To just negate discrimination makes it even stronger.
That's why to fight the (existing) discrimination against Non-WASP[1] in
favour of WASP. it is necessary to name discrimination.

Stating that there is no difference just hides the social distinctions
which are actually in place and working. This leads to neglecting those
who are discriminated.

[1] Just as example: White Anglo-Saxon Protestants
