Texas Tech Affirmative Action Bake Sale

The Young Conservatives of Texas at Texas Tech hosted a bake sale Wednesday on campus. This wasn’t your ordinary bake sale though, it was an “Affirmative Action Bake Sale” and yes I’m sure it offended some people. Good job I say! Here is the press release about the event from yesterday:

Lubbock, TX – The Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT) at Texas Tech is hosting an “Affirmative Action Bake Sale” on Wednesday, April 27th, 2011, from 10 am to 2 pm in Texas Tech’s Free Speech Zone.

To satirize and draw attention to the injustice of racial favoritism in academia, Tech YCT will be selling the same cookies at prices relative to the buyer’s race or ethnicity. Faculty, staff, and students of races currently favored by liberal elites, like African-American or Hispanic, will be able to buy the cookies at a lower price.

“Racial preferences and favoritism are not just or fair. They only cause more conflict and injustice,” said Jeramy Kitchen, the Tech YCT Chairman. He went on to say that, “On the state level, our organization favors prohibiting public universities from using race in admissions and hiring.”

Affirmative action for university admissions was banned in Texas in 1996 (Hopwood v. Texas) but then overturned over by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2003 (Gratz v. Bollinger) stating that race, gender, and ethnicity can again be used as a factor in admissions as long as a quota or point system is not used.

Like I said earlier, good job to the YCT for making people aware of affirmative action. And if you guys offended people, good job as well. Do you think the group got their point across? Was the bake sale a good thing to do?
