The FSU College Republicans hosted an affirmative action bake sale to show how discriminatory the policy is.
Just as educational institutions (and even some employers) split their applicants up and give them different advantages or disadvantages based solely on the color of their skin, we did the same. We gave full cookies to blacks and Hispanics, half cookies to whites and quarter cookies to Asians.
The protest went off without a hitch, save the occasional expletive-infused attack by campus liberals. SGA and the University didn’t get involved, which is good considering these types of events have been shut down by liberal administrations throughout the country.
We had many respectful and logical debates and changed a lot of people’s minds with the literature we gave out. I’ll post a copy of that sheet when I get it back.
Anyway, here are a few pictures that I promised I’d put up. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to get any of myself. Nonetheless, you get the idea.
The image of a bunch of self-satisfied white kids handing a Black person a cookie and screaming “I HOPE YOU’RE HAPPY NOW!!!” is probably a lot more evocative than they realize.
