Television presenter Stacey Dooley has been accused by David Lammy MP of being a “white saviour”…for helping poor children in Africa. No, that’s not a joke.
Lammy thinks that white people trying to help starving people in Africa is perpetuating some kind of colonial narrative, which proves to me he cares more about race than he does about helping vulnerable people.
What’s so wrong with Stacey Dooley using her profile to help people in need? And why isn’t Lammy stepping up to the plate, if he thinks white people shouldn’t be doing it?
No, Stacey Dooley isn’t a white saviour.
