I think I formulated it poorly then. "White people" are split into different groups, most of them not being political subjects. PoC are always the object. They are used as soldiers by some "white" people against other "white people". In the same way as for example Jews were used in the Russian revolution. Jews appeared in the Russian Empire after Poland's secessions, it was a highly marginalized poor and oppressed group. I of course as a human can't not to emphatize and consider the law in this part too harsh. Still it doesn't change the fact that the groups who defended and agitated for Jews were also the groups who consequently opposed and sabotaged any attempt to improve their state. Because they needed them to be marginalized, they needed them to be radical. So when the revolution properly started there were indeed many Jewish revolutionaries who committed some severe crimes and then got torture, humiliation and death as their reward in '37. While their feats guaranteed Antisemitic mood in Russia for much longer than it would preserve naturally. Triple cheating: fight for your enemy, die by your enemy, be punished for your enemy's deeds.
And that's what will happen with PoCs too. In this case I am just calling to see where wind blows from and blame the hand, not the gun.
