    This article works from the assumption that non profits are not actually arms of political parties (which are in turn arms of corporations and big money) and that POC would be willing to stay “in line” to provide politically palatable, useful, weak, false and incomplete narratives that left leaning politicians could continue use to describe whats happening to people in poverty – esp POC peoples. I would like to believe that they, POC leadership, would not continue to manage dissent in POC communities if they were allowed into positions of leadership,,, but I have seen, my experience tells me, that they will, do and are – a lot. Just perhaps not as reliably and effectively as their white professional counterparts,,,, yet. This article distracts from the heart of the fight – keeping us wrestling with issues of race.

    Racism and Racial Division – Power and monies strategy – FUELED by a million articles like this, and I dare say, the very non prof organizations, advocacy and justice groups described here.

    But, too often, leaders seem to regard critiques related to the lack of internal staff diversity as signs of disloyalty.

    In future essays the author may wish to include discussions of intellectual diversity. Our nonprofit, for one example, operates in a town best described as lower working class yet we had no Trump supporter on board despite 64% of residents the casting a ballot for him. Our discussions about our lack of diversity are quite robust.
