I heard about this the other day from a friend, and thought the Pit might enjoy it. Basically a republican group at Berkeley (I think a unicorn was one of their members) organized a bake sale where pricing is based on race and gender, with white males paying the most and native american women basically getting free stuff. They're getting all kinds of negative media attention, but they claim it's a satire of some kind of affirmative action policy the state is considering.

I'm fine with it. AA needs serious revision and should be income based, rather than ethnicity and gender based.

Basically it's a bunch of whiney white boys complaining about affirmative action when they themselves have everything handed to them, economically and socially?

it's pretty stupid to assume all white males are better off than all males of other race

This is not always true.
I think it's time for a change.

AA is an extremely racist notion anyway. All measures to promote equality of outcome are shit ideas. who cares

I think this is great. It's a terrific way of pointing out how retarded and racist affirmitive action policies are.

If people get this outraged over a bakesale, they might start getting pissed off at AA as well.

But seriously, screw you gringos! I'mma go get my 1-dollar cupcakes!

This more relates to the whole PC thing, but all the shit like not being able to call a blackboard a blackboard and singing crap like "ba ba multi ethnic rainbow sheep" instead of "ba ba black sheep" should stop.

Just saying.

There's gonna be some very popular native american women among pastry and cake loving white males in Berkeley.
#28
As a complete outsider I'm not sure what this is all about.


...
Organizers say their "Increase Diversity Bake Sale" is meant as satiric political commentary on new legislation that would again allow California's public universities to consider the race, gender, ethnicity and national origin of admissions applicants.


Why would they consider these characteristics from applicants? To decide on the entering fees?
Is it a so called positive discrimination thing?
Just because I have some strong opinions doesn't mean I agree with everything I say.

The guy exaggerated but i think everyone has probably seen what he's talking about in one form or another

In Victoria it was mandatory to thank the traditional owners of the land at formal occasions. Do you guys have that?

Someone should name their band 'racial bake sale'

Imagine being a native american woman at that sale...

good god the possibilities...

It was pretty weird and uncomfortable just because of how forced it sounded.

Admissions and scholarships.

I think this thing they're doing is great. Even if you don't agree with how they're doing it, at least it brings attention to AA policies. Because they suck.

Oh, that stuff. Yeah, that died out pretty quick. It was still way less annoying than the stupid fuckheads who thought that it was the beginning of the ascendancy of Aboriginals to taking over everything.

You're right. It was a good thing we quelled that aboriginal uprising before it got out of hand.

Seriously i must lead a mad sheltered existence, I'm still taken aback when people are openly racists against aboriginals.
