Just to clarify- My point is that it’s very hard to take potential cases of discrimination from a personal incident and then claim that it is a sufficient bases in which to justify a belief in widespread systematic discrimination. If this were true my story alone would prove systematic discrimination against those of European descent. When I say I don’t discount stories of discrimination I’m saying they may very well be stories of discrimination, but they don’t always necessarily have to be for the purpose of ethnicity, and even if they are which is possible, they don’t necessarily prove systematic wise spread discrimination.
