The publisher and owner of Attitude magazine, Darren Styles, is embroiled in a race row after telling Labour MP David Lammy, rudely criticizing him for his comments about BBC’s Comic Relief charity drive for sending presenter Stacey Dooley to make a film in Uganda. Lammy said that white saviors were not needed anymore. The Labour MP explained: “This just perpetuates tired and unhelpful stereotypes. Let’s instead promote voices from across the continent of Africa and have serious debate. “ The remark led Attitude owner Darren Styles said that as a man who raised money for tackling AIDS in Africa (though he is white) he understands that kindness has no color and he would like Lammy to understand it as well. “Fuming. Absolutely fuming. What a horrific thing to say. I’ve raised a ton of money to fight AIDS in Africa over years, and I don’t see myself or anyone who has helped me as a savior, let alone a white one,” the publisher wrote.
