Sorry, I think the way you think about this issue is incredibly racist. You paint this picture of the “White man” like there was some grand scheme planned for Asian Americans, but truth is, commercial success was aimed at survival and personal wealth, not some complicity to serve the “White man”. They were the main customer base in this country, how could you expect it to be any different?
Stop blaming our community’s choices on the “White man”. If you swapped that word with Jews you can more easily see how racist that is.
