    Discrimination is real and it's unjust. Your refusal or inability to recognize the damage it does is irrelevant.

    Demonstrate to me that you see yourself as a member of a system that favors whiteness and I'll do that.

    No one needs demonstrate anything to you. It's you making illogical claims which needs some evidence.

    Perhaps many Asians would disagree.

    It is amazing, to me, that Asians are rarely included (separately) in racial/ethnic economic data but do show up occasionally (separately) in educational or immigration data.
