With Lee Daniels experiencing the success of his new show “Empire,” there are some who wonder how he feels about black people, especially black women. Nomalanga Mhlauli-Moses recently wrote an article analyzing the characters on the show, saying that there is a disturbing trend of presenting black women as tacky, loud and aggressive.
This video from Larry King Live might clear a few things up. It was an interview not too long ago, during which Lee Daniels talks about doing AIDS research. He said that he saw so many black women that he thought it was a welfare office. What are your thoughts?
