Exactly. You can't judge Outreachy and similar efforts in vacuum. You have to put them in perspective within the bigger picture of Open Source projects or Tech industry in general. Where we see extended discrimination against women and LGBT people. 

Where I live (Greece) we have many initiatives that try to help refugees. I'd be surprised if people start opposing these efforts on the ground of discrimination against native people. And if you isolate them, you may end up in that conclusion. But if you see the bigger picture (how EU countries treat refugees) you realize that these initiatives are actually a fight against discrimination and racism.
