Awww C’Mon Really!!…Empire’s Lee Daniels Makes Some Disparaging Comments About Black Women


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?

      Glad to know how he/she feels about us Black women. I think that he/she needs to stick with directing. He/she is out of his/her league talking about welfare. There are MORE White women on welfare that Black women. They wouldn’t have to be on welfare if the brothers would step up and do what they are suppose to do. Whateva idiot!

        Or maybe if so many black people didn’t take the handouts the the Democrats forced into our communities in the 70s and the 80s then men could have been a part of the household to prevent the single mom/welfare cycle from starting or continuing but sure put the blame every where except on the Liberal left that has handicapped the black community for 40 years now

          compared to the welfare “handouts” (coded as tax breaks and investment incentives) given to corporations and the wealthy, support for the poor has been minimal at best, and is, in fact, decreasing. you’re comment shows a remarkable ignorance of what’s happened and happening with the U.S. economy. There is a wealth gap. In addition, it might be useful to take note of how far to the right the left has moved since the 70’s and 80’s. But why bother with honest analysis?

    3rd class citizens? How do you know at 5 your gay?? Your social conscious isn’t even fully developed. He obviously had some disfunction in his life that led him to believe he was gay like so many gay people who choose to be gay because of some traumatic or dysfunctional circumstances in there life. Homosexuality is a behavior. It aint no ethnic group nor have they been treated unequally. Gays aren’t being segregated and lynched over a tree.

      You don’t know you are gay at 5, but know that something is different…internally. You know that something that your siblings have and want is different from you. It is impossible for someone to place themselves in someone else’s shoes and experience the fear and frustration that is associated with being gay. No one in their right mind would CHOOSE to be ridiculed for the rest of their lives. And of course gays aren’t being lynched…not literally. But the mental anguish that causes them to lynch themselves, put a bullet through their brains, slit their wrists, etc…is the same thing. No one would expect a straight person to fully understand the homosexual mind. Don’t try to…you will get nowhere. It doesn’t even matter to you or anyone else what someone else does in their lives. If you fail to see that inequality exists in the world in terms of homosexuality, then you’re as blind as the day is long.

Its so exhausting to hear. “you didnt know you were gay at 5 you must have been molested or your just twisted and psycho” umm…. no. Your the only one making it that deep. I’m JUST gay.

So tell me how they are discriminated against. Prove to me that homos are mistreated & denied employment, equal & fair housing, equal education? These people are heavily protected & can only bytch about people who disagree with a LIFE CHOICE. They are weaker than a 3 year old child who wants their way with everything including punishing those who disagree & don’t like nor practice their unbalanced lifestyle. They are cowards & hate when others don’t want their energy around them. They truly seek to force others to accept & love their gotdamn life CHOICES! Not me gotdamnit! If I don’t like ANYTHING I’ll be damn ed before I let some weak ass coward force me to. I don’t GAF about gay people & who they choose to screw just keep that shyt to yourselves and let others be disgusted if they damn well want to be.

        Nature doesn’t make mistakes. Humans do. Your phenotype or physical structure is determined by genetics. If you have andX and Y chromosome pair with an SRY sex determining factor you are MALE. Period. No if or buts. The only thing that determines your sexual desires or orientation are HORMONES. They can be affected by anything. Food you eat. Water you drink. Trauma affecting your neurological function. Drugs. Alcohol. Disease. Environment. Too many androgens you are more masculine. Too many estrogens. More feminine. your basic constitution will remain the same. If you are male, produce or inject too much estrogen, you will die sooner than later most likely of thrombosis or some disease you can no longer fight off.. Female too many androgens your immunity crashes. The older you get the less hormones you make. Screw it up you don’t get a do over. Politics. Culture. Hollywood. Has nothing to do with it except to shape your perceptions. Lee Daniels is a confused bitter and vindictive male with a narcissistic grandiose complex currently serving the political agenda of some Hollywood elites who have long wanted to destroy the black male and female, and black family structure, and to derail any black consciousness movement. The entertainment industry is run by mostly gay white males who own 96% or more of all media entities, who come from a background mired in racism, elitism and grandiosity. All threats must be neutralized in the eyes of this power hierarchy. Lee has an awakening coming. he will never rise beyond a certain point. He has cursed himself. Karma is on his doorstep. He exists only because a black woman’s womb was strong enough to bring him into the world, despite the hardships. Every human on the planet today owe their existence to the strength of the mitochondria of a black woman. Had her genes not be strong enough to survive the last mass extinction, no human would be alive today. This is too complex an issue to get into here. Suffice it to say, a shakeup on this planet is coming between now and 2016. This was a warning. Feel how you choose to about it. Peace. Dr. Khelama

          February 16, 2015 at 7:34 PM

          Very philosophical kiddo, subjective and poetic but nothing close to science, and a good deviation from the facts given. Black people, native Americans, for example, have been ridiculed since the ships landed, what does that have to do with the price of tea in China? Realistically, I know people who make fools of themselves everyday and get ridiculed. Sometimes rightly so. I imagine myself the Empress of this land they stole from my ancestors since women once ruled it. Noble but a bit unrealistic at the moment. Let’s get back to the real deal shall we, philosophy and politics of culture aside? First, the idea is to derail the notion that gays are some neo-ethnic group being persecuted because they are oddities. They are not. If a human is born with an XY chromosome with an SRY male determining factor, HE is a male. The only thing that governs his sexual drive are hormones. Generally androgens, unless he’s exposed to synthetic estrogens which can alter his sex drive but doesn’t make him any less a male. If a human is born with an XX chromosome pair and no other factor, it is a female. Hormones released at varying stages of development govern sexual drives. “Sex changes” don’t change the basic constitution. Nature always wins in the end. That’s another discussion. It is true anyone can be persuaded to behave a certain way, but we all choose under whatever coercion or provocation or manipulation how we behave. I was perceived as illiterate by racist teachers. I chose to ignore them and to become a scientist. It was how I PERCEIVED MYSELF not how they saw me. Without repeating what I’ve already written, sex drives are a hormonally influenced process. Our hormones influence our sexual passions but WE determine how or whether or not to indulge them. Lots of women have fantasies of marrying Denzel but don’t attempt to kidnap him to make it happen. Some say they can’t choose who they love. That’s a joke. I can think of quite a few jerks I’ve loved in my time that I can’t stand right now. Lol. I chose to love them. Then chose not to. While lifestyles are always a choice, some of them come with a higher risk than others. For some the risk is beyond personal boundaries and involve the safety of others. Emotional qualities are adapted, learned, reactive to outside stimuli. Traits are generally genetic imprints. Careful with the “blank slate” thing. The Olympians who rule the world are experts in mind control. Believing one is a blank slate “to be written on” is one of the key stages in mind control programming. It is what a skilled handler does. Convince the subject that he or she has no personality imprints or erases them so that they become a blackboard easily written on. Babies are born with personality imprints and instincts governed purely by genes already mapped. Environmental cues and other influences can cause certain mental detours but generally left alone, we find our way. This has been enlightening to see where the black mindset is on certain matters. Back to the laboratory. Blessings all. Eve

      “Gays arent being segregated and lynched over a tree” I beg to differ, in countries like russia, uganda and other 3rd world countries, LGBT people are commonly tortured and beaten to death and treated like animals rather than people. While not as bad as those countries, a lot of LGBT people in the first world are still turned away from jobs, cant get housing are often beaten etc simply for being gay. Transgender women are probably the most discriminated against minority in the world with a huge murder rate, the highest suicide rate and an extremely high homeless/unemployment rate.

            There IS no political left or conservative right. There is no political compass. It is all illusion. Designed and controlled. The term “liberal” means generous and abundant among other things, and is mentioned in the bible several times as a godly attribute. Conservative is not mentioned once. Neither has any real meaning except as a description of how we all behave at any given point, because politics is man created. We are sometimes generous and sometimes selfish. It is all in our perceptions of reality and the world around us and how we relate to others. It is being manipulated by the Olympians in power. They know exactly what they are doing. And if most people knew who and what they were they would be very afraid. Worse than being a fool is not knowing you are one. There are no “gays” as some sort of new ethnic group. There are men and women with dysfunctional hormones evolving out some mutating agency either exogenous or endogenous, as mentioned in my comment above. It is a medical fact easily proven by proper testing. This dysfunction has been politicized and turned into a movement. It is unsustainable and will die. There are no white people. There is only ONE ORIGINAL HUMAN PROTOTYPE, the black human. Black because the universe is black as dark energy producing dark matter producing biological matter defined by melanin unless it isn’t. White is the absence of melanin. And it is what makes “white” people who are actually black people with a mutation, appear light. In the days ahead as the sun wakes up, this will be a serious problem for “fair skinned” people. If I explained to men the debt they owe women and what they are also facing, it would probably be more than many can bear including Lee Daniels. That is for another time and place. Just a messenger passing through here. Peace and out. Eve.

        you named places that barely have running water let alone the internet. In other words, places that whatever happens here in the states would have no affect on their mindsets. Pointless point. But I have to wonder, maybe folks are pissed because the LGBT community is trying to jump the line. Here in this country Blacks WERE lynched and hanged. Here, women were raped and shunned without penalty. Women have yet to feel rectified. Blacks are still feeling to pain. Hell, the poor are still seeking a voice. And all those issues were basically on the books when THIS country was born and have yet to be solved. The LGBT plight received sympathy from the Fed faster than any other group. They went from totally taboo, to fad, to supreme court in 20 years. And many still act like nothing has happened. That’s a slap in the face to every other group still fighting for equality. I remember having a conversation with a Hispanic man once And he asked, ” Why can’t black and brown unite?” My answer was, because y’all sat and watched blacks fight and die for civil rights, then came in droves once the coast was clear. See my point? No body likes users, opportunists, or line jumpers. But, if we stopped putting our own wants before others needs then we could make this country even greater.

        You just equated someone having “gay tendencies” with someone going around abusing people, as if being gay means you have to abuse people. What you are saying makes no sense because you are basically arguing that someone “even if someone has a tendency” they should force themselves to act like they’re straight and get into a heterosexual relationship even if they’re not into it.

    There is a such thing called rebellion. And one may not understand or act on it at five years old. But that is plainly away in trying to justify and claiming that a person was gay at a very young age. And yes, i believe it’s a choice. I chose to get high at a young age. knowing I would be ridiculed and called names and looked down on. And the mental anguish of my addiction kept me down for many years while i continue to use drugs. I enjoyed it and at the same time I wanted to stop. Just as an addiction to pornography.

Also you have to look at the fact it is not looking at the population as a WHOLE, but as a collective of where you are located. So YES, there are areas in which there ARE in fact MORE blacks on welfare than there are whites. That is where black people need to start getting things through their head instead of being stuck in a box. Oh and so you know, I am in no form anybody’s Idiot. You have a nice night.

I like empire, and its great to see a cast of people of color doing great on broadcast television, but he should think about the things he says because we are in a culture now where people don’t want to do research and they believe whatever they see on TV. He is in a position of power now and needs to be more responsible with his words.

    I really hope he ear not attempting to justify men on the down low infecting women black or otherwise and the fact that he was shocked when he went to the center shows how disconnected he really is from the reality because when I go to work with those environments I see more than just black women who appear to be on welfare, I see people of all races and genders and classes seeking help under the continued stigma of AIDS and HIV. Instead of trying to manufacturer an agenda to rid the Black community of homophobia, I believe he should first understand the culture of poverty and sexual trasmitted diseases. I think it is unacceptable and repugnant to use something such as AIDS and HIV to push an agenda in any form or fashion. Moreover, if he truly wants to work with the African American community regarding any issue I suggest he first seek to understand it from a place other than pain which is displayed in this interview to color his perspective. I am an African American Christian who has experienced gays and transgenders in my growing up experience without pain unlike hid experience. Oddly enough, although we have different beliefs, when we have dinner I have never heard anyone say pass the potatoes you faggot or pass the roles you narrow minded Christian. Meaning tolerance works much better if you don’t manufacture a situation to or force your agenda or beliefs on people. That usually comes from a place of love. The question is do you want to be right scvording to your agenda or do you really want to address the wrongs that we do to one another. Bare in mind I don’t have to hate or belittle anyone to try and understand and be at peace with them. This segment doesn’t demonstrate any of that in my opinion.

    You would expect someone like him to say like that about a woman. Being that he is trying to emulate being a woman is why he knows how some women act. Since he is attending #Women 101, he should know that all women, black women especially, do not all act rowdy, loud and unclassy. Man up, Lee, if you can remember how to do that.

    I will be right there supporting Empire as long as it is on the air. I could say that I will not support Mr. Lee but, what about the other African American actors and actresses we haven’t seen appear on tv in awhile. You are taking their opportunity based upon this man’s ignorance. This is a new era, so yes it will be some fighting and other drama to keep you coming back for more, but it ain’t much different than the soaps your grandma was watching when she warned you not to disturb her while they were on. During that era, I’m sure it was drama, adultery, killing, ect. Come on people!

    I was with him until he (implied) that DL men are the main cause of HIV among black women. There are black lesbians with HIV who never slept with a man. There are women who contracted HIV from sharing needles. There are straight men who contracted HIV from prostitutes and past it on to their girlfriends, or wives. So there goes his DL black man theory. The 1980’s lie that HIV is a (gay) disease is why stupid ass black people are being infected so easily. HIV is not a (Gay) disease that runs into a straight person and says, hey, “Im not going to infect you because you’re straight.” Ignorance, desperation, drugs and alcohol is who and why most black women get infected.

    It’s sad that this man has turned his gender struggle into a minority class divide in order to justify his own success or failure. His tendancy to blame African-ancestored Americans for Gay men masquerading as Heterosexuals and failure of Gay Men to responsibly disclose their sexual orientation to women prior to infecting them with Aids is repugnant, cowardly and immoral. As if that wasn’t enough, his research foray took him to a treatment center that should have been filled with Gay Men but was instead filled with infected Black Women and Children. Instead of dredging up empathy or sympathy for their plight, he chose to Blame African Americanss instead of Down-Low bi-sexuals. He slammed African ancestored Americans, yet again, by saying he thought he was in a Welfare Office. His extreme arrogance and lack of regard for African-ancestored Americans makes him an Enemy, rather than a friend or ally to “our community”. It just so happens that he also brought “Empire” to tv. I will not be watching.

    He makes movie’s and tv shows that’s all his opinion means nothing. U can tell by his shows he has no morale standard. Furthermore he is gay for Christ sakes!! He’s confused about a lot of things.
    And why is it when a black person in Hollywood says something it’s suppose to effect all black ppl?? News flash we don’t all know each other nor do we care to. And if we want a serious opinion that matter 9 out of 10 if you’re not black you won’t know them.
    P.S. it won’t be a person of questionable ethics and moral standard.

    Make me understand why when this crisis started it was mainly white people now this consider mainly black. When our uppity black people speak about their race it’s always negative why not figure Way to turn a bad situation into good. I have never see a white person ever downgrade their race as much as I see black people do. What makes any culture more special then a black race? Aids was given to destroy the African-American race. It is a Shame for a person to get on tv and state they were gay at the age of 5. Smh you don’t even know what life is all about and you was still wetting your pants at the age of 5. Child do understand the difference between a woman or man at that age. That’s why the old school would set you down so much that you would understand the birds and the bee. I am not buying that bullshit because everybody has to have a story tell to make you believe there choices in life. I think all children has Dress yourself in their mothers and fathers clothes. But That don’t make you gay you just think it’s ok until someone tell you better. Everyone have their reasons for turning gay and I don’t think because you were dressing into your parents clothing. http://Www.realtalkwitherika.com

    You know, fat people have it worse. Many didn’t chose to be fat. Many became that way from being brought up with a cheap diet of fat causing carbs. Fat people are never in a heroic role in Hollywood unless them being fat is and a hero is the running joke. They have to pay more to travel, clothes, and healthcare. But you don’t see them marching. I bet right now you’ve formed a joke in your head. I stand for human rights. If we focused on that, then all the other groups wouldn’t have specific racial, gender, or social, platforms to complain from. But of course, where’s the fun in that?

    As for the welfare thing, I’ve researched hard as to where the stereotype comes from. And I think k I have figured it out. Young black people enter adulthood earlier than many other racial groups. And when they do they do it in the wrong order. Instead of starting out with an education, good job, then start a family. Many start a family when they’re still emotionally, financially, and ultimatly foundationally deficient or immature. So when it all breaks down instead of divorce court, you’re in social services. Hence the perception. The poor and un ready have to handle private business matters on a public forum.

    He sounds like an idiot especially since majority of welfare recipients are white.. that whole all black women are on welfare is nothing more than a stereotype.. and I never got how anyone could compare homosexual rights to civil rights it’s totally different and black people still don’t have adequate civil rights..he sounds silly

      We should not leave the fate of our lives, in the hands of any individual/individuals when it comes to who or what we accept in them. The deomonic spirits that continue to control Mr. Lee Daniels life, are what’s doing the speaking through him. He wasn’t born a homosexual no one is, however in the space of his early childhood a homosexual spirit became part of him. What he said concerning the clinic he visitied, has nothing to do with black homosexual males being affraid to come out, every woman in the clinic he visited all have different stories! It’s recklessness, and inconsideration on any man behalf, who has sexual intercourse with both men/women without regard for the individual life they could possibly infect with their sickness! It’s foolishness on any woman behalf, who don’t do what’s necessary to truly know the individual/individuals they choose to give themselves to.

        You sound crazy as hell this aint Harry Potter its real life and THIS is the reasons why our stories need to be told. Gay people are human and normal not forest elfs with magic wands.

        There was a moment in time whete white people thought black folks had tails. Do you have a tail? Didnt think so

      He never said all black women are on welfare he said when he walked into the office he mistook it for an welare office due to all the women and children whom just so happen to be black. Rewatch the video.

      He wasnt saying anything about anyo e being on welfare he stated that when he walked into the office he mistaked it for the walfare office due to all the women and children and yes he mentioned that they were black to get his point across about the down low men most of us black women are sleeping with.

    I knew he was gay before I even read the article or heard him speak. He was referring to the fact that Black women must present themselves in person at the Welfare office whereas White people can opt to have a social worker visit them in their homes. That is why you rarely see White people in the Welfare offices. I used to work for the Dept. of Social Services and it would break my heart to see the numbers of Black people sitting on our doorsteps everyday waiting for the office to open and yet the women (or men) who were “ASSIGNED HOME VISITATIONS” were for the most part young White women and they would not let the Black workers take those assignments.

    The article is completely misleading and poorly written. He’s not talking about ALL welfare recipients, just the agency office in NYC he went to in order to research PRECIOUS. In another interview he says it was all black women & children with HIV in the gay men’s health center he went to. He expressed shock that so many black women were there. Don’t you all know it’s a fact that black men who are down low are the main reason black women have been infected? That and promiscuity.
    Also, you wrote this interview was not that long ago? It was August 2013! And the show is called, Larry King Now, not his old CNN show called Larry King Live.

    I just wanted to say that I am 37 years old I was diagnosed MS when I was 36. I have worked for over 15 years , I’ve been denied for my social security numerous times. I’ve used all of my 401k on bills,medical expenses, food etc. I never was on foodstamps until my illness, and not being able to get my disability, leaves a person no choice after they have used all of their resources. One should never pass judgment on one because you never know your future.

    I think what he said was blown out of proportion. Him saying that he thought was in the welfare office shouldn’t have been offensive at seeing how when ever you walk into one there are more black women than any other race especially in a certain parts of new york. We all have these thoughts , so whats wrong with what he said?

    Hmm…what if he meant that he LITERALLY thought he was in the welfare office (since he saw women AND children) and he was at an AIDS clinic (and many government programs are in the SAME building)?

    Now, I know that may not be the case, but maybe your conclusion isn’t correct either. And there are MANY homophobic mindsets in these comments, which I do not think that his gayness is “proof” that he hates women, specifically Black women. (But I won’t even try to contend that “logic”.)

    I am well aware of the incorrect and hurtful perception that their are more Black women on welfare, and I hate this stereotype as much as anyone. But when there’s a chance that someone’s intentions are possibly misconstrued, I choose not to jump on the bandwagon.

    In other words, this isn’t explicit “proof” that Lee Daniels hates Black women.

    Lee Daniels is nothing but a white-picked coon. None of his opinions are relevant or logical. Their are FAR more white people on welfare than black people, his show only shows black women acting how white ppl envision us which is ghett
