At the University of California Berkeley.
Advertise to bake sale with different prices for different people depending on their race engenders a -- here white Caucasian people paid two bucks.
Asians will pay a dollar fifty African American somebody five cents native Americans a quarter.
As all women what -- kind of a point where they trying to make where there are trying to talk about affirmative.
Treating people differently based on the color skin is inherently unfair.
And I'm -- -- affirmative action type legislation.
That change people differently based on race.
Is insult former Saddam racism and it's discriminatory so.
The purpose of the big sale is to upset people about charging people differently on based on the color of their skin.
Well a John Stossel tried -- sailed just like this last year and He joins us live to tell us what healer -- wanted to.
I learned that it makes people mad I was just doing it because Bucknell head shot one of these bake sales down and I'm glad the Berkeley as far as we noted that is allowing it to go on.
But it's just a good way to make people think about affirmative action.
And the cupcake sale in a way is saying this is what the university's doing -- it's affirmative action problems he's very.
That policy have to have higher SAT scores if you're Asian and get their priceless Asians should been at the top this race.
