Mock diversity bake sale draws protest at UC Berkeley

It's kind of refreshing to see UC Berkeley living up to its tradition of student activism and protest. The current dustup over the bake sale is really about SB 185, a bill passed by the California legislature that would allow the state's public universities to consider race, gender, ethnicity and national origin of admissions applicants. Full story.

A student who identified herself as 'Hannah" sells baked goods during a bake sale led by the Berkeley College Republicans Tuesday, Sept. 27, at the University of California campus in Berkeley, Calif. The Berkeley College Republicans have scheduled a bake sale where the price of a cookie or a brownie depends on your gender and the color of your skin. The price of a baked good costs $2 for white people, $1.50 if you're Asian, $1 for Latinos, 75 cents for African-Americans and 25 cents for Native Americans. Women get a discount of 25 cents.
