They respond to emails, if one coaches things in the language of white fragility.

Statistics show that the majority of their funding arrives at elite institutions. The rigidity of their requirements is probably the cause. They take little action beyond public statements and policy statements to address gate-keeping.


Inadvertently exerts negative influence in the field, Culturally incompetent, Bureaucratic, Risk averse
