In protest to what? Yep affirmative action, another form of racism.

And what does affirmative action say about the beneficiary?

Wrong. In protest to the American way maybe? Affirmative action is not reflective of racism. Affirmative Action was initiated by Caucasian Americans (Kennedy/Johnson) who were not the friends of Africans in America. Kennedy/Johnson knew Americanism - America's system - was based off of entitlements, nepotism and the best affirmative action - the good ole boy system - so Kennedy/Johnson initiated an appeasement program instead of remedying wrongs in Americanism. You asked - "what does affirmative say about the beneficiary?" You should direct that question to Caucasian American females. Caucasian American females are the main beneficiaries. More so, you should ask yourself who enforces Affirmative Action? Then you can see the student bake sale was not racist. It was plain ole ignorant because they do not know the truth.

Affirmative Action is a response to unequal treatment of minorities and women by mostly white males/those in power, not the cause! Is in place to address an issue that, unfortunately, is still a problem today...

Will the bake sale address the fact that white women as a group have gain more from Affirmative Action than all other groups combined?

This indicates how retrograde the GOP still is... stuck in the arguments of the 80's, while the global economic crisis has gone far beyond all that nonsense.

This bake sale sounds like something from the 80's; it is a joke.

I think the bake sale is a wonderful way to show how the Democrat Party/Progressive movement panders to victimization instead of merit.
.
This would have been an argument of the 80's if the Democrats/Progressives left it in the 80's.

Chancellor Robert J Birgeneau ($500,000 salary) of University of California Berkeley displaces qualified for public university education at Cal. Californians for $50,600 payment by FOREIGN students.

The University of California Berkeley, ranked # 70 Forbes, is not increasing enrollment.$50,600 tuition FOREIGN students are accepted by Birgeneau at the expense of qualified instate students.

UC Regent Chairwoman Lansing and President Yudof agree discriminating against instate Californians for admission to UC Berkeley. Birgeneau, Yudof, Lansing need to answer to Californians.

Your opinion makes a difference; email UC Board of Regents [email protected]

SB 185, If signed by Gov. Brown, the bill would allow RACE and ETHNICITY to be considered for student admission.

If the bill was structured backwards where whites would be given priority, the protesters would be protesting the bill and calling the bill racist not the bake sale. NOW DO YOU SEE WHERE I'M COMING FROM? and I'm Hispanic, I'd rather be considered for student admission for my intelligence and accomplishments rather than my race or ethnicity.

So why do Asians have no trouble doing better than whites? Yet black people can't anywhere near match whites.

Trust me asians face the same problems that black men do. It comes down to differences in intelligence, black men have very low IQ's and that is why they fail. But why should everyone else suffer (through affirmative action) because god didn't put much between black mens ears?

Yes, it does. The rich and priviledged who have benefitted from the good ole boy, WASP system and favoritisim for whites, specifically white males. They looked like a joke. Rich kids whining, like they're rich, greedy and entitled parents about someone "supposedly" getting something they're not.

What a flapping joke! lol. There is no end to their greed, selfishness, hypocrisy and plain old arrogrance. The only dummies that fall for that bs are the working middle class who aren't even considered in their world, lol. Another joke.

I can't see what all the fuss is about. Negroes are not in Berkley, and if they are they re probably stealing something. Best to get something out of them than have them steal it all and resell it at their bus stop.

Asians are minorities too in this country and they benefit from this program. It has nothing to do with intelligence but everything to do with "white entitlement" which whites didn't have a problem with before as they were the beneficiaries of "special treatment," lol. It evened out the playing field but in the end, white woman still benefitted much more than other miniorities.

Anyway, there's no reasoning with you people. You see things the way you want to see them from your perspective and point of view which is and always has been biased. If not, Affirmative Action would have never been necessary in the first place!

Although your post was meant to be insulting, you've made a great point. Exactly how many miniority students are there taking up white people's spaces? Hardly any to warrant notice, let alone a hypocritcal bake sale from spoiled, entitled, Republican WASP kids, lol.
