A group of Republican students at UC Berkeley is under fire for plans to hold a bake sale where the cost of a cookie is based on the race of the person buying. The group says it's meant as a satire of legislation that would allow California universities to consider race and gender in college admissions. What is and isn't offensive in political commentary? And who should get to decide?

Guests:

Andy Nevis, executive director of the Berkeley College Republicans, the club hosting the bake sale

Vishalli Loomba, president of the Associated Students of the University of California (ASUC)
