I guess, I understand where your going on this.
Maybe mine is "discrimination" rather racism.
If a person defines a group of people based on their race, ethnicity, color, religion, language, culture as objects of hate, then that is RACISM because the victims are being targeted based on their group characteristics. In your case, Asian-Americans are not being targeted as objects of hate by these English schools. They didn't hire you not because they don't like you but because they need a "white monkey" to sell bananas. (I am just kidding here!)
Now having said that, I think Chinese citizens have strong anti-Japanese sentiments that would qualify as RACISM because the Japanese are treated as objects of hate based on their race, ethnicity, language, culture, and other group characteristics. If you know how the Chinese treat the Japanese, then how you were treated does not really qualify as RACISM but more of DISCRIMINATION which can happen on account of classism, elitism, nepotism, localism, nativism, nationalism, etc.
If I apply for membership in a country club and get rejected because:
1. I am not a millionaire, that's classism;
2. I am not an Ivy League alumni, that's elitism;
3. I am not a relative of the officers and directors, that's nepotism;
4. I am not from the local community, that's localism;
5. I am not native-born in the country, that's nativism;
6. I am not a national of the country, that's nationalism.
You get the picture?
