Everyone is familiar with Madea from Tyler Perry. He has made a fortune from being a funny black woman with ghetto DNA all thru her. Now here comes the double standard.
Comedienne and professional drag queen Chuck Knipp thinks that it
should. He has cultivated his own version of Black woman drag queen
comedy under the titles ‘Shirley Q. Liquor’ and ‘Betty Butterfield.’
Knipp’s portrayal of a Black woman is causing a stir for some because he
is a White man from Canada. People question whether or not these are
just jokes or if he is really a racist White man that is using his drag
routine to disrespect Black women. This doubt has launched people to
launch campaigns against the comedian.
Sometimes I see why people don't take us seriously because we accept b******* from our own, but the minute someone that doesn't look like us tries it, we are ready to picket and bring down. Personally, I think Tyler Perry is a detriment to the image of black women with his Madea Scripts so me thinking this pilgrim is stupid is consistent. But please explain to me the difference between Madea and Shirley Liquor? Which one gives a better spin on black women? Hell on black men for that matter? It coincides to me with black people using the N-word and wanting to beat another person's ass for using the same word. If the intent is the same, which is comedy, why is one okay and not the other?
