This is also seen when husband, boyfriend or friends of women try to “help” them.Two examples came to mind; One was the scene in Get Out, when Rose Armitage played by Allison Williams and Chris Washington played by Daniel Kaluuya Were stopped by the police on their way to the family home of Rose.

But my piece is not much about the themes of “Get Out” but rather on the unconscious “white saviour” in interracial dating (in couples where one person is white). However, in my book, there is difference between supporting me when I am confronting racism and saving me.

Too many black people in interracial relationship have always found themselves in a situation where their white partner assumes the role of the avenger.

The police asked for Chris’s ID and Rose sensing an act of racial injustice spoke up for Chris and it could be argued that it was the currency of Rose’s whiteness that saved Chris’The second was in Star Wars “The Force Awakens”.

Main characters Rey and Han were in the desert facing their enemies when Han decided to lead Rey to safety, but she stopped him and informed him that she can help herself.

Since the story of Richard and Mildred Loving; one that has been ascribed as the “interracial love that changed history”, interracial relationship has become desirable.

We have seen increasing cross-racial romantic love stories breaking down barriers of what it means to fall in Love.

I told him, this is pure “white guilt” that has given rise to “white saviour”.

Then my white friend got angry that his husband called him “white saviour”, “despite all I have done to protect him”.

But the reality is, his partner never asked for that essence of white guilt makes many progressive and white liberals assume that they have the answer to racism and in the process, they devalue the people that actually have the struggle, people who are used to and well equipped to deal with it and respond to it.

Even when white people speaking up is done with good intention, the reality is, if white people feel they need to speak for us so we can get heard, they deny us of our agency.

There are many more people in the world who have moved on from having a Black or Asian friends(s) to actually have a Black or Asian in-law(s). We live in London, in an area considered urban and progressive, in part because of the amount of young people and interracial couples. We discussed how sometimes even the most woke white person crosses the line of being the black person’s spokesperson.
