Oppressed-A-Thon--An unintentionally amusing pastime, in which flummoxed pundits unable to make heads or tails out of actual human beings, engage in a dubious contest to prove that said human beings' respective group is more doomed, victimized, and otherwise shat-upon than all other doomed, victimized and presumably shat-upon groups.
