"The issues addressed by the investigation do not begin to scratch the surface of the real problems on the AVMS campus," said parent Leslie Harris.

Her name would be spray-painted on tenement walls. You can almost picture the slogan: "Remember Amber." The phone lines on call-in radio would be lit up all night. Film at 11. Amber wouldn't be a kid anymore; she'd be a cause.

"There are many people out there who do not see Asian Americans as Americans," said Mike Matsuda, a former state Assembly candidate and a panelist at Saturday's Asian Pacific American Leadership Summit at Santa Ana College.

To understand the future of American politics, look closely at Dana Point and at Orange County, a Stanford University professor says, and keep in mind that in a few years whites will cease to be the majority in California.
