an old PSA, but excellent nonetheless

I love Aaron McGruder and the Boondocks.  His commentary, deconstruction and satirization of popular culture, while often very controversial, is beyond brilliant (just watch the MLK or R.Kelly episodes).

Now McGruder takes on the Tyler Perry empire.  I have a lot of issues with Perry and the sad irony that he has made his fortune by simultaneously dressing in drag while also portraying negative and offensive stereotypes of gays and lesbians in his films.  Additionally, he engages in the, sadly, timeless act of using sexism as a formula for humiliating male characters. Because, of course, the worst thing a man can be is feminine.  

American modern satire at its finest!
