    Bake sales don't normally get national attention.There was a big turn out for a very controversial bake sale on the Cal campus Tuesday.

Jerry Brown's desk that would allow California public universities to consider race, ethnicity and gender in student admissions. The bill is SB185. Berkeley College Republicans posted the prices of its cookies according to race, gender...

    A Facebook post announcing plans by a UC Berkeley Republican group to sell baked goods priced according to race, gender and ethnicity - "White/Caucasian" pastries for $2 and "Black/African American pastries for 75 cents, for example - has drawn outrage on campus. "I'm ashamed to know that I go to the same school with people who would say stuff like this," responded student Skyler Hogan-Van Sickle on Facebook. "I'm really trying to figure out how someone can be this hateful." The campus Republicans, who expect to go forward with their "Increase Diversity Bake Sale" on Tuesday, say the event is...

    SB 185 was introduced by Sen.
