I'm part Cherokee. Does that mean if I identify as a woman I get it free?
Plot twist they're selling people
@Joseph The Broseph, that's what I thought at first
@Joseph The Broseph, well you get what you pay for
@Joseph The Broseph, actual plot twist it looks like they are republicans
So if I identify as a Native American woman I get them for free?
@Totrollornottotroll, that is my interpretation
@Totrollornottotroll, I like this comment, but you have unfair advantage.
@Totrollornottotroll, yep. Take them all and then resell them for 75 cents for everyone.
@Totrollornottotroll, Makes sense to me. And if they deny you, just say they're oppressing you.
I am always surprised when people think racism only applies to all races expect "whites"
@urbanfro, The argument is that racism can only truly exist when accompanied by systemic power. But by that logic, a KKK memeber is a racist while standing in the U.S. But the second he steps into Mexico, he loses his "Systemic Power" and is no longer a racist. By that "logic."
@Termy, I think that is the best shut down to the idea of "reverse racism" (which btw is oxymoronic) that I have ever read.... I will forever use this response when someone tells me that you can't be racist against white people
This is racist af
@benderama, No it isn't, it's against white men
@Captain Magma, Cause that's totally how "equality" works. It's not like we should just break the cycle of discrimination by judging others based on the individual or anything.
@TheRatMan, I'm pretty sure it was a joke.
@TheRatMan, when MLK said that people should be judged by their character and not the color of their skin, what he really meant was white people need to pay more and feel guilty for being white while we create programs and organizations to assist minorities over white people regardless of who deserves it more
@Captain Magma, which is a race buddy
@State Pooper, I realize that buddy. No one calls it racism if white people are the ones targeted, buddy.
@Captain Magma, it's still racism. The definition of racism is "prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of a different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior."
Or "the belief that all members of each race possess characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to another race or races."
Since Caucasian is a race, that means that discrimination against Caucasians is just as much racism as discrimination against Native Americans, Indians, or Africans.
@Captain Magma, Excellent bait son. Keep up the good work
@RustyFapwagon, I'm trying to identify the people against white supremacy, so we know who to take out first. The South will rise again!
@Captain Magma, fuggin Christ that's funny
So if I am white but was born in Africa and then immigrated to the U.S can I identify as African American?
@Lena0827, yeah, go right ahead
@Lena0827, I actually have a friend like this. Her mom, a white woman, was born and lived in South Africa but moved to the States and ended up having kids there. She says she could get a fat scholarship but decided it'd be pretty fvcked up to be that white kid that milked the system while not having to go through the same struggle
@Comment Stalker, what struggle? Paying for college?
@WelI Obviously, well obviously. Also racial profiling etc. She didn't one to be the one white girl who got a scholarship for African American students on a technicality
@Comment Stalker, considering most of the "struggles of blacks" is bs, she should have took the scholarship
@Lena0827, yes. The funny part is very few blacks in America are actually African American. They're just Americans.
@SWAT the fireman, I'm curious what blacks in other countries call themselves. African-United Kingdomian? African-Canadian?
@Lena0827, I actually know a white guy from South Africa that does this on everything he fills out and then people are always so shocked that he is white, even though he is more African American than any black person who has never been to Africa
@Richard Cypher, they just say black
Is charging different prices based on race and sex, like... you know... a step back, overall?
Also, I call bullshjt on their idea of equality. Where's the pricing for piles of cocaine?
@Colombian Sugar, i believe this was a demonstration at a collage that some students did to show that gender and race politics are BS as well as racist. they got shut down by a bunch of crybabies even though they had all the proper papers filed with the school.
But this could be a different one. (Shrugs)
@Colombian Sugar, this was a college republican group making fun of affirmative action and teaching the uninformed how it works through use of baked goods. It pissed a lot of people off and was shut down so the offended could find the nearest safe space to deal with it all
@The Eye of the Hawk, there we go, you explained it much better lol
Being totally serious, this type of thing sickens me. Charging differing amounts of money based on race is every bit as racist no matter which races are charged more.
This is being part of the problem, not part of the solution.
@I Are Lebo, that's the whole point of the protest. The sale is showing how stupid affirmative action is.
@Oujosh29, that's not affirmative action. That's simply straight up racism.
@I Are Lebo, no, it's not. It is a demonstration showing racism in our degrading society. They are showing how unfair whites are being treated, especially straight, white males. If you are not white, you are put up on a pedestal by society and praised. They are not being racist in any context.
@Osama bin Dead, what they are doing is absolutely racist. Just becuase theyre it to bring attention to an issue doesnt mean what theyre doing isnt racist. Theyre trying to prove a point(maybe?) by commiting racist acts.
@Osama bin Dead, exactly as GunLovingMerican said. Doing something racist to bring awareness to racism doesn't make it not racist. This setup, at least judging from this one picture, does not look ironic at all to me. If they are actually charging the same price to all customers, then this is a matter of poor PR.
But the instant you charge different prices based on sex or ethnicity for a product or service that has no correlation to those attributes, that is what discrimination is. The reasoning behind this discrimination is irrelevant.
@I Are Lebo, maybe it is poor pr, but I get what they are trying to do here. I'm sure they are not intending to be racist at all, just turned out different than they were expecting
@Osama bin Dead, they need to try to see what their actions look like from an outsiders perspective. Many people (myself included occasionally) struggle with being objective.
"The road to hell is paved with good intentions".
@I Are Lebo, very good choice of words. I agree with you
@Osama bin Dead, thanks. I have to admit, were I to see this type of setup in real life, I'd probably end up doing something I'd regret. Being a Caucasian Jew, having grown up in an environment as multi cultural as I can imagine, and being the grandson of four holocaust survivors, I have zero patience for the "you can't be racist against white people" mindset.
If they actually tried to charge me more money for being white, I'd take one of the cupcakes and walk off without paying while flipping them the bird, maintaining direct eye contact the whole time.
@I Are Lebo, I agree, saying "you can't be racist against white people" is in of itself racist. LOL, I would do the same thing. I just wish all forms of racism could come to an end, but sadly I don't see that coming to fruition.
@Osama bin Dead, I would walk up, and I'd point at the sign and ask "is this serious?" If they said yes, I'd tear the sign off and tear it up.
@Osama bin Dead, but I totally agree with you
@I Are Lebo, I'd have to say they had that coming. I guess I was confused on what these people were actually implying. I suppose we will never truly know because we weren't there. Oh well. Of they are actually being racist, we would need to smash those cupcakes in their faces
@Osama bin Dead, I was thinking something more along the lines of dumping something disgusting over the table and cupcakes, thereby ruining their work in baking and decorating, yet not crossing the line to a point where you might be charged with felony assault.
When committing crimes, it's always important to keep the plausible worst case scenario to something you can afford to risk. 💫
@I Are Lebo, heh, thank you for the good advice sir!
@I Are Lebo, charging different prices based on sex or ethnicity is exactly what affirmative action does, they are just putting it in a more relatable situation, so that people that would normally support AA but not support this bake sale can take a step back and see how fvcked up AA really is.
@BigfootUnibrowMan, where exactly does affirmative action charge different prices based on ethnicity?
I've always been under the impression that affirmative action has more to do with giving jobs to minorities to fill quotas. While still wrong, it's less wrong than straight up charging more for being white or male.
@I Are Lebo, Affirmative action, charges minorities less for college, gives them scholarships not offered to white students and will allow them admission over a white student with better test scores and gpa.
@BigfootUnibrowMan, the third part is unacceptable, but the first two are understandable, if the program is only meant to be short term.
At this point just take me back to the 1950s
@Trooper of the Storm, this case blacks are getting an unfair advantage. Why would you go back to a time when it'd the exact opposite?
@Oujosh29, my comment didn't have anything to do with blacks but OK.
Black price should be $1.20
If we're gonna be racist might as well bring back the 3/5 rule
You got to love when ppl think this is good anti-racism
Actually, Asians do better financially than white people in the U.S.
@Monad Vairocana, and its harder for them to get into good colleges. The system sucks.
I have dark hair and dark eyes, and I'm fluent in Spanish. Makes me wonder if I could pass as a Latino
@Ted Mosby is a jerk, yup. Say what you want to say you are (within reason) and people have no choice really but to believe you.
I'm kinda okay with this cuz I can just take them all for free. Free cupcakes are better than morals
Is it free for Native American women
This wouldn't even have the intended effect of cost white people more, you'd simply sell fewer cupcakes to white people. Aside from that, don't you think categorizing the races (even excluding white) like that is a bit racist? Like even if you don't think racism against whites exists, should the price be the same for all the other races?
Native american woman comes up, requests 1000.
I'll take 2 caucasians and one native american. Does the African American come with fries?
There's a lot of confusing things happening here. Joke or not? Republican elephant or not? Is the meme maker missing a joke or not?
If this is real..... Oh man.
If this is a joke.... Oh man.
@Iswearimfunny, im thinking maybe the elephant could be a joke, possibly a sign that says "republican't" with an elephant with a stupid face. But I may be stretching
A white man should part a native American woman to buy all of them and then he should sell them at an inflated price.
So we can own them again!
One can be racist against white men too
I'm pretty sure this is to show the pay inequality among races, so a black person makes $0.75 for every $2 a white person makes. Its a demonstration, please stop crying racism...
@wannaburrito, pay inequality? Between races? Youre joking right?
@wannaburrito, they are clearly selling cupcakes, not saying wage differences
@wannaburrito, that was my original thought too, but then I noticed the GOP elephant. This is another interesting take on how equality works. Through different affirmative action programs those groups that are paying less can do so because of state or federal aid. Make whatever conclusion you want from it, but in the end both sides will have valid points
@Silver6456, It was done as a protest by republican students who wanted to show how ridiculous they think affirmative action has become.
Of course its wrong. Asian Americans make $1.10 per dollar a white American makes. The innacuracies
Just say you're a trans woman.... what're they gonna do?
Equality is giving everyone the same amount of something no matter their background. Equity is giving people the amount of something they need to survive. Know the difference
I'm white, but was born in Venezuela. But I'm also half Hispanic. So do I pay for the Hispanic price, or the in between Asian price?
Background info for the pic: this was staged by a conservative group of college students to show how unfair and insulting it is for colleges to lower standards for any non white or male students so they can get in (i.e. Giving bonuses to SAT scores if you're black). They did it to prove a point that race or gender shouldn't have anything to do with it because you're screwing over other people that way. The whole idea was to get people upset to get their point across, and they were successful.
I'll just give my black friend a buck fifty and he gets a free cupcake and I get $.50 off of the $2.00 white charge. I'll consider it a discount for being kind :)
Guess who missed tge point
Pretty sure this is either fake or a joke, considering most conservatives mock this kind of crap, often in jokes.
Does this mean my homies of the lower spectrum can enjoy this stuff? As a WHITE person with high levels of melanin and lack the y chromosome think they are still getting ripped off. Everyone should boycott and go the other place that sells them to everyone at equal prices. That is; 2 dollars for everyone! May be more expensive but they are fair. Or something.
@TurtleBlink, if they were to make prices the same it be like a 1$ or 1.25 cuz they wont be having to give out a profit loss for the peiple under that.
