Let a Pulitzer winning reporter WAKE YOU UP!

   Will you knowingly let others OPENLY discriminate against you & your children? No self-respecting individual will!

   Unfortunately, such an OPEN discrimination against Asian Ams exists. Listen to Dan Golden's audio clip below.

   Dan Golden is a Pulitzer-prize winning author and the Deputy Bureau Chief, Boston, of Wall Street Journal. He is an expert in college admissions.

   He is NOT even ideologically with us. Indeed, he supports "race-conscious" admissions. Nevertheless, he straightforwardly states that Asian Americans are DISCRIMINATED against by the current admissions policy.

   Hear his 4-minute audio statement on that matter: .

   When even a neutral observer calls the admissions policy discriminatory toward AsAms. Do YOU want to do something about it? This is an OPEN discrimination against you. Do you have the guts to speak up and the substance to take action?

   Read on. The worst is yet to come.

   What scares me as should you is that Asian Am NATIONAL organizations, AAJC, AALDEF, OCA, and JACL repeatedly SUPPORTED this discriminatory policy against AsAms by filing Amicus briefs with the US District Courts, Circuit Courts and the Supreme Court supporting this "race-conscious" admissions policy.

   When 80-20 discovered this dirty little secret, we spoke up for you.

   80-20 filed an amicus brief in the Supreme Court AGAINST this policy in 2013. We also got most of the Indian Am national orgs to co-file with us. As a result, some AsAm orgs. seem to be repenting. If true, we compliment them for their repentance.

   However, AAJC of D.C. (Asian Am Justice Center) and AALDEF of NY (Asian Am Legal Defense) are still filing in the 5th Circuit Court to support this discriminatory admission policy against Asian Ams.

   Wake up! Ask yourself these questions and think

(1) Do you need 80-20 to protect you? Who else can you turn to?
(2) Can 80-20 protect you effectively when its annual budget is only $0.1 million, while AAJC and AALDEF spend tens of times more each year
     -- using money from liberal foundations which have always placed more importance in other minorities than AsAms?
(3) Are you too stingy to donate your own money to protect yourself against discrimination? Do you want your children to respect you? They know that they are being discriminated against in college admissions. That's why many didn't want to identify themselves as Asian Am. Is that a reflection on ALL of us for our timidity and ineffectiveness?     

   ALL self-respecting individuals will do their shares to fight against OPEN discrimination against them. Will you?
