Tyler Perry Tells A Big Lie About The Gender Pay Gap In The Black Community

Tyler Perry appeared on a podcast recently and a clip where he spoke about the gender pay gap in the black community has gone viral. His premise was that black women typically make more than black men. The numbers do not back him up. Black women earn about 90% of what black men earn as it relates to median income in the United States. The highest gap between men and women of the same race goes to Asians with a nearly 80% ratio. No race group of women has a higher median income than their same-race male counterparts. Tyler Perry, well-known for his “Madea” movie empire, simply repeated a false talking point that has been very popular as of late for some odd reason.
