下面是请愿文章的范例:
Dear XXX:
I am writing this email to bring to your attention on upcoming vote on SCA-5
, authored by Sen. Ed Hernandez. This bill is essentially another effort
trying to insert race as a factor in future University of California
admission. I firmly believe that this is against the fundamental belief of
US legal system that everyone should be equal regardless his/her race.
Therefore, I strongly urge you to vote NO on this matter. Our community will
watch this vote very closely.
Thank you,
XXX
Dear XXX,
As you know, SCA-5 proposes using race as a factor for admission decision
making for California public university system. I strongly urge you to fight
against SCA-5. Just as Martin Luther King 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. The answer
differentiates a statesman from those politicians.
It's your choice which side you would like to be. Every voter who shares the
same dream with Martin Luther King will watch your choice, and decide who
they are going to vote for next time. Therefore, I strongly urge you to vote
NO on this matter. Our community will watch this vote very closely.
Best regards,
XXX

新写一篇sample
Dear XXX,
Please vote No on SCA-5. What the SCA-5 acutually does is sheer idiocy and
doesn't make the slightest bit of sense. It's amazing that we still judge
people by their race. Is this really how we want to educate our future
generations? Is there ever going to be an end to racism?
It is in fact a no win situation. Children go to schools and have their GPAs
raised due to race. They later go to colleges based on fictitious GPAs.
Unfortunately professors won't be on board with this plan. Most likely they
won't be able to keep up, rank toward the bottom of the class, and quit or
drop out from schools. What a disaster it would be? This is the problem that
we call "mismatch". It is a problem verified by research.
Say No to SCA-5! Preferential treatment based on race in college admission
is not the right practice. California should not enrolled students based on
race rather than qualifications. 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.
Yours truly,
XXX

我再写一篇sample, 最近这几天加了好几篇
Dear XXX,
I strongly urge you to vote NO on SCA-5. Martin Luther King Jr. passed away
46 years ago. What happened to "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."? Judging students by
their skin colors is itself inherently discriminatory. We are living
individuals! We represent only ourselves. No one is over represented here.
We got admitted into universities after working our asses off for years. No
one has the right to discriminate against any individuals based on their
race. The only way to create a society with true racial equality is to stop
considering race in the admission process.
Science and higher education should be "color-blind". Decisions based on
race are not the road to prosperity, equality, or stronger feelings of self
esteem in individuals. Selections based on one's color, not one's
achievements and skills, is only working to separate our society further. It
is ill-advised to set different standards for students based on the color
of their skin. Separating kids only makes them feel inferior and that should
’nt be acceptable to anyone. We ought not say that for some ethnic students
the goal is below some other ethnic students.
Therefore I'm asking you to vote NO on SCA5! Otherwise, I think the Democrat
Party has gone over the edge and need to be voted out. Who will demand
equality and justice for all? We are a nation that was built upon the very
principles that all men, and I emphasize all are created equal. Everyone in
our community will pay close attention to this matter.
Yours Faithfully,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I write today to urge you to take immediate action against SCA-5. No one has
the right to discriminate against any individuals based on their race. Just
as Abraham Lincoln declared in his Gettysburg Address, years ago our
fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty,
and dedicated to the proposition that “all men are created equal.”
You cannot change facts simply by repeating a lie over and over again. The
color of someone’s skin doesn’t tell you anything about the traits that
qualify them for college. The color of someone’s skin also does not tell
you anything about that individual’s socioeconomic background. Students
from impoverished backgrounds need special consideration to succeed, no
matter their race.
Say no to racism! Say no to SCA-5. Fight for what generations before us have
fought for. SCA-5 is wrapped up in a claim of racial equality and diversity
, but it is pure evil and a fundamental violation of what true racial
equality means. If Democrats pass SCA-5 in the Assembly, tons of people in
California who have morals will hold this against the entire Democrat Party.
Everyone in our community take this matter seriously.
Sincerely yours,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I sincerely urge you to vote against SCA-5. President Obama said recently “
Billions of people in India and China are striving hard to out-educate
Americans in mathematics and technology. And every year brings more research
showing them pulling ahead. We live in a 21st century global economy. And
in a global economy, jobs can go anywhere." The United States is facing
unprecedented economic and intellectual competition from countries around
the world. This competition will not be decided on the basis of product
price and assortment but in our classrooms and universities. Technology is
shaping the future of the United States and changing our world dramatically.
According to American Civil Rights Coalition, "In the 17 years Prop 209 has
been in effect, California has led the way towards color-blind government
and increased graduation rates in higher education by using race and gender
neutral policies." Prop 209 results in a significant increase in graduation
rates in higher education. This is exactly what California needs to do.
Qualified college graduates ensure an educated workforce for tomorrow's
economy. If we grant preferential treatment based on race in college
admission, history tells us that fewer students will graduate from colleges.
Employers will not be able to find workers with the qualified skills to
fill an increasingly technical job market. This will affect the quality of
the workforce and the state's economic health. Companies will have to spend
more hire skilled workers, potentially from foreign countries, invest more
heavily in workforce development or even outsource jobs overseas. Therefore
SCA-5 is not in America's best interest.
I, therefore, am writing to urge you to vote against SCA-5. SCA-5 will hurt
our economy in the long run. Everyone in California will suffer from short-
sighted policy-making which holds back our growth. If Democrats pass SCA-5
in the Assembly, I'm sure a lot of people who have knowledge will be
enormously upset.
Yours truly,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I urge you to take immediate steps against SCA-5. SCA-5 is schemed to change
the California educational system. SCA-5 will eliminate the right to be
protected against all kinds of discrimination in education. Making things
even worse is the fact that SCA-5 is merely the first step towards a
terrible path. SCA-5 would result in mandated discrimination against certain
students applying to UC campuses.
From a purely practical standpoint, a policy of rejecting high-performing
students based on their ethnicity is a self-defeating idea. It goes against
everything our supposedly enlightened state stands for. Fairness is a key
principle upon which our educational system should be based. When students
work hard so they can get into a good school, they should have equal
opportunity at admission regardless of ethnicity or gender. SCA-5 will
undermine this basic principle of fairness.
In addition, according to numerous studies, minority students might feel
stigmatized by affirmative action, believing they were admitted on the basis
of their group status, not individual achievement or ability. These
students often consider themselves second-class students, and feel other
students see them in the same light. They are more likely to fail in school
and drop out. Many of our K-12 schools are failing our students, leaving
them unprepared for college. No student should suffer a huge fall in life
because the school the government has chosen for them is not a good fit.
Everyone loses when students drop out.
I hope that our legislators will have courage to reject SCA-5. You will win
my vote if you vote no to SAC-5. Otherwise I will vote against Democrats
from now on and will advise all friends and family to do the same.
Cordially yours,
XXX

这里再写一篇sample, 继续努力
Dear XXX,
I urge you to vote against SCA 5. This bill, the consequence is that it
actually allows our public schools to use race and gender to discriminate
against students. Is that really where we want to go? We teach children the
importance of fairness. We teach children about the evils of injustice
about racism and discrimination. We inspire children with the stories of
people like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela who worked for
justice. Now truth has become lies and lies have become truth. What words
are we using to teach our children that they should be treated differently
because of their race, instead of their efforts and qualifications?
At the core of making American better is the fundamental question of whether
every American has an equal chance. Not a preferential chance, but an equal
chance. The emphasis on fairness leads to continuous improvement and a high
level of competitiveness. In the United States, fundamental principles
ought to matter. And, there is not more basic than the right to equal
treatment under the law. We judge students only on the basis of their merit
and character, not on the basis of their race or skin color.
Therefore I am writing to urge your immediate action to rescind SCA 5.
Please stop racial discrimination! If SCA 5 receives approval in the State
Assembly, I will vote just to vote against the Democrats no matter what
happens. In addition, I will ask my family and friends to do the same.
Yours most sincerely,
XXX

Dear XXX,
Please figth against SCA-5! Equality has clearly played an important role in
American history. When the founders of the United States of America wrote
in the Declaration of Independence the most sacred notions that "all men are
created equal". They were not ignoring the obvious differences that make
people individuals. Their differences in appearance, personality, aptitude,
skills and character. This essential equality means that no one is born with
a natural right to rule over others without their consent, and that
governments are obligated to apply the law equally to everyone.
The American Dream has always stood for the ideals of freedom, equality, and
opportunity available to every American from the time it entered the
national lexicon. Is the American Dream attainable by all Americans? Most
Americans perceive a college education as the ticket to the American Dream.
However with the passing of SCA-5, this fundamental principle of equality is
violated. It is racial discrimination at its finest. It's racial
discrimination in its purest form. Is this your American Dream? Why has our
state become so lame? The granting of preferential treatment based on race
is not the American way. Education should be color-blind. If you work hard
you get what you deserve.
Please!!! Say No to SCA-5. We need to protect the equal education rights of
our youth. Lawmakers should draft bills to improve education for poor
children regardless of their race. If Democrats pass the proposed SCA5 in
the Assembly, I will vote against any and all Democrats as Democrats are out
of touch with the American People and American Dream.

I am writing to express my unreserved opposition to SCA-5 on the grounds
that it will lead to state-sponsored discrimination. In the development of
modern American history, our state and nation have participated in
discrimination against some of our own citizens. During World War II, the
internment of Japanese-American citizens in prison camps represented a low
point in the history of our civil rights. The federal government detained U.
S. citizens just because they are a member of a minority race.
SCA-5 will remove the portion of our State Constitution which prohibits
discrimination in the area of public education. By doing this, SCA-5 is
weakening the laws against discrimination that protect California today. An
applicant's race, color, religion, national origin, or sex will make the
difference in whether or not a student is admitted. Well, that's just Un
American! If you worked hard, you should not be denied your dream and others
should not reap the rewards. Discrimination is the opposite of who we are
as a state and as a nation.
In additoin, the students would be better served if California offered them
the choice of which school best suits their needs. Accoring to many studies,
preferences hurt underrepresented minorities far more than they help them.
At the heart of affirmative action’s failure is a simple phenomenon called
mismatch. Moreover, while certainly we want all to get an education, we must
also maintain the competitive edge of our University of California system
schools. By regulating admission on anything other than merit would cause
great harm to the level of excellence we enjoy from our universities.
Therefore I urge a "No" vote on SCA-5. The people of California deserve a
government that supports their hard work and shares their hopes for the
future. Otherwise I will vote against and encourage others to vote against
Democrats who support this bill.
Yours very truly,
XXX

我对写SCA-5请愿信的心得
写这些请愿信重要的是文章内容尽量不要有族裔色彩, 这样效果反而适得其反, 也就是
文章内容尽量避免有亚裔, 华裔, 韩裔, 西语裔, 非洲裔, 白人这样的字眼出现, 能够
避免尽量避免. 不然收到文章的对象认为你是从族裔立场出发, 而不是从公益立场出发
来写这封请愿信, 效果因此大减, 读完因为本身所属族裔不同, 就很没有说服力. 所以
如果真的有需要用到任何族裔名称的字眼, 也请用在客观的事实资料上, 尽量不要加上
个人主观的判断.
要说服对方第一种方法可以从道德制高点出发, 也就是强调使用种族来决定入学资格的
荒谬, 这里可以引些名人的话或是过去的历史来增加说服力, 例如马丁路德, 曼德拉,
林肯, 独立宣言等, 另外还有当然最好用的我有一个梦演说或是美国梦等, 说明种族歧
视的错误, 来谴责对方. 并强调人人平等的重要性. 最近也出现使用二战期间日裔美国
人被关进集中营, 或是排华法案历史来说服对方的文章.
而第二种方法要从对方的立场出发, 陈述对方反对SCA-5能获得的益处, 这样对方才会
真的被说服, 不过这些写法都是比较高难度的技巧, 不一定要使用, 如果要写可以参考
我写的范例. 首先是平等才能促进竞争, 科学进步, 使得加州在经济上有竞争力, 大家
未来的生活才能更好, 工作机会增加. 其次是加州大学才能继续保持竞争力, 如果加州
大学的排名下降, 这对住在加州的人都是损害. 再来就是所谓的Mismatch问题, 从客观
的历史资料来验证, 若使用种族来录取学生, 会使得学生整体毕业率下降. 因为这些因
为族裔因素而入学的学生, 实际上本身能力并不足以周遭同学竞争, 他们自己也知道自
己是因为族裔因素被录取的, 而不是因为自己的能力, 因此也产生自卑. 研究显示这些
Underprepared准备不足的学生常在班上都是垫底, 很高比例因此被退学或是自己申请
停学, 这对他们自身来说, 反而是场灾难, 已经丧失制定这个政策当初的用意, 因为当
初如果按照自己本身能力申请, 进入适合自己的学校, 和自己差不多水准的人竞争, 反
而能顺利毕业, 人生会更顺利.
第三种方法是分享自己的人生经验, 还有周遭友人小孩的感想, 这部份我就没有办法写
范例, 因为每个人的遭遇不同, 这也很容易说服对方, 特别是要用低姿态来博取对方同
情. 例如写自己移民的背景, 还有对美国梦的向往, 这种写法就可能会写到自己的族裔
, 这时候用较广泛的Asian American亚裔比用较狭隘的Chinese American容易获得对方
共鸣, 不要对别的族裔有任何的批评, 可以尽量试着从小孩的观点语言出发, 或是朋友
间对于自己小孩的未来的忧虑来着手, 较容易说服对方.
最后当然是强调对方支持SCA-5的坏处来说服对方, 第一个最简单的我不会投票支持你,
可以说我本来支持你或是不投票, 但是我现在因为SCA-5一定要投票反对, 而且将来会
一直投票反对, 这样对方感觉到是个损失. 第二个就是强调会去说服亲人朋友投票反对
, 或是我们整个社区都很关心这个教育或平等问题, 不过尽量也不要出现族裔名称的字
眼较好, 稍微暗示对方就够了, 就算要用也要向前面一样, 使用亚裔也不要使用华裔.
第三个当然就是金钱, 可以强调不会再捐献, 如果曾经捐献那是更好, 能够提出捐献的
历史就非常有说服力, 对方钱如果因此可能减少, 当然是非常痛苦.
我写的这些范例都是从公益的观点出发, 如果觉得自己写的不好请尽量引用, 常自己写
些文章英文能力就会进步, 这也是很好的锻炼. 有时间我会尽量再写些请愿信范本, 新
写的我通常是把文章放在http://nosca5.blogspot.com/文章范本部分最上面, 看Blog的一定是最新的, 因为我一定是最先更改Blog的部份, 其他不一定会改.

全美国华人行动起来, 同心协力对抗SCA-5种族歧视.
大家不要觉得今天不是发生在我这里, 发生在加州就觉得无所谓, 不关我的事, 海外中
国人应该团结一致, 才能对抗种族歧视, 一起行动, 大家应该要效法犹太人团结的精神
, 不要等到这趋势蔓延到其他州时, 才后悔莫及, 怎么样对抗SCA-5种族歧视呢? 下面
有教你要怎样做的方法.
本文的网路版本在这里: http://nosca5.blogspot.com/2014/02/sca5.html
反对SCA-5具体有效的步骤, 请转发
从我做起, 从现在做起! 我们还来得及反对SCA5. 目前, 加州众议院的80席中, 有55席
民主党, 25席共和党. 对这个法案SCA5的支持是党派分票, 所以我们只需要保证 2个以
上民主党议员勇敢地站出来, 投票反对, 我们就可以让法案胎死腹中. 现在我们可以做
的是写信给代表我们选区的加州众议员, 去他们的网站给他们写.
Step 1: http://nosca5.blogspot.com/2014/03/sca-5_9.html
上面连结最上面有两个请愿投票, 有时间先去投票, 这两个网站都需要注册, 但是
Change.org和Whitehouse.gov是最常见的请愿网站, 将来一定该还有用到的机会, 花点
时间注册并不吃亏. 不過必須強調這兩個投票實際效果是零, 並不能解決問題, 其主要
功能就僅僅是壮大声势.
Step 2: http://findyourrep.legislature.ca.gov/
住在加州的朋友先寻找自己选区的州众议员
Step 3:
可能被影响的民主党州众议员列表, 这一份名单有被精心筛选过, 确定是机率比较高,
不会让大家浪费子弹, 集中火力攻击, 先写好篇文章, 这篇下面有很多范例, 不想写直
接找一篇贴上发给对方也没关系, 最重要是让对方了解有这么多人重视这个问题, 内容
其实不重要, 简单表达意思就够. 但最好是自己能添加一些自己的意见, 能够写一篇自
己的文章是最好, 反正能够发那么多遍, 多花点时间在这里也是值得. 然后将这封信用
Email再加上Facebook用Message发给下面列表所有的人, 我自己试过发一遍, 全部发完
应该不会超过15分钟.
其中中间这种https://lcmspubcontact.lc.ca.gov/地址的要发比较特别, 一定必须要
是填该选区地址, 才能写电子邮件给他们, 不然不会让你发, 所以如果不是自己选区或
是有可用地址的就不用了.
另外除了最简单的发电子邮件外, 也可以打电话, Fax传真, 登门拜访都可以视情况运
用联络.

下面是请愿文章的范例, 电子邮件标题要清楚简洁表达文章内容, 例如Please vote "
NO" on SCA-5!, 发文章时称呼对方用First Name就可以, 写自己的名字的时候最好是
First Name+Last Name, 这样看起来比较正式有力.
写这些请愿信重要的是文章内容尽量不要有族裔色彩, 这样效果反而适得其反, 也就是

Dear XXX,
I am writing to express my unreserved opposition to SCA-5 on the grounds
that it will lead to state-sponsored discrimination. In the development of
modern American history, our state and nation have participated in
discrimination against some of our own citizens. During World War II, the
internment of Japanese-American citizens in prison camps represented a low
point in the history of our civil rights. The federal government detained U.
S. citizens just because they are a member of a minority race.
SCA-5 will remove the portion of our State Constitution which prohibits
discrimination in the area of public education. By doing this, SCA-5 is
weakening the laws against discrimination that protect California today. An
applicant's race, color, religion, national origin, or sex will make the
difference in whether or not a student is admitted. Well, that's just Un-
American! If you worked hard, you should not be denied your dream and others
should not reap the rewards. Discrimination is the opposite of who we are
as a state and as a nation.
In additoin accoring to many studies, preferences hurt underrepresented
minorities far more than they help them. At the heart of affirmative action
’s failure is a simple phenomenon called mismatch. The students would be
better served if California offered them the choice of which school best
suits their needs. Moreover, while certainly we want all to get an education
, we must also maintain the competitive edge of our University of California
system schools. By regulating admission on anything other than merit would
cause great harm to the level of excellence we enjoy from our universities.
Therefore I urge a "No" vote on SCA-5. The people of California deserve a
government that supports their hard work and shares their hopes for the
future. Otherwise I will vote against and encourage others to vote against
Democrats who support this bill.
Yours very truly,
XXX
Dear XXX,
I urge you to vote against SCA 5. This bill, the consequence is that it
actually allows our public schools to use race and gender to discriminate
against students. Is that really where we want to go? We teach children the
importance of fairness. We teach children about the evils of injustice
about racism and discrimination. We inspire children with the stories of
people like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela who worked for
justice. Now truth has become lies and lies have become truth. What words
are we using to teach our children that they should be treated differently
because of their race, instead of their efforts and qualifications?
At the core of making American better is the fundamental question of whether
every American has an equal chance. Not a preferential chance, but an equal
chance. The emphasis on fairness leads to continuous improvement and a high
level of competitiveness. In the United States, fundamental principles
ought to matter. And, there is not more basic than the right to equal
treatment under the law. We judge students only on the basis of their merit
and character, not on the basis of their race or skin color.
Therefore I am writing to urge your immediate action to rescind SCA 5.
Please stop racial discrimination! If SCA 5 receives approval in the State
Assembly, I will vote just to vote against the Democrats no matter what
happens. In addition, I will ask my family and friends to do the same.
Yours most sincerely,
XXX
Dear XXX,
I urge you to take immediate steps against SCA-5. SCA-5 is schemed to change
the California educational system. SCA-5 will eliminate the right to be
protected against all kinds of discrimination in education. Making things
even worse is the fact that SCA-5 is merely the first step towards a
terrible path. SCA-5 would result in mandated discrimination against certain
students applying to UC campuses.
From a purely practical standpoint, a policy of rejecting high-performing
students based on their ethnicity is a self-defeating idea. It goes against
everything our supposedly enlightened state stands for. Fairness is a key
principle upon which our educational system should be based. When students
work hard so they can get into a good school, they should have equal
opportunity at admission regardless of ethnicity or gender. SCA-5 will
undermine this basic principle of fairness.
In addition, according to numerous studies, minority students might feel
stigmatized by affirmative action, believing they were admitted on the basis
of their group status, not individual achievement or ability. These
students often consider themselves second-class students, and feel other
students see them in the same light. They are more likely to fail in school
and drop out. Many of our K-12 schools are failing our students, leaving
them unprepared for college. No student should suffer a huge fall in life
because the school the government has chosen for them is not a good fit.
Everyone loses when students drop out.
I hope that our legislators will have courage to reject SCA-5. You will win
my vote if you vote no to SAC-5. Otherwise I will vote against Democrats
from now on and will advise all friends and family to do the same.
Cordially yours,
XXX
Dear XXX,
I sincerely urge you to vote against SCA-5. President Obama said recently “
Billions of people in India and China are striving hard to out-educate
Americans in mathematics and technology. And every year brings more research
showing them pulling ahead. We live in a 21st century global economy. And
in a global economy, jobs can go anywhere." The United States is facing
unprecedented economic and intellectual competition from countries around
the world. This competition will not be decided on the basis of product
price and assortment but in our classrooms and universities. Technology is
shaping the future of the United States and changing our world dramatically.
According to American Civil Rights Coalition, "In the 17 years Prop 209 has
been in effect, California has led the way towards color-blind government
and increased graduation rates in higher education by using race and gender
neutral policies." Prop 209 results in a significant increase in graduation
rates in higher education. This is exactly what California needs to do.
Qualified college graduates ensure an educated workforce for tomorrow's
economy. If we grant preferential treatment based on race in college
admission, history tells us that fewer students will graduate from colleges.
Employers will not be able to find workers with the qualified skills to
fill an increasingly technical job market. This will affect the quality of
the workforce and the state's economic health. Companies will have to spend
more hire skilled workers, potentially from foreign countries, invest more
heavily in workforce development or even outsource jobs overseas. Therefore
SCA-5 is not in America's best interest.
I, therefore, am writing to urge you to vote against SCA-5. SCA-5 will hurt
our economy in the long run. Everyone in California will suffer from short-
sighted policy-making which holds back our growth. If Democrats pass SCA-5
in the Assembly, I'm sure a lot of people who have knowledge will be
enormously upset.
Yours truly,
XXX
Dear XXX,
I write today to urge you to take immediate action against SCA-5. No one has
the right to discriminate against any individuals based on their race. Just
as Abraham Lincoln declared in his Gettysburg Address, years ago our
fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty,
and dedicated to the proposition that “all men are created equal.”
You cannot change facts simply by repeating a lie over and over again. The
color of someone’s skin doesn’t tell you anything about the traits that
qualify them for college. The color of someone’s skin also does not tell
you anything about that individual’s socioeconomic background. Students
from impoverished backgrounds need special consideration to succeed, no
matter their race.
Say no to racism! Say no to SCA-5. Fight for what generations before us have
fought for. SCA-5 is wrapped up in a claim of racial equality and diversity
, but it is pure evil and a fundamental violation of what true racial
equality means. If Democrats pass SCA-5 in the Assembly, tons of people in
California who have morals will hold this against the entire Democrat Party.
Everyone in our community take this matter seriously.
Sincerely yours,
XXX
Dear XXX,
I strongly urge you to vote NO on SCA-5. Martin Luther King Jr. passed away
46 years ago. What happened to "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."? Judging students by
their skin colors is itself inherently discriminatory. We are living
individuals! We represent only ourselves. No one is over represented here.
We got admitted into universities after working our asses off for years. No
one has the right to discriminate against any individuals based on their
race. The only way to create a society with true racial equality is to stop
considering race in the admission process.
Science and higher education should be "color-blind". Decisions based on
race are not the road to prosperity, equality, or stronger feelings of self
esteem in individuals. Selections based on one's color, not one's
achievements and skills, is only working to separate our society further. It
is ill-advised to set different standards for students based on the color
of their skin. Separating kids only makes them feel inferior and that should
’nt be acceptable to anyone. We ought not say that for some ethnic students
the goal is below some other ethnic students.
Therefore I'm asking you to vote NO on SCA5! Otherwise, I think the Democrat
Party has gone over the edge and need to be voted out. Who will demand
equality and justice for all? We are a nation that was built upon the very
principles that all men, and I emphasize all are created equal. Everyone in
our community will pay particular attention to this matter.
Yours Faithfully,
XXX
Dear XXX,
Please figth against SCA-5! Equality has clearly played an important role in
American history. When the founders of the United States of America wrote
in the Declaration of Independence the most sacred notions that "all men are
created equal". They were not ignoring the obvious differences that make
people individuals. Their differences in appearance, personality, aptitude,
skills and character. This essential equality means that no one is born with
a natural right to rule over others without their consent, and that
governments are obligated to apply the law equally to everyone.
The American Dream has always stood for the ideals of freedom, equality, and
opportunity available to every American from the time it entered the
national lexicon. Is the American Dream attainable by all Americans? Most
Americans perceive a college education as the ticket to the American Dream.
However with the passing of SCA-5, this fundamental principle of equality is
violated. It is racial discrimination at its finest. It's racial
discrimination in its purest form. Is this your American Dream? Why has our
state become so lame? The granting of preferential treatment based on race
is not the American way. Education should be color-blind. If you work hard
you get what you deserve.
Please!!! Say No to SCA-5. We need to protect the equal education rights of
our youth. Lawmakers should draft bills to improve education for poor
children regardless of their race. If Democrats pass the proposed SCA5 in
the Assembly, I will vote against any and all Democrats as Democrats are out
of touch with the American People and American Dream.
Best Regards,
XXX
Dear XXX,
Please vote No on SCA-5. What the SCA-5 acutually does is sheer idiocy and
doesn't make the slightest bit of sense. It's amazing that we still judge
people by their race. Is this really how we want to educate our future
generations? Is there ever going to be an end to racism?
It is in fact a no win situation. Children go to schools and have their GPAs
raised due to race. They later go to colleges based on fictitious GPAs.
Unfortunately professors won't be on board with this plan. Most likely they
won't be able to keep up, rank toward the bottom of the class, and quit or
drop out from schools. What a disaster it would be? This is the problem that
we call "mismatch". It is a problem verified by research.
Say No to SCA-5! Preferential treatment based on race in college admission
is not the right practice. California should not enrolled students based on
race rather than qualifications. 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.
Yours truly,
XXX
Dear XXX,
I strongly urge you to vote NO on SCA-5. This bill against our
constitutional belief that all men are created equal. In addition it against
the "American Dream". That dream of a land in which life should be better
and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to
ability or achievement.
The fundamental flaw in SCA-5 is racial preferences in college admissions
harm their intended beneficiaries. We refer to this problem as "mismatch".
It is a problem documented by a vast and growing array of research. It will
place students in environments where they can neither learn nor compete
effectively. As a result, students quit or drop out from schools. These same
students would thrive had they gone to less competitive schools. As such
racial preferences lead to devastated outcomes.
In addition, having underprepared students entering colleges would greatly
diminish the quality of education. This is a lose-lose scenario. No one
should be allowed to damage our elite University of California system. Once
it is damaged it is really difficult to rebuild. Going to college is a
privilege, not a right. You would have to work hard to earn a spot.
Therefore I'm asking you to vote NO on SCA5! It is the right thing to do.
Preferential treatment based on race in college admission is not the right
practice. The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential
treatment on the basis of race.
Yours truly,
XXX
Dear 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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
Sincerely yours,

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.
Yours truly,
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.
Sincerely yours,
XXX
Dear XXX,
Please vote NO on SCA 5 as it is a racist bill. It promotes discrimination
by judging people based on their race. Admission to any school among other
things, should solely based on their own merit and not on their color, race,
and etc. I believe preferential treatment based on race in college
admission is not the right practice. In addition it violates the Equal
Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment.
I strongly urge you to vote "No" on SCA 5. Students deserve have an equal
opportunity in the college admission process regardless of their race. Thank
you for listening to the voice of your people.
Respectfully,
XXX
Dear XXX,
Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. This is ridiculous and is so wrong! This is a
reverse discrimination. This proposition limits the opportunity of certain
kids to attend the University of California because of their races. Higher
education should be offered to those who can do it.
I strongly urge you to fight against SCA-5. Students deserve have an equal
opportunity in the college admission process regardless of their race. I
always support Democrats. But if Democrats pass SCA-5 in the Assembly, I
will immediately switch my support to Republicans in future elections. Most
people in my community rank education as the most important policy issue.

Dear XXX,
Please vote No on SCA-5. What the SCA-5 acutually does is sheer idiocy and
doesn't make the slightest bit of sense. It's amazing that we still judge
people by their race. Is this really how we want to educate our future
generations? Is there ever going to be an end to racism?
It is in fact a no win situation. Children go to schools and have their GPAs
raised due to race. They later go to colleges based on fictitious GPAs.
Unfortunately professors won't be on board with this plan. Most likely they
won't be able to keep up, rank toward the bottom of the class, and quit or
drop out from schools. What a disaster it would be? This is the problem that
we call "mismatch". It is a problem verified by research.
Say No to SCA-5! Preferential treatment based on race in college admission
is not the right practice. California should not enrolled students based on
race rather than qualifications. 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.
Yours truly,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I strongly urge you to vote NO on SCA-5. Martin Luther King Jr. passed away
46 years ago. What happened to "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."? Judging students by
their skin colors is itself inherently discriminatory. We are living
individuals! We represent only ourselves. No one is over represented here.
We got admitted into universities after working our asses off for years. No
one has the right to discriminate against any individuals based on their
race. The only way to create a society with true racial equality is to stop
considering race in the admission process.
Science and higher education should be "color-blind". Decisions based on
race are not the road to prosperity, equality, or stronger feelings of self
esteem in individuals. Selections based on one's color, not one's
achievements and skills, is only working to separate our society further. It
is ill-advised to set different standards for students based on the color
of their skin. Separating kids only makes them feel inferior and that should
’nt be acceptable to anyone. We ought not say that for some ethnic students
the goal is below some other ethnic students.
Therefore I'm asking you to vote NO on SCA5! Otherwise, I think the Democrat
Party has gone over the edge and need to be voted out. Who will demand
equality and justice for all? We are a nation that was built upon the very
principles that all men, and I emphasize all are created equal. Everyone in
our community will pay close attention to this matter.
Yours Faithfully,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I write today to urge you to take immediate action against SCA-5. No one has
the right to discriminate against any individuals based on their race. Just
as Abraham Lincoln declared in his Gettysburg Address, years ago our
fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty,
and dedicated to the proposition that “all men are created equal.”
You cannot change facts simply by repeating a lie over and over again. The
color of someone’s skin doesn’t tell you anything about the traits that
qualify them for college. The color of someone’s skin also does not tell
you anything about that individual’s socioeconomic background. Students
from impoverished backgrounds need special consideration to succeed, no
matter their race.
Say no to racism! Say no to SCA-5. Fight for what generations before us have
fought for. SCA-5 is wrapped up in a claim of racial equality and diversity
, but it is pure evil and a fundamental violation of what true racial
equality means. If Democrats pass SCA-5 in the Assembly, tons of people in
California who have morals will hold this against the entire Democrat Party.
Everyone in our community take this matter seriously.
Sincerely yours,

Dear XXX,
I sincerely urge you to vote against SCA-5. President Obama said recently “
Billions of people in India and China are striving hard to out-educate
Americans in mathematics and technology. And every year brings more research
showing them pulling ahead. We live in a 21st century global economy. And
in a global economy, jobs can go anywhere." The United States is facing
unprecedented economic and intellectual competition from countries around
the world. This competition will not be decided on the basis of product
price and assortment but in our classrooms and universities. Technology is
shaping the future of the United States and changing our world dramatically.
According to American Civil Rights Coalition, "In the 17 years Prop 209 has
been in effect, California has led the way towards color-blind government
and increased graduation rates in higher education by using race and gender
neutral policies." Prop 209 results in a significant increase in graduation
rates in higher education. This is exactly what California needs to do.
Qualified college graduates ensure an educated workforce for tomorrow's
economy. If we grant preferential treatment based on race in college
admission, history tells us that fewer students will graduate from colleges.
Employers will not be able to find workers with the qualified skills to
fill an increasingly technical job market. This will affect the quality of
the workforce and the state's economic health. Companies will have to spend
more hire skilled workers, potentially from foreign countries, invest more
heavily in workforce development or even outsource jobs overseas. Therefore
SCA-5 is not in America's best interest.
I, therefore, am writing to urge you to vote against SCA-5. SCA-5 will hurt
our economy in the long run. Everyone in California will suffer from short-
sighted policy-making which holds back our growth. If Democrats pass SCA-5
in the Assembly, I'm sure a lot of people who have knowledge will be
enormously upset.
Yours truly,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I urge you to take immediate steps against SCA-5. SCA-5 is schemed to change
the California educational system. SCA-5 will eliminate the right to be
protected against all kinds of discrimination in education. Making things
even worse is the fact that SCA-5 is merely the first step towards a
terrible path. SCA-5 would result in mandated discrimination against certain
students applying to UC campuses.
From a purely practical standpoint, a policy of rejecting high-performing
students based on their ethnicity is a self-defeating idea. It goes against
everything our supposedly enlightened state stands for. Fairness is a key
principle upon which our educational system should be based. When students
work hard so they can get into a good school, they should have equal
opportunity at admission regardless of ethnicity or gender. SCA-5 will
undermine this basic principle of fairness.
In addition, according to numerous studies, minority students might feel
stigmatized by affirmative action, believing they were admitted on the basis
of their group status, not individual achievement or ability. These
students often consider themselves second-class students, and feel other
students see them in the same light. They are more likely to fail in school
and drop out. Many of our K-12 schools are failing our students, leaving
them unprepared for college. No student should suffer a huge fall in life
because the school the government has chosen for them is not a good fit.
Everyone loses when students drop out.
I hope that our legislators will have courage to reject SCA-5. You will win
my vote if you vote no to SAC-5. Otherwise I will vote against Democrats
from now on and will advise all friends and family to do the same.
Cordially yours,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I urge you to vote against SCA 5. This bill, the consequence is that it
actually allows our public schools to use race and gender to discriminate
against students. Is that really where we want to go? We teach children the
importance of fairness. We teach children about the evils of injustice
about racism and discrimination. We inspire children with the stories of
people like Martin Luther King, Jr. and Nelson Mandela who worked for
justice. Now truth has become lies and lies have become truth. What words
are we using to teach our children that they should be treated differently
because of their race, instead of their efforts and qualifications?
At the core of making American better is the fundamental question of whether
every American has an equal chance. Not a preferential chance, but an equal
chance. The emphasis on fairness leads to continuous improvement and a high
level of competitiveness. In the United States, fundamental principles
ought to matter. And, there is not more basic than the right to equal
treatment under the law. We judge students only on the basis of their merit
and character, not on the basis of their race or skin color.
Therefore I am writing to urge your immediate action to rescind SCA 5.
Please stop racial discrimination! If SCA 5 receives approval in the State
Assembly, I will vote just to vote against the Democrats no matter what
happens. In addition, I will ask my family and friends to do the same.
Yours most sincerely,
XXX

Dear XXX,
Please figth against SCA-5! Equality has clearly played an important role in
American history. When the founders of the United States of America wrote
in the Declaration of Independence the most sacred notions that "all men are
created equal". They were not ignoring the obvious differences that make
people individuals. Their differences in appearance, personality, aptitude,
skills and character. This essential equality means that no one is born with
a natural right to rule over others without their consent, and that
governments are obligated to apply the law equally to everyone.
The American Dream has always stood for the ideals of freedom, equality, and
opportunity available to every American from the time it entered the
national lexicon. Is the American Dream attainable by all Americans? Most
Americans perceive a college education as the ticket to the American Dream.
However with the passing of SCA-5, this fundamental principle of equality is
violated. It is racial discrimination at its finest. It's racial
discrimination in its purest form. Is this your American Dream? Why has our
state become so lame? The granting of preferential treatment based on race
is not the American way. Education should be color-blind. If you work hard
you get what you deserve.
Please!!! Say No to SCA-5. We need to protect the equal education rights of
our youth. Lawmakers should draft bills to improve education for poor
children regardless of their race. If Democrats pass the proposed SCA5 in
the Assembly, I will vote against any and all Democrats as Democrats are out
of touch with the American People and American Dream.

再写一篇, 今天这篇好像比昨天好
Dear XXX,
I am writing to express my unreserved opposition to SCA-5 on the grounds
that it will lead to state-sponsored discrimination. In the development of
modern American history, our state and nation have participated in
discrimination against some of our own citizens. During World War II, the
internment of Japanese-American citizens in prison camps represented a low
point in the history of our civil rights. The federal government detained U.
S. citizens just because they are a member of a minority race.
SCA-5 will remove the portion of our State Constitution which prohibits
discrimination in the area of public education. By doing this, SCA-5 is
weakening the laws against discrimination that protect California today. An
applicant's race, color, religion, national origin, or sex will make the
difference in whether or not a student is admitted. Well, that's just Un-
American! If you worked hard, you should not be denied your dream and others
should not reap the rewards. Discrimination is the opposite of who we are
as a state and as a nation.
In additoin accoring to many studies, preferences hurt underrepresented
minorities far more than they help them. At the heart of affirmative action
’s failure is a simple phenomenon called mismatch. The students would be
better served if California offered them the choice of which school best
suits their needs. Moreover, while certainly we want all to get an education
, we must also maintain the competitive edge of our University of California
system schools. By regulating admission on anything other than merit would
cause great harm to the level of excellence we enjoy from our universities.
Therefore I urge a "No" vote on SCA-5. The people of California deserve a
government that supports their hard work and shares their hopes for the
future. Otherwise I will vote against and encourage others to vote against
Democrats who support this bill.
Yours very truly,
XXX

我对写SCA-5请愿信的心得
写这些请愿信重要的是文章内容尽量不要有族裔色彩, 这样效果反而适得其反, 也就是
文章内容尽量避免有亚裔, 华裔, 韩裔, 西语裔, 非洲裔, 白人这样的字眼出现, 能够
避免尽量避免. 不然收到文章的对象认为你是从族裔立场出发, 而不是从公益立场出发
来写这封请愿信, 效果因此大减, 读完因为本身所属族裔不同, 就很没有说服力. 所以
如果真的有需要用到任何族裔名称的字眼, 也请用在客观的事实资料上, 尽量不要加上
个人主观的判断.
要说服对方第一种方法可以从道德制高点出发, 也就是强调使用种族来决定入学资格的
荒谬, 这里可以引些名人的话或是过去的历史来增加说服力, 例如马丁路德, 曼德拉,
林肯, 独立宣言等, 另外还有当然最好用的我有一个梦演说或是美国梦等, 说明种族歧
视的错误, 来谴责对方. 并强调人人平等的重要性. 最近也出现使用二战期间日裔美国
人被关进集中营, 或是排华法案历史来说服对方的文章. 然后建议应立法帮助穷人受教
育, 不分种族.
而第二种方法要从对方的立场出发, 陈述对方反对SCA-5能获得的益处, 这样对方才会
真的被说服, 不过这些写法都是比较高难度的技巧, 不一定要使用, 如果要写可以参考
我写的范例. 首先是平等才能促进竞争, 科学进步, 使得加州在经济上有竞争力, 大家
未来的生活才能更好, 工作机会增加. 其次是加州大学才能继续保持竞争力, 如果加州
大学的排名下降, 这对住在加州的人都是损害. 再来就是所谓的Mismatch问题, 从客观
的历史资料来验证, 若使用种族来录取学生, 会使得学生整体毕业率下降. 因为这些因
为族裔因素而入学的学生, 实际上本身能力并不足以周遭同学竞争, 他们自己也知道自
己是因为族裔因素被录取的, 而不是因为自己的能力, 因此也产生自卑. 研究显示这些
Underprepared准备不足的学生常在班上都是垫底, 很高比例因此被退学或是自己申请
停学, 这对他们自身来说, 反而是场灾难, 已经丧失制定这个政策当初的用意, 因为当
初如果按照自己本身能力申请, 进入适合自己的学校, 和自己差不多水准的人竞争, 反
而能顺利毕业, 人生会更顺利. 此外读书不是唯一的出路, 例如非洲裔擅长运动或音乐
, 不需要强迫其受不适合的大学教育, 反而更容易发挥其所长.
第三种方法是分享自己的人生经验, 还有周遭友人小孩的感想, 这部份我就没有办法写
范例, 因为每个人的遭遇不同, 这也很容易说服对方, 特别是要用低姿态来博取对方同
情. 例如写自己移民的背景, 还有对美国梦的向往, 这种写法就可能会写到自己的族裔
, 这时候用较广泛的Asian American亚裔比用较狭隘的Chinese American容易获得对方
共鸣, 不要对别的族裔有任何的批评, 可以尽量试着从小孩的观点语言出发, 或是朋友
间对于自己小孩的未来的忧虑来着手, 较容易说服对方.
最后当然是强调对方支持SCA-5的坏处来说服对方, 第一个最简单的我不会投票支持你,
可以说我本来支持你或是不投票, 但是我现在因为SCA-5一定要投票反对, 而且将来会
一直投票反对, 这样对方感觉到是个损失. 第二个就是强调会去说服亲人朋友投票反对
, 或是我们整个社区都很关心这个教育或平等问题, 不过尽量也不要出现族裔名称的字
眼较好, 稍微暗示对方就够了, 就算要用也要向前面一样, 使用亚裔也不要使用华裔.
第三个当然就是金钱, 可以强调不会再捐献, 如果曾经捐献那是更好, 能够提出捐献的
历史就非常有说服力, 对方钱如果因此可能减少, 当然是非常痛苦.
我写的这些范例都是从公益的观点出发, 如果觉得自己写的不好请尽量引用, 常自己写
些文章英文能力就会进步, 这也是很好的锻炼. 有时间我会尽量再写些请愿信范本, 新
写的我通常是把文章放在http://nosca5.blogspot.com/文章范本部分最上面, 看Blog的一定是最新的, 因为我一定是最先更改Blog的部份, 其他不一定会改.

发现许多人对SCA-5法案本身有许多疑问, 特别写了这篇问答集.
本文网址在: http://nosca5.blogspot.com/2014/03/sca-5.html,欢迎转载
SCA-5法案的相关问题
1. 什么是SCA-5法案?
答: 加州SCA-5法案将废除禁止在州立大学入学种族歧视的规定, 帮助在加州公立大学
学生比例较低的族裔, 增加获准入学学生的数目, 以更符合趋近加州实际人口组成的比
例.
2. SCA-5是否会减少亚裔学生入学的人数或比例?
答: 一定会降低亚裔学生入学人数的比例, 因为由于学校预算的限制, 加州大学招收的
学生数量是有限制的, 不可能无限制招收学生, 学校必须在申请者之间做出取舍. 任何
有基本常识的人都应该知道, 在总人数有限的条件下, 如果有申请者因为族裔理由被照
顾, 那一定要牺牲其他族裔的申请者, 这就是俗话说的, 饼就这么大, 每个人都想从饼
上切下一块, 无法皆大欢喜. 亚裔学生属于占加州大学学生比例和数量都最高的族群,
是最主要针对减少对象. 所以SCA-5法案一旦通过, 如果要提高占加州大学学生比例较
低的西语裔和非洲裔, 最主要的改变就是降低招收亚裔学生的数量, 数量减少才有可能
降低亚裔学生的比例, 达成这个法案增加西语裔和非洲裔学生比例的目标. 由于加州大
学欧洲裔学生比例和人口比例相近, 预期不会有很大的影响, 但欧洲裔学生比例也是要
透过同样的方法来调整, 使其更趋近实际人口比例的目标, 事实上政策一旦实施, 所有
族群比例都要朝向接近实际人口比例前进.
3. SCA-5是如何增加西语裔和非洲裔学生比例, 减少亚裔学生比例,达到学生比例趋近
于实际人口组成比例的目标呢?
答: 给Underrepresented占学生比例和人口组成比例有差距的族群在录取考量上加分,
也就是让这些学生更容易被录取, 例如我们常听到有新闻报导常春藤盟校亚裔学生SAT
分数平均要比非洲裔或西语裔学生多一百, 一百五十分才能录取等, 甚至因此引发受害
亚裔学生诉讼. 通常这些操作方法实际内容是不对外公开的, 由每个学校自行操作, 行
政立法单位只是藉由学生比例结果来检查政策是否有效实行, 这些实际平均分数的差距
外界要透过研究才能知道. 大学录取并不会实际制定Racial Quota族裔配额, 但整个政
策运作的目标就是朝向让加州大学学生族裔结构与加州族裔结构更接近的目标接近, 这
其实在美国许多学校都有实施类似的作法, 并不是加州独创的作法, 例如University
of Texas德州大学就有多次受害白人学生与学校诉讼的案例, 近期是Fisher v.
University of Texas案件, 这在网路搜寻有许多相关资料可查阅.
4. 亚裔学生是否能藉由拒答学生族裔项目来规避这项种族歧视法律规定? 或是回答是
其他的族裔?
答: 不行, 因为不回答就不能被加分, 不能因为你属于Underrepresented占学生比例低
的族裔而被加分优待, 不能被加分但是其他人因为族裔理由被加分, 也就是在比较下实
际申请者被减分. 这实际与回答亚裔的结果是相同的, 所以不回答结果和回答亚裔是相
同的. 如果本身是纯亚裔却回答是其他族裔则属于造假, 造假一旦被发现会被取消录取
资格. 学校有权透过其他客观资料来判断你的族裔, 华裔姓氏相当明显独特, 应该很难
不被发现. 入学后学校若对你填的资料有疑问, 可以要求查核, 你必须提供相关资料配
合调查, 一旦查证造假或拒绝配合将会被取消录取资格. 在这些查证方面不是学校来查
证, 而是学校如果有疑问的话, 会要求你提供相关证明资料, 这和报税, 应征工作是相
同的, 就像你找工作填写虚假的履历表, 公司录取后, 但是实际工作时发现你没有相关
经验, 就有权力取消你的员工资格. 而混血的学生则可Self-Identified来填写自己所
属的族裔, 与亚裔学生去填写非洲裔或西语裔, 造假寻求在入学上的优势是不同的状况.
5. University of California加州大学是否真的如SCA-5法案提案人Ed Hernandez所说
的不多元化吗?
答: Ed Hernandez所提供的数据相互无关, 无法得到他所说的结论, 他的网站完全没有
提任何数据证据, 直接下多元化在减弱的结论, 甚至用部分数据描述全局状况. Ed
Hernandez在法案的Bill Analysis中只提供一处数据, 1995年加州高中毕业生38%属少
数族裔, University of California加州大学新生21%属少数族裔, 差距17%. 2009年高
中毕业生52%属少数族裔, University of California加州大学28%属少数族裔, 差距增
加到24%.
事实上University of California加州大学已被列为全国最为多元化的大学校园之一,
产生差距的原因是 (1)University of California加州大学系统的声誉高, 许多学生是
外州学生. (2) 许多加州高中毕业生无资格申请University of California加州大学,
加州大学有较严苛的申请门槛. (3) Ed Hernandez的数据只有包括University of
California加州大学系统,不包括California State University加州州立大学系统,
事实上在CSU系统西语裔学生比例34%已高居各族群第一。
加州参议会共和党主席Bob Huff夏乐柏表示, 根据位于洛杉矶的智库Community
Advocates Incorporated的数据, 加州大学招生的族裔完全反映了加州的族裔结构, 且
更加多元化. 如1996年西裔在UC加州大学学生中仅占14.3%, 但2006高达25.8%, CSU西
语裔学生从21.49%上升至33.9%, 现在如果将UC加大和CSU州大的西语裔学生加起来, 甚
至超过了西语裔在整个加州的比例, 还不能说明加州公立大学有多么的多元化? 这已经
完全反映了加州族裔结构变化, 并没有出现Ed Hernandez所谓的少数族裔学生显著下降
. 该智库是中立不分党派的智库, 董事会成员既有共和党又有民主党.
6. 加州大学在入学上是否有照顾贫穷的居民?
答: 加州大学在录取学生时,会参考学业成绩和学生各种在校和校外的表现, 并且考虑
学生的背景经济状况来做综合衡量, 但是排除种族因素. 也就是家庭贫穷或是收入低的
人会得到较好的考量, 但是不管任何种族都一视同仁, 不会因为这个人贫穷但是因为不
属于西语裔或非洲裔, 而是欧洲裔或亚裔, 就不与从优考量, 现行制度是不分族裔的入
学政策. SCA-5法案则想要改成也要考量族裔, 也就是对每个族裔会有不同的待遇, 是
种族歧视的政策.

Dear XXX,
I hereby urge you to vote against SCA-5. SCA-5 allows public universities to
use race and ethnicity as a factor for admissions. This amendment is openly
racist. If passed, it will impose one of the most significant restrictions
on the the universal right of education for all children and youth. If
passed, it is definitely one of the most racist bills in the history of
California. If passed, it could open the door for discrimination on the
basis of gender or race in the recruitment process. If passed, it will
significantly affect our community, our families, and our children’s future.
It is very important for education to address diversity issues. However, it
is more important to provide an education where the subject of race cannot
be looked at as an unfair advantage. Standards should be applied equally.
After all, isn't equality what this nation is about? Minorities do not want
to have special consideration over others, regardless if it's in their favor
. It just gives the impression that they are handicapped and not capable of
adhering to the same standards as a non-minority student.
It would be more fulfilling for a student to be accepted by a school knowing
they were admitted purely on the basis of their academics, rather than
having to question whether or not they got accepted based on their skin
color. If students are more assured that they were accepted on an equal
basis, they can learn and compete effectively. As a result, students won't
quit or drop out from schools. At the heart of affirmative action’s failure
is a simple phenomenon called mismatch.
Please!!! Say no to racism! Fight against SCA-5! Children who study and work
hard deserve equal opportunity in college admission regardless of their
race. I always support Democrats. But if Democrats pass SCA-5 in the
Assembly, I will immediately switch my support to Republicans in future
elections. I'm sure a lot of people who believed in American Dream will vote
against Democrats. The granting of preferential treatment based on race is
not the American way.
Godspeed!,

Dear XXX,
I hereby urge you to vote "NO" on SCA-5! Why does anyone need to amend this
clause "The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential
treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color,
ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public
education, or public contracting." and says amending it will not result in
preferential treatment. It expressly does not affect any law or governmental
action that does not discriminate against or grant preferential treatment.
It was truly a breathtaking display of dishonesty. The only possible reason
anybody needs to get rid of this clause is that they intend to discriminate
or grant preferences. Preferential treatment is precisely the reason behind
the movement to reintroduce racial preferences. SCA-5 is sugar-coating for a
very noxious and unfair proposed amendment to state law.
No one would dispute that a diverse student body is essential and the most
desirable, but that diversity must be achieved fairly. Racial preferences
eliminate fairness from the admissions process. Lack of racial preferences
does not preclude attracting the "best and brightest among students of color
." The best and brightest of students of color are the equal of the best and
brightest of any group. They need no special preferences.
I hope that our legislators will start to listen to what people want. Please
fight against SCA-5! In the United States, most reject considering race in
college admissions according to the Gallup Poll. Sixty-seven percent say
decisions should be based solely on merit. People are not going to stand by
and watch the legislators destroy our children's opportunities. We are
concerned citizens. We need to stand up when things are not right. We need
to be heard. Your vote is very important to everyone in our community.
With love,

Dear XXX,
I urge you to take immediate action against SCA-5. SCA-5 will lower the
ranking of the UCs and Cal States. We need to put merit and academic
performance as a priority. Have students study more and obtain good grades
and knowledge, thus ensuring their admission. That way, we would have better
students and a wiser populace, as opposed to those admitted through what
amounts to state-sponsored racial discrimination for a chosen few who spend
their lives stigmatized as admitted because of their skin color. What
exactly is wrong with people who work the hardest are rewarded? Anyone can
get in. All they have to do is work for it. The emphasis on fairness leads
to continuous improvement and a high level of competitiveness. SCA-5 will
undermine this basic principle of fairness and has a negative impact on high
-performing students.
America’s share of the global economy is shrinking as other countries rise.
Within a few years, the United States will no longer even have the world’s
largest economy. We need to make sure the best and the brightest are
getting those seats. So America can generate the technology we need to stay
competitive. Every group should have the opportunity to succeed in higher
education. It is the American Dream. Abraham Lincoln said "We do wish to
allow the humblest man an equal chance to get rich with everybody else." At
the core of making American better is the fundamental question of whether
every American has an equal chance.
I believed in American Dream. SCA-5 is racist because it allows public
education institutions to give preferential treatment on the basis of race,
sex, color, ethnicity or national origin. Is this your American Dream?
Please vote "NO" on SCA-5. It will hurt our economy in the long run and
everyone in California will suffer.
Very sincerely,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I strongly urge a "No" vote on SCA-5. SCA-5 allows public universities to
use race in admissions decisions. In 1997 former President Bill Clinton
insisted that he wants to continue in this direction--tilting the government
's emphasis from "race-based" programs like affirmative action toward
initiatives that target "economic need". That's where President Clinton
thinks this whole thing needs to be going. Programs to aid disadvantaged
students should focus on economic need alone and avoid any race
qualifications. Why universities accept relatively affluent minorities over
working class and poor people of all races? Preferences for well-off
minorities help shut out poorer students of all races. Moreover what might
be a better strategy is to raise educational attainment by investing more in
elementary and secondary education for lower-income students.
In addition according to Richard H. Sander, Professor of Law, UCLA,
preferences hurt underrepresented minorities far more than they help them.
At the heart of affirmative action’s failure is a simple phenomenon called
mismatch. Racial preferences often put students in competition with far
better-prepared classmates, dooming many to fall so far behind that they can
never catch up. How many bright and promising minority students have failed
because they were steered with the best intentions into elite schools for
which they were less prepared academically than most of their classmates? We
don’t do future generations of students any favors by trying to ignore
this issue or pretend it doesn’t exist.
I hope that our legislators will have courage to reject SCA-5. You will have
my vote if you vote against SAC-5. Most people in my community rank
education as the most important policy issue. They will decide who they vote
for, who they send money to, and who they canvass for.
God bless,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I sincerely urge you to vote against SCA 5. Racial preferences were wrong
and that individuals should be judged without regard to skin color. True
equity demands fair outcomes for all. Racial discrimination is wrong,
whichever way it goes, in whatever name.
Under Prop. 209, California schools have adopted a number of significant
measures to boost racial diversity indirectly, mostly by looking at economic
status. Schools have reduced their reliance on standardized test scores for
admissions, banned legacy preferences for the children of alumni,
encouraged more community-college transfers to four-year institutions, and
created new outreach programs to high-poverty high schools. In part because
of these efforts, UCLA and UC–Berkeley are far more socioeconomically
diverse than most selective colleges. In 2011–12, the proportion of
students eligible for Pell grants (federal financial aid for lower-income
students) at UCLA was 38 percent and at Berkeley 37 percent, compared with
just 13 percent at another top public institution, the University of
Virginia.
These steps helped promote social mobility. But they are likely to disappear
if universities go back to recruiting by race. Prestige-conscious
universities receive no points from the U.S. News & World Report rankings
for admitting low-income students. They’re actually diverting funding from
things that will boost rankings. Most universities create racial diversity
by recruiting fairly advantaged students of all colors. A study found that
86 percent of African-Americans at selective colleges were middle- or upper-
class. Prestige-conscious universities generally do not aggressively pursue
socioeconomic diversity except where race has been taken off the table. And
recruiting low-income students is the next best way to achieve racial
diversity.
SCA5 is not the right answer! It is racist because it allows public
education institutions to give preferential treatment on the basis of race,
sex, color, ethnicity or national origin. Our state has better options. One
step would be to improve the state’s class-based affirmative action program
by considering the net wealth of an applicant’s family. Coming from a low-
wealth family is a real disadvantage in life, so students who perform well
academically despite that obstacle are deserving of special consideration.
Your pal,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I strongly urge you to oppose SCA-5. SCA-5 allows race to be considered in
public higher education. This bill fails to address human rights and
fairness. It offers no clear guidelines as to how it should be applied. It
provides no safeguards against misuse. When a subject as sensitive as race
is involved in a public policy decision, it is incumbent upon lawmakers to
take greater care and consideration. SCA-5 is vague, overly broad, and
subject to varying interpretations. It has the possibility of encouraging
administrators and officials to discriminate based on skin color.
In addition racial preference will give a negative impact on students'
attitudes and motivation towards learning. Our state shall be fully
committed to combating racism and promoting equality in our schools to
ensure all children are given the best possible chance. Moreover, racial
double standards also hurt the minorities they are intended to help, mainly
by steering students away from schools where they are more likely to thrive
and into academic environments where they feel overwhelmed and struggle to
keep up. Therefore SCA-5 will increase the level of dropouts from the
education system.
I believe every student should have equal access and opportunity to a
quality and affordable education. Providing the best possible education for
the next generation is an essential part of the American dream for every
ethnic community in our great nation. Many immigrants make major sacrifices
so that their children can have the best educational opportunities. Such
opportunities are possible owning to the American principle of equal
treatment across all racial groups. SCA-5 undermines the fundamental
principle of equal treatment for all. We should oppose any racial
discrimination that would diminish educational opportunities for any student
.
I therefore urge you to reject the flawed SCA-5 from consideration. So that
the American dream of educational equal opportunity can be available to all.
If Democrats pass SCA-5 in the Assembly, I'm sure most of people who are
against discrimination will stand up against the Democrats.
Onward and upward,
XXX

Dear XXX,
I am writing to urge you to reject the defective SCA-5. In recent years,
scholars have started to do careful empirical research on whether racial
preferences actually help their intended recipients. When the dispute shifts
from "is it fair?" to "does it work?" — thus changing the focus from
ideology to evidence — open-minded people can make progress toward
consensus.
Much of this new research is on the idea of "mismatch" — on what happens
after a student is admitted to a school for which he or she is only
marginally qualified. It is common for colleges to accept ethnic minority
applicants with SAT scores several hundred points below those generally
required for other applicants. In general, studies have found that these
ethnic minority students tend to learn less if they are surrounded by peers
with much stronger academic preparation. When they get to schools where most
of the other students are better prepared with more rigorous high school
course work. The chance of failure is high. Although some racial preference
recipients rise to the challenge, research finds that most tend to be
overwhelmed. In addition they are likely to have less social interaction
across racial lines.
SCA-5 is not the right answer! The U.S. Commission on Civil Rights has
issued two meticulously researched and reasoned reports expressing great
concern about mismatch problems. The evidence is overwhelming that
mismatches often harm those they are trying to help. These are serious
concerns. Students admitted to schools under such programs are less likely
to get degrees. Everyone loses when students drop out. The students would be
better served if California offered them the choice of which school best
suits their needs.
Therefore I'm asking you to vote "No" on SCA5! Having underprepared students
entering colleges would greatly diminish the quality of education and lower
the ranking of the UCs and Cal States. Everyone in our community will pay
close attention to this matter. People are not going to stand by and watch
the legislators destroy our children's opportunities.
Very truly yours,
XXX
