If you look at the futures, faster aggressive HFT traders take the liquidity aggressively which causes passive liquidity providers to put out less liquidity which advantages the faster traders even more at expense of retail traders.

What I usually see is that the percentage of LFT-aggress-HFT-passive trades increases in very directional environments, so HFT participants on aggregate actually become more passive and provide more liquidity, which benefits retail traders.
