Explorations in Ethnic Studies
Before developing programs to help minority women, program developers should assess themselves. White men usually create problems that cause minority women to need programs developed. White men who have had minimal social contact with minority women are not qualified to solve minority women's problems. White men ask white women and minority men to give assistance in solving minority women's problems. White women, who have been considered superior to minority women because of social, educational, or economical circumstances, are not qualified to solve minority women's problems. Minority men who have chauvinist values and do not have minority women's concerns at heart are not qualified to solve minority women's problems. Minority women are best qualified to solve minority women's problems.
