I am interested in the topic of dominant caste, Savarna, saviorism toward Dalit women and White saviorism towards Black women.
I am going to explain what saviorism looks like for Black women and then what saviorism looks like for Dalit women. I will then compare the two and show the similarities between them. I am also going to provide the reasons why saviorism is bad and how to detect it.
I want you, readers, to understand that these two communities may seem very different, because one is about race and one is about caste, but they are actually very similar when you learn about them.
