RunningTaipei - ABCs and other Asian Americans have high legal enfranchisement but low social enfranchisement in the US. My sense is that White Westerners in Taiwan have low legal enfranchisement but comparatively better social enfranchisement, but that is just my 3rd party view. Without social enfranchisement, legal enfranchisement can be taken away or rendered meaningless. Without legal enfranchisement, social enfranchisement alone seems petty.
Here is a quick list of the ABC and broader Asian American experience with discrimination in the US, and to be intellectually honest I've included some info which points to Asian American privilege as well:
Employment - Higher unemployment rates, partially attributable to discrimination.
Glass ceiling - Asian Americans are well represented in technical and professional positions but are underrepresented in management positions.

Wage/income - Asians exceeded whites in 2016 (first time ever in more than 160 years of Asian American history) but note that demographics (Asians tend to have higher degree attainment and live in expensive/high wage coastal urban areas) seem to account for the difference.
College admissions - Asian Americans need to have higher SAT scores than Whites to get into private universities.

Violence - Hate crimes against Asian Americans on the rise.
Asian American media/entertainment representation and discrimination
This is just the contemporary and recent stuff. If you want to go into modern history (older than 20 years but in the lifetime of living Americans) we have the JA internment, discriminatory immigration and naturalization laws, Vincent Chin and Jim Loo, and the LAPD abandonment of Koreatown during the 92 LA Riots. More historical than that, you can add the Chinese Exclusion Act, educational segregation, lynchings, bans on property ownership, interracial marriage laws and residential segregation.
On a more individual basis, I have personally experienced - bottles and cans being thrown at me by people yelling "gooks go home", someone breaking into my parents place trashing the house and scrawling "chinks get out" on the walls, a gas station attendant who shut off the pumps and said "f***ing foreigners", a teacher who told me to take the TOEFL even though I was an A student in AP English.
I think I have a great life in the US and wouldn't trade it for anything else (sorry, Taiwan). I don't view my life as some struggle against the Man either. I am conscious that others here have more privilege in many contexts, but I too have amazing if lesser privilege in a country that, for all its faults, is still an incredible place. And I am proud that like all Americans, Asian Americans have contributed to our national development - Manzanar and Vincent Chin are nasty parts of our history but the tracks of the Trans Pacific Railroad and the hallowed graves of the venerated 442nd JA soldiers show our story at its best.
