      Should We Want Movies Like Sandra Bullock’s The Blind Side?

      This movie is based on a true story. A rich white family really did adopt Michael Oher, a homeless black teenager, and eventually, he became an NFL star. In the real world, that’s very moving.

      In the manipulated world of movie trailers, however, Oher’s story is a disturbing revival of the “benevolent white master” trope.

      In other words, the trailer begs us to feel sorry for black people and feel grateful that there are white people in the world who can take of them.
