There’s actually quite a few similar comments on this article here.
I almost get the people who are well intentioned and swept up in the hype, even if they’re paternalistic and ignorant, but I just don’t get the flat out racists who are angry that the people they hate don’t want to be saved by them.

Yes, Ugandans simply want to sweep their own problems under the rug, but will we white people who weren’t aware of this until the week ago let them?!!

HOLY WHITE PRIVILEGE, BATMAN.
I posted this video, then this girl I’m friends with shared it, then this guy commented so I had to argue.

“In the nicest way possible, they just need to shut up, because the awareness it’s spreading is really in their best interests.”


… “they obviously can’t comprehend the persuasive devices used”
that white person obviously can’t comprehend that black people are human beings…


^^white americans  vs. ^^ the rest of the world 

holy fuck. someone said another person said that. but really. actual victims of the person westeners think they are saving them from and they need to shut up?!?! i posted this video on my page and someone is getting the ultimate fucking smackdown if they come on my shit with that.

This right here is why I do not accept that bullshit cop-out “but it’s spreading awareness!!1!!1” I’ve been seeing so much of. If the “awareness” you’re spreading is rife with misinformation and flat out lies, what good is it doing anyone? The only purpose it serves is to make people feel like they’ve done something when in reality all they’ve done is fallen head over heels for some white savior bullshit.

black people don’t recognize irony? WHAT THE FUCK?

Why don’t you show some appreciation to the white people who fix the houses on the reserves they forced you into?

Because of our recent military gains in much of Afghanistan, women are no longer imprisoned in their homes. They can listen to music and teach their daughters without fear of punishment..The fight against terrorism is also a fight for the rights and dignity of women.

White hipsters to the rescue!

Yeah, why should Africans criticize white Americans for assuming they know what is best for Uganda after watching a thirty minute video on youtube?

"The main water source is contaminated. The animals that are the main food source are becoming deformed. The communities themselves are being ravaged with fatal sicknesses way beyond normal statistical levels."

Sure, we stole their land, tried to kill them all off, tried to assimilate them, poisoned their environment and are now slowly poisoning them horrifically, but at least we hire them!  Before promptly firing them, of course.
