I’m tired of hearing what white people have to say about racism, what men have to say about feminism & misogyny. I’m tired of hearing what skinny people have to say about body positivity & what straight people have to say about LGBTQ rights. Forgive me, but I’ve had enough of hearing what the oppressors have to say about oppression.

You mean that you’re tired of hearing what people who happen to share a relatively similar ethnic back round with oppressors have to say?

No, she means she is tired of hearing what oppressors have to say about oppression. Whether or not you actively engage in systems of power, you are still a beneficiary of said structures due to your race, gender, sexuality, etc., being that of the dominant, oppressive group - and thus (quite implicitly) you’re aiding in the oppression of others. 

Or as the old saying goes:  ”If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
