"Race-conscious" admission is ANTI-Affirmative Action

[A] "Race-conscious" admission is ANTI-Affirmative Action
  o Purpose of Affirmative Action (AA) is to help minorities for the historic wrongs against them.
  o Asian Americans have historically been on the receiving end of discrimination. Examples: Chinese Exclusion Act and the internment of Japanese Americans during WWII.
  o "Race-conscious" college admission PENALIZES Asian Ams. who apply to elite colleges in favor of the whites by 140 SAT points (out of 1600).
  o Isn't that ANTI-Affirmative Action? YOU be the judge pls. :)
  o Why are Asian Am. organizations like
            Asian American Legal Defense & Eduction Fund (AALDEF)
              Margaret Fung
( info@aaldef.org )
            Asian Pacific American Legal Center (APALC)
              (Stewart Kwoh,
info@aaldef.org )
            Asian American Justice Center (AAJC),
     supporting ANTI-Affirmative Action? Are they ANTI-Asian American?
  o We challenge these organizations to explain it to us. Why are they supporting a part of AA that is actually ANTI-affirmative action?

   AALDEF sent a press release casting doubts on 80-20's recent survey in which 47,000+ AsAms participated and chose a "race-neutral" college admission policy by a 52 to 1 ratio.
   In response, 80-20 EF challenges AALDEF to do another survey together, each putting up half the cost. We'll hire an expert to design a neutral survey on a website, lasting one month, and monitored by a neutral group. The survey asks Asian Am survey takers to choose a "race-conscious" or "race-neutral" college admission policy.
   If AALDEF dares not accept this challenge, then the public will know which organization has NO RESPECT for our community's view. The above Asian Am orgs. will file an amicus brief for a "race conscious" college admission by Aug. 13, UNLESS YOU convince them to stop. There is not much time!

   AALDEF: Dare you accept this challenge?

   FORWARD this e-newsletter to your Asian Am friends. Post your comments on http://www.80-20educationalfoundation.org/ 18e politicaledu/posterboard.asp.
