College Republicans Bake Sale Prices Depend On Race


What a bunch of dumbasses. If they are "surprised" by these reactions they're bloody sheltered idjits. Love Tim Wise's rebuttal in the video.

(CNN) -- Campus Republicans at the University of California Berkeley have cooked up a storm of controversy with their plans for a bake sale.

But it's not your everyday collegiate fundraiser they've got in mind. They've developed a sliding scale where the price of the cookie or brownie depends on your gender and the color of your skin.

During the sale, scheduled for Tuesday, baked goods will be sold to white men for $2.00, Asian men for $1.50, Latino men for $1.00, black men for $0.75 and Native American men for $0.25. All women will get $0.25 off those prices.

"The pricing structure is there to bring attention, to cause people to get a little upset," Campus Republican President Shawn Lewis, who planned the event, told CNN-affiliate KGO. "But it's really there to cause people to think more critically about what this kind of policy would do in university admissions."

Lewis says it's a way to make a statement about pending legislation that would let the California universities consider race or national origin during the admission process.

    You know, I realize they want their entire university to be white males, but there are those institutions out there. They are called private and religious for a reason. A PUBLIC institution needs to be open to all, so that people are exposed to something outside their narrow white viewpoints. These idiots joined college Republicans to surround themselves with, guess who, rich white guys. 
      I have been getting robocalls from this group...really scary robocalls. I have now opted out twice. They leave you nom option to talk to a person, not that any of these guys actually are thinking humans anyway. 
      One more thing: just because someone gets into a university and is female or black or whatever does not mean they are paying less than the white guy who got in because his grandpappy build the history fact, they are probably paying more.

    Wow I bet all these clowns would just love to be Black and reap all those benefits. They're probably running off to get a permanent heavy spray tan as we speak.

  • They say they are going ahead with the bake sale and not backing down one bit. We blogged about this on Saturday and still maintain it points to a racist undertone in the Republican Party, whether they care to admit it or not. It is not only in poor taste, but racist. They are forgetting the whole reason of why we had affirmative action in the first place.
