Here is Wikipedia's explanation of "White savior narrative in film"

Quote
In film, the white savior narrative is a cinematic trope in which a white character rescues people of color from their plight. The white savior is portrayed as messianic and often learns something about themselves in the process of rescuing.[1] The trope reflects how media represents race relations by racializing concepts like morality as identifiable with white people over nonwhite people.[2] White saviors are often male and are sometimes out of place in their own society until they lead minorities or foreigners. Screen Saviors: Hollywood Fictions of Whiteness labels the stories as fantasies that "are essentially grandiose, exhibitionistic, and narcissistic". Types of stories include white travels to "exotic" Asian locations, white defense against racism in the American South, or white protagonists having "racially diverse" helpers.[3]

David Sirota at Salon.com said, "These story lines insinuate that people of color have no ability to rescue themselves. This both makes white audiences feel good about themselves by portraying them as benevolent messiahs (rather than hegemonic conquerors), and also depicts people of color as helpless weaklings—all while wrapping such tripe in the cinematic argot of liberation."[4] Noah Berlatsky in The Atlantic said the narrative varies from film to film, though slavery films, including award-winning ones, lack range in theme. He wrote, "All of these critically acclaimed films use variations on a single narrative: Black people are oppressed by bad white people. They achieve freedom through the offices of good white people."[5] The white savior narrative is considered a cliché in cinema of the United States; the narrative is especially common in films about white teachers in inner cities.[6]

Mary in South Africa (November 2-5, 2014):







Honestly I don't see genuine warm on mosh when she interacts with the children in pictures above, it looks very stage and using the kids as her props for cameras. I can see the kids are not amused around Mosh, the little girl doesn't seem to interest in mosh's presence and doesn't pay attention at all to her, she's even waggling her arms like she is annoyed when mosh's giving her little path on her chin for getting her attention.

compare to this,

Oh my what can you do with Mary, she will be Queen no matter what while married to Fred so there is not much choice, either lock her away in a Palace somewhere out of sight or put up with her bringing Denmark down to her level.  Blush

Denmark was a proud and respected country until Mary, so very sad to see a country decline like that Cry Cry Cry

At a refugee camp in Jordan, dressed for Glastonbury. As I recall the fringed shoulder bag was by Chloe and cost $1000.



South Africa - she stood about 2 metres away from her host, folder her arms and didn't make eye contact.

Myanmar 2014, the boy told Mary how he lost his mother. Couldn't you see the sympathy and maternal love the icon showed for the boy?  Angel

What a pretty outfit for visiting a Myanmar refugee. I'm sure the woman was impressed by the princess's style.

Africa just brings out the best of the Icon. See how much the Icon loves brown kids. The brown kids' hands are too weak so she either refrained from touching them or used one finger. She showed such consideration for their conditions.






And the Icon knows best:



P. S. Anyone got a photo of Mary in Asia (Malaysia I think) after the Tsunami where she poked a baby with one finger. This pre-dates RD. and I can't find it on google images either.
