I'd be a lot more convinced of your arguments golgi if it weren't for the treatment of Native Americans. White settlers didn't respect property rights when they invaded the land and displaced them all on the Trail of Tears and the like. Neither can even the valid instances of contract law be considered, because a lot of the contracts whites used to purchase land from Native Americans was fraudulent.

Why do you call him a second generation Japanese rather than a second generation American? This is the nasty shit he is probably referring to when he talks about how white people treat Asians in the US. Never as a fellow American. For some reason, you do not hear "second generation British" in the US. How come?
Still does not mean he has no right to ask that the country improve in its treatment of him.
Return to a country he has never seen and possibly never been to? A country of which he is not a citizen? Why do you call it returning? A country whose language he does not speak? When he goes there, he will need a visa, he will be treated as a foreigner, and then he will be told to return to ...America. Again, this is precisely the crap Asian Americans have to hear in the USA. Go back...where?
He is still covered by 1st Amendment and can speak his mind. Whether his platform is " true" or not is open to opinion.
You won't and it is your right. The US gov't will call them Asian. Whose opinion has more weight? Yours or that of the US gov't, its censuses and official documents? As long as he is on the US soil, he is Asian according to US laws and official point of view.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!
