Ghettopoly / Record Membership / Election

1) Ghettopoly

In the last two weeks, 80-20 worked hard to take care of the
aftermath created by Ghettopoly.

First, we established credibility to fight against others' prejudice
against us in the future. Remember, how we felt towards the
Abercrombie & Fitch T-shirts, the Shaquille O'Neal mimicking and the
Stephenson statement on Asian golf players? We can't adopt double
standards.

Second, WHAT GOES AROUND COMES AROUND. 80-20
quickly got in touch with NAACP leadership upon stopping Ghettopoly.
We are the smallest and weakest of the minorities, BE SMART & STAY
UNITED.

Third, "Chinkpoly," created by Ms. Jones of 103.9 FM, was stopped.
She apologized on air, before 80-20 even knew about it. Credit goes to
Murali Balaji, President, Asian American Journalists Association of
Philadelphia.

2) 1924 members ­ a 20% annual increase ACHIEVED!

76 more members will get us go over 2000 -- a powerful sounding
figure. Please consider be one of those 76 new members & then help
select 80-20 leaders on Nov. 8th. See blow.

3) Electing 80-20 Board members:

From 11/8 to 11/12, up to 16 candidates will compete for 8 Board
positions. They will replace the 5 Board Members whose terms will
end on 12/31/03. Many candidates are very prominent. Names of
our voters/members and candidates are available on
http://www.80-20initiative.net/election2003.html.

All Board members & officers of 80-20 are elected by members
directly. 80-20 is the most open, democratic, and transparent organization
that goes by the rule of law. It is second to none, within or without the
APA community!
