Looking ahead: RACE FATIGUE? The surge in racial justice-based white philanthropy that swept through the nation in the wake of the murder of George Floyd less than a year ago is tragically dwindling among Orlando’s political and corporate elites. Why? Is it white indifference? Race fatigue? Are whites now desensitized to anti-Black police violence? Platitudinal social-justice statements published by corporations big and small have been replaced by nonsensical investments in diversity and inclusion and traditional philanthropy as opposed to strategic philanthropy aimed at change and change leaders dedicated to removing the knees, chokeholds and bullets from the souls of Black folk.
