With previous APIA posts said, I don’t think that you can:
1) say that there isn’t anti-blackness in a lot of our communities or step away from the fact that it needs to be address (and we can’t shy away from it or try to resolve it behind closed doors).
2) compare the experience of all APIA oppression as equivalent to all other POC oppression. We face colorism, colonialism, racism, xenophobia, sexism, fetishization, objectification, exploitation and all sorts of damaging impacts of white supremacy and Eurocentrism. BUT we don’t experience it in the same way or same degree as other POC. Just as there is a variant gauge of experienced oppression within our communities. As a sansei male, my experienced oppression is very different than the experienced oppression of an undocumented APIA woman. We need to honor that the same variant gauge of oppression exists in the broader POC lived experience.
Oh my god, could it be? Someone else acknowledge that there is a racial hierarchy even within the POC community.
Race is socially constructed. Different groups are racialized in different ways and have been throughout history. The primary purpose of this differential racialization is still to benefit the majority group (eg. white supremacy—the CRT definition.) Also see: intersectionality.
