The Campus Republicans of the UC-Berkeley campus are having a bake sale with the cost per item set in relation to the buyer’s skin color and gender. White males would pay full price, but people who have very dark skin and are female get the food for less. Here’s the pricing structure:
- White $2.00
- Asian $1.50
- Latino $1.00
- Black $0.75
- Native American $0.25
- $0.25 off for all women
This is their way of demonstrating how admission policies at UC allow inferior people who should be valued less into college. The intention of the bake sale was to make people mad. That failed, and instead it made people look at the Campus Republicans of the University of California Berkeley and go “Oh, isn’t that cute. They have no brains but they can still talk and walk. Like those Japanese robots.”
From the cnn report:
Tim Wise, author of the book “White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son,” calls the bake sale a “sarcastic and rather smarmy slap at people of color.”
“There are a lot of ways to make a point about your disagreement with affirmative action,” Wise told Lemon Saturday night.
“I get the joke,” he continued. “How very original. It’s been done for 15 years. The point that I think needs to be made … is that by the time anyone steps on a college campus … there has already been 12- to 13-years of institutionalized affirmative action for white folks, that is to say, racially embedded inequality, which has benefited those of us who are white. And it’s only at the point of college admissions that these folks seem to get concerned with color consciousness.”
Watch the white guys complain about the tone, and Tim Wise comment:
My solution: Get together 100 Native American women. They show up on day one, hour one, and pick up their share, all of which would be free because the Berkeley Young Republicans view Native American Women as the lowest form of subhuman, according to the their racist cynical Bake Sale pricing structure. They could check back every few hours so that all the baked goods are taken before they are sold to anyone else. Then, the Native American Women can run their own bake sale, selling the Republican Brownies for a profit, 100% of which goes to a GOOD cause instead of this dickhead anti-everybody-who-is-not-white-male cause. Like maybe a brown candidate’s campaign or a women’s shelter or something.
