When Millionaires are silent during a crisis and not donate a single penny to the needy, how dare you ask those who struggle for their daily bread to donate for the needy?
When the privileged actively or passively enabled casteism, institutionalized discrimination in every way possible, rendering Dalits powerless, How dare you ask Dalits to fight Everyone's battles when you can merely reap benefits from their struggle,
sitting in your air-conditioned chambers, publishing papers on 'subaltern' studies and eventually dismiss the very voice and labor you exploited for your privilege?

Yes. It is a vicious cycle, happening for over ages.
Best example, look at savarna women, benefitted from Hindu Code Bill by Ambedkar, gaining access to education and property, gaining the right to dissent and so on, and eventually dismiss and abuse Ambedkar having absolutely all the ideas that a Dalit got them their rights.
They are not ignorant without a choice. They choose not to learn that part of history very consciously.

Enough with your Geeli Pucchis.
It's time Dalits stay true and brutally honest to their cause, their people and their movement rather than speaking pseudo-inclusivity aka savarna inclusivity which means inclusivity among all castes and religions, except dalits;
inter-caste weddings and other dramas among them all, except Dalits. No matter what you do, They will Never accept you as one of them, especially if you're not confused or not ashamed of your history (your counter cultural past where you resisted brahmanical patriarchy).
You will never be one of them, because they dont want You, a dalit. Even if you are the President of this caste ridden country, temples be 'purified' once you step out of them structures built brick by brick by exploiting your foreparents.
That aversion against dalits of them Shows on Every single fucking action of them, the privileged, irrespective of their religious identity or economic status.
They need your labour, your body, your service, your manpower, Even your culture if they want to write or research on it and get some savarna awards, but they definitely don't want your mind, your assertiveness, your self respect and Your identity.
Remember this all the time.
When you practice their culture, built by banishing the Dalits off their own lands, constructed by oppressing dalit labour, They Laugh at you. You are a clown to them, dancing to their music in a clumsy glittering costume they put you in.
You are nothing more than that when you practice what they preach exclusively for you thinking they will accept you someday. They won't.

Remember who you are. Know who your people are. Stay true and honest to that and that alone.

I've been repeating this over and over again. I have no problem in telling this again now.

I don't speak for Everyone. I am a Dalit. I speak for my People and My people alone. Welfare and Rights of My people is more important than anyone else's for me.
Centuries of organized oppression gave leverage to Non-dalits in various ways, one of which is having representative voice, a leader who enables their casteist fetish to oppress Dalits. Despite all those, expecting Dalits to speak for EVERYONE is savarna greed.
It's not My work to succumb for that, to crave for Their Validation. I am with Dalits, with My people. I am true and honest to the core to them. If that sounds like self exclusion or isolating Dalits, question who Put us here in the first place. Don't question Us.
