Teju Cole shits over much of white mens interference in Africa
Africa has provided a space onto which white egos can conveniently be projected. It is a liberated space in which the usual rules do not apply: a nobody from America or Europe can go to Africa and become a godlike savior or, at the very least, have his or her emotional needs satisfied.
I can assure him I have no disillusions of being a godlike saviour and my emotional needs are certainly not satisfied.
I protest too much.
