Frameworks for Understanding Racial Inequities

Over the years, a variety of frameworks have emerged to question the persistence of racial disparities across every indicator of well-being, from health to education to the labor market. In a society stratified along racial, ethnic and gendered lines, these models tackle racial inequality by asking: How should race be named when crafting programs and policies? Will more diverse institutions yield an equitable society? How has a long history of racialized policies, practices and values led to disparate outcomes among communities of color? And Funders for LGBTQ asks: How do all of these questions relate to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer communities of color? We start by comparing four prevailing frameworks.
