Former Blackburn boss Ince, now in charge at Notts County, is the only black manager at one of the 92 league clubs.
He said: "I try to be the flagship. I went into the Premier League as the first black manager to encourage other people to take that role in the future.
"When you see what has happened to Chris Hughton, it's disappointing. Chris was very good at his job. He proved that last season and has proved it again this season.
"We have so many talented black players in the Premier League and the Football League.
"People who have worked for the best managers and played with the best players and have a vast knowledge of the game.
"Yet these players are just going into TV or radio work and we're missing out on them. That's sad.
"I'm the proof that it can happen."
