I think it's not. What you are saying is that you care equally and
sympathize with both the oppressor and the victim on a given situation.

Caring more about people who are victims of oppression doesn't mean you
want to put them in the place of their oppressors. So, sure these type
of initiative focus on specific groups. That doesn't imply hate or any
other feeling for everyone else.
