Advice for white authors: always include the Starving African

Thanks to Henrik at Eclectic Grounds for this video advice to whities, and everyone else who is not black, but who nevertheless wants to write about them.

Here is one tip:

You must always include The Starving African, who wanders the refugee camp nearly naked, and waits for the benevolence of the West.  She can have no past, no history; such diversions ruin the dramatic moment.

Bites close to the bone – but still funny enough for Sunday Funday.

Enjoy
