Comparing Jewish Ams. with Asian Ams (Part II)

   This is part II of "Our Rich & Powerful."

                       Asian Americans Are the New Jews

   Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Daniel Golden called Asians "the new Jews, inheriting the mantle of the most disenfranchised group in college admissions." Golden observed, "Average SAT scores for Asian Americans admitted to the Ivy Leagues are substantially above those for any other group, including whites . . . ."

                       To the Jewish Ams, Charity Begins At Home

   They help themselves. In 2010, the Jewish community spent at least $28 per Jewish Am. to protect their rights and advance their rightful interests. See FOOTNOTE 1.
   In contrast, 80-20 PAC and Educational Foundation can only spend $0.007 per Asian Am. See FOOTNOTE 2.

  Asian American "Rich & Powerful" Don't Help Their Own People

   In 2000, Lulu and Anthony Wang gave $25 million to Wellesley College. In 2002, Charles B. Wang donated $52 million to SUNY. In 2007, Jerry Yang and his wife Akiko Yamazaki pledged $75 million to Stanford. In 2008, Oscar L. Tang gave $25 million to Philips Academy Andover. In 2012, the Chao family, including former Sec. of Labor Elaine Chao, donated $40 million to Harvard Business School. The sum is $217 million over 12 years, averaging $18 million per year. While we appreciate these wonderful individuals' good deeds for our nation, we like to call to their attention the following contrast.
   In comparison, to the best of our knowledge, not a single Asian Am has given more than $3 million to an Asian Am cause in the history of America.

           Asian Ams Are the Most Discriminated Against in the USA

   As the mainstream media have increasingly noted:
      (a) Our children face the tallest barrier in applying to elite colleges, &
      (b) Our adults face the lowest glass ceiling in workplaces.
   God helps those who help themselves. We must help ourselves first. Forward this newsletter to those who ID with us. To comment, click
