Proof: YOU made a difference for your children

   Here is proof that YOU made a difference, if you have been a member and/or responded to 80-20's many calls.
   Together, whichever issue we have selected to fight and fight courageously, benefits befall the Asian Am community. See another proof below.
   See a Chronicle of High Ed article -- the most authoritative paper in high ed. below. The article reports that Fisher's lawyers (as in Fisher v. U. of Texas) have recently added an emphasis on the discrimination against Asian Am students caused by the "race-conscious" college admission policy. The Fisher brief now aims for a more ambitious goal -- "scrapping the Supreme Court's endorsement of race-conscious admission." 80-20 has worked closely with the Fisher side.

   The above article proves at least one thing. Whichever way the Court will eventually rule, our joint effort has helped bring the discrimination against Asian Am college applicants squarely into the conscious of the nation. The credit goes to YOU!
   In contrast, some Asian Am orgs are still going for political correctness at the expense of our youngster's equal opportunity to enter colleges.
   The Asian American Legal Defense and Education Fund (AALDEF) and a number of other Asian Am. organizations, including Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC), announced that they will file amicus briefs urging the U.S. Supreme Court to support the current "race-conscious" admission policy!!!
   Margaret Fung is the Exec. Director of AALDEF. E-mail her via Don't mince words with them anymore. There is not enough time now. Just tell them that you'll do your best to urge all your friends and relatives to withdraw their support from a group like hers. A few thousand emails may yet do the job.
   Pass the word please. Post your comments on
Kindly please sign your real 
identity and show the courage of your conviction.
