Restore the Dignity of Your Asian Names: 35481 voted!

Dear Fellow Asian Americans:

35481 Asian Americans have spoken in 10 days, voted 31:1 FOR a race-neutral, merit-based college admission. Please mobilize your friends to take this 80-20 EF SURVEY, projecting your voice to the Supreme Court! http://admin.80-20nj.info/cgi/80/e?l=8/11e/f&w=no

80-20 will advocate YOUR choice to the Supreme Court and elected officials.

Inaction will prolong the sad reality outlined below. If each forward and get ten more people to vote, we will prevail.

Why care? Ask which world do you prefer to live in?

o The high ideal
"I have a dream that my four children will one day live in a nation where they will NOT be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."
-Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

o The harsh college reality
"I had a 3.7 undergraduate GPA. As an Asian I didn't qualify for loans or grants as I was not an 'under-rep' minority so worked 3 jobs to get through school. One of them was to tutor 'under-rep' minorities that usually had GPA in the 1's and 2's and had an overall graduation rate of 30%. Just lowering the bar to absolute rock bottom to meet diversity quotas is absolutely, positively absurd. …. Fix the problem in K-12 because it's pointless by college." -BrandonH, St. Louis

Currently, the prevailing college admission policy artificially places highly qualified Asian Am. applicants to compete against each other rather than against the general pool of all applicants, instilling such a fear that many Asian Americans hide their own racial identity in application. Will we survive as a minority if our youths feel that way? If we don't fight back, the status quo will remain.

5700 people of all races commented on 'Some Asian's College Strategy: Don't check "Asian"'

o "I used to be a faculty representative on a college admissions committee and when students either didn't mark a racial category or marked "other" or "decline to state", I saw admissions officers Google the surnames and then write an ethnic identify in pencil on the non-compliant applicant form. The committee then divided the applicants into piles for quotas based on the affirmative action goals. The point was always made that the percentage of each racial/ethnic group must mirror the percentage in "the community." Political correctness has ruined high education in this country, provided degrees to young people who can't read, write, and do arithmetic; and denied admission to hundreds of people"

o "Rewarding mediocrity in the US for whatever reason has allowed other countries to catch up."

o "Why doesn't the NBA do this to make sure there are enough white and Latino and Asian players?"

o "Asians are not smarter, they just have parents who hold them to high standards, read to them instead of using the TV as a babysitter when they were young, and encourage them to learn."

o "I am from Canada. I don't remember seeing any race boxes on our college/university application forms. America is so obsessed with race."

o "I live in Europe, and not one question on our letters of application for colleges asked for race."

o "Asians who are stereotyped as boring academic robots...."

o "Compete, by improving yourself, not by tearing others down!"

o "If the United States is a melting pot why is it necessary to identify each ingredient? "

o "The irony is that the progressives of yesterday have left us with a legacy of oppression."

o "Asians are unfortunately, too much of a minority to be a politically correct minority."

o "I checked the Asian box once applying to UIUC champaign IL and it was the biggest mistake of my life."

o "True diversity: celebrating the differences instead of equalizing everything."

o "In the name of "diversity" and feel-good "multiculturalism," universities are watering down
standards by imposing what is effectively a race-based quota system for admissions."

o "Affirmative is just #$%$ - I am black and very good in my job…People are always going to
wonder if I got my position because of race, and it's very frustrating. Let's all get rid race in..."

o "I consented to my daughter using my ex-wife's family surname so she could claim to be
Hispanic. Says a lot about the sad state of America."

o "Asians excel academically and economically because they have not adopted the "group
victimhood" mentality"

o "I'm half Puerto Rican and half Irish-German. My college adviser told me to only check the
Hispanic box"

o "Martin Luther King and civil rights movement argued only for equality, not special rights."

o "I'm black and I'd be mad as heck if another brotha or sista whose scores weren't up to par but
was accepted to a top notch school instead of the student ( white, asian or whatever) who busted
their tail and worked hard..."

o "What about the old complaint that the SAT is designed favorably toward white students?"

o "Some of those same schools tried to limit us Jews in the past. So more of us changed our
names... Asians often have surnames with some ancestral significance and it would be a shame
for them to resort to the same thing."

o "How dare some people do better than others! - America - no longer believes in equal rights-
but strongly believes in equal outcome- despite effort and ability."

o "Sometimes I feel like I got into the program by the fact that they need diversity. Well I guess
that's how the professor made me feel all the time."

o "I'm half Spanish/Filipino so I checked 'Hispanic' instead of 'Asian/Pacific Islander.' Why
compete with other Asians when I can be a grossly underrepresented … Hispanic?"

o "So what do I do if I'm 100% Asian? 100% screwed?"

o "…Some minorities are more equal than others."

o "Stop dumbing down America."

o "Education, ultimately, should free us from all forms of discrimination...but when educators
does it?... help!!!!"

o "…institutionalized reverse racism"

o "Education in this country is not about education, but politics. We undermine our own best,
and then we wonder why we are losing our competitive edge in the world."

o "African Americans…we are bullied by the losers in our families and community who want
to keep us down at their level by saying being smart is trying to be white or "the white man
ain't gonna let you get ahead anyway."
