But yeah, Marxism is also called conflict theory. It is premised on the idea that there is irreconcilable conflict between the working class and the owning class, and that this tension will produce a communist revolution... as it arguably did in the Eastern countries 100 years ago.
Conditions in the 20th century moderated this class conflict and prevented a revolution. So the basic premise was reformulated based on identities. The old capitalist oppressors were the "bourgeoisie," and the oppressed were the "proletariat." In the reformulation, white men were defines as the global capitalist oppressor class. And in order to generate sufficient numbers for worldwide revolution, EVERYONE ELSE was defined as the oppressed class.
So if you fit into the oppressor category, you are SUPPOSED to feel excluded, and will be marginalized, and ultimately gotten rid of. It is exactly the same logic that propelled the revolutions in Russia and China and Cambodia... but white guys are the devil this time.
