But you have put the burden of proof on the TP to prove it's not a racist organization. If the burden is accepted, then the underlying assertion is given credence.

Limited partnerships, LLCs, Life Insurance, Grantor Retained Annuity Trusts, Qualified Personal Residence Trusts (not as widely used), lifetime giving, and the list goes on.
