Sen. Kerry Answered Yes/Yes/Yes Too!

Check out and see
the signature of Sen. John Kerry on 80-20's questionnaire. He has just
joined 5 other Dem. presidential candidates, Cong. Kucinich, Gov.
Dean, Amb. Braun, Sen. Edwards and Gen. Clark
, promising
the enforcement of Exec. Order 11246 so that the talents of APAs
will no longer be under-utilized.

If one of those 6 becomes our next president, we will enjoy equal
opportunity in workplaces, whether it is salary increment or promotion
or rising to the top. The glass ceiling will be broken. It will benefit
every APA. Even those who are NOT citizens will benefit, because "a
rising tide lifts all ships

Censure the only 3 Dem presidential candidates who have
not yet responded positively. They are Cong. Richard Gephardt, Senator
Joseph Lieberman, and Rev. Al Sharpton. Tell your friends and relatives
all across the nation, especially those in EARLY PRIMARY STATES,
e.g. Iowa, New Hampshire, Arizona & S. Carolina.

Everybody talks about the glass ceiling above us. Only 80-20 takes
effective action to eliminate it.

Join 80-20 in 2004. The more members we have, the more effective
WE will be to induce George W. Bush to respond positively to 80-20's
questionnaire. When the major candidates of both political parties have
promised in writing to enforce EO 11246 on our behalf, our glass ceiling
will be broken after the 2004 election. YOU OWE IT TO YOURSELF AND

Don't be a free loader.

CALL TO ACTION: Reward & Censure Candidates

Here's how to reward and censure presidential candidates in order
to win our equal opportunity in workplaces. First, some facts.

Fact 1: Dean & Kucinich have helped us. Dean has money; leads in
Iowa, New Hampshire, S. Carolina & a few other states but is only sixth
in CA -- the state with the largest number of delegates to the Dem. Nat'l
Convention where a nominee is elected. Kucinich needs money.

Fact 2: Clark, Kerry, Gephardt, Edwards, Lieberman, Sharpton & Braun
have NOT helped yet. They all want to do better in Iowa or New
Hampshire. Many are aiming to defeat Dean in CA. Edwards currently
has a small lead in CA.

Fact 3: Bush has NOT helped yet. He is the only candidate in the Rep.
Party. He has Money. He doesn't need votes in the PRIMARY; he
needs votes in the GENERAL.


A. REWARD (Be sure to identify yourself as an 80-20 supporter):

1. Send Kucinich money. Help him with $$ via

2. Help Dean in CA. Make perhaps a small amount via
Volunteer for him in CA, or get your friends and relatives who live in
CA to volunteer for him. To volunteer: go to left sidebar of , click on options under

Dean & Kucinich answered 80-20: YES/YES/YES

If one of them becomes our next President, Exec. Order 11246 will
be enforced for APAs. YOU, yes YOU personally, will reap huge
Let's see how it works.

(1) If you work in the academic world, the ratio of [administrators /
(faculty + professional)] for APAs will increase from the current
0.057 to the nat'l average of 0.150, in about 10 yrs. It means there
will be 6000 ADDITIONAL full-time APA administrators. Rising tide
lifts all ships. With more APA administrators, all APAs working in
universities, from janitors to instructors to secretaries will

(2) If you work for corporations, law and accounting firms, federal
or state governments
, the increase in the APA ratio in
[(Executive/management)/ (peoples just below the manager level)]
will increase EVEN MORE. Suppose you are young and not even
close to the management level yet, still you'll benefit because
rising ride lifts all ships.

(3) If you work in Korea town or Little Manila, or are with the ethnic
media, or own your own business or in a business that
has little apparent connection with the mainstream society, WILL

Definitely. With 3 times as many APA executives & managers,
there will be more money in our community. Hence, more will be
spent in ethnic localities. More ads will be bought in ethnic media
resulting in higher pay for ethnic reporters. The Silicon Valley
entrepreneurs will have more APA CEOs in the Fortune 500
companies to call on for venture capitals and/or contracts. All
in all, it is the same cause and effective: RISING TIDE LIFTS ALL

GOOD & BAD NEWS! The good news is that Gov. Dean is the odds on
candidate to be the Democratic nominee
. So we may have about 50-50
chance to have 11246 enforced for us after the 2004 election.

The bad news is that Candidate Bush and the 7 other Democratic
candidates have NOT signed up yet. We should seize the golden
opportunity of the presidential election and make it 100% certain to
have 11246 enforced for us.

In the NEXT e-mail, we will give you information on how to THANK
Dean & Kucinich, and how to induce the rest, Dem. & Rep., TO
. If you can't wait, go to . Names of candidates,
their email addresses, fax and phone numbers are all there.

80-20 Questionnaire To All Presidential Candidates

On 12/1, 80-20 sent the following questionnaire to all
presidential candidates -- the 9 Democrats plus President Bush.

80-20's Presidential Candidate Questionnaire:

"With liberty and justice for all." Thus ends our pledge of
allegiance to the flag with a ringing commitment to all citizens.
Unfortunately, liberty and justice remain an unrealized dream for
Asian Pacific Americans. A low glass-ceiling hangs instead over our
heads, denying us the opportunity to rise to the top of our
professions, just as it hung over women and blacks until recently.

Statistical evidence, mostly gathered by government sponsored
studies, shows a dismal picture: APAs have only one-third the
opportunity of all other Americans to "rise to the top," in the
academic world, in corporations, or even in federal government.

To illustrate, let's look at the situation in universities, the
so-called bastion of idealism in our society. University administrators
are recruited almost exclusively from the ranks of faculty and
professionals already employed in universities. Hence the ratio of
[administrators / (faculty + professionals)], broken down to races, is
measure of the opportunity enjoyed by American citizens of different
races. Nationwide, for full-time staff that ratio for blacks (non-
Hispanic) is 0.199. That is, for every 100 black faculty and
professionals there are 20 black administrators. The ratio for Native
American is 0.169; for white (non-Hispanic) is 0.157; and for Hispanic
is 0.143. However, it is only 0.055 for Asian American. For resident
aliens, it is 0.017. The
situation in the corporate world is worse, much worse. All Asian
American CEOs of Fortune 500 companies, with one exception, started
the companies themselves.

Therefore, we, Asian Pacific Americans, wish to know
(1) If elected, will you direct the Labor Secretary to hold public
hearings regarding the validity of the huge amount of statistical data
strongly suggesting discriminatory practices against Asian Pacific
Americans in workplaces today?

(2) If the data were shown valid, will you issue a directive to the
Labor Department asking it to focus on enforcing Executive Order
11246 on behalf of Asian Pacific Americans, since in the past similar
efforts have already been made on behalf of women and other

(3) Two years after you have issued a directive described in item 2,
will you meet with a group of Asian Pacific American leaders, put
together jointly by 80-20 and the Labor Department, to review the
progress in extending equal opportunity to Asian Pacific Americans?

My answer to Question 1 above is (Yes/No)_______

My answer to Question 2 above is (Yes/No) _______

My answer to Question 3 above is (Yes/No) _______

Signature: _______________________ Date: _____________
(Candidate Name )
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

If our next president is a candidate who signs the above
document, APAs will get the same enforcement of 11246 as ALL the
other minorities. With that, in 10 years or less the ratio cited for
APA in the third parag. of the Questionnaire will NOT be the shameful
0.055 but instead be 0.15, an increase of 300%. Similar improvement
will occur in the corporate world, in law or accounting firms, in
federal and state governments !!!

A cover letter accompanies the above questionnaire. To see the
cover letter, visit .

We are on the verge of winning EQUAL OPPORTUNITY. Help 80-20
to help yourself and your children.
