How do "white privilege" believers reconcile the career success and lack of incarceration among East Asians in the West?

Whites just hate coloured people, and try to keep them down and jail them. Yet they're letting East Asians outperform them in the rat race, and putting far more of THEMSELVES in jail than East Asians.

Looking forward to the cognitive dissonance and bizarre rationalisations. Cheers!


@Joshua - Maybe blacks are more prone to crime (pretty much an inarguable fact at this point) and recidivism is why they get harsher sentences for minor offences. Jim Crow is long gone and slavery is ancient history. Again, Asians just don't seem to be affected by the "white privilege" that so hampers blacks.

    The "White Privilege" notion is an escape route for those unwilling to face reality. Culture is huge predictor in the achievement/success of the individual. White people only have white privilege in relation to black people. There is no advantage over other whites or Asians or any culture save African. As a culture, black people act on emotion and base instincts far more often that other cultures and it is this trait that holds them back. When you can direct your behavior to be honest, responsible, and have self-control, you will benefit in life. When your behavior succumbs to your base instincts which results in dishonesty, irresponsibility, sloth, drug/alcohol abuse, emotional outbursts, etc. you will fare worse in life. The reality is a cultural issue that many people do not want to admit exists.

    The government didn’t spend 250 years holding this group of people in slavery, the following 100 years of Jim Crow and the last 40 years of mass incarceration by specifically targeting black communities and giving decade to life sentences for Petty drug crimes

      That means the term white privilege is a misnomer.
