    What started out as a bake sale now has the College community up in arms in a new debate on the ever-current issue of cultural diversity on campus. The controversy stems from the new student organization, the Sons of Liberty, and their anti-affirmative action bake sale that occurred last Saturday and sold cookies and brownies to students at different prices based on race. The issue has moved far beyond affirmative action, however, and is causing students to question how comfortable the College is for minority students. “Absolutely the College cannot allow discriminatory practices to occur on this campus, period. And...

    Hey guys you've probably read the thread about us having an affirmative action bakesale here at IU. I thought since we had it I'd give you an update. Well as you can probably guess it's been a real firestorm. When we had it there were probably 40-70 black people yelling at us for 2 hrs. No violence, and the University did not attempt to shut us down. So far they have actually been very supportive of our freedom of speech. However, after the bakesale in a time period of only 5 hrs the Black Student Union organized a forum where...

    David E. Bernstein, a professor of law at George Mason University, is the author of "You Can't Say That! The Growing Threat to Civil Liberties from Antidiscrimination Laws" (Cato Institute, 2003). Is it a no-no for students to satirize affirmative action at the University of California-Irvine? The answer is a resounding "Yes!" Last week, the university administration shut down an "affirmative action bake sale" run by the College Republicans. Members of the group offered students donuts at prices ranging from ten cents to one dollar, depending on each student's race and gender. The obvious message: It's wrong to treat people...

    Once again, a politically correct university has shut down conservative speech on campus. On Wednesday, October 7, the College Republicans at the University of Washington struck at UW's racist admission policies by holding an Affirmative Action Bake Sale. We priced cookies differently for people, depending on their race. (A black student could buy a cookie for 30 cents, while a white student had to pay a dollar, etc.). We priced the cookies according to the same categories the University of Washington uses in its admission application. With a little flour, sugar and a dash of street comedy, we set out to show the campus that...

    A group of Southern Methodist University students recently taught a lesson in practical philosophy better than those they are likely to receive in their classes, and the recipients of the lesson are hopping mad. To demonstrate the moral absurdity of the kind of affirmative action principles practiced by many colleges and universities, the SMU students applied the principle to a bake sale. The price of a cookie for a white male was 1 dollar; for a female, 75 cents; for a Hispanic, 50 cents; and for a black, 25 cents. Individuals who believe that admissions standards at universities should be...

    This past Thursday, September 24th, was a dark day for freedom of speech on college campuses. An Affirmative Action bake sale organized by The Young Conservatives of Texas was shut down by the administration at Southern Methodist University in Dallas. The idea of the bake sale was to show that discrimination is wrong by selling cookies at prices that corresponded to the consumer’s race. While white males were asked to pay one dollar, hispanic and black students paid less. The administration responded to this act of protest by closing the bake sale down because a few students claimed to be...

    DALLAS (Reuters) - Southern Methodist University said on Thursday it shut down a bake sale on campus by a conservative political group that sold cookies at different prices, based on a customer's race and gender. The Young Conservatives of Texas, a nonpartisan group that mostly campaigns for Republican-backed policies and candidates, said the bake sale was aimed at bringing attention to what it sees as flaws in affirmative action policies. The university said the group's actions were offensive. Cookies were priced at $1 for white males, 75 cents for white females, 50 cents for Hispanics and 25 cents for blacks....

    Several Bruin Republicans parodied affirmative action by selling Oreos, Twinkies and crackers for race-based prices on Bruin Walk on Wednesday, but they never meant it to end in chaos. The "Affirmative Action Bake Sale, Reloaded," was a follow-up to a February sale put on by the same students, this time with emphasis on offensive stereotypes applied to minorities who oppose affirmative action. Although the sale was obscured by a cement mixer for much of the morning, by early afternoon the table was surrounded by students – some of them approving, many of them angry. The debate grew heated as Bruin...
