Interesting that he chose Atlanta instead of Hollywood/la. He’s going to do his own thing and maybe try to build a new industry town.

there's like no room in los angeles for something like this - plus atlanta has always had amazing tax breaks for tv and film projects done there

There are soooo many empty buildings in the city, just rotting away. Tear those fuckers down if they're not gonna use them for homeless shelters.

This is amazing. And congrats to Tyler.

HOWEVER it confirms my theory that marginalised groups will always have to build shit for themselves, rather than be welcomed into old structures and systems that are open to or willing to change. Fuck Hollywood.

No idea what an HBCU.

And yes, it's a theory. It's MY theory, as stated.

Historically black colleges and universities!

And don't be peeved, I think they were just trying to say that there's enough sufficient evidence to prove what you've thought for a while. As in, it's not really a theory anymore because it's just fact which sucks :/

I appreciate the giant "fuck you" to the past of him using an old confederate base. Rock on, Tyler Perry.
