Michael Did Write The “White Walls” Essay
In the film, a teacher reads an essay written by Michael. In actuality, Michael penned the essay during his senior year. Michael’s wrote in part: “I look and I see white everywhere: white walls, white floors, and a lot of white people…. The teachers are not aware that I have no idea of anything they are talking about.
I do not want to listen to anyone, especially the teachers. They are giving homework and expecting me to do the problems on my own. I’ve never done homework in my life. I go to the bathroom, look in the mirror, and say, “This is not Mike Oher. I want to get out of this place.”
