Tyler Perry Encourages Black Women To Find Love With Less Paid Men; Twitter Weigh In [Video]

Tyler Perry has raised some eyebrows over his comments regarding Black women and their role in relationships. 

The Madea creator recently sat down for a chat with the “Keep It Positive, Sweetie” podcast alongside host Crystal Renee Hayslett. During the interview, the talk of splitting bills in a relationship came up, and the film producer had an interesting take on Black women dating men who make less than them.

“In our society right now, Black women are making a lot more money, for the most part, than Black men. If you can find love, if that man works at whatever job and is a good man, and is good to you, and honors you, and honors the house, and honors his wife, and does what he can, that is okay.”

His advice did not sit well with social media, particularly the women of Black Twitter, who questioned why they are expected to settle in the dating world while other races of women are not held to the same standards. 

Later in the convo, Perry added that if a man makes less than his woman but can cover at least the light bill, “that is fine.” His views arise at a time when finances in relationships seem to be a hot topic among content creators. Perry has not yet attempted to clarify his comments on the matter, but does he have a point? Or is this type of rhetoric detrimental to Black women?
