White people were in the movie Precious
yo this is exactly what I was thinking when I heard about that tweet from the Girls writer
They were stage left otherwise known as the oppressive welfare system, the housing projects where Precious lives, the food system she consumed, the harmful beauty standards she could never live up to that robbed her of her self worth…
White people viewed the movie exactly how I expected: About black pathology, black pain and suffering.
I viewed it as I read the book: this is being black in an oppressive white world.
