Ethnic minority faculty members often find that their choices to publish in "ethnic minority" publications and outlets are not valued as much as more "traditional" publications. Therefore, such faculty members are often put in a position of trying to reach the most important population versus trying to get tenure by publishing in journals not typically read by affected populations.

Garza, H. (1993). Second-class academics: Chicano/Latino faculty in U.S. universities. In J. Gainen & R. Boice (Eds.), Building a diverse faculty (pp. 33–42). San Francisco: Jossey-Bass.

However, sometimes these individuals experience marginalization or a sense that they were not needed except to fill the organizations "quota" of ethnic minorities, particularly at administrative levels.
