    If you do the math, that means one caucasion and one hispanic bought a cookie.

    That's what I love about Mexicans: He didn't give a shit; he was just hungry and found a good deal.

    It's SMU dude, they don't have 6 black students.

    This is just funny and a good way to protest. This should not have been shut down, but it is a private school so they can do whatever they want.

    Didn't the young conservatives at UCLA do the same thing a while back?

    I saw this on another message board. I don't see it as racist so much as an exercise in "the way things are". Compare it to those hunger dinners where everyone pays the same price, but only 2 people get a full steak dinner, 5 get a full vegetable dinner, and everyone else gets one cup of rice.

    It's been done on several other campuses without problems. The biggest problem I see is SMU students having less than a $50 bill to pay for the cookies with!

    Actually, it's a pu$$y protest. If the YCT wanted to do something really analogous as a protest, they would have appointed African-Americans as their President, Vice President, and Treasurer.

    Blacks and latinos get to buy stuff at lower prices than whites?

    So Asians would have to pay $2.00 for a cookie?

    No, first they would have to build the railroad and then sit in a confinement camp for four years. Then after inflation maybe we would sell them a cookie for $2.

    But that would require finding three conservative African-Americans.

    Nah, they sold 3 cookies, so that means they sold to either 3 hispanics; 3 black people; a white guy and 2 black people; or a white chick, a hispanic, and a black.

    3 black people equates to 75 cents, not $1.50

    No wonder nobody can intelligently comment on the US economy, tax laws, or basically anything to do with money.

    I think you have a flawed representative sample.

    I wasn't questioning the results, only the methodology.

    They were probably illegals and still are the only ones stimulating the economy.

    I'm thinking it wouldn't be such a problem if everybody comes to an agreement and just applies to different schools instead of all going ape crazy over UCLA and Berkeley and the other 'mother colleges'.
