8 Ways People of Color are Tokenized in Nonprofits

All well and good, but what I dont see here are proposed solutions, just a general rehashing of the problem… not to mention the irony that non-profits generally cant bring on POC *because* the pay is so miserable — as you yourself point out.

However, we come back to the one-size-fits-all complaint: “rich white men provide most of the funding”. You’d rather they didnt? Shall we cut that funding source off because it’s not pure enough for you? Granted, I’ve not worked with as many non-profits as you appear to, but I cant remember a time when someone sent in a donation with the caveat that only white people were to benefit. Folks generally know why they’re contributing to something and how the money’s going to be spent, and by and large they dont quibble about its distribution because they understand the social problems the non-profit is trying to address.

But I guess people will see what they want to see.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
