Berkeley College Republicans struck a national nerve today by holding a bake sale with racially discriminatory pricing: Higher prices for white and Asian students, lower prices for black, Hispanic and female students. Why the intentional discrimination? To protest a pending new statewide law, SB 185, which attempts to re-introduce Affirmative Action into university admission standards, something that was banned years ago with California's Proposition 209, a popular constitutional amendment requiring race-neutral admissions. The purposely inflammatory gag was very clever: the goal was to make everyone point out how racist the cupcake prices were, at which point the young Republicans reply, "Exactly! Racial discrimination is unfair. Thanks for making our point for us!" But the leftists on campus and around the state instead flew into a blind rage: The joke was too effective, so Affirmative Action proponents simply pretended to "not get it." Accusations of racism flew back and forth and before anyone knew it we had a major FUBAR situation on our hands. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
