Tribute to 80-20's Magnificent Members & Supporters


###### ALERT #####

Two students of Asian ethnicity were allegedly urinated
on and subjected to obscenities by two fellow U. of
Michigan students on 9/15. The case was being disputed
with witnesses on both sides. Police is investigating.
80-20 is keeping an eye on it. (End) ######

THANKS TO YOUR GENEROSITY, you enabled us to not only talk but tackle the big and difficult issues of equal justice & equal
opportunity that few other AsAm organizations are willing to handle.
You are the ones who "WALK THE TALK." You are the ones who
practice what Gandhi preached: "YOU MUST BE THE CHANGE YOU
WISH TO SEE IN THIS WORLD. "

You stepped up to pay dues with "A GOOD CONSCIENCE BEING YOUR ONLY
REWARD. "

You took action because you are unwilling to witness or permit the denial of equal justice & equal opportunity to yourselves & your children to which America
has always been committed.*

You confront this great moral issue, because you understand that the
denial of equal justice & opportunity to a large portion of Asian Ams.
is the denial of the same to YOU & all Americans.

Help break 80-20's record membership of 2104 set in 2004! Our torch
MUST be passed from one year to another with its flame burning higher
and higher. IT HELPS ENSURE OUR VICTORY. Please do you share:
JOIN OR HELP RECRUIT. See below. Thank you.

Respectfully yours,
S.B. Woo

S. B. Woo's Speech at UMN


The Importance of Group Political Clout

America is a great country and it has one the world's best political
systems. However, all political systems are managed by human beings, and
human beings are full of frailties and contradictions. For example, we can
be so noble as to die for people in other lands for an ideal. On the other
hand, we can be so blind to the sufferings of others sitting, living and
working
next to us simply because they differ from us in some apparent ways: be
they the color of our skin, race, national origin, gender, religion and/or
sexual orientation. In fact, human beings can be so insensitive as to not
only discriminate against others but also invent negative stereotyped images

about them in order to justify their prejudice.

There are three major stereotyped negative images against the Asian
Americans. First, we are "good work horses but are so hopelessly lacking
in leadership skills to become race horses." Second, a lot of of our
compatriots think of us as "perpetual foreigners who are more loyal to our
respective old countries than our chosen country, America." Third, Asian
Americans are "too timid to be aggressive even when it is called for."

How are we to deal with these prejudice? There is nothing better
than ORGANIZING OUR OWN GROUP POLITICAL CLOUT. With that we can, first,
speak up effectively to counter the unfair stereotypes, and second,
take action to REMEDY the consequences of such negative stereotypes.

Let me now cite historic examples in America to show you why GROUP
POLITICAL CLOUT is the best way in America to protect a small minority
like the Asian Americans (AsAms) from exploitaiton.

At the beginning of our Republic, our forefathers proudly
pronounced that "All men are created equal." However, for 87 more years,
Blacks remained slaves. For 144 more years, white women could not vote.
Indeed, even after the so called emancipation and suffrage, African
Americans and white women didn't REALLY enjoy equal opportunity to attend
colleges and get good jobs. It was not until they toiled, I mean toiled,
to establish their OWN group political clout that they became equal
citizens of America. African Americans went through the great Civil
Rights Movement in the 1960s. They organized NAACP, the Black
Congressional Caucus, and Jesse Jackson's Rainbow coalition. Women went
thru. the women's liberation movement, and organized N.O.W., The Nat'l
Org. of Women, and the Emily List and quite a few others. It was then and
only then that they began to break glass ceilings and enjoy equal justice.

Think for a moment now, who were those white women who were
not allowed to vote. They were no less then the mothers, wives
and sisters of the politicians in power at the time. Yet those
political leaders not only denied their mothers, wives
and sisters the rights to vote but also spread negative stereotypes about
them.
Some of you males may still believe in that negative
stereotyoe: "Women are too soft in their hearts and heads
to make political decisions."

Today such negative images about women become laughable, given the
magnificant examples of Sandra O'Conner, Hillary Clinton, Diane Finestein
and Barbara Boxer. Similarly, the negative images about AsAms will become
laughable -- I promise you -- a decade or two from now, if only that
we AsAms will wake up and organize our own Group political clout.

Let me cite more examples to show that we need
Group Political Clout. Will white males, who are without the group
political clout, be discriminated in America? Absolutely YES.

About 175 yrs ago, when the Irish first immigrated en mass to
America, after the Great Potato Famine, discrimination against them was
rampant. They were stereotyped as "either perpetually poor or forever
drunk." A newspaper ad about a job seeking applicants in Boston, where
the Irish congregated at the time, blatantly stated: "No Irish Need
Apply."

However, the Irish soon learnt that IN AMERICA, if people
discriminated against you because they didn't like you as an individual,
the best recourse was to go to the Court. If people discriminated against
you because you were a member of a powerless group, the best remedy would
be to build your own group political clout.

So the Irish organized and began to vote as a bloc. That is, they
voted as a united community to reward those politicians who cared for
their rightful aspirations and punished those who didn't. Soon good jobs
opened to the Irish. Equal justice came too. Thereafter the Irish melted
into the great melting pot of America.

The Polish and Italians who immigrated to America after the Irish
met the same discrimination and used the same political recipe to lift
themselves to be equal citizens of America. A famous
historian once said, "The history of America is the history of the
immigrant underclass, using the political process, to lift themselves into
the equal class." In the mid 20th century, the Jewish Americans built
their group political clout. Two decades ago, the gays built their own
political clout. Today, the Hispanics are building their own political
clout. Should Asian Ams. wake up and build our own group political
clout?

Why did I tell you that this and that group including Caucasian males and females have all suffered discrimination? It is because I want to show you that while the initial cause of your being
discriminated is because you have apparent differences such as races & nationality from the majority in power, the persistence of that discrimination is DUE TO our own fault. We failed to organize our own group political clout (GPC).
.

So let me now use the 80-20 PAC to illustrate how we can organize
our own GPC. 80-20 is a national, pan Asian political action committee
dedicated to winning equal justice and opportunity for Asian Americans.
It advocates that we must be united to get our Group political clout.
And the best demonstration of our GPC is through a swing bloc vote in
presidential elections.

I've mentioned equal opportunity, political clout, and a swing
bloc votes. Allow me to explain each to you.

Equal opportunity is for every man, woman and child to go as far
and rise as high as their ambition and ability will take them. In other
words, equal pay for equal work, equal opportunity to get salary
increments and promotions, and equal opportunity to rise to the top.

What is political clout? It is much more than just electing a few
AsAms to high political offices. Political clout is the ability to
reward and punish any politician, I repeat, any politician. Reward the
politicians who share our rightful concerns by getting them elected.
Punish those who don't share our rightful concerns by un-electing them.

What is a bloc vote? Why is it so powerful? Here is an illustration.
Two candidates run against each other in a political division, which for
simplicity is assumed to have two constituent groups only. One group has 1
million votes (8%) and the other has 11 million votes (92%). Candidate A, a
novice, courts the larger group, not being aware that the smaller
constituent group has the internal political cohesion to deliver a bloc vote
in the ratio of 8 to 2 while the larger group does not. When the ballots are
open, candidate A wins the larger community by the ratio of 52/48. The
margin of difference is 4%. Since the larger group has 11 millions votes,
4% of 11 million votes provides a winning margin of 440,000 votes to
candidate A. His opponent, candidate B, is a seasoned politician. She
courts the smaller group and wins that community by a ratio of 80 to 20,
which is the voting pattern of the Jewish Americans and African Americans.
The difference between 80% and 20% is 60%. 60% of 1 million votes is
600,000 votes. As a result, candidate B wins the election by (600,000 -
440,000) or 160,000 votes.

Astounding? Yes. But that is the power of a bloc vote. Why did I
use those particular numbers in my illustration? It is because I was
using AsAms in CA as an example. Asian Americans represents 8% of CA's
voters. And in a presidential election, the rest of CA may just vote
about 52 to 48.

Why does 80-20 advocate a SWING block vote? That is, why does
80-20 advocate voting as a bloc for Democrats sometimes, and for
Republicans in other times? It is because a swing bloc vote is the best way
to induce both parties to compete to serve the rightful interests of
Asian Americans.

Is 80-20 being power hungry? Certainly not. However, it does
advocate to get our share of the political clout to protect ourselves from
exploitation. In organizing our own GPC, will we be balkanizing America?
Absolutely not. We gather our own GPC so that we may melt as equal
partners into America.

Let me point this out to you. Our fight is a fight to help make
America "a more perfect Union," as our forefathers have ordained it. Our
struggle is a struggle for the noblest of the American Dreams, the
dream of equal opportunity for all Americans. WE are dedicating ourselves
to fulfill one of the most solemn pledges of Americans, the pledge of
allegiance to the Flag, which as you know ends with " ...with liberty and
justice for ALL." I repeat "with liberty and justice FOR ALL." This ends
my speech. You've been a great audience. Thank you.

Does 80-20 deserve your help?

     Hello.  This is S. B. again. Will REASONING, rather than my
personal appeal, sit better with you?  Please give me 2 minutes to
read the following.

     Unworthy organizations should die.  ANSWER 3 QUESTIONS
for yourself to decide if 80-20 is worth your $50 or personal effort to
recruit on 80-20's behalf?

     (1) DO YOU KNOW of another AsAm organization that fights the
BIG DIFFICULT BATTLES for you e.g. MORE representation in
Federal courts & enforcement of an existing law to give you EQUAL
opportunity in workplaces?

     (2) DO YOU KNOW of an AsAm org. that can mobilize the AsAm
community to ACTION as 80-20 has done?  Visit
http://www.80-20initiative.net/unity1.html

     (3) DO YOU KNOW of another AsAm org. that has the record of
having delivered two consecutive BLOC VOTES in the 2000 and
2004 presidential elections -- the root of 80-20's political clout &
perhaps the ONLY MESSAGE that politicians will jump up & note.
      Visit: http://www.80-20initiative.net/APAvote2004.html (2004) &

80-20 Covered by World Journal and Singtao

80-20 Received Great Coverage last week from the two largest Chinese-language newspapers in AMerica, World Journal and Singtao.

(World Journal article being put up soon)
http://www.singtaousa.com/101405/cm03.php (Singtao, Oct 14)

Text of article in Singtao is as follows:

80/20力爭亞裔平等就業

( 本報記者張芷毓布雷斯本報道)

八十/二十促進會創辦人、現任會長吳仙標昨日拜訪星島日報,與美西版總編輯梁建峰交流如何幫助亞裔爭取平等的看法。吳仙標指出,八十/二十不帶有任何黨派標籤,只是遵循美國政治“利益交換”遊戲規則,改善亞裔仍遭遇歧視的現狀。

梁建峰總編輯指出,由於吳仙標及八十/二十不少代表皆是或曾經是民主黨人,因而讓外界普遍認為該會傾向於民主黨。吳仙標表示,雖然歷史背景無從改變,但該會始終注意平衡共和黨、民主黨和獨立派的代表。支持哪一個黨派,端看這個黨派能否滿足八十/二十為亞裔爭取權益的要求。他以“有奶就是娘”形容其中的關係,並稱﹕“這也是美國政治利益交換的遊戲規則。”

需引起聯邦政府關注

據吳仙標介紹,作為政治行動組織的八十/二十,目前進行兩方面的努力,包括促成任命亞裔成為聯邦最高法院法官,爭取平等就業和升遷機會。他坦言,這兩件都是不容易完成的事情,但關鍵是要讓聯邦政府聽見亞裔的訴求,而八十/二十定會為此鬥爭到底。

之所以要實現聯邦最高法院中有亞裔代表,吳仙標認為,這是讓亞裔在美國得到平等司法保障所必須的,因為最高法院法官的判決極有可能影響美亞裔的整體命運。聯邦法庭體系(最高法院、上訴法院和地區法院)中,亞裔則不到1%。他說﹕“無論用哪一個標準,族裔或性別,亞裔的比率都是最低的。我們相信在可預見的未來,是可能有更多的亞裔法官出現,如現任耶魯大學法學院院長的韓裔高洪柱。”

早在今年5月17日,八十/二十就致信勞工部部長趙小蘭,希望能引起其對亞裔在職場中遭遇歧視和升遷瓶頸等問題的關注和反饋。吳仙標昨日表示,該組織至今仍未收到趙小蘭部長的直接回應,預計本月內可能有消息。他說﹕“會是怎樣的結果,我並不知道。但如果還是遲遲沒有消息,我們一定會採取行動,包括在《紐約時報》等大報刊登全版廣告,聯合知名亞裔簽名,向法庭提出控訴,要求國會召開公聽會等。”

亞裔仍欠缺政治關心

吳仙標承認,在爭取平等就業機會問題上,受到不少亞裔,特別是華裔人士和組織的不認同,因為直接針對的人是唯一一名華裔部長。他解釋說﹕“其實並非如此,因為法律規定這個問題是由勞工部負責,我們只能找她。亞裔職場受歧視是冰凍三尺非一日之寒,歷任的勞工部長都有責任,但趙小蘭是現任的,今天要進步,非找她不可。”

吳仙標表示,亞裔,特別是華裔,對政治的關心度仍然有所欠缺,他希望包括《星島日報》在內的美國中文媒體能夠共同為爭取亞裔平等權益而努力,以華裔所熟悉的語言,解釋美國政府和司法等體系的運作規律,團結一致,提升亞裔的社會政治地位。

Do me a favor?


   You are a leader & a pillar of our community whom I hope to meet
personally one day.  I know you as one who is willing to ACT to
empower AsAms politically.  I SHARE YOUR GOAL and have tried my
best.

   In 1997, during the "Asia Gate," I came out of retirement from
public service* to help give our community GROUP political clout to
protect Asian Ams. from exploitation.  Since establishing 80-20, I
have given it 7 years of my life.  In addition, Katy & I donated
$35,000 to 80-20.  To allay people's suspicion of my motive, I
announced "NEVER to run for office, or accept any government
appointment for the rest of my life."

   Now I am near my swan song.  We are much closer to attaining
GROUP political clout now.  We just need to persist.  For that, we
need your personal imprint to advance our cause.  Does $50 mean
that much to you?  If not, please join TODAY (see below).  We need
150 more members to break the old record by 100.

   GOOD NEWS: My earlier appeal brought in 150 members
in 4 days, including 4 new Life Members (Sunny Wong, Dr.

official ever achieved by an AsAm in the continental USA in 1984.
In 1996, to my delight, Gary Locke broke that record by getting
elected as the Governor of Washington. Your joining 80-20 will
help produce an AsAm President one day & a Supreme Court
Justice SOON.
