I agree with-95% of what Leonard Pitts writes. So I was saddened to read his column today about "The Help." He repeated (implying he agreed with) criticism he had heard from (elderly) blacks that this was simply a "feel good white movie." He said it was stereotyped but "a good attempt." One good point was, supposedly there are lots of blacks clamoring to have their own versions published. Where are those books and why haven't we seen them in the mainstream press? My only guess is that maybe the manuscripts are too bitter ... and maybe because the movie gave two of the characters happy endings it was more palatable? I'm going to see it again. I loved it.
