Citizens of Boomtown support the Ukrainian people
I think it is over analysed, personally. My view is accept it for what it was. Thoughts?
We still talk about Live Aid today because it was an outsized, outrageous event designed to shake people awake by its sheer magnitude and audacity. It was very effective in raising awareness for the underlying cause, and woke many people to action or at least donation to support the effort to ease the burden of those who were (are) suffering. It was a highly honorable move, coming from anybody. It was in response to a human problem, and the people who undertook Live Aid were as human, whatever their color, as the famine victims. People of color from within Africa had indeed raised their voices to seek such support in the political arena, but couldn’t push the message effectively to such a broad western audience In 1985.
Too many people using the wisdom of hindsight ................. For me the following quote sums the article up;
"Others question the motives and effectiveness of a bunch of wealthy celebrities—most of them white—trying to swoop in and save Africa."
So would it have been better if they sat on their wealth arses and did nothing??
We're one humanity, so why should only certain elements of that humanity be able to try to solve certain problems? In such a devisive world, who decides who helps who??
Load of bollox.
Absolutely. ‘The white saviours’. Accept it for what it was. People seeing their fellow humans across the planet starving. we were all moved but weren’t able. A couple of famous people could do something. So they did. That’s all.
