                    Hollywood does not profit from him so that's why they ignore him. He was smart to become his own entity. He has no one to answer to.

                          Hollywood likes to say that they’re open to everyone and everything, but they’re really not. They don’t like to tell certain stories and they’re notorious for typecasting actors of all backgrounds. Respect for Tyler Perry for not only fighting for a seat at the table, but making his own seat and table!

                                        I don't get it or should I rephrase that this man really shows clear why the liberals think black people are stupid. " The most successful Hollywood has ever ignored ". But all this achievement ... and you handed it over to nothing but a bunch of liberals who owned Hollywood. Damn!

He loves the metaphysics and magic in the life A.D.O.S. He was recently hit by a car and we thought we would lose him but he recovered fast and the doctors said because he is young. But my son is such a magical person i think its because he was protected guided and had ancestors helping him heal. Hope he can get that chance to share his stories he is 25 he's been writing and drawing since 2year.
