your granddad gave me his business card.

by brokeymcpoverty on October 20, 2011


So here’s a quick glimpse into what my life is like.

Saturday night a few weekends ago. I’m at a bar. Well, it’s technically Sunday morning, like 1, 2 am. My friends and I all notice an older man walk in wearing, like, a miniature leather safari hat. That’s the best way I can explain it. We look, we chuckle, we move on with our mozzarella sticks and assorted bar grub.

A few minutes later, I’m in line waiting for the bathroom and he just so happens to be hanging out by the door. The fact that he was just casually hanging out by the bathroom door, I think, is a good indication of this man’s level of oddness/ridiculousness. Anyway, I’m doin the pee-pee dance and walks over to me, because this is a GREAT time for conversation, apparently.

what they don’t tell you about those diversity bake sales.

by brokeymcpoverty on September 28, 2011

So Tuesday, UC Berkeley went ahead with its purposely racist “Diversity Bake Sale.” The bake sale charges white people more for baked goods than people of color, with women getting a $0.25 discount. The purpose of this is to protest what the group sees as the racist practice of considering an applicant’s race and/or gender in the school admission process.

If you’ve been following for a whlie, you know that I went to a pretty racist school. What you don’t know is that I actually attended one such bake sale. And what else you don’t know is this: sure, minorities get discounted goods, but those goods are not created equally.

I attended the sale with a good friend of mine, Adam, a white male (I am a black female), and we noticed something interesting after reading the ingredients labels on our cupcakes (we checked after I noticed that mine was surprisingly bitter while Adam’s apparently tasted like good times and happiness). I saved the labels:

Guess which one the white folks got?

So sure. My cupcake was discounted. That’s kind of just a drop in the bucket compared to everything else I still have to digest.
