The problem with the practice is that it pits ethnic minority groups, which could otherwise be allies, against each other.
And it’s always a Brown face that’s not too dark, not too light, so they can say they are representing ethnic minority groups,” Doe told CNN.
She said that there was an issue in pooling all ethnic minorities under terms like BAME (Black, Asian and minority ethnic) and POC (People of Color).
She laments the way Indians have been able to find social mobility but don’t often help elevate other minority groups in the same way.
But there are still comparisons being made between ethnic minority groups in the country with no context at all.
