Just when I thought race relations were getting better and that my generation would finally conquer racism, THIS happens.
Yes. It's an affirmative action bake sale at the University of Texas, my school. The group, the "Young Conservatives of Texas", are charging white students $2.00, Asians $1.50, Hispanics $1.00, Blacks $0.75, and Native Americans $0.25. Just to add in a sprinkle of misogyny, women get $0.25 off.
The level of sheer disgust I have with this is off the charts. I feel personally offended - and I'm as white as a Klukker's sheet. These pitiful, insane little peons moved into MY school and held something this offensive, just to make a political point to further their own racism. I can only imagine how disgusted the university's vibrant minority community feels right now.
Before I continue, I'd like to point out that the University of Texas is a hotbed of liberal support. It is one of the main reasons why Austin is by far the strongest liberal bastion in the southern United States. These people do not represent us in any way. I am posting this primarily because I want to shame these people on a national stage, and make them regret their terrible actions.
Please, Kossacks - help me spread the word on this. These students need to be taught a lesson that racism is unacceptable in the 21st century.
