In the US and Canada, the “Black” streaming, do the same with the Hispanics or Asians …..
The problem is that the Hispanics are over 33% of the group in the US. Ex Chancellor Helmut Schmidt once told me that the “Hispanics” are very different from the white or black fishing gear. Hispanics have very different goals, so they are not politically active, because it is not “their war”. The Asians see it for themselves.
In Canada it is injured because the neighbor is not heard. Canada itself still sees itself in the “genocide” so Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. But Canada is better in public relations and it is a small country. In just over 150 years of history, Canada has had several colonies on a global scale. The Indians will still get bad. Canada is 92% owned by Queen Elizabeth II of England, not the UK.

This paper aims to contribute toward coalition building by showing
that, even if we try to build coalition around what might look like
our most obvious common concern – reducing racism – the dominant
discourse of racial politics in the United States inhibits an
understanding of how racism operates vis-à-vis Latino/as and Asian
Americans, and thus proves more of an obstacle to coalition building
than an aid. The black/white paradigm, which operates to govern racial
classifications and racial politics in the U.S., takes race in the
U.S. to consist of only two racial groups, Black and White, with
others understood in relation to one of these categories. I summarize
and discuss the strongest criticisms of the paradigm and then develop
two further arguments. Together these arguments show that continuing
to theorize race in the U.S. as operating exclusively through the
black/white paradigm is actually disadvantageous for all people of
color in the U.S., and in many respects for whites as well (or at
least for white union households and the white poor).
