        Students Oppose "Race-Conscious" College Admission

(1) Brown Univ.
   The Brown Daily Herald reported Nov. 29 the surprising results of a poll that found "more than 58 percent of students oppose the University's consideration of race in student admissions decisions, while over 34 percent of students said they supported the policy."

(2) Univ. of Texas
   In a NY Times article which quoted 80-20's amicus brief to the Supreme Court, it also reported the following. The 8 Asian Am. students, shown below, who are attending the Univ. of Texas all disagree with their instructor in a political identity class. The students oppose using race as a preference for admission which the U. of TX practices.

(3) About a Great Book - MISMATCH by Richard Sander & Stuart Taylor, Jr.
   "Great review of a great book -- and of course that's what you would expect from Thomas Sowell, a national treasure. He's correct in his praise and in his one criticism, namely the failure of Mismatch to call for an outright end to racial preferences." -- Roger Clegg, who is President & General Counsel of the Center for Equal Opportunity.

(4) NPR, Nat'l Public Ratio, quotes 80-20 on college admission

   A few months ago, when 80-20 EF decided to fight against "race-conscious" college admission, did you think that it would be noticed by so many mainstream media? Did you thick we could exerted such influence?

   Support 80-20. It has greatly expanded YOUR GROUP political clout.
