Tyler Perry wants high-earning Black women to keep themselves open to receiving a good man…even if he does not make as much money.
“A lot of women, especially Black women, and I might get in trouble for saying this but I will,” he said on Keep It Positive, Sweetie. “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… because his gift might not be your gift, that is okay. That’s not somebody that’s beneath you. That’s somebody who came to love you at your worth.”
Perry added, “As long as he’s secure in himself to know that ‘yeah, she makes most of the money, all I can pay is the light bill.’ As long as she’s comfortable enough to say ‘I’m gonna cover the mortgage and all the other stuff.’ That is fine.” Perry later explained that when it comes down to someone’s ability to love and support their partner, money doesn’t make a difference. I know people whose men can’t touch what they make,” Perry added. “But when you see them together? That love, that support, that ‘I got you, babe,’ it’s a beautiful thing.”
Y’all agree or is the movie director trippin’? Let us know in the comments.
