A True Story

        In 1985, during the Lake Geneva Summit,

President Reagan asked Gorbachev, "What would you do if the United States were suddenly attacked by someone from outer space? Would you help us?'"

Gorbachev: "'No doubt about it."'

Reagan: 'We too.'"

Inspired By this True Story

        S. B. Woo emailed many of his political VIP friends:

"Dear xxx:

        We are being attacked by Aliens - Covid-19, Delta, Omicron and many future variants to come. They are enslaving us earthlings - limiting our freedom to travel, ruining our stock market and forcibly changing our lifestyles. 

        However, the statesmen among the earthlings are obsessed with their vainglorious competition to be the TOP earthling and feeling so proud to be working on “guardrails" to prevent a-war-among-earthlings that could result from such competition. 

        Does that make sense?

         A 10-year old kid can tell those wise statesmen that the obvious choice is to unite all the earthlings to wage a-war-on-Alens to break the yoke of enslavement on our neck.

        Please, my dear statesman, turn this extraordinary danger into an extraordinary opportunity to bring peace on earth and blessings to all earthlings, regardless of their political beliefs.

Respectfully yours,

        Will S. B. be so lucky as to touch one of his friends to work on UNITING ALL EARTHLINGS??? Add your voice! Email a similar message to your
political VIP friends.

Biggest Battle for Eq.Oppor.Coming Soon

 To put this e-newsletter on WeChat, you need:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Historic Background (I): Systemic Discrimination Against AsAms

      AsAm adults suffer the lowest glass ceiling in workplaces, while AsAm youths suffer the highest barrier in college admissions. To see an example of 80-20's battles against such systemic discrimination, see a full-page ad. in Washington Post placed by 80-20 on December 6, 2006.

Historic Background (II): Our battles to Protect
our Children's Equal Opportunity to Education

      The AsAm community is financially well to do. We have more people, per thousand in population, with bachelor's and higher degrees than any other races. However, unlike the Jewish community we do NOT have non-government organizations with sufficient human and financial resources to fight against blatant systemic discrimination against our children.

      As a result, 80-20 courted Ed Blum who has the legal expertise and millions of dollars to fight this battle for us and with us*. He has mounted lawsuits against Harvard, University of North Carolina and a few others.

      From day one, we knew we would lose the court cases at the District Courts and Appeals Courts. However, we have the strategic patience
to know that "He who laughs last, laughs best." After years of toiling, the lawsuits have finally crept to the Supreme Court level, where we hope for a
very different ruling.

The Biggest Battle for Eq. Opportunity of our Children Coming Soon!

      Please read a NY Times article published 5 days ago. Its title is: "The Supreme Court Tactic That Aims to Kill Affirmative Action". Its subtitle is: "A group suing Harvard and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has asked the court to hear the two cases together, hoping for a ruling that would apply across education." The word "across" means that the Supreme Court ruling would apply to BOTH private and public universities.

      That NYT's title exhibits a part of the hidden systemic discrimination against AsAms. The aim of our lawsuits is to stop discrimination against AsAm applicants, not to kill Affirmative Action, AA, whether AA is involved in the legal examination or not.

      Do you need reminding how discriminatory Harvard is against our children? Recall that Harvard's "holistic" evaluation of applicants includes a "personality rating". Ed Blum's lawsuits brought out the shocking fact that the average personality rating of AsAm applicants is significantly lower than that of applicants of all other races. That is how Harvard camouflaged a barrier to limit the number of its AsAm students, just like it did against the Jewish students years ago. Wow! It adds insult to injury!

      Take a stand to protect our children's equal opportunity to education! Support 80-20. Check your memory. Do you know of any other big AsAm orgs. which support the lawsuits against Harvard and U. of N. Carolina**????

*80-20 has worked with Ed Blum long before Students For Fair   Admissions  was established by Ed Blum. SFFA is the plaintiff in those
  lawsuits. 80-20  donates $10,000 to SFFA every year for many years.  We also provide strong moral support for Ed Blum.

**Actually there are a couple of other good orgs. They just may not have as
  big an email list as that of 80-20. We value their partnership in battles. Note,   however, almost every big AsAm org., except for 80-20, adheres to the   partisan views of the Democratic Party and does not support the lawsuits.   80-20 is truly non-partisan and looks after the rightful interests of AsAms.

Michelle Wu Got Nat'l Spot Light

President Joe Biden Spotlights Michelle WU

       Two days agoPresident Joe Biden sent this email to his "team":
"Team --

The results in Virginia this week were a wake up call for our party. ....
if we want to continue building back better, we have our work cut out for us.

Despite the outcome in Virginia, there is still plenty of reason to hope. .... Democrats also secured historic victories nationwide. Governor Phil Murphy became the first Democrat in nearly 45 years to win a second term in New Jersey. Michelle Wu will be the first woman, person of color, and Asian American to be elected mayor of Boston. ... The list goes on... " (emphasis added)

     The above means Pres. Joe Biden counts Michelle Wu as "reason to hope." We can count that as another building block in our self-empowerment program.

     For AsAm youths, who want to be involved in America's political process, read Boston Globe's article of yesterday: "Before Michelle Wu’s historic victory, she spent years community-building". Take that to heart! Don't copy from someone who ran for high offices, without the necessary political groundwork & experience.

An Open and Friendly Caution to Michelle Wu

Dear Michelle:

     Politics is consuming. I was there. May I share with you a consuming temptation that I have encountered? Selfish flatterers, usually big donors and/or staffs, will soon ask you to plan for your next political move. Don't! A premature political move may ruin your career. Plant your feet firmly in Boston and serve your constituents well for at least 8 years.

     Don't forget where you come from. Asian Americans don't have equal opportunity yet.

Your presumptuous and self-assumed uncle,
S. B. Woo

Wu Won Big; 80-20 Invites Volunteers

 To put this e-newsletter on WeChat, you need:

- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Michelle Wu Won by 64.2% to 35.8%!

     80-20 has proved with the accuracy of its prediction on Wu's victory and the margin of her victory, that 80-20 knows election politics.

      2.5 months ago, our e-newsletter entitled Help a Good AsAm Candidate Winintroduced Michelle to you. At the time, she was largely unknown outside of Boston and MA. She was only leading her closest primary opponent by 23.4% to 21.6% in polls, while 22 % of her voters were still undecided. Look where she is today. She won by close to 30 points.

     80-20's 08/16/21 e-newsletter also said:

     "80-20 will only recommend an AsAm candidate to you, if we've studied and mostly approved of the candidate's
          a) political career and activities,
          b) his/her chance of winning the particular campaign, and
          c) his/her personal & political value system.

       We are proud to strongly recommend to you Michelle Wu ....."

     THANK YOU for following 80-20's urging to donate to & volunteer for Wu's campaign. CONGRATULATIONS, MICHELLE! Serve Boston well!

What Is 80-20's REAL GOAL In The Above Prediction Exercise?

     REAL GOAL: To forge a politically more cohesive AsAm community in the support of worthy AsAm political candidates. Help them win! Through that process, we EMPOWER ourselves!

     In 80-20's view, there are 3 types of AsAm candidates:

1] Great candidates who are good for their constituents and the AsAm community, and who will likely win. 80-20 will rally all out support for them.

2] Strong candidates who may win or lose and yet have a bright political future even after a defeat. 80-20 will help root for & coach them (if welcome), provided they also identify with AsAms' best interests.

3] Unworthy candidates with no chance of winning and/or candidates who ruthlessly use our community's political immaturity as a stepping stone for personal gain. 80-20 will be stone-silent towards such candidates.

     80-20 will NOT rate the hundreds of minor local candidates. We don't have enough resources.

     FROM HERE ON, please look for 80-20's recommendation on AsAm
candidates running for high offices. When we help the right candidates, we EMPOWER ourselves. When we are stone-silent, shy away from such candidates.

Have Time For a Volunteer Job That Pays?

     If you have the most basic spreadsheet skill and can type, 80-20 is looking for volunteers to help harvest email addresses. We'll pay $0.4 per valid AsAm e-address. Please email Lily Ren, my Special Assistant, ( The job may fit housewives the best. Thank you.
