Dakarai Molokomme, a 15-year-old starving child from a small village in Zimbabwe, has just told Madonna, one of the most famous pop stars in the world, to go and f*** herself, the local media are reporting exclusively.
“Yes, it’s true, I told Madonna to go f*** herself. Do you want to know why?” Dakarai asked. “It’s the same thing every time with these snobby rich Americans. Every once in a while they come to show us their support for the so-called eradication of poverty by adopting a child from a starving family, but they actually do more harm than good. Transracial international adoptions are part of the white savior industrial complex,” Dakarai explained.
In further discussions with journalists from the media, the kid stated that “none of the children here actually want to be taken away from their family and friends so they can be displayed as some kind of trophy in the homes of self-righteous singers or actors who want to score some points with the media and Oprah.”
“If they really want to help us, they should get Big Pharma to ship us some anti-retroviral drugs for the AIDS epidemic, or build schools and hospitals. If they don’t want to do that, then they can all go f** themselves!” the child told reporters.
The 15-year-old also stated that he would say the same thing to any one of those American or European “faux humanitarian posers”, except for Bono, whom he said he would also kick in the groin.
“Bono’s efforts to save the African savage from itself prove that the colonial imperative is alive and well,” Dakarai said as he walked with other village children collecting sticks to build a tree fort.
THIS IS THE RAWEST 15 YEAR OLD ALIVE
Call me cynical, but I’m calling bullshit on this. Every link leads to the same article on the same site, and this sounds EXACTLY like what tumblr kids WANT children to say to justify their self righteous condemnation of all people who try to help in ways they disagree with (which very well may be a problem!), and the title screams clickbait.
Not that White Saviorism isn’t a problem, or that I don’t agree a bit with the viewpoint, but I’m severely doubting the source. You can’t believe anything on the internet anymore, ESPECIALLY “reporting” from another country because nobody freaking fact checks ESPECIALLY when it requires fluency in another language, as well as the saavy to know which news sources are reliable from there. That’s why you have so many bullshit stories about the far east. Who can be bothered to research when there’s a clickbait headline to sell?
Perhaps we’ll find out the veracity someday. I think it is super important to hear from the actual people who are made into faceless charity causes, and how they really feel their lives could be improved. Even if it is completely made up, it is food for thought.
And you’re perfect right to call bullshit on it. Here’s the original article:
Let’s have a loot at some of their other headlines:

""but that book character has blue/grey/light eyes so obviously they’re white!!"" ://///
I was recently complimented on the amount of “snape hate” posts I reblog. now keep in mind I do not hate snape, I think he’s a wonderful character, and I don’t consider the posts “hate” so much as genuine criticism of his douchebaggery. but the phrase “snape hate” is fun to say because vowels.
Speaking of obsessing over dead people, have you heard about this group who calls themselves “Christians”? They keep saying everything they do is for this dead guy named Chris. Drowning babies, burning witches…it all goes back to Chris.
I don’t think google gets enough credit sometimes
