                            We Seek Justice!  
    We Present Forensic Evidence Showing Harvard's          Discrimination Against Asian-American Students.
         We present the following 6 pieces of evidence for your consideration:


[A] The Simulated Characteristics of Students Applying to Harvard:

       The following simulated distribution curves represent Harvard applicants, broken down by race. The x-axis is total SAT scores, having a maximum of 2400 points.  The y-axis is the counts of Harvard applicants in 2015. 
 

        For details of how the curves are constructed, please click here. To
help viewers gain a quick understanding of the curves, please note that


(1) the height of each distribution is primarily based on data released by                    Harvard regarding the percentages of applicants broken down by race.
(2) the mean SAT score of each race is based on data released by the  
      Dept. of Education for all students who took SAT exams in 2015.  It is 
      NOT the mean SAT score of Harvard applicants, which is expected to 
      be higher.  In other words if Harvard's admissions data were available, 
      the center of each curve would move towards to the right somewhat. 
      However, the high-score-end of the tail of each distribution will NOT 
      move at all! 
(3) the racial characteristics of the distributions including the width of 
      one standard deviation are based on information released by
      Brookings Institute, which in turn used data released by the College 
      Board.

       The vertical line drawn above the SAT point of 1850 is arbitrarily chosen.   Most colleges have such a vague line in mind in admitting student.  It is both for the benefit of the admitted students who desire to graduate in 4 years, and that of the professors who would find a class of huge disparity in academic preparation very difficult to teach.  The areas under the curves to the right of the cut-off line represent the total number of students admitted according to race.  

    Hence, if SAT scores were the only standard for admitting students, then more Asian students will be admitted than white peers, and very few Black and Hispanic peers would be admitted.  In reality, most colleges take into consideration such other factors as class ranking, letters of recommendation from applicant's high school counselors, extra curricular activities, legacy status, the reports from interviews done by alumni, and the strength of the common and specific composition accompanying a student's application.

    Note:  Soon the real applicant data from Harvard will be available to plot
these curves.  They will not be the perfect Gaussians but quite similar to the ones seen above.
      
[B] The % of students admitted by Harvard in 2015, broken down by race:
       In 2015, Harvard admitted
                 51.6% whites,
                 21% Asian-Americans,
                 13.3% Latinos,
                 12.1%  blacks, and
                 2% Native Americans or Native Hawaiians.
  

         The "% of students admitted broken down by race", shown above, seem in drastic contradiction to the scholastic achievement of its applicants shown n the 4 curves presented in section [A].

  
[C] The findings of Princeton Professors Espenshade and Radford:
        
In Table 3.5 on p 92 of their famous book, "No Longer Separate, Not Yet Equal"the following shocking fact was revealed:
                                   
                                Table 3.5 (emphasis added)
         Race Admission Preferences at Public & Private Institutions
                          Measured in ACT & SAT Points, Fall 1997
                 ----------------------------------------------------
                     Public Institutions          Private Institutions
                  ACT-Point Equivalents   SAT-Point Equivalents
                Item          (out of 36)               (out of 1600)
               -------------------------------------------------------------------
              Race
                (White)           --                                --
                Black             3.8                            310
                Hispanics      0.3                            130
                Asian            -3.4                           -140  
  

        Our readers may now begin to perceive how the rather contradictory
information under sections [A] and [B] could co-exist. It is because SAT points were taken away from the Asian-Am applicants, while points were added to black and Hispanic applicants.

  
[D] The findings of Ron Unz's book:


       On page 203 of Ron Unz' book, entitled The Myth of American Meritocracy, the following diagram was shown, using data released by the National Center for Education Statistics.

        The black dotted line shows that the number of college-aged Asian Americans has approximately doubled over a recent 20-year period. The red solid line indicating the % of AsAm students at the California Institute of Technology (CIT), whose admissions tracks that increase.  That is because CIT doesn't practice race-preference.


         In strong contrast, the Ivy League colleges converge to 16% +/- 3% Asian American students.
                                            
[E] Harvard's "Holistic Evaluation": 
     
           Harvard claims to practice "holistic evaluation."   Holistic is an ambiguous word unless it is defined.  However, most people can be induced to think that holistic evaluation must be fair.  In reality, Harvard's holistic evaluation is a charade to provide for it the leeway to race-balance as it sees fit.


        The fallacy of Harvard's holistic evaluation can be revealed qualitatively in 2 sentences.  Using holistic evaluation system, Harvard adds the most points to black applicants.   Does that imply that, holistically speaking, black applicants to Harvard are the best and most deserving, next the Hispanics, then the whites, and Asian-American applicants are the worst? 


         Quantitatively, the "White House Commission on Presidential Scholarsevaluates all high school graduates annually.  It evaluates students "on academic achievement, personal characteristics, leadership, service, other extracurricular activities, and an analysis of their essays."  It is about as holistic as it could be.   Yet, over the past 15 years, Asian Americans averaged 28% of the finalists, while Harvard accepted only about 18% of Asian American students over the same period.
                 

[F] Harvard's Emphasis on Diversity:
        
        If diversity were Harvard's only goal, it merely needed to add more SAT points to black and Hispanic applicants. It didn't need to take SAT points away from Asian American applicants. Harvard's holistic evaluation and its emphasis on diversity were simply camouflage for its real intention to limit the number of admitted Asian American students and to admit more of their white peers.
  
  In conclusion,Harvard is obviously engaged in race- 
  balancing.  It violates Title VI of  the Civil Rights 
  Act of 1964.

80-20 Ships Ammo to DOJ to investigate Harvard

Let's build up the pressure on Harvard

    On Nov. 29, 80-20 president S. B. Woo shipped ammo to Acting Assistant Attorney General John M. Gore for his investigation of Harvard.  If we want to win this crucial struggle for our youth, we must send good information to Mr. Gore so that he can be fairly certain that (1) Harvard is violating Title VI, and (2) there is enough evidence to convict Harvard. Excerpts from Woo's letter are shown below:


"Dear Acting Assistant Attorney General Gore:

     Thank you for your reply to me of Nov. 1, 2017. . .  we finally have a DOJ official who truly wants Justice to prevail.

      Please see 4 SIMULATED curves, appended herewith, showing the SAT scores of applicants to Harvard, broken down by race.   The curves easily explain why Harvard needed to add  540 and 370 SAT points, 

    
respectively to black and Hispanic students in order to achieve its pre-conceived idea of race balance.  More importantly, the two curves on the right side show why Harvard needs to take 140 SAT points away from Asian American applicants in order to place a quota on the number of Asian American students on Harvard's campus.

     Assuming that Harvard will eventually comply with your requests for information, you will be able to construct such 4 curves using REAL data from applicants They will resemble what you are seeing now, except for their peaks, which will shift much to the high-score end of the graph.  That is because only the best students apply to Harvard.  However, the tails on the high-score end will NOT shift at all.  The tails are already predetermined by the academic characteristics of each racial group.

     The 4 SIMULATED curves were constructed using data already publicly available on websites.  For details, click on the attachment ....

Former Lieutenant Governor of Delaware (1985-89)"

       EXTRA!  EXTRA!  Harvard Complied on Dec. 1
       
      The NY Times reported that "Harvard Agrees to Turn Over Records Amid Discrimination Inquiry."  

        As a result, if the DOJ wants, it may now construct the 4 curves of Harvard's applicants using REAL data from applicants.  Such a diagram will help illustrate that Harvard's holistic evaluation, judging from its evaluation results, which are vastly different from the academic achievements of its applicants, is a charade.  The purpose of the charade is to do race-balancing as it sees fit, with emphasis on limiting the admission of AsAms.

             $$$ You Could Claim in CA & Other States 

    80-20 normally shies away from this kind of service.  But this one seems cost effective.  Click on https://ucpi.sco.ca.gov/UCP/Default.aspx which lists unclaimed assets in Calif.  The site is very user-friendly.  Anyone can use it.

   Unclaimed assets usually mean dormant savings & checking accounts & 
certificates of deposit, but not real estate.

    At the site, all you need to enter is the last name of the person whom you suspect might have unclaimed assets in CA.  A huge list of persons with that last name will pop up.  You can then narrow down the list by specifying first name and/or city, ..., etc.  If you happen to find that person, even the claim process is supposed to be quite user-friendly.  Good luck!  Other states also provide such websites.  They may not be as user-friendly. The above service was suggested by Nancy Tai, Downingtown, PA who is a $1,000/yr for 5 yrs donor.  We thank her.

Harvard faces Title VI unless it meets Dec. 1 deadline

John M. Gore, Acting Asst. Attorney General, Is Our Hero!

     This is BIG NEWSfirst broken by Wall Street Journal 6 days ago. Thereafter CNN, Washington Post, Yahoo, NBC, NPR, Reuters, Washington Examiner, AOL, BBC and NY Daily News all followed with the same story. 


    Basically, the story is about John M. Gore, Acting Assistant Attorney General of DOJ, whom 80-20 EF highlighted in an earlier e-newsletter, asking Harvard to either comply with DOJ's requests by Dec. 1, or face Title VI.


    The issue is the complaint by SFFA (Students for Fair Admissions) and AACE to DOJ that AsAm students have been discriminated against by Harvard in its admissions policy.


     For a succinct statement of the "UGLY facts on discrimination against Asian American youth", click here.

                              How is DOJ invoking Title VI?

     DOJ is investigating Harvard under Title VI, 42 U.S.C. 2000d et seq.
Title VI, 42 U.S.C. 2000d's definition is shown below.  It has pervasive financial consequences for Harvard University and all faculty members with federal contracts.
    
No person in the United States shall, on the ground of race, color, or national origin, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving Federal financial assistance. 
    Does Harvard's Faculty Have Input into Harvard's Governance?

    Harvard preaches transparency, fairness and equal opportunity for all Americans. However, when it comes to its admission policy, it practices just the opposite, including the deduction of 140 SAT points from AsAm applicants to benefit their white peers. Harvard's hypocrisy is being reported and exposed by our nation's major media outlets day after day.  Should the faculty take a look into this embarrassing and financially consequential matter, if the faculty cares about Harvard?  If Harvard is found to violate Title VI, it'll loss an estimated $750.5 million per year.


      FORWARD this email to all your Harvard or Boston friends.
