WPTTR! – White People To the Rescue

Listen up, kids. Did you think for one minute that maybe you didn’t really need to keep up the fight? Worried that your inner bleaching efforts were all in vain? That maybe, just maybe we didn’t need to lighten up a little?

They're Watching...out for us! :)

They’re watching…out for us! 🙂

Well, thanks again to Hollywood for reminding us that is not the case at all.

In the new movie, The Blind Side, Sandra Bullock saves a poor kid of color in that special way that only rich white

people can. Further kudos to pearly-skinned writer/director John Lee Hancock for telling the story of a black person in the very special way that only a rich white person can. Further rounds of applause for Warner Bros for leaving folks of color out of the major above the line positions on the script. That would only bring an uncomfortable verisimilitude to the whole process.

So keep your chins up and any natural inclinations at bay. We’re Marching on to Zion and with the right help, we’ll get there one day.

  1. At first I thought the soulful quiet black boy would teach the frazzled white lady how to love.

    Boy was I wrong. I’m still confused why they encouraged him to play football though – or at least why they didn’t push him to be a punter. Probably too big for that. I bet she could’ve guided him into being a great long-snapper though, that would’ve been more appropriate.

  2. I’m in it! I’ve been getting the daily elamis for a week already, but haven’t really started conscientiously using them. Call it laziness or waiting for this challenge… I don’t know!I probably won’t post tomorrow because we’re gettin’ ready to head out of town for a few days (so I’ll have to remember to print out the first page of the PDF to take along!), but I’ll join in on the 15th and 30th for sure.
