In fact that same senario has been repeated countless times before and since, by immigrants to America. In turn the Jews, the Irish, the Germans etc. etc. were all discriminated against and managed to succeed through sheer determination. Japanese Americans were interned and despised during WWII and yet, with little in the way of recognition or compensation they are the most sucessful minority group in this country with the highest per capita income. Sort of blows out the water the theory that the system is rigged to reward only white Christians. Maybe the correct conclusion is that the system is rigged to reward Asians disproportionately. Maybe we should look into that.
Or, better yet, maybe we should conclude that the system is "rigged" to reward hard work, intelligence, innovation, foresight, risk management, family planning. But lets not delve too deeply into those matters at the risk of appearing to be insensitive and possibly racially divisive.
