No but I know who you mean my opinion got removed
It’s perfectly fine for people of all races to help one another. The white savior complex is its own thing in itself. I’m not like an expert or anything, so my explanation and probably won’t be perfect. It’s good when people help each other because of genuine compassion. The white savior complex is when white people help people of color because they want to be praised, or because they want to show “proof” that they’re not racist, or because they look down on people and want to feel superior. One example, I’m not sure how long ago this was but a white woman with no medical training travelled to Africa and began “treating” and performing medical procedures on African people. She had no clue what she was doing and was basically copying YouTube tutorials. She killed a whole bunch of people. That right there is a prime example of the damaging effects of a white savior complex. If she genuinely wanted to help people she wouldn’t have done that.

Yes. Whenever ou include the skin color in any conversation, you risk committing a racist act. Get skin color outta the discussion already. Lol noth8ng could be more irrelevant.

The slaves my ancestors owned are actually pretty lucky when you consider the plight of most African slaves enslaved by their fellow Africans and sold to arabs and turks. Like how many descendants of African slaves live in Arab countries or turkey today? Very few because African Male slaves were castrated and African female slaves were taken as house field and sex slaves. African slaves in central and south America had a high mortality rate by contrast very few African slaves came to these shores and those that did prospered for it.
My predecessors were not slave owners dumbass.
@Girther10 Then guess what dumbass, this doesn't apply to you. I know, it's fascinating, but not every little thing happening in the world is about you.
@Girther10 how do you know? Slavery was big all over Africa, Europe and asia back in the day?
So people who call white charity workers white saviours are racist
Thankyou. God bless you sir🙏
True, but it’s usually the white people like Jenna Bush you are “saving” the Africans.
As long as someone does it, it doesn't matter
