The Help

Posted in book porn by Lauren Leto on April 27, 2010

A white girl helped out all the blacks in town! Huzzah!

Don’t they recognize that as a potential point of criticism? It should be the first thing any critic looks at when you bring them a book about race relations.

The Help was a beautiful, moving book that took me about three seconds to read because I became so engrossed. All that aside, it’s another Blindside (not that I’ve seen the movie, I’m not one for lowering my IQ).

Here’s an idea, potential authors: write a book where a black person pulls out white author’s heads from between their asses.

(Note: Yeah, I know – those who can’t do, send BLOG HATE over the interwebz but I feel mean today.)

    While I liked The Help, this made me smile. I had a similar criticism of Forest Gump when that movie came out.
