A parent wrote: "I am shocked by this racial preferences"

End of March is a heartbreaking time for many Asian Am families who have kids applying to college. They foolishly believe that college admission is based on their children's academic performance, extracurricular experiences, leadership experience, and (to many) their superman effort to overcome the handicaps of being first generation immigrants.

They don't know there are greater forces at work. All the high qualifications get an instant deep discount because Asian Ams are politically weak, and few have dared or the know-how to fight for their rights.

One parent wrote me,

"My daughter - a National Merit Finalist, GPA 4.4, SAT-2350, two
SAT II - 800s, six AP tests with all 5s in Junior year, tennis
captain, decent extracurricular with 12 yrs piano, 10 yrs
dancing, president in two clubs, a lot of volunteering, has
been waitlisted or rejected by all the ivy schools, Stanford,
Washington University in St Louis, Rice, and Wellesley. I
am shocked and terrified by this racial preferences."

Need I say more? -- S.B. Woo

Do not wait until, you, your children, or your grandchildren become another sad statistics to wake up to the harsh reality. Fight!

If you've NOT take 80-20's survey on whether YOU support a "race-neutral and merit-based college admission policy," take it NOW! We eliminated more than 3000 duplicate names. As a result, we NEED 1,200 MORE SURVEY TAKERS to make the 50,000 mark which is the equivalent of a 1,000,000 persons mark when project to the scale of the national population.

Take the survey now or forward this email. Click
Thank you.

Sincerely yours,

*By asking "Need I say more?", I am not implying that this student definitely deserves admission by one or more of the schools. I only mean that this is another proof for Princeton sociologist Thomas Espenshade's finding that Asian Ams must out perform whites by 140 points … . I'll even go so far as admitting that there could be a common weakness among dome AsAm students which requires that kind of discount in their scholastic achievement. However, the universities must state its polcy publicly.

If their reasons are valid, the Asian Am. community could possibly mount a gigantic educational effort to correct that defect so that our nation and Asian Ams will ultimately benefit from the correction.

Our first tier universities mouth "transparency." Ho 5453 wever, they hide behind secrecy when it come to giving Asian Ams a level playing field in college admission.

Needless to say, I don't applaud those Asian Am. parents who take their children's going to Ivies as honor badges for themselves and lifetime meal tickets for their children. But there are such parents in every race.
