College Republicans have been engaging in guerrilla theater, dramatizing the unfairness of Affirmative Action by selling cookies at lower prices to favored groups:

Want to buy a cookie? If you are a white male, that'll be $1; for white females, 75 cents; blacks, 25 cents. The price structure is the message.
The response by colleges and universities is usually to find an excuse to shut down these satirical acts of free political speech, and even to blame the Republicans for acts of violence and vandalism against them!

This is consistent with the elite view in 2003, during which the Supreme Court, following the whims of Sandra Day (Bull) O'Connor, has twice demonstrated its support for this attitude. First, it enshrined racism in its new disguise of Required Actions of Colleges In Support of Multiculturalism® (abbreviated RACISM). More recently it upheld the Campaign Finance "Reform" Act's suppression of political speech.

At Fox (where else could this story be told?), Wendy McElroy tells the inspiring story of this latest civil rights trend, where young college students are being harassed and attacked by the modern Bull Conners who are still defending racial discrimination.
