I'm not sure if any of you have seen this, but this poor girl is treated awful by everyone around her. Her mother, father, people at school, people on the street. It really seems as if she has nowhere to turn and I feel awful for her; my heart went out to her. Do you ever feel that way while watching a movie? I know I do. (I felt the same way for Michael Oher (Big Mike) in The Blind Side; which I also watched today. Great movie, watch it!)
I absolutely could not understand the way Precious's mother treated her! The things she yelled were just awful! She threw things at her; glass jars, swung a pan at her head, a flower pot at her back and even tried dropping a television on her and her newborn babys head!
I should have gotten an abortion. You're worthless. I knew right when the doctor handed you to me that you were worthless. You're fat. You're so fucking stupid.
Her mother even said something along the lines of: You fucked my man and had kids with him, how dare you! The man that Precious so called fucked was her own father. Her flesh and blood. The man raped her. And he had been since she was three years old. Her mother knew all along and did nothing to stop it. I don't understand how something goes on like that and you do nothing!
Her mother didn't care about her going to school to get an education. All she wanted her for was her welfare check. Precious's mother used her own mother and granddaughter as a reason to get more money from welfare.
This sounds like something to should be added into Busted Kate's categoy of "And Yet THESE People Can Procreate". I will never be like this woman. EVER.
