Dehumanize their stories, make them look less human. You hear about numbers but never their names. Sensationalize their pains with your “investigate reporting” and leave them when you get distracted. Savior complex. Let’s save these poor souls. Erase their histories. Do not speak of their ancestors and who they were before you came. When you speak to me, address them like hopeless children, like you see what they do not see. Sit in when their issues are being discussed but do not and i repeat, do not let them voice their opinions where your issues are concerned. Whatever you do, their children are not like yours. Their eyes are not as pure as yours. So, who cares if you destroy their homeland? Remember, you are here to save them. They will understand someday. These people, they need help! Loads of it. Oh! One more thing, do not forget to take pictures. Lots of pictures. You know, we have to see how you interact with the locals.

Again, it’s estimated that two or three blacks were lynched each week in the American South during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Compare that to conservative reports from the FBI that, in the seven years between 2005 and 2012, a white officer used deadly force against a black person almost two times every week. A deeper analysis by the Malcolm X Grassroots Movement found that, in just 2012, police killed more than 313 black people — one every 28 hours. MXGM also found that 44% of those killed were unarmed and 43% were not in the process of of committing a crime, but stopped by police for “suspicious activity.”
