So, this week, a man of color helmed the passing of one of the most influential pieces of legislation in our lifetimes.
But don’t worry, that doesn’t mean that your average of colors are able to do much on their own. And remembering that fact is crucial to sticking to the Oreo lifestyle.
The Oreo Experience is therefore very excited to see casting news for “The Help.” The Help is based on the book of the same name by author Kathryn Stockett. In this book, a white woman comes home from college to find that her beloved maid is gone. She decides to look into the matter and after losing her precious possession, she figures out that racism is a bummer and then gives some RBP (other maids) the ability to break their chains.
Even better is who’s attached!!!
- Author Kathryn Stockett: White.
- Writer/Director Tate Taylor: Probably has freckles.
- Likely starring (and discussed long before the two major RBP actresses who, despite TOE’s suggestion, must be in the film) Emma Stone: Totally sunburns.
- Producer Christopher Columbus: I know, it’s too good to be true.
Who better to tell the story of some black women suffering from the oppression of a firmly entrenched class and race system? Just like Spielberg’s MLK flick, a core production team of this shade removes any hint of uncomfy verisimillitude from the whole process. Because movies should be fun, not awkward!
Making a movie about the lives of oppressed black women? Meet your dream team!!!
Can’t wait to see what they’ll tackle next! Harriet Tubman biopic, anyone??
