New Proof of Discrimination Against AsAm Students

New & Powerful Proof of Discrimination Against AsAms
   The following diagram is about ACCEPTANCE rates.  Students of very similar performance, shown in 3 different combinations of MCAT & GPA, experience very different acceptance rates.  Asian applicants have the lowest acceptance rates in all 3 cases, consistently lower than even those of their white peers.  
   To achieve diversity is to let Hispanic & black peers have an advantage. 80-20 is for that.  However, why do Asian applicants have to yield to white peers?  For minorities like Asians to be forced to yield to white peers is the RESERVE of Affirmative Action.  The extreme abuse of affirmative Action is proof possible that AsAms are being DISCRIMINATED!
   See below for a bar chart released by the American Enterprise Institute, based on a table released by the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) .
Asian Am. parents often proudly talk about how they are willing to sacrifice for their children's education.  Do they?   So many of them don't even dare to speak up against the open discrimination against their children, much less organizing to fight against the discrimination in college admissions.   

    Too many AsAms are too timid.  Look at 80-20, we have always stuck our necks out to achieve justice and equal opportunity for all.  We are NOT in trouble at all.   Wake up, AsAms.  The bar chart shows the the discrimination against our educational opportunity has EXTENDED to GRADUATE SCHOOLS.  Step up and be counted!

Texas to stop "race preference" admissions.   Click here to hear a powerful 2 :28 minute video message by Blum and a young AsAm lawyer, Cory Liu

     If you had followed Mr. Blum's lawsuits closely, you would have noticed that his lawsuits are increasingly focused on the discrimination against AsAm students.       

     Shame on our financially well-off community, which sat by and let Blum fight for us.  Our rich individuals, who gave tens to hundreds of millions of dollars to Harvard for naming a building after themselves, should particularly feel this shame.

   80-20 EF is doing its best to assist Blum.  80-20 EF has increased its annual contribution to SFFA from $5,000/yr to  $10,000/yr. and strived to recruit members for SFFA.   Let's all try to do more.

 Students who have recently been rejected by UT are urged to contact Blum and Liu via  http://www.studentsforfairadmission.org.

      Are you a parent of students who belong to ECAASU (East Coast Asian American Student Union)?  That organization supports "race-preference" admissions.  Please forward this email to them.  Call to discuss with them the difference between supporting diversity versus giving white peers advantages over AsAm students.  Even the editorial board of Harvard's student paper, Crimsonquestioned why AsAm applicants need to yield 140 SAT points to white peers in order to gain equal access to elite colleges. 
    Some of the ECASSU members will be applying for medical schools.  Tell them to wake up, they will be discriminated against in their application to Graduate schools.

    Click on http://www.80-20ef.org/youth.php to see
a) how to apply, 
b) how much time and work will meet the minimum standard to get a certificate, and 
c) the different levels of awards.  The top award is a certificate plus a cash award of $500, which could be converted to a prestigious scholarship, if one wishes.
                              Apply promptly
    Apply ASAP.   We anticipate this to be a very popular program, because it is such an obvious win-win.  The number of applicants may soon exceed our ability to handle it.

Political myths that hurt AsAms deeply (ii)

Here Is A Win-Win Solution
    

80-20's public WeChat account is:  8020ef.  Please scan our QR code, shown below, & on 80-20 EF's WeChat site. For a Chinese version of this e-newsletter, click  https://mp.weixin.qq.com/s/0jarX2d3eOhOoJd-6ZTEWA           
Display a flag to help celebrate July 4th.  The U.S. is not perfect.  But on that day, I'll be counting my blessings. 
A Political Reality You Need to know 
     
     AsAm elected politicians are not willing to stand up for us because, not having an Asian majority in their respective election districts, they fear losing re-election.   Click here to read more details.

80-20 must answer these 2 Questions Satisfactorily & Did
Q1) Why doesn't Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii help us, since a majority of her voters are AsAms?
    It is the aftermath of INTERNMENT in WWII.   In WWII, Japanese Ams in the continental U.S.A. were interned, but incredibly those in Hawaii were not!  Militarily, you'd think that it should be the other way around, right?  What caused that? An ugly blend of racism and greed. Hawaii's economy would have collapsed if Japanese Americans on the islands were interned. But interning Japanese Ams on the mainland provided benefits to a lot of the neighbors of the interned Japanese Ams, who then took over their properties.
    As a result, AsAms in Hawaii have been induced to think that they would be better off NOT associating with AsAms on the mainland.  Isn't that a shame? 
Q2) Why don't Elaine Chao and Nikki Haley, who are cabinet officials and who don't face elections, help us?
     Cabinet officials serve at the pleasure of the president. If a cabinet official acts out of line and start working on projects of his/her own interest, he/she can be fired the next day.  
  Don't be discouraged.  There is a winning solution.  :-)
    Just think!  Will AsAm elected and appointed officials make their share of effort to help AsAms achieve equal opportunity, IF there is an AsAm PAC that is 1/3 as powerful as AIPAC?   
    Of course they will, because those officials are good human beings like us.  ONCE they think they are protected by a powerful PAC, they'll do the right things. Additionally, they also know that a politically savvy PAC will go punish them, if they don't do their minimum share.
     So roll up your sleeves and dig deeply into your pocket to help build a powerful AsAm PAC.  AIPAC's 2014 budget is $77 million!  80-20 PAC's is $0.1 million.  THINK!
     Politics impacts you deeply.  You and you children don't have equal opportunity because AsAms are politically weak. You NEED political knowledge, and you need to sacrifice a little, to build up our political clout.

Political myths that hurt AsAms deeply

Help destroy these myths.   Forward it to friends.

If WE are to win equal opportunity in 
(1) our work places for ourselves and
(2) college admissions for our children,
then the following political myths must be destroyed.

Myth 1:  To get involved in politics is to run for an office, work one's way up until one has enough clout to win equal opportunity for his/her children and all other AsAms.
Facts:    Have Elaine Chao, Ed Lee, Mazie Hirono, Tammy Duckworth, Kamala Harris, Nikki Haley, and Judy Chu ever done anything for AsAms in those 2 areas?   They are as high up as they can get.   

Myth 2:  These elected AsAm officials are at least our best hope.  
Facts:    In the U.S., one can organize/join political action committees, PACs, which can be so much more powerful than elected politicians, especially for a small minority.  For example, AIPAC is the reason why the Jewish Am community, with a population of 6 million, can be politically so powerful.

  Explain!  All of the above sounds unbelievable

     The above are the result of 3 circumstances:

1.  A majority of the voters in the election districts of the above named officials  are NOT AsAmsexcept for Sen. Mazie Hirono of Hawaii. 
2.  The non-AsAm voters dislike their AsAm official working for AsAms
3.  AsAm elected officials are human beings who wish to avoid tough re-elections.

   In contrast, 80-20 PAC doesn't face a re-election from the general population.  Quite to the contrary, PAC's officials only fear NOT working hard enough for AsAms causing donations to drop &/or being voted out by PAC members. The incentives for PAC officials and AsAm elected officials are in diametrically opposed directions.

    Q 1:  How about Sen. Mazie Hirono, the majority of her voters are AsAms?
    Q 2:  How about Elaine Chao and Nikki Haley who are cabinet officials who don't face elections?   To keep this article short, I'll answer these questions and destroy other myths next week.

Readers' Reaction to this Liar

How Our Community Has Responded
   Our readers wrote in to praise 80-20 for calling out David Tian Wang (王湉, 別名天天), who intentionally misled our community.  At least 3 of the 13 who wrote in have heard Tian Tian's misleading statement, before 80-20 exposed his lies.   Big lies spread fast.  So we are NOT making a mountain out of a molehill.
    Unbelievably, Tian Tian may still be lying on WeChat, if a reader reported his statements correctly.  See item 13 in this e-newsletter.   See also the relevant law, appended at the very end.

   This guy not only gave a black eye to Chinese American, but also lend credence to ONE of the Trump's battle cries, i.e., FAKE and Illegal Voters. Should 80-20 take further action to name this person and expose him in a very public way, public at least in the sense for all the Asian Community to see?  This is because in his chats, he was flouting the law and being blatant about it.   The irony was that he even admonished his chat followers "to know the law so not be afraid of it . . . "
By the way, my suggestion should not be construed as a support to Trump, regardless to Parties or politics.   While I don't know if this were wide spread in OTHER minority communities, especially of those not legal voters, but I feel that even ONE among us is shameful, and should make him drink his own koolaids, as the saying goes.   Thank you for listening to my rant, not usually my habit.

We encourage them to get engaged first, they like media attention, give them, they need fans, give them but sooner or later they will realize all we need is truth and fact to build long term relationship and power.  The only thought I can provide for this Tian Tian is to give him an option in public and allow him to do some other good things.

Dear Dr. Woo:  I forwarded this message to one of a wechat groups I'm in. Surprisingly, without my awareness, David Tian Wang is in the same group. He is not happy about the information and pointed to me that some of the facts are not correct:
      * He is not US citizen
      * He did not officially vote; but he casted a ballot ("投废票",as he said )
If you like, I would like you two connected and get the facts cleared.
My answer to Alan: "I am surprised that he is only unhappy. He should be ashamed. However, as I said we are willing to work with him still if he is willing to apologize to our community for intentionally misleading it." 

If indeed he cast a ballot, then he is in deep trouble. See the relevant law (18 U.S. Code § 611 - Voting by aliens) shown at the end.

This excerpt shows the lies that were 
made:



President and a volunteer for the past 18 years

 The relevant law regarding David Tian Wang's claim:
  1. U.S. Code ' Title 18 ' Part I ' Chapter 29 ' § 611
18 U.S. Code § 611 - Voting by aliens

(a) It shall be unlawful for any alien to vote in any election held solely or in part for the purpose of electing a candidate for the office of President, Vice President, Presidential elector, Member of the Senate, Member of the House of Representatives, Delegate from the District of Columbia, or Resident Commissioner, unless-
  (1) the election is held partly for some other purpose; [CA doesn't permit provision (a) (1) during a federal election.  Hence, this section is NOT applicable to David Tian Wang.  Note added by S. B. Woo on 6/16/2017.]
  (2) aliens are authorized to vote for such other purpose under a State constitution or statute or a local ordinance; and
  (3)voting for such other purpose is conducted independently of voting for a candidate for such Federal offices, in such a manner that an alien has the opportunity to vote for such other purpose, but not an opportunity to vote for a candidate for any one or more of such Federal offices.
(b) Any person who violates this section shall be fined under this title, imprisoned not more than one year, or both.  (Emphasis added.)
(c)Subsection (a) does not apply to an alien if-
   (1) each natural parent of the alien (or, in the case of an adopted alien, each  
    adoptive parent of the alien) is or was a citizen (whether by birth or naturalization);
   (2) the alien permanently resided in the United States prior to attaining the age of 16; and
   (3) the alien reasonably believed at the time of voting in violation of such subsection that he or she was a citizen of the United States.
