    I’ve always assumed that more people in the south at that time were more like Hilly than Skeeter or Celia regarding their attitudes toward black people.  I was surprised that Senator Whitworth alluded to the governor being wrong about his beliefs.  I recently read somewhere that Viola Davis regretted her role in the movie because it inaccurately portrays the prevalence of loving relationships between white ladies and their black maids.
