    Spike used to talk shit about Perry and his movies. There's no misunderstanding

      That's how all Black People should be regardless of the industry they are in. STAY ON CODE. It's not too late to apply this 👊🏿✊🏿

        I agree with everything he said!!!...I also love that he took responsibility for not initially speaking on the issue in quite the right way...

          I think at some point we will see a team up of those two - Spike lee & Tyler Perry. I think it's coming sooner than we all would think.

                Mr Powell, a true legend who wants us to win. I agree with what he said about putting each other down.

                  I agree with Clifton. Never should we put down one another publicly. Spike was wrong & I'm glad he fixed it.

                              That old saying should have been handled in house. The way it was done was so unnecessary. Glad they were able to talk it out.

                                                Whether we agree or disagree with Spike, his films MAKE us CONFRONT OUR BS.(ALL PEOPLE) Particularly BLK PPL. As a BLK MAN, I don't want to SEE another BLK MAN DE-MASCULATING (dressing like a female MOST of the time) & helping PERPETUATE STEREOTYPES. That also goes for BLK female's who help keep WHOREDOM alive...MOST of Perrys' material is BS. More than any other group, whether CONSCIOUSLY or SUBCONSCIOUSLY,
                                                we don't WANT to PUT IN THE WORK to TURN OUR situation AROUND. In general, it's EASIER(or so we think) to "PARTY & BULLS***" (including bs'n @ church) than to SACRIFICE through OUR PAIN(PSYCHOLOGICAL & EMOTIONAL), which INCLUDES US to STOP FU***** WIT CERTAIN PPL IN OUR LIVES. In some cases parent's & children.
                                                Plus there are TOO MANY PROVOCATEUR'S in OUR "SET" & WE NEED to LEARN HOW TO RECOGNIZE THEM & MAKE THEM DISAPPEAR.

                                                      I have to agreed with him! Spike Lee did came out and disrespected Tyler Perry. That is when Tyler told Spike to go to Hell.
                                                      I love Tyler for his hard work and he had honored Spike for his huge gala event.👊
                                                      We as black people needs to know how to speak toward one another especially in public!☝

I know Whitaker has the starpower and the chops so no complaint at all. I love the Epix show anyway. But Clifton Powell is SO underrated it's not even funny. And as a gangster, he's effortless. Look at the way he's sitting there in this interview like he got hitters already on the way to come see you. lol

Some of the actors that he deal with have contracts with Hollywood. He still need there permission to even put these people in his movies. He still needs the distribution to be able to put movies out. He still has to bow down to Hollywood. Everything that black people have so called own. They don't own. Don't believe in the hype. I'm not trying to take anything from Tyler but he has a percentage in something. He does not out right own anything. Even jay z and Oprah don't own anything out right. They have a percentage in thing that they are doing. That's what's wrong with us black people now. We don't read in between the lines.
