In the article, Nona tackles the issue of race in this paragraph:
Perhaps the most unnerving storyline of all is that of Carrie’s personal assistant, Louise (Jennifer Hudson). Clearly the point was to throw in a woman of color, but unfortunately the only one in sight is at the beck and call of an emotionally distraught white woman, resulting in one of the most blatant Mammy figures since Queen Latifah in that Steve Martin movie. Louise coos, jokes, and nurses Carrie back to health, all the while never receiving any of Carrie’s writing expertise in return. In the end, all she really gets is a Louis Vuitton bag as a souvenir before she heads for St. Louis to marry the nice black boy she left behind.
