Anyone who supports the left-wing African-American narrative of modern oppression (including white left-wingers) in such a way as to oppress the Vannoken tribe. This includes voting for government programs like "Affirmative Action," which the Vannokens view as taxation without representation, because if the Vannokens don't pay for government programs they don't need, the government will initiate force on African-Americans' behalf to oppress the Vannokens by proxy. Meanwhile, there was never any proper historical election process for the minority of the minority ethnic groups (such as but not limited to the Vannokens), while the Vannoken right to personhood is protected by the international law of self-determinism.
