And here's the thing: while nobody (aside from, possibly, a vanishingly small number of nutjobs with zero influence on society) has made the claim you've attributed to them, there are plenty of people who have made different claims in support of the rationale that Asian immigrants to the United States are as a cohort qualitatively different from the descendants of African slaves, or from Latinx immigrants, and therefore should be treated differently as a cohort by public policy.

But those claims are a lot more subtle, and require a lot more knowledge and thinking to rebut. I submit that you have, consciously or unconsciously, substituted the ridiculous "success is supposed to be impossible for anyone that is not white in America's white supremacist culture" because that stupid claim is instantly rebutted; and by attributing it to the people you disagree with, you can have the satisfaction of beating them in an argument.
