They should charge 10 dollars a cupcake in order to break even because they have to pay their employees 10 dollars an hour in min wage.

"You can have a discussion and bring awareness, but you can't go out and discriminate to make that happen," said Bob Stoll, director of Student Life. "They had poor judgment."

Several black students have demanded an apology,

For getting a discount? The head of the College GOP needs to be more strident on this matter, and say he is doing nothing different than the University does with admissions. And if they want HIM to stop THEY should stop handing out admissions andscholarships along the same racial and gender lines.

Student Kim Pierson said the issue is not affirmative action, but the fact that the College Republicans "crossed a bold line" that subjected students to blatant discrimination.

Kimmie, affirmative action IS blatant discrimination.

For what its worth, every program run by the department I work for (under the college engineering) is expressly aimed at recruiting woman and other "minorities not represented in the sciences".

Coincidentally, me and the other computer techie are the only two males who work in the office :P

And yes, it pains me to be a cog in the wheel of diversity, but it pays the bills :P

If this makes it to some Court of Law, I'd wager that the
ACLU will NOT rush to defend these students

This time, they should give away car washes (for free) to whites maybe two, three... hell four weeks ahead of time. Oh and when Native Americans come to pay for their wash ...take their money then beat the hell out of 'em and send them on their way. Now that makes perfect sense...reveal the true reality of this thing.
