80-20's 9th Best Accomplishment
If 80-20 didn't exist, how might your life be different?
If 80-20 didn't induce Abercrombie & Fitch to withdraw those
4 T-shirts, you may be walking pass some youths on the street or beach
wearing one of those T-shirts:
On the T-shirt are caricatured faces with slanted eyes and rice-paddy hats,
and "Wong Brothers Laundry Service -- Two Wongs Can Make It White."
Another t-shirt says "Abercrombie and Fitch Buddha Bash -- Get
Your Buddha on the Floor." Sacrilege against Buddhism?!
How would you like such an encounter? Will you feel a sharp pain in
your heart regretting our powerlessness to stop others from insulting us?
If A&F could do it to us, wiil other T-shirt producers imitate? Peerhaps,
they'd even compete to see who could insult Asian Ams the most.
What makes 80-20 so uniquely effective?
S. B. Woo's phone message to A&F CEO Michael Jefferies is
"Withdraw the t-shirt, we'll praise you. If not, 80-20 shall use
its email list of 700,000 Asian Ams families/individuals and
ask them to boycott A&F products. Indeed, the same message will
go out on the anniversary of this phone call in all subsequent years."
That email list represents AsAm Group Political Clout (GPC).
It is that GPC, organized by 80-20, that did the job for YOU.
NOTE: Student groups & Buddhist orgs have demonstrated
and protested for days by the time 80-20 decided to enter the
battle. We are glad to get A&F to see its mistake in 3 hours.
To the best of our knowledge, A&F C.O.O. Keith Johnson
called 80-20 PAC only, to relate its decision to withdraw
its T-shirts. However, we gladly acknowledge that efforts
by others ALSO contributed to the "happy ending".
How Is Our Community Responding to "Double or Die?"
Fatastically, thus far. 110 members joined in 1 week. If that
momentum continues, 80-20 will DOUBLE in one year. It all
depends on YOU. See how others are stepping up. See bottom
of this email.

Board EMPOWER YOU!
