Tim Wise owns privileged republican white college student over racist bake sale
 
Quote:

(CNN) -- Campus Republicans at the University of California Berkeley have cooked up a storm of controversy with their plans for a bake sale.
But it's not your everyday collegiate fundraiser they've got in mind.

They've developed a sliding scale where the price of the cookie or brownie depends on your gender and the color of your skin.

During the sale, scheduled for Tuesday, baked goods will be sold to white men for $2.00, Asian men for $1.50, Latino men for $1.00, black men for $0.75 and Native American men for $0.25. All women will get $0.25 off those prices.

"The pricing structure is there to bring attention, to cause people to get a little upset," Campus Republican President Shawn Lewis, who planned the event, told CNN-affiliate KGO. "But it's really there to cause people to think more critically about what this kind of policy would do in university admissions."

Lewis says it's a way to make a statement about pending legislation that would let the California universities consider race or national origin during the admission process.

But the young Republicans have been on the receiving end of a fierce backlash. Reaction has been so negative they've been forced to cancel their customary lunchtime tabling duties, according to KGO.

Lewis told CNN's Don Lemon that they expected a certain amount of opposition but not the level of outrage they experienced.

"We didn't expect the volume, the amount of response that we got," Lewis said. "In the first few hours, hundreds of posts on our Facebook page. And the tone of some of the responses -- we expected people to be upset. We didn't expect personal threats to be made. They were implicit and explicit threats made to the organizers of the event, from burning down the table to throwing our baked goods at us and other kinds of physical threats."

Tim Wise, author of the book "White Like Me: Reflections on Race from a Privileged Son," calls the bake sale a "sarcastic and rather smarmy slap at people of color."

"There are a lot of ways to make a point about your disagreement with affirmative action," Wise told Lemon Saturday night.

"I get the joke," he continued. "How very original. It's been done for 15 years. The point that I think needs to be made ... is that by the time anyone steps on a college campus ... there has already been 12- to 13-years of institutionalized affirmative action for white folks, that is to say, racially embedded inequality, which has benefited those of us who are white. And it's only at the point of college admissions that these folks seem to get concerned with color consciousness."

Lewis insists, however, that Campus Republicans will go ahead with their bake sale and are committed to their controversial pricing structure.

I'd like to hear some of your thoughts about this. Do you guys think that affirmative action should be banned? Please do not mention Obama's success.

its racist .. stop doing it .. and continue with our lives .. equality all around to tell you the truth if there weren't things in place to have colleges take people of diffewrant ethnic backrounds i think it would be alot harder to get in ... racism is probably stronger then it ever was in a sense because in this day and age its not considered "racism" ... if you get what im saying ? ... and the only people who dont see it as a problem are the people who don't have to experience it... i mean words only have power if you give them power...

but FUCK that shit if your a MAN and someone calls you a faggot , spic , dickhead , nigger , or any type of derogatory term .. BEAT THAT NIGGAS ASS AND STOP ACTING LIKE YOUR ABOVE IT OR CIVILIZED SOMETIMES THINGS NEED TO BE SOLVED WITH VIOLENCE ... i bet if you beat the complete shit out of a neonazi theyll atleast think twice about calling you a nigger or anyother black person for that matter...


ALSO racism towards whites needs to stop too ... and the stereotypes for whites aren't even negative lol okay they're polite , go to work , dont beat their kids , live in nice neighborhoods, talk proper and have good marraiges...

what it all comes down to is your ENVIROMENT if race wasnt looked at by people in this day and age there would really be no stand out traits between races... and i fuck race its the cultural influence if anything... a white person growing up in an all african american neighborhood like fucking watts or something could be just as or even more so ignorant as his black counter parts.

you notice how its a privideged white liberal faggot doing most of the hating.


White liberals are the biggest enemy to white people. These politically correct contrarians whose whole agenda is to bring their own people down because they got bullied in grade and high school.


If i was black I'd be all over this bake sale. .75 cents, thats a fuckin steal. I'd be slangin cornbread loaves like crack.

What would it cost Don Lemon to purchase the baked goods?

Mr. R&B 09-25-2011 08:02 PM

He'd probably get the female's discount for being a queer.

I'm surprised!

affirmative action is bullshit.

i dont care what the job is, doctor, lawyer, cop, fireman, ect. i want the person best qualified to do that job correctly to be the one doing it.

i dont want a minority to be doing it over a white guy just because we need to "even things up". i have no problem with a minority in any of those positions. just earn it. that goes for everyone.

Olive Oil Goombah 09-26-2011 06:25 PM

its California...a liberal haven. I'm not saying liberal politics aren't necessary and needed, but when it is allowed to run amok, this type of shit happens.

Reverse discrimmination.


And its not that these liberals are for the blacks and latinos...they are not. They are anti-establishment. Doesnt matter whose on top.

In a way, its somewhat noble, but most get blinded by there own agendas and become characters

All right. Just because he's intelligent doesn't mean he's gay. He wouldn't be considered a threat, now would he?

Dr. Simon Hurt 09-26-2011 07:27 PM

^he's a queer because he's gay. as in, he really is into dudes.

EAGLE EYE 09-26-2011 07:58 PM

Yes - he is in fact a gay man. He's even said so in his videos.

If you look at his youtube or wshh video comments, most blacks believe he's trying to impose his agenda on them or equate his plight to theirs. They basically trash the guy from what I've observed.
