I'm not sure if Sandra Bullock's character is ever actually named in the film beyond being called "Mom" but near the end of the film she is shown speaking very very briefly to a few of the women on her Son's "Black" list. The brief exchanges are all about her Son though so it does not pass.

Saffran disagreed with the rating and said:
The son in question being a 9-year old? That hardly qualifies as a man. The character of Sandra is named actually (Linda Schell) as are the other women.
