This is the reason a black actor/pruducer/director/screenwriter is successful?

Yes, it is the reason A black producer/screenwriter/director is successful and not 20 of them
No, it's the reason why there are so very few of them that make it to those echelons.

I'm not saying you guys are wrong. Just trying to understand the reasoning. The link @Jinx provided show how blacks are not properly recognized for their talents, which I think is 100% true.

Are there any other black screenwriters/directors attempting to put out Tyler Perry style movies?

The point is a lack of supply of movies for the black community means the ones there are do exceedingly well, even if they’re crap.

I'm pretty positive there are plenty of BIPOC filmmakers who would love to be able to tell their stories but can't get their foot in the door to get them made. There's a reason why they are only 13% of the blockbuster productions and more than 50% at places like Sundance.

Thanks for the clarification. Happened to come across this link, which puts what you're saying in perspective.
