No organisation is perfect, but at least they put the effort in and changed for the better.

“They weren’t even trying to be diverse in terms of reflecting the people who they served,” said Dana Vickers Shelley, a former staff member who was among the highest-ranking black employees at the center.

“It’s not unusual for whites who run institutions and organs aimed at improving the lot of nonwhites to assume that they know what’s best and to give more credence to their point of view about what’s best,” said Ms. McPherson, then speaking broadly about such groups.

At the center, leadership seemed to show little interest in engaging with, or even acknowledging, the organization’s own internal biases, current and former employees said.
I think this is a pretty good critique of such organisations.

The SPLC has done lots of good work that should not be dismissed, but even the most well-meaning people have biases, and these biases should address rather than ignored.

It is hilarious.

You can never be woke enough for the left, on the left. Someone else, even more morally righteous, is always wokier. Wokier than the most woke five minutes ago...
