I really enjoyed this show, and I'm so glad I recently discovered SOF! I think Wainaina's insights are applicable to many situations where those in privileged positions want to "help" those in less powerful situations. You can see it in suburban folks trying to help inner city folks, for example, in the U.S. As a white woman who has worked in the inner city for many years (in the family planning field), I've felt first hand this tension. Thanks for taking the time to explore this important and difficult issue.
