Miguel has been blowing up the music charts with his smooth voice and has even been compared to the great purple one, Prince. His popularity took a dive when he dove off a stage and injured a few fans at his Billboard Awards performance and it seems as though his likeliness is decreasing yet again. Recently Miguel made some comments that got him the straight side eye. Miguel publicly accused black people of being very judgemental saying, “I’m proud of my heritage,” “But honestly Black people are the most judgmental people in the world.” If your wondering Miguel’s nationality he is Mexican American & African American. Well of course his comments ruffled some feathers with critics wondering if Miguel is dealing with self hate, also the conversation started to gear towards religion. I have to ask, do you feel that black people are judgemental?

The HIV community are angered at Tyler Perry for the way he depicts people living with HIV in his latest film Temptation. In the movie the leading lady contracts HIV after having an affair on her husband. The Women is seen at the end of the movie looking much older than the other cast and limping away alone. The Positive Women’s Network of the United States of America are enraged and wants Perry to stop stigmatizing people with HIV. In a letter that they wrote to Mr. Perry they commend him on his other projects saying how his message is usually a positive and uplifting one to the people. However the tone in the letter switches rather quickly and they write on how disappointed they are with the film Temptations. Check out letter below:
Dear Mr. Perry,
We write as people living with HIV and their allies to express our deep disappointment with your latest film, Temptation. This disappointment is made all the greater because you have done much that can be applauded. Audiences see your plays and films not simply as entertainment, but as opportunities for inspiration, spiritual healing, and unity.
As you may be aware, one of the greatest barriers to addressing the HIV epidemic is the high level of stigma and misinformation attached to this simple virus. Stigma prevents people from getting tested for HIV, from protecting themselves during sex, from accessing care when they test positive, and from disclosing their HIV status to family, friends, and sexual partners. Myths and outdated perceptions about how HIV is transmitted and the implications of an HIV diagnosis have resulted in discriminatory treatment towards, and violence against, people living with HIV.
Unfortunately, Temptation can only serve to perpetuate stigma. Your film depicts people with HIV as untouchable and unlovable, doomed to a lifetime of loneliness, and unable to tell their own stories. It implies that men with HIV are sexually irresponsible and predatory. And the final image — that of a woman who has been infected with HIV due to an extramarital affair walking away alone and unhealthy — sends the message that HIV is a punishment for immoral behavior.
Mr. Perry, as a leader in the African-American community, is this really the message you want to send in 2013, over three decades into this epidemic? Your impact on beliefs, attitudes, and behaviors in the community is not insignificant. And if you portray people with HIV as sinful, secretive monsters, unworthy of love and incapable of reproduction, what incentive do people have to learn their HIV status or for people with HIV to disclose their status?
