The White-Savior Industrial Complex

See on Scoop.itOUR COMMON GROUND Informed Truth and Resistance

If we are going to interfere in the lives of others, a little due diligence is a minimum requirement.

OUR COMMON GROUND Omnibus‘s insight:

"But I disagree with the approach taken by Invisible Children in particular, and by the White Savior Industrial Complex in general, because there is much more to doing good work than "making a difference." There is the principle of first do no harm. There is the idea that those who are being helped ought to be consulted over the matters that concern them."
