The 'white savior complex' is a perception that white folk have that they are the benevolent benefactors of helpless 'others.'
|Jesus ain't white, and I'm no savior|
Rather than perpetuate the myth that white folk are somehow the world's saving grace, we need to empower others to take the lead. It takes intentionality and careful attention to provide support while stepping aside to share in leadership. It can be tempting to get caught up in a sense of urgency than makes it seem like things will fall apart without us, but have faith that God will raise up strong leaders of color that have many powerful gifts for the community.
