Of course she stole the idea and made money off of it, that's all WP have ever done.
WW were mammies and housekeepers too back in those days, why didn't she just tailor her book around those realities? Because it would have NEVER sold. Whites use blacks and think it's okay.
If I were Mrs. cooper I wouldn't have wasted my time sueing her, people that lie like she did ALWAYS get what's coming to them. It may not come quickly as we'd like but they do end up paying for being so dishonest!

I don't feel too bad because I'm thinking the maid was a big mouth, frying pan waving sister like you who wouldn't know how to spend the money anyway.

Truth be Told.
It has been BW for the last 400 years that has raised White kids from well to do families. Personally, I would agree to reparations to BW and not even think twice about it.
The Irony is that story is based on events not less then 10 miles from ME.

Wow, lady you have problems. Every fictional character in every novel is based whole or in part on someone the author knew, heard about or read about.
You don't own the monopoly on every injustice done in this country. Your generalizations are no better than those in the book. So how does it feel to be racist? Don't like being called that? Don't feel like you are racist? Now you know how a whole lot of white people feel.
We have to get over it, I suggest you do as well or your honey beez are going to fly away.
