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
I like how there’s a paragraph ripping on Bono in this, and how everyone’s going to just accept that this is fact, when in reality Bono is basically directly responsible for the most comprehensive AIDS initiative for African countries ever. Bono spent so much time convincing the Bush Administration that Aids was a problem that Bush enacted The President’s Emergency Plan For AIDS Relief, which is still cited as the largest and most important health initiative ever.
PEPFAR has saved millions of lives, and in almost every source available, from biographies to nonfiction encyclopedias on AIDS, Bono is cited as the main reason that anyone in the White House took any action at all.
But hey some unidentified African kid just wants to rip apart the celebrity savior mindset (he’s probably correct in doing so), and get more help for his country (the kids right they need help, he’s doing a good job).
But don’t attack Bono man, Bono’s a hero in every sense of the word. The man is literally responsible for millions of lives saved, and he’s brought international awareness of the problem to a whole different spectrum. It annoys me that there’s 100,000 notes on this thing, just a bunch of kids reblogging a little ignorance without taking the time to check their facts before they spread the information.
