Equal Opportunity, NOT Equal Results!

2002 Annual Report of Adversity.Net, Inc.
Established in 1997 to educate the public about the disparate impact of racial preferences upon non-preferred racial and ethnic groups.

Racial Preferences = Racial Discrimination

Letter from the Chairman
2002 Annual Report
January 31, 2003

Dear Adversity.Net Clients, Readers, and Supporters;

         I'm proud to report that Adversity.Net accomplished a great deal during 2002, our 5th year in operation. Our readership and our clientele continued to grow in spite of our non-existent budget. The increasing volume of readers who continue to actively seek out our web site indicates to me that dissatisfaction with the race preferences industry is growing. This is a very good sign. Annual

          I personally thank each and every one of our clients and supporters for having had the courage to stand up and fight against discriminatory racial preferences, race-based social and employment programs, and reverse discrimination in general.  Please know that Adversity.Net continues to be on your side!

          One year ago today, on Jan. 31, 2002, after a two-and-a-half year struggle with the IRS, we finally received our official designation as a 501(c)3 tax-exempt educational organization.

          Today, on Jan. 31, 2003, we have embarked on a similar struggle: we submitted our application to the Combined Federal Campaign for 2003. If our application is accepted, we will appear on the CFC's charitable payroll deduction checklist for tens of thousands of federal employees.

          In 2002 we provided real benefits and services to victims of reverse discrimination in every state of the U.S.  Here's a typical comment from one of our clients during this past year:

"Again, thanks for the support.  You’re the first one who has really put their name on the line in my efforts [reverse discrimination suit against a gov't agency]. All others would not stick their neck out because they didn't want to get involved ---until I won [my lawsuit]. Thanks again -- (name)."

          Last July we released our analysis of overhiring of preferred/protected minorities by the federal government using the Office of Personnel Management's own hiring data.  We received national distribution via the Washington Times, Townhall.com, as well as via the Americans Against Discrimination and Preferences (AADAP) email distribution list.  In addition, visitors to our web site have viewed our analysis of minority overhiring 2,528 times (unduplicated readers).  Another 1,460 visitors to our web site downloaded our copy of the original OPM data upon which our analysis was based.

          The level of legal help we have been able to provide via our fledgling "Legal Help" page continued to improve in 2002.  We forged several new working relationships with private law firms who have successfully prosecuted cases of reverse discrimination.   We continue to refer clients to them as well as to other firms.

          In fact, last year several attorneys contacted Adversity.Net for assistance in reverse discrimination cases they are prosecuting.

          Adversity.Net also received recognition from the academic community this year. We were featured prominently in a research paper on the effects of reverse discrimination which was published in the Journal of Intergroup Relations, Volume XXXVIII, No. 4 Winter 2001/2002, pages 33 - 44. Additionally, Adversity.Net is to be the central subject of an upcoming paper by the author, Dr. Fred Pincus, who has obtained my permission to publish a separate article consisting exclusively of the extensive email correspondence we exchanged on the topic.  (I'll publish my copy of this correspondence online soon.)

          From my perspective, though, our most gratifying accomplishment in 2002 has been the service and assistance we have provided to victims of racial preference policies. While we posted or revised only four new case studies / horror stories, our case work (client support) via email with client-victims soared into the hundreds this past year. Annual

          I am eagerly anticipating that in 2003 our level of service, and our readership, will soar beyond anything we have seen in the past 5 years.

          My sincere thanks to each of you for your continued support and for your courageous opposition to discrimination in the guise of racial preferences (sometimes inaccurately referred to as "Affirmative Action").

-- Tim Fay, Chairman

*  We use the term reverse discrimination reluctantly and only because it is so widely understood.  In our opinion there really is only one kind of discrimination.
