They do have a point.
Just look at the flowers Lizzie, just look at the flowers.
Their point is pretty well summed up in the following statement by one of the bake sale organizers.
"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."
Gun control laws make about as much sense as taking ex-lax to cure a cough.
Is that fair ??
Affirmative action is not about fair or merit, it is about so called balancing the scales, read tipping them in favor of minorities and particular etnic groups or races.
Here is a quote from the article: We all know about the so called "affirmative action" laws and what they are all about.
Upon further reseach I found this, a history of affirmitive action compliants, from not only California but other colleges too..
In my humble opinion what all this is leading up to is free education for illegal immigrants,from our US government grants money... It is just wonderful ain't it?(Sarcastically speaking that is) The California S.B. 185 if signed into law would be in opposition to Proposition 209 AKA California Civil Rights Initiative, approved in 1996
This link has more details about the bake sale and the motive behind it:
The other thing that has always bothered me in this country is that the state of California is the testing ground for all new laws. Once a California state law is passed the the Federal Government will either adopt that law and make in National or ratify it in some way and then make it Federal Law.
Pure "Outragous" I tell ya!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Oh well what can one expect when a state like California offers political leaders like: Dianne Feinstein and Barbara Boxer, etc.
This is just another experiment in political correctness; merit means nothing, or not much. Only racial, ethnic, and/or sex are considered, with academic standing coming in last. Sounds good until you realize your doctor was way down in the ranks academically, barely squeaked by, in fact, but got put to the head of the line because of some other factor(s). Academic standing first, middle, and last in admission, and the devil take the hindmost.
― Douglas Adams
Ethnicity describes the cultural identity of groups of humans and is very much real, but race is about as real as the tooth fairy.
Just watch the old Star Trek episode "Let That Be Your Last Battlefield" and it really makes a great point.
