Talking About Jesus

Thursday, May 13th, 2010

In my last post, I wrote a review of Tyler Perry’s Madea’s Big Happy Family. A major aspect of all of Tyler Perry’s work is his Christian faith. He is very open about it. It seems to me that Christianity is more acceptable in African-American culture than in white culture. Maybe I’m wrong, but I never hear Christianity ridiculed in African-American art and media the way it seems to be in primarily white media outlets.

So my question to you: Why is that? Why is Christianity more acceptable in African-American culture? And, what, if anything, should we do about it?
