What's disturbing is the attitude of those who are advising black people to buy and read the book or buy tickets and see the movie with words such as "Don't critique by osmosis. Make up your own minds." These people are encouraging black people to give money to the publishers, writers, and movie studios that insult them for profit. Reading their comments and supposed "reasonable advice" is like watching the House Negroes Parade. The Help is, after all, not unique. It's a rerun of white revisionism. And they want us to pay to read and watch it again?
