LEARN from the blacks and/or Jews?

   Ask most Americans, "Would ABC have aired the offending segment on Kimmel's show, if the kid had said 'kill all Jews or blacks"? The answer: NO!

   So what may be their strengths?

   Blacks' strength is in their willingness to speak out, demonstrate and perhaps express their anger publicly. There are about 38 million blacks. They voted at least 9 to 1 for a Democratic presidential candidate for decades. So Dems are always with them.

   The Jewish strengths are NOT well-known to most Asian Ams, especially not to recent immigrants. Jewish Americans combined their clout in business, media, entertainment and politics to punish those who showed anti-Semitism. They prefer to achieve results QUIETLY, because they are often shockingly effective. They know that their effectiveness is, by now, well-known to politicians & nation's top decision makers! Boasting it to "average Joes" is neither called for nor wise. An example is what happened to Rick Sanchez of CNN.

   Rick, a CNN anchor, was asked during a radio show, whether Jon Stewart, a person Rick didn't like, was a minority owing to Jon's Jewish faith. Rick responded,

   "Yeah, very powerless people. [laughs] He's such a minority. I mean, you
know, please. What—are you kidding? I'm telling you that everybody who
runs CNN is a lot like Stewart, and a lot of people who run all the other
networks are a lot like Stewart. And to imply that somehow they, the
people in this country who are Jewish, are an oppressed minority?"

   The next day, Rick was fired by CNN. Click here to see it for yourself. Now think about the Jimmy Kimmel episode. Ponder!

   Most of you have never heard of AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Comm.) whose political influence is legendary. I'll not bore you here. However, you've seen on TV how Republican and Democratic presidential candidates competed to be the best friends of the Jewish and Israel.

   Which group should we emulate? Let's compare our group characteristics with those of Jews and blacks.

   We are almost there, if we want to emulate Jewish Ams. The biggest difference in Building-Blocks-of-Group-Clout is: donation habits.

   80-20 operates on a $100k annual budget while AIPAC's budget is $67 million. Money talks, especially in the hands of those who know how to use money legally to build up clout in politics, media and entertainment. Asian Ams already have a solid base in business.
If your family income is $100k/yr or up, please donate at least $100/yr for 5 years for our future. To donate, click here.

   In 28 days, 80-20 EF has raised about $1,000,000 over a 5 year period already. To read the names of some who have been extraordinarily generous, click here. Want to outdo them? That's the spirit! We compete with each other in everything, except in donation generosity to our own cause.

   DONATE NOW !    FORWARD please.
