Direct democracy would still oppress the minority.

The will of the majority is rarely the will of the most marginalized.

Do-ocracy is probably best, but small-scale, distributed direct democracy is good enough for when do-ocracy isn't feasible.
It isn't the best, for sure... but it's better than bourgeouise democracy. Both end up with oppressed minorities (perhaps less so with direct), but one is surely better than the other.
