CNN doesn’t cover a lot of bake sales, but one in California is getting plenty of media attention.
A Republican student group at the University of California at Berkeley (that felt weird to type) is selling cookies and brownies, but the price of the baked goods is based on gender and race.
White men pay the most. Native American women eat free. The price list is in the photo.
The stunt is meant to be racist, discriminatory and get attention, organizers say.
The Republican group is upset that the university, like most government agencies, uses gender and race to determine who gets admitted or hired, reports CNN.
Berkeley’s student government has “condemned” the “use of discrimination whether it is in satire or in seriousness by any student group.”
Proceeds from the sale will go to charity.
The unanswered question? Are those brownies any good? And are they packing the mystery ingredient beloved by 1960s Berkeley protesters?
Probably not. Conservative hash brownies would be news.
