- In 1999, when Cox Committee Report fanned suspicions of Chinese Americans
by charging that China had stolen U.S. secrets that helped it to miniaturized
nuclear weapons for use in intercontinental missiles,
- In 1999 to 2000, when Wen Ho Lee was accused as a spy, convicted by the
press, without the due process of law,
- In 2001, when a formal survey sponsored by The Committee of 100, and done
by a well-known polling firm, revealed that a large fraction of our fellow

- In 2001, when our plane collided with a Chinese plane near Hainan island,
and anti-Chinese-government sentiments surfaced as anti-APA sentiments.
