Why I won't read or watch "The Help"

Today's blog post on www.racialicious.com says it perfectly.

My mom and neighbor and my partner want me to read the book/watch the movie, but I haven't yet. I kind of was a little suspicious if I was going to like it or not. My partner says that it was reflecting back on how awful the civil rights movement was for African Americans being treated equally. I did read this article, and to some degree, I agree. I have mixed feelings. I am sick of movies where black people especially women are 'servants' etc. I like the more positive roles that blacks can take.
