    Must be kind of inconvenient when you're complaining about racism to be reminded that Asians easily outperform whites when it comes to things like income and education.
    Out of the top 25 billionaires in the world, 2 are asian. Sounds like they are superior in regards to income and education

      I'm afraid the jurisdiction of U.S courts generally don't extend beyond our territorial borders.

        Please put some evidence forward that asians "outperform" whites in education rather than continuing to make generalizations. And I don't really care about high school and the SAT; any idiot can do well in high school. Everyone knows that not all high schools are equally as challenging academically. How about some college undergrad, grad, and even doctorate stats? As far as asians outperforming whites in work, what the hell does that even mean?

          I provided it for you above.

          I can find many many more if you like.

          If you dont' care about high school and SAT's then what other standard are you looking for? Asians outperfom all other ethnic groups at all levels of education and are over represented in all major higher education centers, including the most pretigious Ivy League Schools.

          Why all of a sudded it's racist to point out facts, is beyond me.

            They're more likely to be college graduates, and they have a higher average income.

              Sorry, I thought you understood my point: Racism is racism (no need to the qualifier "reverse" when describing it here).

                    Ah, I misunderstood you. By definition it is reverse discrimination, however.

                      That's funny, I didn't see any evidence in what you provided. And there you go making more claims without any evidence.

                        Wow, you used wikipedia as a source. Are you serious? No need to even debate with you on this subject any longer.

                          Then you are just blind and refuse to acknowledge it. Do your own research and enlighten yourself. Obviously anything someone else provides won't be good enough for you.

                          I will provide one more and be done with you.

                            I'm not saying your wrong, but your evidence is very weak. I don't know if you went to college and if you did, where you went. That wouldn't fly where I went to school. First of all, for the sake of argument, one would need to define what "outperform" even means. I don't need to look it up because I'm not the one making the claim, which is all that it is so far, a claim.

                              Wikipedia is about as good a source of accurate information as Britannica, the venerable standard-bearer of facts about the world around us, according to a study published this week in the journal Nature.

                              For its study, Nature chose articles from both sites in a wide range of topics and sent them to what it called "relevant" field experts for peer review. The experts then compared the competing articles--one from each site on a given topic--side by side, but were not told which article came from which site. Nature got back 42 usable reviews from its field of experts.
                              In the end, the journal found just eight serious errors, such as general misunderstandings of vital concepts, in the articles. Of those, four came from each site. They did, however, discover a series of factual errors, omissions or misleading statements. All told, Wikipedia had 162 such problems, while Britannica had 123.
