    You drew an erroneous conclusion from the quote. Confirmation bias.

    As far as most whites not expecting Asians to be "model minorities", I find that claim suspect considering that white people came up with the term and continue to perpetuate it in every realm of society. I also find it suspect given the amount of Asian-Americans and Asian immigrants who attest to having that stereotyped invoked around them.

    What would you call a US racial/ethnic minority group that leads the list for household income? After all, white folks are all immigrants to the US too. So far, it seems that you have introduced and defended the term "model minority" not I. I simply stated that whites are not the top earning immigrant group in the US. - that title goes to the Asian Americans, at present. You were the one that decided that "most" whites benefit from white privilege even though more whites than blacks are poor in the US.

    If you'll think about it, how is that any different from someone who really likes working out, and wishes others would do the same and encourages them to do so. Does he also have control issues, then? Of course not.

    It's a simple question - how would you change things in order to minimize white racism in America? You've made your judgments about me and my way of thinking, so I'd honestly like to hear your answer...and if you prove me wrong on something, I'll honestly thank you (and that's another one of the expectations I hold for myself, to always thank those who prove me wrong, no matter how much I don't like it).

    All of which are commendable, but show that their high household income is not the result of success but instead the result of overcrowding.

    Perhaps you can cite this alleged "overcrowdng" usng census data, but I seriously doubt it. From what I was able to find about 28% live with at least two generations.

    They are more likely than the general public to live in multi-generational family households. Some 28% live with at least two adult generations under the same roof, twice the share of whites and slightly more than the share of blacks and Hispanics who live in such households. U.S. Asians also have a strong sense of filial respect; about two-thirds say parents should have a lot or some influence in choosing one’s profession (66%) and spouse (61%).

    EDIT: The average Asian household size (now 4.00 people) was smaller than the average hispanic househld size but is now slightly larger.

    My use of the word "overcrowding" was facetious, but the point is, more adult workers in a house means more household income. Greater household income is the result of larger households and not the result of individuals members of the household earning more

    Imagine that.

    This sounds familiar with old people who haven't evolved into the modern day.

    Overcrowding leads to success? It's amazing no one thought of that before!
