Bake sale shutdown draws fire

DALLAS, Sept. 25 (UPI) -- Southern Methodist University is drawing fire from conservative students for closing down a student bake sale intended to protest affirmative action.

The Young Conservatives of Texas sponsored the sale, which charged prices based on the customer's race or gender. White males paid $1 for a cookie, white woman 75 cents, Hispanics 50 cents, and blacks a quarter.

SMU officials closed the sale Tuesday after 45 minutes because they were concerned about shouting and students crowding the table. A black student also filed a discrimination complaint saying the sale was offensive.

"This was not an issue about free speech," SMU Student Center Director Tim Moore told The Dallas Morning News.

The YCT said similar bake sales have been held on campuses across the nation and they accused SMU of censorship.

"All we are asking for is an opportunity to express our opinions on an important issue to our peers," said David Rushing, chairman of the YCT chapter on the campus.

I was there.

but I wasnt offended.

until they stopped it, that is.

Oh, well. It was a good point, but it could have been more tastefully proven.

I was dissapointed when they shut it down. Yet another example of the double standard that exists in this country.

I swear, everyone lives in Dallas.. who woulda thunk it. :P

I thought it was a fantastic way to make a point.. and I must admit, I wasnt offended one bit. 

If I was of a different race, other then white as could be, maybe my take on it would have been different.  But I thought it was pretty bad ass that white males had to pay more and as a female, I finally got a little break I could sink my teeth into :smile:  It's a fuckload better then being asked to windex the glass ceiling.

the only ones offended by it should be the ones agreeing with the point they were trying to make.
