Weekly photo challenge: Wrong

Something is wrong about this photo.  When an Englishman stands behind African men in one of their feluccas on their river in their country, when he is the passenger, not the worker, when he’s wearing a white pith helmet and smoking a pipe with his hands on his hips, it’s clear he’s dominating them.  And that’s always wrong.

This confident colonial chap seems to have been living under a hot sun for quite a while;  his skin is almost as dark as the sailors’.
