for Black Men and Black Women (this includes Vine Stars who promote violence between relationships, cross-dressing men and sexual exploitation of Black Women), we will continue to see a shift with further generations.
We are in the Age of Information and the Era of Technology. Our information is more than ever, received and given through technology, so social media has a huge effect on how the future generations will live. First, we cannot promote in any way these type of films, unless we are working towards getting rid of that image. One comment of approval on such imagery is too much and should not be tolerated or accepted.

We need our energy-balanced Black Men back in media or else our world we be filled with Young Thugs and Benji Browns.
