You may have seen this photo floating around Facebook this week. It’s an image Leigh Anne Tuohy, the woman Sandra Bullock played in “The Blind Side,” shared of herself and two young black guys, with a caption explaining how she basically profiled them while they sat “huddled together” at a table in her business. When a friend of hers suggested they were “up to no good,” she went over to “ask what was happening.” Because, you know, any time two young black men are “huddled together,” something must be “happening.” Anyway, you can read the rest of her caption yourself, as well as all the kudos and pats on the back she got from followers for “not judging a book by its cover,” (ha!). But this post, “Leigh Anne Tuohy, Racism, and the White Saviour Complex,” really sums up my — and a lot of people’s — feelings about the whole thing.

This woman’s response to nosy people who question her parenting is: “I’ll Keep That in Mind.” Mine is a simple: “I’m his mother,” which I have found works really, really well at diffusing the situation and getting my point across without being confrontational or overly defensive. [via HuffPost]
