|OK that's $2 blondie, unless you're a white-looking Mexican then it's just a buck ! What? you'd be mad if you were an Anglo? That's exactly what our strategy is- Now, go take it out on them minorities!|
This story was featured today on, where else? Fox News of course. During Megan Kelly's America Live, the following story was covered and discussed by an Anglo white republican and a Latina democrat. Of course, the republican guy claimed innocence but that's just part of the strategy of dogwhistling. I'm sure we've got readers coming down on both sides of the issue. Anyway, here's how the story was covered by:
The New York Daily News
A controversy over cupcakes is heating up at UC Berkley in California where campus Republicans are planning to hold an affirmative action bake sale on Tuesday.
At the sale, white men will be charged $2 for a baked good, Asians will pay $1.50, Latinos $1, African-Americans 75 cents and 25 cents for Native Americans, KGO-TV reported.
Women will get a 25 cent discount.
"The pricing structure is there to bring attention, to cause people to get a little upset," Campus Republican president Shawn Lewis told the TV station. "But it's really there to cause people to think more critically about what this kind of policy would do in university admissions."
The Campus Democrats immediately slammed the sale, which Lewis said is meant to take a stand against an affirmative action-like bill for the University of California system that is awaiting Governor Jerry Brown's signature.
