    Honestly?...I question anything that he does on the basis that "if he wasn't wearing a dress and wig, would he have gotten the success that he has? I doubt it. In fact, I could equally question why almost all of the successful men in the media had to wear dresses and wigs and make up? They even asked David Chapelle to wear a dress but he said NO! We could easily say that it doesn't mean anything but these are the images that they keep in our young babies faces as if it is ok! They now have homosexual courses and books that they teach our children out of...so I don't know if I'm a good person to be asking this question.

    Men don't like him because of what I wrote. Will Smith, Flip Wilson, Ving Rymes, Wesley Snipes, Martin, Jamie Fox, the Wayans brothers, Cee-Low, Grand mama, Dennis Rodman and many more all dressed as women or played in homosexual roles. So don't get it wrong...the black mans reasons is not how you may see it.

    LOL....Bro keita,...just how else are they gonna get our money to see them perform in heels and a dress? How else are they gonna relate to us women?.. Now Jamie Foxx, and Wesley Snipes, and Ving Rymes..they were ugly women..but they are great actors who won our hearts..

    You speak as an adult...now lets see what reactions those images have on our babies who don't understand that they are just acting...just trynna make a living. See if our 4, 5, 6, 7 year olds see it as you do. This is my point; long before our babies understand language, they understand images...therefore images become more important than words. How many of us have heard the old saying; Don't do as I do, do as I say? How was my mother and father gonna tell me not to smoke when they were throwing them back like crazy??? I couldn't wait to smoke!!! So if the brothers that our babies are seeing and possibly looking up to are wearing dresses and make up, how do you explain to them that it's wrong and that that's not the way that it's supposed to be? I got Comcast as a cable company and I always have to take the remote and skip over the dam RuPaul Drag Queen channel...but I bet you that there isn't a channel to wake up black men or black people!??!?

    he does more damage that good in the guise of black entertainment....
    on top of that...his characters are so over the top...
    i had to watch that good deeds movie not too long ago....
    i've never met a black man that acted like his brother did in that move....just as an example

    one love

    I think I got you wrong here. Are you suggesting that men can only relate to women if they're wearing skirt and heels?????? Or woman can only relate to men in skirt heels?
