Is white men??.would that include women as the most oppressed??, and oppressed by whom?? other white ppl ??, and good question someone asked , what
exactly is "white"
it's not the same everywhere in the world at the same time , just like Black it is subject to change depending on nation or
circumstances eg Benjamin Franklin had a much narrower view as to who was white and who was not!, this included the very people that would become the
epitome of whiteness..the Germans
whom he really really didn't like, other suspect groups like the Spanish, Italians, Greeks, Jews of all
types and even the Irish..however in the American context they overtime could join whiteness ( not if you are from latin America ), runners up to join
whiteness are Iranians aka Persians as the original Aryan, but they are often too melaninated to make the cut add to the fact that they dresses
funny and want to blow you up, Turks?? never!!
How about the ppl who put the Cauc in Caucasian, there one would have to go to Johann Friedrich Blumenbach for naming ppl with a certain look as
Caucasians, you know Head, Shoulders, Knees & Toes, who made the classifications all of us have to live with.
But it was these ppl who were mostly exploited before slavery became a mostly Black thing especially in the west, the Caucaus was one big slave mart,
eastern potentates filled their Harems with them, the males were used as elite shock troops, as far away as medieval Mali and Kenam Bornu in
I touched on this matter in a thread that didn't get much love.
As for non whites oppressing Whites..meaning what most of us reading this generally think of as white, well that would largely depend on
proximity,timing and opportunity, hence the Moors largely seen as Blacks and Browns spent a lot of time in Europe ,especially southern Europe for
700yrs, now did they consciously believed there were oppressing white ppl, hard to tell, they did believe like all oppressors everywhere that they
were doing the oppressees a favor by invading them and showering them with the benefits of civilization, now did the oppressees thought they were
being oppressed by a dark race of men, well kinda , if you go by some of their harsh quotes and art works at the time, but not all the time, as there
were good blacks, who were Christians and could possibly help them.
