Gaymos and Dandy return

Actually, that’s not fair. Amos and Andy were offensive caricatures, no doubt, but were not vain, shallow, materialistic, melodramatic, backstabbing gossips like the offensive caricatures on MTVGay’s “The A List.”

Yet the Petty Queer Establishment is silent. They must be busy searching for offensive language in the DVD release of a Ron Howard movie no one saw.

A movement hasn’t matured until it feels comfortable calling out its own. Ours remains sadly juvenile, just like the miserable bitches on Gaymos and Dandy. By the way, they’ve added a new cast member: a former pageant winner who describes herself as a “fierce diva.”

I guess she’s playing the mascot role filled by gays on the Real Housewives shows. I suppose we’re equal now.

The father, the son and Tyler Perry

Caricature has been very good to Tyler Perry, who says the only critics that matter are “the million and four people that have left messages on my message board saying how much they enjoy it, or the almost five million people on Facebook who are always talking about what this moment did for them, or how this lesson taught them.”

He then proceeds to blast his detractors, namely Spike Lee, insinuating that blacks shouldn’t criticize one another (no word on what he thinks of gay critics of his work).

“Booker T. Washington and W.E.B. DuBois went through the exact same thing,” Perry said.

To be fair, the “The W.E.B. DuBois Show” had script problems from the start.
