Well done. When white people want to “fix things by running things,” it’s just another form of the “white man’s burden” — taking care of those poor natives we just subjugated. Our sense of entitlement and narcissism is part of our “culture,” and we have to rid ourselves of it. It’s also high time that we understood that sharing power and wealth with people who don’t look like us does not diminish what we have. There is enough. There is enough for everyone.
