These are all great thoughts and I am so glad that everyone is enjoying themselves thus far.
I love Wanda Sykes, and I could just imagine her doing that in Babies R Us, Kevin.
For me, I've dealt with discrimination based not on skin color, but weight. I grew up as a heavy child and became a heavy adult. It really limited my experiences as a child living in a community like mine. Once I lost the weight, it was interesting to see how people who shunned me when I was heavy reacted so differently once I was lighter.
I really like Aibileen as a character. She is strong, smart, and caring. I admire how she was able to keep it together in the scene with her employer. I don't know if I'd be able to keep my cool as well as she did. That really says something about her as an individual.
