Video: What a White Savior is and Why it's a Problem

The white savior is a literary and cinematic trope portraying a white character rescuing people of color from their plight. Critics have observed this narrative in an array of genres in American cinema; however, the white-savior narrative pre-dates the invention of cinema and is derived in large part from poems and novels created by British colonial writers, such as Rudyard Kipling. 273 more words
