Shame On University Of Texas Young Conservatives of Texas


Conservatives

Here we go again. Right Wing Conservatives doing what Right Wing Conservatives do best, promote hate. These students at my alma mater and my daughter’s alma mater must be lacking attention at Texas’ most liberal and better universities. Why else would they decide to be so ignorant about Affirmative Action to put on such a display.

They should be embarrassed that this story was featured at NBCLatino.

A group of students at the University of Texas hosted a bake sale Sept. 25 that spurred much controversy on the topic of affirmative action.

The bake sale was held by The Young Conservatives of Texas (YCT-UT) and included “special pricing” for customers based on their race and ethnicity.

On the YCT-UT Facebook page and on Twitter, pictures showed the signs with the brownie prices:  whites were charged $2; Asians, $1.50; Latinos, $1; blacks, $.75 and Native Americans $.25. There was even a $.25 discount for all women.

Lorenzo Garcia, President of the University of Texas Young Conservatives Club, explained to Total Frat Move how his group sees affirmative action and what led to the controversial bake sale.

“We’re against it,” said Garcia, speaking about affirmative action. “We don’t feel that it’s fair. It should be based on merit alone, instead of something you can’t control.”

Garcia, who described himself as a Hispanic from a middle-class family, says he is “kind of living proof that the whole [pro affirmative action] argument is complete conjecture. If they really want equality, to quote Martin Luther King Jr., judge a man not by the color of his skin but the content of his character, and that’s what we strive to abide by or live by, and they [liberals] are completely hypocritical about it. We’re just sick of it, so we’re just trying to prove a point, and stick it to them, to show them why they’re wrong.”

Funny that the president of the group is Lorenzo Garcia, someone that a few years ago would not have been welcomed  at the University of Texas Austin. Then again adoption of that ideology  is anathema to rational thinking.

The sad part is that this table is being run by young people. Word on the ground however is that they were ignored for the most part. They were marginalized as they should.

  1. This “affirmative action bake sale” busines is not an original idea.

    By the way, I’m your biggest fan. I’ve agreed with virtually every word of yours I’ve read, and as a writer, I admire the way it’s written. it seems we’ve been separated at birth–at least politically.

    My name is Karlyn Issac Lotney; do look me up on Facebook, if you are so inclined. I post most of my writing, political and otherwise, on my timeline. My email address is fairybutch@gmail.com. I would love to count you among my friends.

  2. Government quotas and government imposed affirmative action is violence and hate, since they are backed by guns, and breed more hate an animosity. They are the opposite of ending segregation.

    But before Democrats get to hector anyone about race, you need to stop run ivy the slave trade where you fund your party by selling poor children of color to educrat cartels.

  3. @Bruce Majors, a group of interested Northeastern residents are sending you a self-addressed stamped envelope marked ‘Translation, Please!” We know you just said something but we are not certain…(Is it written in Texan or something?)
