In America, it's beginning to play out now as true competition in light of the recent focus on Anti-Asian bigotry in the past month or so. It's bringing out the tensions between blacks and East Asians in various aspects of life (from physical violence in the streets to school admissions).

Funnily enough, the woke mantra up to that point has been how Asians were "model minorities" who somehow don't deserve their (over)achievements in American society. Within a month, this aged very badly:

Dozens of officials, including mayor, ask SF school board VP Alison Collins to step down

Alison Collins once wrote a long Twitter thread accusing Asian Americans of using "white supremacist thinking to assimilate and 'get ahead,'" and comparing them to a "house n****r" (she added the asterisks and did not spell out the word).
It is amusing, if nothing else, seeing the mental gymnastics these lunatics go through and tying themselves up into a Gordian knot of 'logic'. Surely it would be so much simpler for them just to admit they couldnt give a **** for racial equality and what they're actually after is a ranking, plain and simple, of deserving ethnics with the others being various forms of 'oppressor'. God help you if you're white of course, but its interesting to see them turn on the Asians whilst in the same breath screeching about Asian hate crimes, after they did their part to stoke said fires.
The sheer number of hypocritical positions you see them take is starting to make one dizzy.

There was an interesting, if utterly anecdotal, thread floating about on Reddit recently asking when people ditched liberalism (the American corruption of it at any rate) and 'progressivism' and why. The answers were rather illuminating, and saddening for that matter. Suffice it to say most of them came from people who fully believe in racial equality but are sick of being called privliged violent racist by simply being white (or asian in a couple of instances). The one that really stood out to me was of some chap who was a cripple and worked as a janitor at a school and lost the plot after being called priviliged , sexist, (and all those other delightful nothing words) by some black lesbian academic on $400K whilst he was lucky to scrape $20k.

The perversion that tis ideology is in how it reinforces racial stereotypes, hate and at its core seeks to divide really is spreading like a disease through the nominally learned quarters. The one thing that really stands out to me though is how such people dont recognise the rank hypocrisy and irony they have to live with on a daily basis. Supposedly opposing racism/sexism/**phobia yet practicing them all on a daily basis. The mind boggles.

Who gives a toss about poverty in Africa when there are graver concerns such as the intersectionality of racism, sexism and fatphobia in the cafeteria.

Habib is not a Black person and therefore not allowed to say that word under any circumstances whatsoever. By doing so, he has caused irrevocable harm and trauma to the Black population of SOAS and it is right he should resign. He should also be fined and the proceeds go to a Black student scholarship at SOAS.

Are you trolling or do you seriously think that black people are that thin skinned, weak and otherwise incapable of hearing anything that they cant hear a mere word without keeling over nearly at the point of death? The fact you seem deliberately ignorant of the context is rather troubling aswell. A case in point as to why people find this sort of rubbish risible.
Actually, given your ignominious history of posts you probably are trolling.
