Maybe it wasn’t his fault…

Could Madea possibly be an alter?
I’ve never been a fan of Tyler Perry’s plays or movies. It took me about 3 years before I ever watched a Madea movie, and I only watched ‘Why Did I Get Married (& Too)’ because I simply love Janet Jackson. Other than that, the only way I’ve caught glimpse of his movies have been because someone else turned it on.
I understand that all races and movie genres have movies about females having hard times, and sometimes it’s relaxing to watch when you have a day off in the middle of January, curled up on the couch with a warm blanket around you, a cat at your feet, a Cup’O’Noodles in your hand, and a heating pad on your stomach because the cramps are so vicious!! Can’t nobody tell me they have never had one of those days. 🙂
Anyway, my point about Mr. Perry’s movies is instead of bringing Black Women into a positive light, it’s SSDD (Same Sh*t Different Day). The heroines in his movies are always an á la carte of the following: broke, single, verbally/physically/sexually abused, bitter, have multiple children (by multiple men), homeless, jobless, carless, hopeless, helpless, and any other ‘less’ you can think of. I don’t see how this is helping us (Black Women) find a better way. Yes, we all know we need to lean on Jesus, but why do we all have to get to the worst possible point in life before we call on Him? Understandably, this is what happens to most people before the come running back to their Christian roots, but to constantly see this as the portrayment of Black Women on a regular is not the business.
I could totally be the only person that thinks this, but let’s see what Spike Lee has to say about it. As he is the king of Black Message Movies.
Wow! That’s an interesting point of view. And here I was thinking I was being original.
Well, I wonder what mister smarty pants had to say about this one. Hmmm…
Hold up, did this man just say his characters are bait?! Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know what he said about using them to spread a message and all that jazz, but it’s the way he said it that’s got me unnerved. ‘Disarming, charming, make you laugh bait’? And, no, Mr. Perry, your movies did not notify the American people that there are sill JiggaBoos in our midst. They do a good enough job of that themselves.
Anyway, now that my public service announcement is over, back to Tyler.
Ok, so here we have a black male, born Sept. 13th, 1969, into a poor family in New Orleans, La. I’m not going to get into all of the gritty details, but I will give you the broad strokes from his latest interview with the Illupetts grand dame herself, Oprah. Since she is so stingy, I’m not able to provide any clips, but she has graciously provided them on her own website. Just click the highlighted key phrases to be catapulted to the land of ‘O’ to view his interview.
In this interview Tyler touched on some very personal and deep issues with his life. He discussed his horrible childhood during which he was sexually molested several times by different men and the mother of a friend. He also later found out his father had been sexually molesting one of his friends. (Sounds like a sick trade off to me.) He goes on to speak about how his father wasn’t violently beating him, he was playing mind games with him.  Tyler states his father would sit outside of his bedroom and stare at him for hours. Watching him play, read, or anything else a child would do.
That’ right there, made me think of something I read about Psychological Manipulation. See, one of the many different tricks used in mind control is Staring drills.
Staring Drills are used to intimidate, provoke, make a person aggressive, and to destabilize victims. It’s linked to manipulation, credibility, and justification. One technique is to simply stare at the victim and another is to whisper “you’re scared” and engage in staring contests.
Seems like Mr. Perry, Sr. knew a little bit more than we gave him credit for, huh? Let’s continue.
Tyler goes on to talk about a day when his father told him to change a tire, however he was unable to change the tire. He talks about how his father was also unable to change the tire, due to the bolts being rusted. Tyler speaks of an imaginable beating which caused him to go back to that ‘special place’ in his mind. Meaning he was attempting to disassociate his mind from the situation. Tyler mentions this is the time he feels his innocence died. He recalls during this senseless beating, once the ‘park’ was starting to form in his mind, he started to see himself running away from him. The little boy (Perry’s childhood/innocence) ran running away, and he was unable to get him to come back. He says he didn’t understand why or what happened, but he feels like he died that day.
This recollection caused me to remember something I read online the other day about Depersonalization Disorder, a sister of DID. With this disorder is is characterized by a persistent or recurrent feeling of being detached from one’s own mental processes or body. Individuals suffering from Depersonalization Disorder relate feeling as if they are watching their lives from outside of their bodies, similar to watching a movie (American Psychiatric Association, 2000; Frey, 2001; Guralnik, Schmeidler, & Simeon, 2000; Maldonado et al., 2002; Simeon et al., 2001; Spiegel & Cardeña, 1991). Individuals with Depersonalization Disorder often report problems with concentration, memory and perception (Guralnik et al., 2001). The depersonalization must occur independently of DID, substance abuse disorders and Schizophrenia (Steinberg et al., 1993).

Joe & Madea ~ Characters or Alters?

eck out Wikipedia for more in depth information about this extremely serious disorder.

I firmly believe this instance was not only the death of Tyler’s childhood, but the beginning of his mind being split into alters.

Let’s look at some very interesting information I came across while researching this subject. Below you’ll find a very thorough chronological list of events that effected Tyler Perry’s life in many ways.

On September 13, 1969, Perry was born in New Orleans, Louisiana as Emmitt Perry, Jr., named after his father, a construction worker. His mother was Willie Maxine Perry born February 12, 1945.

In about 1979 at ten years old, Perry was sexually abused by a male church member(s) that he won’t talk about. His mother took him to church each week where she continued to be unable to protect him.In 1985, at age 16, he had his first name legally changed from Emmitt to Tyler in an effort to distance himself from his father. Tyler is an unusual choice. Tyler is from an English surname meaning “tiler of roofs”. He recalled attempting to commit suicide (self mutilation-waists) after being beaten by his father. He admitted that he had tried to commit suicide several times.

School allowed Perry to create a make-believe world in which he was a comedic figure. He engaged in endless antics in class to escape the crushing weight of abuse. Perry found relief through drawing which brought his fantasies to life, releasing his pent up frustrations. Perry subsequently dropped out of high school.

Between 1985 and 1992, Perry was a carpenter apprentice. Emmitt Sr. was a carpenter. During this time, Perry went through some type of transformation. Perry recounts the transformation this way, “I was watching Oprah Winfrey one day when she said that writing down one’s experiences could be cathartic. After I found a dictionary and looked up cathartic, I realized what she was saying, so I started writing things down. ‘God’s little flashes of light,’ he called them.

Unsure of how to approach the craft of writing, Perry converted people in his make-believe world into characters with pseudonyms. The character transformations of Perry’s cathartic musings were adapted to the musical stage production of I Know I’ve Been Changed.

I Know I’ve Been Changed was based upon the voices of molested children subjected to what had to have been ritual sexual abuse; and the forgiveness (induced amnesia) of the sexual predators.

In 1998, after a telephone conversation with his parents, Emmitt and Maxine, Perry reportedly bared his soul to the people who had hurt him the most. He recalled: “I told them everything that I had wanted to say as a little boy. I talked about all of the things that they had done to me and told them that I knew that I was not responsible for it.”

If you are wondering why I have placed several key words and phrases in bold font, it is because this is more evidence it was not a coincidence Tyler is now hanging out in Italy with the Illuppet Queen and her Queen.

Three Queens hanging in Italy. And Oprah, you have all that money and you can't purchase a decent bra?!?!

Or you can find him chilling with pretty much anyone linked to Freemason, Kabbalah, and any one that could even remotely be connect to the Illuminati

And what about the content of his movies and how these ‘characters’ actually represent different Alters Tyler had to create within himself as protectors, and the movie is the life story he had provided for them:

I Know I’ve Been Changed was based upon the voices of molested children subjected to what had to have been ritual sexual abuse; and the forgiveness (induced amnesia) of the sexual predators.

With T.D. Jakes, Perry collaborated in Woman Thou Art Loosed to cash in and profit from a new “genre” of entertainment productions centered on the self destructive behaviorism of Black folk based on a book by Jakes; again on the same theme, it was centered on the rape of a little girl.  Jakes’ new entertainment genre was bankrolled by Oprah, Danny Glover, Cedric the Entertainer and other high profile blacks.

Helen McCarter  and her husband Charles, an Atlanta district attorney, had it all: money, success, and a fine home. In public they seemed to think their lives were perfect, but it was all far from perfect behind closed doors. After suffering from mental, physical, and verbal abuse, and receiving some off-color advice from her sassy and loud grandmother named Madea (Tyler Perry), who takes her in and helps her get back on her feet.

After Madea (Tyler Perry) violates the terms of her house arrest  (which she was subjected to in the previous film), the judge orders her to take in a troubled foster child named Nikki (KeKe Palmer) in order to avoid jail. Lisa (Rochelle Ayette), one of Madea’s nieces, is engaged to an abusie and controlling investment banker named Carlos (Blair Underwood). While she desperately wants to get out of the engagement, her mother, Victoria (Lynn Whitfield), urges her to go through with the wedding, telling Lisa to avoid doing things that make Carlos angry.

When Brenda (Angela Bassett), a struggling single mom in Chicago’s inner city, learns that the father she never knew has died, she heads to Georgia with her three kids in tow for the funeral and meets her dad’s raucous family. Despite their boisterous manner, Brenda finds them a comforting presence in her fragmented life. Writer-director Tyler Perry also co-stars in this adaptation of his hit stage play.

Viciously abused by her mother (a riveting, Oscar-winning Mo’Nique) and pregnant by her father, Harlem teen Precious Jones (Oscar nominee Gabourey Sidibe) has an unexpected chance at a different life when she enrolls in an alternative school. Teacher Blu Rain (Paula Patton) encourages her, but Precious must battle unimaginable barriers everywhere in her life. Lee Daniels directs this drama that features appearances by Mariah Carey and Lenny Kravitz.

Based on Ntozake Shange’s award-winning 1975 play, which consists of a series of poems performed through a cast of nameless women, known only by a color. It deals with such subjects as love, abandonment, rape, and abortion.

It seems to me we’ve been reading Tyler Perry all wrong. As I stated before, I firmly believe the day he feels he lost his innocence, is also the day his Alters started to take shape and form their own life stories. I also believe these characters are BAIT just as Mr. Perry stated, but instead of leading us to happy thoughts of alls-well-that-ends-well, we are being led in the vicious cycle of coonery buffoonery.
