對SCA5說不呼籲書

向SCA5說"不"呼籲書
尊敬的
各位的副秘書長,各位鄉親父老,
各位顧問,各位先進:
相信這兩周來,大家一定會聽到SCA5這個名詞,什麼是SCA5呢?SCA 是 Senate Constitutional Amendment 的縮寫。 SCA no. 5 是在加州參議院提出的加州憲法修正案 5.
在1996年加州通過了著名的209提案,也叫加州民權提案。該提案修改加州憲法,禁止州政府在公務員招募,公共服務合同簽訂,和公共教育中考慮種族,性別,和族群因素。這個提案讓加州成為全美第一個禁止公立大學以種族因素為錄取標準之一的州。(即僅以成績為錄取標準)在209提案通過後隨即很多州跟進,掀起了學校以成績為衡量標准的浪潮。
此次SCA 5 是想刪除掉209提案中任何提到 "公共教育" 的文字。實質是要求公立大學考慮種族,性別,族群的因素。
誰提出SCA 5?什麼目的?SCA 5 由西裔背景的加州參議員 Ed Hernandez提出。理由是加州大學中"少數族裔"比例太少,需要憲法允許公立大學錄取時候考慮種族背景,平均受教育的權力。
事實是什麼?是1996年加州通過209提案成為全美第一個禁止公立大學以種族因素為錄取標準之一的州後,加州大學系統中亞裔學生因為成績優秀錄取率較高,使得其比例大幅度上升(加州華人人口僅有15% 但加州大學系統裏卻有40%的華裔學生)而西裔和非裔學生則由於成績不達標大幅度減少。在支持SCA5的人們眼中,加州209 提案在大學錄取中取消種族因素是錯誤的,對西裔和非裔學生"不平等",因此應該立法保障西裔和非裔學生的入學名額,而不是任由亞裔"佔據名校的多數名額"。這個提案卻忽略了華裔乃至廣大亞裔也是少數族裔。而主流白人的人口根據成績入學率也相對較低的情況。
SCA5方向的最終目的,則是根據人口比例分配加州的大學教育資源,而不是成績。即招100學生的話,各種族學生僅和自己族群內學生進行競爭。那麼這個提案對重視教育的華裔乃至泛亞裔來說都是非常歧視性的。
作為亞裔族群之一的廣大華人,不管我們來自何處?面對這種影響深遠的提案,我們都應該表示我們的態度,有必要發出我們的聲音,而最有效的且直接的就是簽名連署向所在地區的民意反映,向白宮請願,清晰的表示我們對這個提案說"不"!
這不是個人行為,而是共同的行動,希望公告天下,一起努力!

Dear Mr. XXX,

I hereby urge you to vote NO to SCA-5! As SCA-5 will roll back the clock to the days when students were discriminated against based on their race. SCA-5 hide under the disguise of equal opportunity. However SCA-5 is in fact the antithesis of equal opportunity as it demands equal outcomes. But true equity demands fair outcomes for all. The injustice of disparities in any population is when equity is diminished. It is communism in essence since resources are to be divided equally. It will destroy the incentive to excel and compete and drag down U.S. competitiveness in the long run.

Lawmakers need to work on bills which applies to everyone regardless of their race for improvements in the quality of education for poor communities or for closing the gap where students have underachieved. What messages are we sending to our children that they should be treated differently because of their race, instead of their efforts and qualifications?

Therefore I strongly urge you to fight against SCA-5. I have a dream, do you? Everyone in our community will pay close attention to this matter.

Thank you,
XXX

Dear Mr. XXX:

Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. This bill is to include race as a factor to provide preference in college admissions. I firmly believe that this is against the fundamental principles of U.S. law and the American legal system. All men are equal regardless of race.

Therefore, I strongly urge you to vote NO on this matter. Your vote is very important to everyone in our community.

Thank you,
XXX

Dear Mr. XXX,

Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. SCA-5 proposed using race as a factor in college admissions. I urge you to fight against SCA-5. Just as Martin Luther King, Jr. said 41 years ago, no children should be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. Your child(ren)deserve this dream. Every American child deserves this dream. Don't you agree? It is about right or wrong. This is where the difference comes between a politician and a statesman/woman.

It's your choice which side you're on. I have a dream, do you? The people who shares the same dream as Martin Luther King, Jr. will remember your choice. They will decide who they vote for, who they send money to, and who they canvass for.

Best regards,
XXX

Dear Mr. XXX,

Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. It is pure racism! My kids future is as important as anyone's kids. Why two individuals at the same level of education might differ in their college admissions? What century do we live in? This is supposedly a country that believes in equality.

I strongly urge you to fight against SCA-5. Otherwise, no more votes and donations from me and all my relatives and friends for you or any Democrats. Everyone in our community will pay close attention to this issue.

Respectfully,
XXX

Dear Mr. XXX,

Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. Objection to any law that allow any discrimination against, or granting preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race in the operation of public education. Racial discrimination is wrong, whichever way it goes, in whatever name. If diversity is the point of preferences, why only in college admissions? Why not in the recruitment process of government agencies? in entertainment, in sports...

I strongly urge you to fight against SCA-5. All men are equal regardless of race. Otherwise, no more votes and donations from me and all my relatives and friends for you or any Democrats. Everyone in our community will pay close attention to this issue.

Best regards,
XXX

Dear Mr. XXX,

Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. I am impressed that this clear violation of constitutional law could even pass the senate! What are senators doing? How do we explain to our children that what they've been taught on equal opportunity is no longer true. It has been amended. Martin Luther King, Jr. said I have a dream that my four little 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. But it is no longer in accord with reality. Why don't we amend the employment standards after college admissions? So those who are entitled to privileges in admission could automatically get government jobs?

I strongly urge you to fight against SCA-5. All men are equal regardless of race. Otherwise, no more votes and donations from me and all my relatives and friends for you or any Democrats. Everyone in our community will pay close attention to this issue.

Respectfully,
XXX

Dear Mr. XXX,

Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. This bill is total racism. What a degradation! It's a waste of public money for those senators working on this nonsense. The rational behind the bill is totally ridiculous. We believe in the right of education for all Californians. California should not enrolled students based on race rather than qualifications.

I strongly urge you to fight against SCA-5. Otherwise, no more votes and donations from me and all my relatives and friends for you or any Democrats. Everyone in our community will pay close attention to this issue.

Respectfully,
XXX

Dear XXX,

Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. "I have a dream that my four little 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."---Martin Luther King, Jr. Do we helping Martin Luther King's dream(which is my dream too)? Do we punish hard working students by racial preferences? Is this the right way to promote better education for California?

I strongly urge you to fight against SCA-5. Otherwise, no more votes and donations from me and all my relatives and friends for you or any Democrats. Everyone in our community will pay close attention to this issue.

Respectfully,
XXX

Dear XXX,

Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. The only barrier for student of any colors for higher education is their work enthusiasm. How about we do the same thing for the State Assembly? Candidate must collect certain amount of votes(scores in S.A.T.)to be qualified, then by using qualified candidates' race and ethnic background to decide if he/she can become a member of the California State Assembly. Because "We need to ensure that the State Assembly reflects our changing population".

I strongly urge you to fight against SCA-5. Students should be admitted based on merits, not race! Otherwise, no more votes and donations from me and all my relatives and friends for you or any Democrats. Everyone in our community will pay close attention to this issue.

Respectfully,
XXX
