Funny how they can see themselves as the victim but not that they benefit from the system. Would y’all agree with the premise (Asians have it harder than white people)? If so, have you noticed this white defensiveness in your life?

Any thoughts on the best certifications to get in order to help move forward? I have considered the CCP from World at Work, but it’s fairly pricey to get by the time you wrap up everything.

I was hoping to get some thoughts on this from others? Thanks
