I was sitting at home bored the other evening flipping channels and I came across Tyler Perry's "Meet the Browns" television sitcom. With nothing else to watch I decided to give the show a try, the worst mistake of my life. The show was terrible. I couldn't decide which was worse the very annoying laugh track that seemed to go off every 5 seconds at what was supposed to be humor or the idiot dressed in very tightly fitting clothes who seems to be slightly retarded. How can such a great writer in Tyler Perry who has found success in making us laugh and opening our eyes to the struggles of everyday life with his great stage plays and movies fall so far off base with this terrible television show. At this point in his career I'm sure he has people who write and direct some of his productions for him, I would hate to believe that he writes the material for "Meet the Browns." This show is an embarrassment and a dark cloud over all of the successful things that he has produced thus far in his career. With there being a major shortage of African-American sitcoms on television now days its very sad that "Meet the Browns" is all we have to represent us to the world. When I hear the name of that show all I can think about is the seemingly out of shape black man, dressed up in skin tight clothing, with a very high pitched voice who doesn't seem to have any kind of education. Sure, you may say, "stop trippin' that its just a television show," but to some its symbolic of how far the black man has fallen from prominence. They laugh at us, saying that they have us right where they want us. Don't get me wrong, I know that it didn't began with this show and I know it doesn't end with this show. There is enough blame to go around 1000 times over and honestly I think the blame game has gotten old, I think it's time for the change game. It's time to turn our backs on negative media and I mean that for everyone. Any rapper, singer entertainer or athlete that promotes Black Hate we should stop supporting. Lets stop listening to and buying music and movies that promote hatred of our people and especially our women by calling them B's and H's or saying that we should use and play them or media that promotes them as being only sexual objects and not the Queens that they truly are. Its time we become more conscience of this hate media that we've been supporting for years now. Lets demand change from the radio and television stations and tell them we don't want to hear it or see it any longer. Lets start standing for something instead of nothing, regain our voice that has be silent for almost 4 decades now. We need our Women to be Ladies and we men must treat them as such and we need our Men to be Men and start acting as such. Once we end the division we can then stop being conquered

bad message on family values. someboy sold out.

Obvious racial degradement. Tylerr perry is not who he says he is beacue honestly if he can get a show on a network it should so wholesome families the drama is not a depiction of actual reality . I would atleast expect him to respect the belief n god he claims to know. Not make a joke out of the characters who have solid footing. And thee notion of right and wrong. Seems the characters with good advice are mocked and ridiculed. Weird.

Bad to the bone

Hate it. It just promotes more stereotypes of Blacks. No need to watch. I would consider the show socially violent.
