The Help


Is is just me or is everyone incredibly offended by the film The Help? I wasn't even aware that it was supposed to be based on the Civil Rights movement. I was so disgusted by the images of Black maids being so chummy with their employers. And as someone who read Aint' I A Women (bell hooks), When and Where I Enter (Paula Giddings) and other numerous critiques of this period I just couldn't stand the trailers for another day without speaking out.


Sometime a movie is just a movie but this is definitely not one of these times. Sisters and Brothers what say you?
