Well we could start with the founding fathers of American who were disgruntled oligarchs from western Europe. Slave owners and slave traders who wrote the constitution of
America. They didn't care what they left behind as long as they were rulers of there new
kingdom created on the genocide of the native Americans. You can see where that
would lead.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

I guess, I understand where your going on this.
Maybe mine is "discrimination" rather racism.
Eith ...

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?

After thinking about this...
I must conclude it WAS racism, because the reason for my not being hired was because of "race".
That in my mind is "racism".
You do not have to hate to be racist.
It is treating others different, because of race.

("White monkey", I hear the reference all the time)
