12 years a slave

It is a fact - it is a plain fact that what is true and right is true and right for all. White and black alike.

The Help (Kathryn Stockett)

Dirty ain't a colour; disease ain't the Negro side a town (p.96)But the dichotomy of love and disdain living side-by-side is what surprises me (p.258)"If any white lady reads my story, that's what I want them to know. Saying thank you, when you really mean it, when you remember what someone done for you. it's so good." (p.260)We are just two people. Not that much separates us. Not nearly as much as I'd thought (p. 418) And then she say it, just like I need her to. "You is kind," she say. "You is smart. You is important." (p. 443)
