Hey, I’m happy for George and Amal Clooney. They seem awesome together, and they both do great humanitarian aid work. But adopting from Syria to “use the adoption to highlight the plight of orphans in countries like Syria”? White savior much? Fuck you…
The world needs less White Saviors, and more White people with power and privilege to approach “humanitarian aid” with humility.
American actor George Clooney and his new wife, British human rights attorney Amal Alamuddin Clooney, are reportedly looking to adopt a baby. Not just any baby, however—one from a “war-torn country,” according to reports from Woman’s Day and the Daily Mail.
According to a “source” close to the couple, the Clooneys hope to “use the adoption to highlight the plight of orphans in countries like Syria.”
