Re: “A squalid wallow in Precious

When I watched the movie, I guess I was coming from a different perspective - I have seen Precious" walk through the halls of high schools in the past 18 years that I have been an educator. I have talked to mothers, who could have been Mary, and I have heard of their fathers - though none of them were HIV positive to my knowledge (but then that's just not something you blurt out in public). One of the most uncaring teachers I know is light, bright and damn near white, yet the most caring is the color of Blu - and then there are all the others who care of various "hues." In my mind, it is Neil Morris who is fueling the fire of intra-racism, not Lee Daniels. As an educator in a urban public school, I found the film up-llifting in that through all of Precious' trials and tribulations she survived - she garnered hope and courage and angry and strength - and she survived. And for the most part, she did it on her own. Those who assisted her did little more than say they cared - and most times, that's all it takes. And if a child is saved, do we really care who played the part. Just my opinion from a different perspective.
