Re: Vanessa Williams "Bashes" 'The Blind Side' on 'The View'
That's really interesting.
When I first heard the premise of the film, I thought the very same thing as Vanessa. Someone asked me to go and see it with him, and I replied that I would just wait until Dangerous Minds/Finding Forrester/Freedom Writers (etc. etc. etc) re-aired for free on cable.
But, I have haven't seen the film, while many of my friends have (some of whom are very sensitive to issues of race), and I have to say I've only heard good things about it. So I backed off with my negative impressions, at least until I can judge for myself. And I think in this case maybe Vanessa should have at least seen the film before criticising it.
