Rachel is a simply another White woman who participated in the nonprofit tokenism racket that’s rampant in the U.S. Check out this important piece about White folks in the nonprofit sector benefiting from “helping” people of color.

Rachel “tokenizes” Black people for personal gain just like so many other White women in the nonprofit sector, which is why I don’t spend anytime discussing her. Great piece Sam, but don’t spend too much time about the small picture. The bigger issues is Black tokenism.
