Sangeetha has an important message for her allies on how they can be good ones:
Remember, you are not an ally until you give the oppressed free stuff.
Because the quickest way to build true respect for and give dignity to someone else is to simply transfer status and resources to them.
If you haven’t noticed, Talon was being sarcastic.
The anticompetitive r-selected mindsets of progressives mean they always gravitate towards ideologies that always involve the redistribution of resources, progressives hate K-selected competition and an inequality of outcomes regardless of the cause because competition of any sorts is greatly distressing to the r-selected mindset of the rabbit person.
The history of giving away stuff to “help” an “oppressed” group is rife with how these attempts rarely built true respect and dignity among less-privileged groups, and there is a good reason for this- as long as you are always demanding for and getting handouts you can’t shake the impression that you only got where you are because of the
self-flagellation kindness of your “allies”.
This is why affirmative action often fails- you can change the distribution of resources but the problem remains if the inequality of outcomes is due to factors other than racism (which is mostly the case in Singapore), all you’ve done is to “equalise” outcomes via a massive pumping operation based on social demands.
The end result is never permanent, you can only gain true respect and dignity by earning it and showing your K-selected value in competition.
But being a rabbit person, Sangeetha will never get it.
