It’s not about breakfast cereal anymore

Today I received in my e-mail a notice about The Racial Equity Anchor Collaborative funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation.

Reading through the blurb it appears to be an organization to funnel voters into the Democrat Party because there's no policy or plans, just vague buzz words about racial healing, equity and full potential: Nine organizations.

  • NAACP;
  • Advancement Project’s national office;
  • Asian & Pacific Islander American Health Forum (APIAHF);
  • Demos;
  • Faith in Action;
  • National Congress of American Indians,
  • National Urban League;
  • Race Forward;
  • UnidosUS.

Seems to have evolved out of the Ferguson riots 4 years ago.

We have so many wealthy foundations and non-profits throwing money at social justice and racial equity projects I'm beginning to see them as part of the problem rather than part of the solution. I'm wondering if the bureaucracy of the NGOs (there are 1.5 million in the U.S.) isn't rivaling that of the federal government.
