Backlash today. Accepted practice tomorrow. Required behavior next week.
Oh well, that's important. Not recognized as an "official student organization."
Is the New York Daily News recognized as an "official news organization?"
The real question is
Do they take EBT for payment? Only EBT
That sorts out the privileged..
Apparently that campus doesn’t have a police force.
“once people start yelling, destroying our stuff
and breaking everything on the table, it makes it
hard to have good discussions”
So...since there’s no ‘hispanic’ race, why aren’t they charged the Caucasian rate?
I’m half-black. From the waist down.
So tell the staffer that you identify as the race corresponding with the lowest price.
Are the people that are mad ok with the race quotas to get into universities?
“Some students gathered and watched the bake sale controversy unfold, a group of them suggesting Turning Point USA was unfairly targeting minorities on campus.”
No, they are just exposing the hypocrisy by which our government demands we treat all people as equals while that same government insists that certain groups are less evolved/genetically inferior...
You mean they can't have their cake and eat it, too?
Wow the Hispanics are going to have a fit being lumped in with the negroes.
With a 2% Asian, 2.5% black, 27% white and 56% Hispanic population. They’re going to have a hard time with those sales figures.
Plenty of them are only there because of gender quotas; when white women are no longer considered “disadvantaged” (a situation that enrages entitled blacks), then they will also oppose affirmative action. For the time being, they are beneficiaries - but only in the short run. They get free degrees and token jobs, but in the end their family trees end when they can’t find a partner for breeding. Too many of those potential partners have been economically marginalized by those very same policies...
Asians $1.50, Caucasians $1.00, African American and Hispanics $0.50.
I’d say that’s racist towards Asians. I’d say this is how it is for real in many places in the world. And, I’d also say, it’s racial profiling based on the seller’s interpretation of someone’s race. What if a Hispanic person has blond hair? are they charged the white or the Hispanic rate? What about mixed blood people? Do they get to choose or is that the arbitrary opinion of the seller?
Expel the students - in the EU they’d be arrested.
Wrong, like affirmative action.
The ones most angry about this are the ones that benefit the most from affirmative action.
