Bake Sale Prices Based on Race

This is getting a lot of people talking. The College Republicans at the University of California, Berkeley is holding a bake sale on September 27 in which prices of their treats will be based on the customer’s race. The price for a cookie goes as follows:
– $2 for Whites
– $1.50 for Asians
– $1 for Latinos
– $0.75 for Blacks
– $0.25 for Native Americans
– $0.25 discounts for women

The organization’s President says their trying to make a point – they are protesting a proposed state bill, SB 185, which would use a student’s race in the college admission process.
