A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Bake sale nixed: As has been done at numerous campuses, conservative students at Southern Methodist University had an affirmative action bake sale. Unlike other campuses, school officials shut the bake sale down because it created a "hostile environment."

This just in, the real-world is a "hostile environment."

The quote in ths story that really got me was one by a black student who was offended by the bake sale.


Matt Houston, a 19-year-old sophomore, called the group's price list offensive.

"My reaction was disgust because of the ignorance of some SMU students," said Houston, who is black. "They were arguing that affirmative action was solely based on race. It's not based on race. It's based on bringing a diverse community to a certain organization."


Yeah, it's based on bringing a diverse community based on race to a certain organization. Until affirmative action is based on something like a person's financial background or political viewpoint, then affirmative action is based on race. Denial isn't just a river in Egypt.

My reaction is disgust because of the ignorance of a SMU student named Matt Houston.
