Caitlin Esch is covering the bake-sale to do at UC Berkeley today and snapped the photos below. The “Increase Diversity Bake Sale” is being held by Berkeley College Republicans. The event, intended as a satirical protest against SB 185, affirmative action legislation being considered by Gov. Jerry Brown, prices baked good lower for non-white students.
