Kristof’s White Savior Pose Critiqued Again

I’ve gotten a lot of sudden traffic on this small site recently, and much of it is a result of Anne Elizabeth Moore’s recent takedown of Nicholas Kristof, which you can read in the always-excellent The Baffler, here. Welcome, new folks, and please check out my ‘about this blog‘ post, or heck – just poke around a bit. 

Anne’s critique of Kristof is beter and more thorough than my own early and abortive attempts.  Moore has done work in Cambodia and maintains a very active web presence, which you can check out by starting here.  She wrote an earlier takedown of Kristof with author and activist Melissa Gira Grant, which compiles some other people’s critiques as well, including mine, here.

I’m grateful that folks like Anne Elizabeth Moore and others are taking Kristof to task. Brava!
