If I was a white growing up in Mumbai I would feel disparaged by the lack of Westerners or whites in Bollywood productions but that doesn't mean that Bollywood or Indian society should change to accommodate my minority view.

You missed the point. This isnt about economics. The theorist realized that western culture is the obstacle to their vision of a classless society. You mention balkanization of progressivism. The goal isnt progressivism that is far too mild. So it is not important to achieve yours or progressives vision of society according to these theorist. Progressives are the current useful idiots. They seemingly don't recognize that in their strides for unity and social equality that they are creating further division. The next batch of useful idiots are the people being co-opted when researching this and the reactionaries.
