The College Republican group at UC Berkeley is annoyed by pending Californian affirmative action legislation. So annoyed, in fact, that they can only express their outrage via that age old medium of social satire: the bake sale. The group plans to hold a bake sale in which the prices are determined by race and gender. If you’re a white man, you pay $2 for a cupcake. You get a discount if you’re female. You get an even bigger discount if you’re hispanic or black. And so on, down to the lowest price of $.25 for Native Americans.
See? See how funny it is? Because once affirmative action laws are on the books everything is harder for the poor, embattled white dude. Whereas all those free-riding women and minorities have it easier. Especially Native Americans! They’ve taken so much from the US government! And what has the US government ever taken from them? (Oh, wait. Ooops.)
The Huff Post has more details here – including some amusing comments from other Berkeley students.
Ps – They have the College Republicans at *Berkeley*? Really?
