If we are going to interfere in the lives of others, a little due diligence is a minimum requirement.
The most well-thought out and comprehensive analysis I have read of this predicament of the white person who wants to change the world, and doesn’t see that starting at home is the only way to do that that is not patronizing to that world… a subject that consumes my mind day and night. Thank you Teju Cole.
