NON-Asian Americans think that Asian Americans (AsAms) are more loyal
to our respective "old countries" than the USA. See evidence at
So long as that is the case, we are UNLIKELY to win
1) equal opportunity in workplaces, and
2) equal justice.
That is one reason 80-20 urges you to DISPLAY A FLAG in
front of your homes & businesses on July 4th.
To see how popular 80-20's flags project is, visit
http://www.80-20initiative.net/flagproject.html . You'll find
o where to buy a flag,
o how to organize a BIG "Sea of Flags" project in your community,
o how much publicity came from mainstream and ethnic media, &
more will come if you organize your community project,
o what are the contents of 80-20's radio ads in Korean, Vietnamese, &
Chinese (Cantonese and Mandarin). Such ads are broadcast in
many big cities, especially those in CA, thanks to your dues.
Besides being pragmatic, there are REAL REASONS for
celebrating July 4th -- THE BLESSINGS OF LIBERTY IN USA:
o You can make money any way you want, provided it is legal, &
spend it any way you want.
o You can take any political position including criticizing Pres. Bush,
as 80-20 did for his non-enforcement of Executive Order 11246 for
AsAms, WITHOUT PUNITY.
o You can choose to leave USA if you want; stay if you want.
o You can practice any religion you want, including being a Buddhist or an atheist
So let's hoist a flag to celebrate the birth of a GREAT NATION.
HOWEVER, America is not perfect. AsAms don't yet enjoy
1) EQUAL JUSTICE -- recall Wen Ho Lee and Captain James Yee
2) EQUAL OPPORTUNITY in workplaces, on which 80-20 has shocking data to share with you, after July 4th is over.
Join 80-20. It is EFFECTIVE & ALWAYS FOCUSED on the most important
issues facing AsAms. Any US citizen or P.R. may join.
