Give to 'minority-led' charities, or else.


Welcome to the latest trend in racial extortion.

"No one can convince me that United Way provides better service directly to minorities than a minority-led organization," [an extorter] told us recently. "We're in the trenches. There is no way that [nonminorities] can connect and have more traction and effect than organizations with leaders who live in those communities day in and day out."

The Florida report, like the studies Greenlining has done in other states, makes clear that the agitation for "diversity in philanthropy" isn't about donating to causes that help minorities. It's a jobs program for college-educated minorities who want to work in nonprofits.

Aren't all nonprofits just job programs for English and Anthropology majors?
