This!!! The entire nonprofit sector in America was built on White people making careers of “helping" Black or brown people. It’s kind of like beating someone, then asking them not to cry or scream for help. White people, in particular White women, have truly benefited from poor people’s suffering. From charitable fundraising to nonprofit jobs serving communities of color, to failing to incorporate hiring the very poor people they claim they want to become upwardly mobile, white people sure do know how to fetishize poverty. And trust me, people of color are tired of being in the oppression Olympics.
