Tyler Perry...I talk so much trash about this dude, but I really do think the world of him. I love his story from literally starting from the bottom (i.e. suffering from abuse, homelessness, brokedness, etc.) and rising to the top. Although some of his films and ALL of his television shows could use some work, he is a black man that has gained RESPECT in all white Hollywood. For that alone, he deserves a salute!
