When I first read it, I thought it might be satire attacking bigotry, but the few secondary sources that reference it do not give any clue that it is.
Perhaps they mistook heavily veiled satire as A Modest Proposal?

Regardless, the idea that a minority or minority rights advocate should/must support equality for all minorities is largely a recent concept still not universally embraced among liberals or minorities.
