Now, instead of the atrocious line "thank god it's them instead of youuuuuuuuu," it's "tonight we're reaching out and touching youuuuuuuu."

Does this make it even more white savior-y? I think it does. It's very "now we're helping you! Look at how excellent we are, and praise us for our help!"

DON'T WORRY AFRICA*, BONO IS COMING TO SAVE YOU ALL.

*I don't think Bono actually knows that Africa is a continent with many countries. Like, I actually don't.
